Hail Mary

Ave Maria, gratia plena, Dominus tecum.
Benedicta tu in mulieribus, et benedictus fructus ventris tui, Iesus.
Sancta Maria, Mater Dei, ora pro nobis peccatoribus, nunc, et in hora mortis nostrae. Amen.

Todays Sermon

Was about our calling to our vocations. Not just religious vocations but what we do in life. I am a wife, a mother and a nurse. Those are my callings. God had called me to these things as part of his plan. He has a reason for each of these jobs I perform.

At the end of the sermon somehow Father worked in a memo from Satan. He was talking to his legion of demons on how to keep Christians away from Jesus and developing a deepened relationship with Jesus. Some of the things were working long hours, destruction of our family as we are working and no time for family. Financial ruin by the wants of people. Buying too much because we want it, not need it. The constant bombardment of music, video, media which is not biblical in nature. The basis of this memo was ways to busy the Christians with things to keep us away from Jesus.

It was great timing because I've been thinking of those things myself and how the whole basis of desire, want, envy can have such terrible results in our lives.

It was a great ending to the sermon. I wish I had recorded it so I could remember everything he said. Perhaps I will ask for a copy of it when I go to Mass on Tuesday.
