May 29, 2013: The Generosity of God

~ by Sr. Marie Rene, S.S.J.

Dear Friends,

This past week I was contemplating the generosity of God

I was enjoying the beauty of God’s creation all around me and I began to think…how blessed we are on Earth and how generous God the Father is to send us the Holy Spirit to sanctify us…and to give us Jesus to help teach us where our true treasure is, which is Heaven.

I thought to myself, how easy Jesus makes it for us to lay up our treasures with Him. If we give a cup of water, if we give even a penny to help the poor, if we share our food, if we do the tiniest work in His Name, no matter what, that work is a treasure waiting for us in Heaven.

It is amazing how much Jesus bends and makes it easy for us to want to go to Heaven. To imagine an eternity in joy with the Trinity, the Holy Family, the Angels and Saints forever has me saying Lord Your love for us is enough to bring tears to my heart!

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph,

Sister Rene
