Thought of the Day July 29, 2022 The way of the saints

By 9:38 AM

 Today, we celebrate the feast of Saints Martha, Mary and Lazarus. Martha's gift was that of hospitality to Jesus, Mary's was that of contemplation and focus on Jesus. Lazarus' gift was perhaps that of witness about the power and love of Jesus in raising him up. Their common focus was Jesus. Their common reward was to be with Jesus forever in glory, where they continue in doing what Mary did, contemplate the beauty and glory of God. While here on earth we are called to do what each of them did, to serve, to contemplate and to witness Jesus. Then, we may with them contemplate God forever in glory. The way of the saints is the way of the Lord, given to us to follow and live.
