Lenten Links and Bridges by Anthony R. Brach

Have you ever been amazed by the wonders of the earth, life, or the universe?

Have natural disasters and tragic world events ever brought brought tears to your eyes? - "Tribulations"

Have you experienced something special in joyful moments and sorrowful times?

"Happy are you poor; the Kingdom of God is yours! Happy are you who are hungry now; you will be filled! Happy are you who weep now; you will laugh! Happy are you when people hate you, reject you, insult you, and say that you are evil, all because of the Son of Man! Be glad when that happens and dance for joy, because a great reward is kept for you in heaven. For their ancestors did the very same things to the prophets.
But how terrible for you who are rich now; you have had your easy life! How terrible for you who are full now; you will go hungry! How terrible for you who laugh now; you will mourn and weep! How terrible when all speak well of you; their ancestors said the very same things about the false prophets." -- Lk 6: 20-26

At all times - the joyful and the sorrowful, God is present. For centuries and even now, our Blessed Mother Mary and our Lord Jesus have and continue to actually appear to persons around the world. We are reminded that God exists and that He loves each and every one of us and wishes all of us, the whole human family, to return to His Love now so as to know, love, and serve Him in this life so as to be happy with Him forever in Heaven.

Where to go from here?

God invites us to meet Him in prayer - pray the Rosary with Mary our Mother, in reading and reflecting on His Word - the Bible, in the Church - meet Him in the Sacraments. Share His Light, Love, and Peace with families, friends, co-workers, colleagues, teachers, students, neighbors, the sick, and needy. God invites us to consecrate ourselves and our families to the Sacred Heart of Jesus through the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

+ St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle, be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the Devil; may God rebuke him, we humbly pray; and do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the Power of God, thrust into hell Satan and all the evil spirits who prowl throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.
