MapQuest, Google, GPS. We have so many ways to tell us how to go from one place to another and when we are finally lost, we just punch in, our home address and it tells us the way home. Do we know how to get back to our Father's Home though? Do we know the directions? Can we put "Heaven" in the GPS and find the correct directions? I am intent on, (when the Automobile company's finally invent it) purchasing a auto-install, passengers side steering column for my lovely wife to be able to navigate our directions home when I am driving. (Most of the time she is right…but just don't tell her that I admitted it)!
From the numbers of women and men in our Catholic Parishes, it certainly seems to me that the women TRULY have the directions Home much better than the men, in their regular attendance. One thing I have always preached, B.I.B.L.E. = Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth. The Bible is our "Roadmap" Home to our Father. They Holy Bible tells us EVERYTHING we need to know down to the exact instructions. This cannot be found in the missalette, Catechism, or any other self help books. The writings of the Bible were given to us by "Divine Inspiration" and this is the true Sword, the TRUE Word of God.
Jesus told His disciples that He was going to a place, to be with His Father… He was going to prepare a place for us. Thomas had no clue; he had been with Christ for several years and still did not know "the Way". Disappointed with him, Jesus reminded him again, "I am the Way, the Truth and the Life…" (John 14:6). From the beginning of Original Sin, God has provided a Way Home to Him…even beyond "The Promised Land". The promise of the NEW Promised Land can ONLY be received, through Christ Jesus the Mediator between us and the Father.
John 14:6 is the "secret pass code" to know the Way Home. Won't YOU go out and tell someone this GREAT secret? Tell someone today, tomorrow and everyday thereafter! Peace be with you.
Keep us in your prayers, we will keep you in ours and always remember… "Keep on KEEPIN ON!"
Peace 2 U!
