Assumption-Florian Parish Bulletin August 14, 2022

Do you think I have come to give you peace on Earth?  No, I tell you, but rather division.”
Luke 12:51
Many of us like to play it safe, not cause waves with our family and friends, especially when it comes to politics and religion.  We don’t want to cause any turmoil.  However, many times this is at the expense of the truth.  The truth being Jesus Christ.  Too many people are misguided because they rely on their own limited human ability to reason and are not allowing faith in God to guide them. Form your conscience; take a stance for life, marriage and religious liberty.

I came to bring fire to the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled! I have a baptism with which to be baptized, and what stress I am under until it is completed! Do you think that I have come to bring peace to the earth? No, I tell you, but rather division!” (Luke12:49-51)

Do Something Beautiful for God – The Essential Teachings of Mother Teresa

August 12 – Sacrifice, surrender, and suffering are not popular topics today. Our culture makes us believe that we can have it all, that we should demand our rights, that with the right technology all pain and problems can be overcome. That is not my attitude toward sacrifice.

August 13 – God told us, “Love your neighbor as yourself.” So first I am to love myself rightly, and then to love my neighbor like that. But how can I love myself unless I accept myself as God has made me? Those who deny that beautiful differences between men and women are not accepting themselves as God has made them, and so cannot accept and love their neighbor. They will only bring division, unhappiness, and destruction of peace to the world.

August 14 – I am convinced that today's youth are more generous than those of times past. Our youth are better prepared and more willing to sacrifice to serve others.

August 15 – Don't come to prayer looking for extraordinary experiences. Come to visit your great friend Jesus, always present and waiting for you in the tabernacle. This is the friendship that strengthens us to fulfill our day-to-day ordinary duties with extraordinary love and devotion.

August 16 – If you are successful, you will win some false friends and true enemies: Succeed anyway.

August 17 – Stay where you are. Find your own Calcutta. Find the sick, the suffering, and the lonely right where you are-in your own homes and in your own families, in your workplaces and in your schools.

August 18 – It is much easier to conquer a country than to conquer ourselves. Every act of disobedience weakens my spiritual life. It is like a wound letting out every drop of one's blood. Nothing can cause havoc in our spiritual live as quickly as disobedience.
