Assumption-Florian Parish Bulletin, May 18, 2024

“There are different kinds of spiritual gifts but the same Spirit; there are different forms of service but the same Lord; there are different workings but the same God who produces all of them in everyone.” - 1 Corinthians 12:4-6 All of us are blessed, regardless of our own individual circumstances. God has given each of us many gifts. How we use those gifts is our gift back to God. For God’s plan to work, each must do what we are called to do. Guess what? We are not all called to do the same thing! For God’s plan to work you must do what God is calling you to do and I must do what God is calling me to do.

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

May 17 – Jesus loved us to the end, to the very limit, dying on the cross. We must have this same love which comes from within, from our union with Jesus. This love should be as normal to us as living and breathing.

May 18 – Love is not about patronizing and charity isn't about pity, it is about pouring ourselves out for others. Charity and love are the same-with charity you give love, so don't just give money but reach out your hand also.

May 19 – We should ask ourselves, Have I really experienced the joy of loving? True love is love that causes pain, that hurts, and yet brings joy. This is why we pray asking for the courage to love, and love more deeply than ever before.

May 20 – To do God's work you need a few things. We need health of mind and body. We need the ability to learn. We need plenty of common sense and a cheerful disposition. I think common sense and cheerfulness are very necessary if we are to bring God's love to as many people as possible.

May 21 – We are called to cultivate that sacred silence which makes people remember the words of Jesus: See how they love one another. How often we find ourselves speaking about the faults of another. How often our conversation is about someone who is not present. Yet see the compassion of Christ toward Judas, the man who received so much love yet betrayed his own master. But the master kept the sacred silence and did not betray Judas. Jesus could have easily spoken in public-as we often do-telling the hidden intentions and deeds of Judas to others. But He didn't. Instead, He showed mercy and charity. Rather than condemning Judas, He called him His friend.

May 22 – In many places, children are neglected, but animals are cared for and pampered. Animals are given special food and other special things. I love dogs myself, very much, but still I cannot bear seeing a dog given the place of a child.

May 23 – To parents: it is very important that children learn from their fathers and mothers how to love one another. Not in school, not from the teacher, but from you. It is very important that you share with your children the joy of loving others. There will be misunderstandings. Every family has its cross, its suffering, but always be the first to forgive with a smile. Be cheerful, be happy.
