Do these 50 seconds and 74 words matter in the lives of the audience?

This quote came directly from a Facebook reply i made yesterday.

 

Do the 50 seconds and 74 words i’ll be reading in an hour matter in the lives of the audience?

They’ll see it and feel it, if i feel it.

i’m a Lector (reader of Holy Scripture) this morning at 8:45am Mass.

A self-asked question every time it’s administered?

What are the odds this Holy Water tradition is simply a mindless routine with a watered down result?

Are we God?

This photo brings things into focus, no?

 

Are we God?

Theoretically (depending on your convictions), the answer is yes.

Do we see God in others?

Father, Son, and Holy Spirit proposes that the Holy Spirit is mightily alive in every human being.

Yet so few of us carry ourselves with a profound understanding of how this transforms us from being afraid to being unafraid.

Do Things Happen in Threes?

Threes are important, aren’t they?

How about Faith, Hope and Love?

The biggest three in my world anyway.

However, this morning, in the span of 30 minutes, it happened like this:

  1. Father V spoke about Love
  2. Art spoke about do-overs
  3. Dennis & Stacey spoke about making a difference

Please let me explain;

Number one. Our Priest spoke of Love being the ultimate choice in life. Not that we get to love, as much as we are loved. And our choice is in what we do with this knowlege. The goal, Father V said, is that we love others, as our Father loves us.

Number two. Art told me his oldest son graduated High School two days ago. I asked, “He grew up fast, didn’t he”? Art replied, “Too fast”. If given the chance to do it over, Art said something about doing it differently, carving out even more time than he did, knowing what he knows now.

Number three. Stacey and Dennis are sponsoring a fund-raiser, in honor of their beloved daughter, Whitney Lee DeCarlo, on Saturday, May 23, at our Church. I asked Stacey and Dennis if it would be OK to post a short You Tube video clip. Click here to see the short video clip. A few minutes earlier, we had just finished talking about trying to make a difference in our World, and using social media to do it.

You may click here – Whitney Lee DeCarlo – to read Stacey’s Caring Bridge Journal, for the full story.

This post is in honor of all those people trying to help others. This post is also inspired by the power of people working together for a common good.

While many reading have no way to attend Stacey and Dennis’ dinner gala for a great cause, maybe there is something else you can do in your corner of the world. Or, if you would like to make a tax deductible donation, please email Stacey at staceydecarlo@mac.com

It is better to give than to receive, eh? Carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂
