Treasures in Heaven
We are wise!
We make plans for the future
We save for the rainy days
We store and save and often ready for any eventuality.
We get Insurances and some even have Funeral plans already.
(My Mom had prepared already a space in the cemetery for her and for my dad so that they can be together.)
But I still wonder, Is there an assurance that we can enter Heaven in the end?
It reminds us therefore to be ready and to make preparations for our souls.
And Jesus' words are really meaningful when He said: "Store up for yourselves treasures in heaven where neither moth or decay can destroy nor thieves can break in and steal."
Today, I was called to visit Ralph Esposito, a Brother Knight, for communion and anointing. He is sick, in pain and suffering.
Before I left he requested, Father, can you give me the final rite already? I know I am going. I have asked for forgiveness already and have forgiven those who caused me pain and I wish to be prepared to meet the Lord.
I gave him the last rite, And I believe that he was truly prepared and ready.
May we also make preparations for the end
For we know not when the Lord will call us.
This is a site of "Leaps of Faith" experiences and reflections. Be it Philosophical, Theological, Practical or Personal. It is also a site of Biblical reflections. But Above all, This is a site for YOU and ME.
"Leaps of Faith"
"LEAPS OF FAITH" Can be a religious movement of a person, an inner movement of belief, of trust on the greatest power of all, The Supreme being..Our Creator and Maker..Our God. They can be resolutions of a person everyday in his life to move forward, to be a better person, and to start a new life. They can be decisions of a person in times of great uncertainties, when he is not sure of what will come or happen and he makes a leap of faith. They can be steps, difficult steps that a person makes on his way to change or to start anew. Or they can simply be a persons resolve to fly, to travel..to widen his horizons, to learn more about life and to grow. These are Leaps of faith we make everyday and in great moments of our lives and they are worth considering and reflecting.
