Marriage Minute


Your family is a system. This means that when one person changes a behavior – for good or for ill – it impacts everyone. If you smile, do a favor, give a         compliment, it lifts everyone’s spirit. If you complain or nag, it pulls your beloved down too.

I am thankful…

• for sidewalks that need shoveling, a lawn that needs mowing, and windows that need cleaning, because it means I have a home.

• for the mess to clean up after a party, because it means I have been surrounded by friends.

• for the taxes I pay, because it means I am employed.

• for all the complaining I do about the government, because it means we have freedom of speech.

• for the teenager who is complaining about doing chores, because they are at home, not on the streets.

• for the clothes that fit a little too snug, because it means I have enough to eat.

Count your Blessings

     At times its seems difficult to be thankful. But once you stop to think about what you have and who you are, being grateful seems the most natural thing in the world. Most of us simply don't take time to count our blessings. If we did, our hearts would daily sing in gratitude. And, how much more grateful must we feel for our spiritual riches. We are by adoption children of God. We are sons and daughters of the Maker of the Universe! How can we for even one fleeting moment grouse ungratefully? We can not. We must be grateful always and everywhere.

"The family idea is dear to God and to the Church ... I declare that I recognize the value of a family spirit, of a family working in the Church, of a family that with ardor will take these words from our dear Lord’s lips: ‘Going, therefore, teach ye all nations: baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.'"

 

- Fr. Thomas Augustine Judge,  Founder of St. Patrick School and 3rd Pastor of St. Patrick Church


 

 

God so loved the world that he gave his only Son,
so that everyone who believes in him might not perish
but might have eternal life.
For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world,
but that the world might be saved through him.
Whoever believes in him will not be condemned,
but whoever does not believe has already been condemned,
because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God. 

                                

                                                                         JN 3:16-18
