I will tell you a secret…

You and I and all who are called to live the life of Love have a special name known only to God. “I know My sheep and mine know me, and I call each by name…” When it is time for us to pass from this life, this pilgrimage in vale of tears, God whispers this name to the soul and the soul, unable to withstand the call, leaves the body to meet the Ineffable and Eternal Creator, there in His presence to give an account. May it be the great and magnificent homecoming it is meant to be, and not a terror of judgement. “Fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom…” Now, in this moment, while we can we make our plea to God in the Holy Name of Jesus, not just for ourselves, but for each person that we know and do not know. For each soul that we love and do not love. Those for whom we have prayed and those who have no one to pray for them. We fly to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, where all manner of sin and imperfection is forgiven and forgotten. Where the merits of Him Who alone loves us eternally imputes these merits to us by grace and inexpressible kindness.

United to His sacrifice, even the most minute actions become salvific and meritorious. The very breaths we take, the blinking of an eye, the thoughts we think- everything is transformed for our benefit by the One Who made us. How marvelous and humbling is the Catholic faith! However imperfect we be, we are Catholics forever.

Blessed Be The Holy Name of Jesus
