Jesus said, “Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained.” In the Name of God. Amen.
“Lord, is this the time when you will restore the kingdom to Israel?” In the Name of the one, holy, and undivided Trinity. Amen.
So, this time of pandemic is an opportunity to walk the Purgative Way and lay aside what is unnecessary or unhelpful to us.
Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life. We have no better friend or guide.
We learn that voice through reading the Gospels and through talking to Jesus ourselves. And don’t be surprised if in following that voice we find ourselves sharing our resources with our neighbors breaking bread with glad and generous hearts, and praising God.
