Sunday Sermon and Other Stuff

“If I take care of my character, my reputation will take care of itself.”
― D.L. Moody

*************

It was a good lazy day. The sun was out, but it never really warmed up. But that’s ok, I didn’t venture outside at all today. I gave myself permission to be lazy and unproductive. I listened to a few motivational videos to reinforce my mental growth and calm. Sometimes exercising the brain is as important as the body.

I watched morning Mass on TV in my pajamas. Seriously, I’m worried that when I do get back to going to church in person, I’m going to show up in my pajamas.

Today’s Gospel was the story of Jesus confronting the man with an unclean spirit, (implying the devil) and He rebuked the spirit and cast him out.

26 “And the unclean spirit threw the man into convulsions and with a loud cry went out of him.

27 The people were so astonished that they started asking one another what it all meant, saying, ‘Here is a teaching that is new, and with authority behind it: he gives orders even to unclean spirits and they obey him.’

28 And his reputation at once spread everywhere, through all the surrounding Galilean countryside.“

My take on it…. Just like with Jesus, your deeds and actions profess your reputation. Your reputation is your legacy to your family, your friends, to the world, long after you are gone. LIVE WISELY, LIVE GENTLY.

The first Reading was read by ALAN ARMENTA, (photo 6) who was also the recipient of a Catholic Diocese Scholarship. My first reaction was, hmmm, I wonder if we are related? You never know, and I’ll probably never know. (But, maybe I’ll check it out.

The rest of my day was gloriously lazy, no walk, no sunset, but several phone calls with friends and family. Spending time with people you love, ❤️whether FaceTime or in person, is always wonderful.

Then of course, a little FaceTime with the most adorable little girls ever.

Happy Sunday, my friends.
