Sunday Sermon and Some Other Stuff

13 Jun

“Science tells me God must exist. My mind tells me that I will ever understand God. And my heart tells me I am not meant to.”~ Dan Brown

Well folks, it’s officially really hot here in North Texas. Thank God for air conditioning. Literally, it was nice and cool inside St. Gabriel this morning. I think we were all thankful. I remember growing up in the 50’s and 60’s when the churches and schools did not have air conditioning.

Today is Trinity Sunday. This made me smile because my sweet angel Mother was named Trinidad because she was born and baptized around Trinity Sunday back in the 20’s. (Look at that smile)

Today’s Gospel Jesus explains to His disciples that they will not fully understand everything now, but they will be guided.

Jn 16:12-15

Jesus said to his disciples:
“I have much more to tell you, but you cannot bear it now.
But when he comes, the Spirit of truth,
he will guide you to all truth.
He will not speak on his own,
but he will speak what he hears,
and will declare to you the things that are coming.
He will glorify me,
because he will take from what is mine and declare it to you.
Everything that the Father has is mine;
for this reason I told you that he will take from what is mine
and declare it to you.”

My take on it… this is a perfect analogy for our faith and our life. We may not understand everything presented to us, but if we are patient, we will be guided.

After Mass, there was a meeting for the Welcome Ministry, which has been slow to get back to full speed since Covid. I miss greeting at the door before Mass. Hopefully we will get back into full swing again soon.

Then, we had a nice brunch at Jerry’s house. Patricia made a yummy breakfast, and we visited with friends and family.

Then, I scooted over to the Square to meet my old friend Liz who was in town just for a couple of days. We were I. A writing group together probably ten years ago. We had a nice visit and walked around the square. We had to pop into a shop every few minutes because it was so dang hot out there.

One of my favorite shops, Fair and Square Imports. They have the coolest stuff.
Great gift ideas.
Goodies Texas Candy shop.
It was a nice afternoon, even though it was a bit warm. 113° in my car.

Yes, thank God for air conditioner.🙏 Happy Sunday, my friends.
