Here are some more that go

Here are some more that go along with Pastor Grant's verse . . . which I Love to meditate upon . . . CHRIST in us and us in HIM.

Douay/Rheims . . .

Colossians Chapter 1:

26 The mystery which hath been hidden from ages and generations, but now is manifested to his saints,

27 To whom God would make known the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles, which is Christ, in you the hope of glory.

. . . many other Catholic/Non-catholic translations put the comma . . . CHRIST in you, the Hope of Glory.

and . . .

1 Corinthians 3:

16 Know you not, that you are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?

1 Corinthians 6:

19 Or know you not, that your members are the temple of the Holy Ghost, who is in you, whom you have from God; and you are not your own?

. . .

Our body's are not really ours . . . but are HIS . . . especially after Baptism . . . we becoming Living Temples of HIS HOLY SPIRIT. That is why we will have to account for everything we do while we are in that body, this both physically and Spiritually speaking.

But . . . it is only of late . . . that I have really felt HIS Presence in a new way . . . perhaps opening my heart, finally to HIM.

I have always liked and adored JESUS . . . but of late . . . it seems to me more and more that I have fallen in Love with HIM . . . which sounds funny to me too . . . being that I am a man in every since of that.

I can't help but feel that HE takes such care of us . . . even when we don't even give HIM any of our mind or heart . . . even when we are still rejecting HIM . . . HE is there suffering in us and/or with us . . . to help us.

How can that not be accepted . . . as Love . . . of the highest order . . . totally 'unselfish' . . . totally 'giving' . . . totally 'Sacrificing' . . . for the Beloved . . . that Beloved being you and me and all of us . . . from HIS perspective.

Mary is the first to fully 'Accept' and fully 'Respond' to this Love and this Love became Incarnate in Her Immaculate Womb. In us, HE comes by the Grace of the HOLY SPIRIT to Dwell, together with the FATHER and the HOLY SPIRIT, in us, in our Hearts and Minds and Souls.

When the whole world has the Heart of Mary, JESUS will fully Reign, in our Hearts and Minds and Souls, universally. This will be what we Catholics call . . . "The Triumph of Her Immaculate Heart".

Much trouble has come and more trouble may come before this event finally occurs. But it will occur . . . even if CHRIST has to come again to make it occur . . . casting HIS Fire upon the whole earth . . . the Fire of HIS HOLY SPIRIT.

GOD Bless us all.
