Reflective Moments July 2019

Do you like crossword puzzles? I love them. I usually work the one from our local newspaper every night. I also play Scrabble each evening. I find words fascinating.
Sometimes when I am at prayer with my community a word will jump out at me and I want to remember it when I am playing Scrabble or working a puzzle.
I go back to a prior sentence I wrote: I find words fascinating. That leads me to ponder something from Saint John’s Gospel: “The Word was made flesh and dwells among us.” – Jesus, the Word of God. Do I find Jesus fascinating? How often does The Word pop into my head – my heart? Do I carry The Word with me throughout the day? How do I encounter The Word in people, places and things? Jesus is not confined to times of formal prayer. Do I let The Word be my guide, my lifegiving source? I surely hope so.


Do you find Jesus fascinating? How?
You may wish to spend some time journaling about words and The Word

    Yes I fine Jesus fascinating. He has answer prayers for me that I thought were not possible. He is the way truth and the truth.
    I wish Sister Marietta was able to come back to Holy Spirit. She if really missed love by many.

    Thank you for your inspiring words. I play scrabble also but never connected the words with THE WORD MADE FLESH Who dwelt among us —my life giving source.
