The healing Mass is such a powerful display of God's love and awesome power. I thought I knew God and myself until I found that I truly knew neither. I searched for my soul with limited success because I searched selfishly using my will, I bent life to my will, I existed for my own will. It was not until I attended this mass that the true peace of God's love came upon me and showed me the error of my way. I was healed of body and spirit and discovered that God had never forsaken me...no, he had been with me all along. Waiting for me to open my eyes. This is a glorious and powerful night, I urge anyone who is curious to attend.
My two children recently attended vacation Bible school here at Immaculate where they learned more about how to think like Jesus, talk like Jesus, and act like Jesus. Then, the South Carolina murders of 9 people during bible study happened. My children asked me why God would let such a terrible thing happen, in a church. Their question gave me a reason to think like Jesus about why bad things happen, and I was able to talk like Jesus, about free will. I told my children that God never left Jesus when he died, and that God is still with Jesus now. God was with the 9 people who were murdered, and even in death he never leaves us. Free will means bad things are going to happen and it is up to us all to choose to act like Jesus so we too can go to heaven when we die. At the end of our talk we prayed, that the 9 people are at peace and that God have mercy on the murder's soul. In this small way, I too learned more about how to think like Jesus, talk like Jesus, and act like Jesus.
