I haven’t written a Mass reflection for a very long time. Last week, I was motivated to, but I forgot what Father said to inspire me. This week I put a small notebook in my purse. I jotted a bunch of notes. As I look over the page of scribbling, Father said a lot of good things. I am drawn to only one. “Invite Jesus in all you do.”
The reading of the Gospel was the story of Jesus turning water into wine. Father told a story about Johnny Carson interviewing a young boy. Johnny asked the boy what he learned from this reading. After a few moments of thought the boy said, “Always invite Jesus to a wedding.” Amen! Father extended that to “invite Jesus in all you do.” Amen!
My daughter turned to me and whispered, “We should invite Jesus to our Super Bowl party.” And again I say Amen!
Blessings to you all.
