How can we best show our gratitude for making us members of the only true Church of Jesus Christ?

1. Every day we should thank God for bringing us into the Church.

2. To edify others means to give them a good example. This does not mean to merely put on a show for others to see. It means acting the way we know Christ would like us to, whether others are watching us or not. Others often see us when we are not aware of it.

3. A word of encouragement or invitation is often the beginning of a conversation.

4. We should all be mission-conscious and desire to spread the faith all over the world.

How can we help the mission?

1. By praying for the missions, at home and foreign; and for missionaries , that they may fulfil the command of Christ: “Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations.”

2. By knowing the missions and making them known to others;

3. By making sacrifices for the mission, that is, by helping to support them by personal service;

4. By fostering vocations of self-sacrificing young men and women for every need of the missions.

Spiritual Childhood

Last Sunday afternoon as the whole congregation was seated waiting for the 3:30 p.m. Mass to start, a little child on his mother’s lap caught my attention. He looked so peaceful, sweet and serene. One can tell he loves to be with his parents. So long as his parents are close by, he has no fears. A life free from worry and care, and in a sense free from desire. What does a child do that God commend so highly? He loves to be with his parents. When they are about to leave him, he asks, “Take me with you?” So also we should love to be with God, to speak to Him, to think of Him, wherever we may be, whatever we may be doing. He never willingly leaves us, it is us who neglect Him, ignore Him, and drive Him away from us by mortal sin. A little child trusts his parents with unbounded confidence in their love and their power. When he wants a piece of bread, a glass of milk, he asks confident of getting it. So too, should we ask God with the utmost trust for our needs.
