Beloved, see what love the Father has bestowed on us that we may be called the children of God. Yet so we are. The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. Beloved, we are God’s children now; what we shall be has not yet been revealed. We do know that when it is revealed we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is. Everyone who has this hope based on him makes himself pure, as he is pure. I John 3:1-3

 

We were in Los Angeles over Easter because our brother-in-law was received into the Church. It was so wonderful, so happy, so holy! We went to lunch one day with the family and I asked my niece’s son if he know who he was. I told him he was “God’s child.” It’s true!

I told Marcia’s sister and other Brother-in-law that I always ask the grandchildren who they are and they answer “God’s child” and I tell them to never forget it. I told them that through their Baptism they were God’s children too. It’s true!

At Easter Dinner I thanked my brother-in-law for allowing Marcia and I to be his Godparents. I told him to remember who he is through Baptism he is “God’s Child” and will be forever. It’s true!

We had dinner the other night with some old friends we hadn’t seen for years and in our conversation I told them the story of our grandchildren and about reminding them every chance I get that they are “God’s children.” They liked it and I let them know that they are too. It’s true!

At the “Growing Our Faith” meeting, a church group, I asked one of the members if she was a saint and she said yes because I had told her once, and praise the Holy Spirit who nudged me and caused her to believe it. I then asked everyone at the meeting if they were saints and they said yes. It is through there baptism that they are saints and “God’s children.” It’s true!

At Saturday night Mass Father reminded us that everyone is “Gods Children.’ It’s true!

Not only is it true it is our responsibility to remind each other often of this great gift of being God’s sons and daughters which makes us brothers and sisters. We have a responsibility to “Love one another” and help each other get to heaven.

Jesus commands us to be “Perfect as our heavenly father is Perfect.” Only Satan tells us we can’t … HE IS WRONG … HE IS A LIER!!

I’m telling all of you, especially my children, that they are “God’s children and never forget it.” Tell yours today because it’s true.

Be a saint today … tomorrow may be too late.

Jesus, make my family and friends holy.

Jesus let the babies cry.
