Last Wednesday, on the way back, after taking away some lunch, I spotted a gentleman who had just been at the Mass. He looked just like everyone else in the crowd. But he was carrying our Lord in his heart. If only we Catholics lived our daily lives with the knowledge that God was dwelling within us and if we remembered this in our dealings with our neighbours, in the work that we do, the way that we speak and act, we'd be able to bring about change to our world: bring a glimpse of the Kingdom of God everywhere we go.
Here's an interesting article by Fr Thomas G. Weinandy on the Catholic Laity
"Hence the laity, dedicated as they are to Christ and anointed by the Holy Spirit, are marvelously called and prepared so that even richer fruits of the Spirit maybe produced in them. For all their works, prayers, and apostolic undertakings, family and married life, daily work, relaxation of mind and body, if they are accomplished in the Spirit - indeed even the hardships of life if patiently born - all these become spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. In the celebration of the Eucharist these may most fittingly be offered to the Father along with the body of the Lord. And so, worshipping everywhere by their holy actions, the laity consecrate the world itself to God, everywhere offering worship by the holiness of their lives."~ CCC 901God bless!
