“Abundant –Overflowing Love”
©2013 James Dacey, Jr. OFS
Lord as I begin this most blessed First Glorious Mystery celebrating Your Resurrection; know that my Faith and my Love and my Life are completely all for You Lord. I know Your love for me is without measure or requirement of me. Just as the four thousand who were with You in today’s gospel; Your heart had compassion to meet their needs. They did not ask for Your help, yet You willingly had compassion for their needs. Lord, may my heart always be so compassionate to others, as I see their needs arise.
The second Glorious Mystery is one of Hope, knowing that You Lord went before us to the Father. In today’s gospel Lord, You show me, that You not only healed many who followed You; but in Your compassion for their needs, You fulfilled their needs. I am greatly encouraged by today’s gospel Lord. I never lose Hope even when events and activities in the world seem negative and even completely opposite and against me. I rest all my Hope in You Lord, knowing that You always love me.
As the Holy Spirit came down from Heaven and rested upon the disciples and those present and many billions throughout the centuries including me. In Your Wisdom Lord, I can see how today’s gospel -brought down bread from Heaven to feed the four thousand. I rejoice and feel so very blessed every single day Lord that I get to be with You; knowing that You have a compassionate loving heart. The Holy Spirit accompanies me and leads me always to You; just as Mary always leads me to You.
Lord, I feel so blessed and loved, knowing that Your Mother is there for me, as she has always been there for You. In this fourth Mystery Lord, Your Mother, my Mother has gone before us in her commitment to You. Devotion to Mary is a huge part of my Devotion to You Lord. In Mary and Through Mary I always find You. In today’s gospel the crowd followed You, knowing You would heal them, and take care of them. You didn't send them away, instead You embraced them in their needs.
As I begin the fifth Glorious Mystery Lord I place all my choices, all my faith and my love in the Eternal Happiness You give to me. Our Lady is well deserving of this crown. Today’s gospel in many ways shows us, it most certainly showed the crowd that happiness, fulfillment of our bodily needs also bring us eternal happiness from Heaven. You Lord always know what’s best for us and then in Your time You meet our needs.
