Today’s Gospel: John 15:12-17 (The Vine and The Branches)
A dear, special lady in my life, offered me a reflection about my writings yesterday and I must say; I greatly appreciate her love and her passion about hearing my passion for my Lord. Thank you, Becky. I truly love you with all my heart. Our Lord crossed our paths many years ago for this very reason; your spirit is very special and very in-tune with our Lord and our Lady. You see in me what I can’t. You Becky, are living today’s gospel to the fullest! That is why I needed to share all of this. Becky made a great point and asked me a couple of very significant questions because of her love for me. Why do you do all this? Why do you write? What is the blogs purpose? Who do you want to reach? Inevitably what do you want out of all this?
Pondering these thoughts today: I hope and pray that today’s blog was beyond that of your expectations. I am thrilled that Becky opened her heart to me and shared with me what she seen was different about my writings. Becky is truly making me a much better Spiritual Leader and I am truly grateful and deeply blessed to have her in my life. Her example and her life spiritual life that I witness is truly amazing. She and I experience Jesus and Our Lady a lot together and we always will. Thank you, Jesus, for Becky.
Your brother in Christ Jesus
And His Most Blessed Mother,

Rosary Man Jim’s Sorrowful Reflection: http://beads-of-joy-blog.blogspot.com/2014/02/the-sorrowful-mysteries_11.html
I share this meditation I wrote back in 2010. Here I share my own personal insight and experience, as I journey with our Lady from station to station.
Many Franciscan groups around the world use this for their own group gathering while they meditate the Stations with our Lady. http://beads-of-joy-blog.blogspot.com/2010/03/marys-way-of-cross.html It is unique and emotionally very moving as you move from station to station… From my heart to yours.
