This morning I started the reflections for a new Oremus study. Maggie, Barbara, Darla and I are watching the videos and following Fr. Toups reflections.
I couldn’t help but think at the very end of the passage that the “place from which we were exiled” is not Israel but heaven itself. God is bringing us back for that “future full of hope”. I wish that for my sister Jill whose time is very limited. Her life has been so difficult, so full of pain and illness.
God promises to listen to us when we go to pray to Him. If You are listening, Lord, bless my sister. Give her that future that You have promised. I ask this in the Name of Jesus, the Lord.
