Jeremiah 1:7 (God calls us through others)

23 Jul Jeremiah 1:7 (God calls us through others)

* Welcome God every morning before work by taking ~5 min to read this Living In Faith Exchange (LIFE) Group devotion (, which has snippets from Living Faith ( All whatsoever you do in word or in work, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Col. 3:17

To whomever I send you, you shall go; whatever I command you, you shall speak. Jeremiah 1:7

Living Faith snippets: “When I am invited to work in a soup kitchen for the day, is that what God really wants of me? When someone asks that I volunteer in a homeless shelter for a couple hours, is that where God wants me? When I feel the call to work in a hospice center, is it really God asking me to go there? When others ask something of me today, may I respond to God’s simple invitation.” by Sr. Charleen Hug

Pat nuggets:
* Last night, a group of us went to the Sacrament of Reconciliation at the Citadel Mall Chapel. On the way to the mall, I saw a homeless man and decided to pray for him. I also made a note to buy McDonald’s gift certificates to have in my car to give homeless people (instead of cash). I did not speak about the homeless man during my confession, yet the first words from the priest for my penance were something like, “give the homeless food and clothing.” Needless to say, I heard God loud and clear! I told the priest this story afterwards, and he just smiled. Coincidence…I think not!

* Gerard Klazura shared: “More volunteers urgently needed for the Pikes Peak Citizens for Life booth at the El Paso County Fair through Saturday, July 26. Please call Ann Sullivan at 593-7391.”
* Joe Hourigan shared this good news story from South Dakota:
* Gina Prevett shared: “…doing little things for people helps ease the burden on our minds.”

Faith quote: “Contemplating Jesus on the Cross we see love in its most radical form. We can begin to imagine the path of love along which we must move.” Pope Benedict (Apr visit to USA)

Through Christ Our Lord,
Phil 4:13

* Today’s Bible readings at Reflection on readings at
* Prayer: Prayer connects us with God’s will & His miracles, thereby changing us & helping others. Wayne Watson lyrics, “When God’s people pray, there is hope reborn, there is sin forgiven, and miracles you can’t explain await!” “If you pray that God will move a mountain and He doesn’t, assume Christ wants you to climb it instead & see Him.”
* Defend the unborn: ‘Rescue those who are unjustly sentenced to death; don’t stand back and let them die’ (Prov 24:11). ‘Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you’ (Jer 1:5). ‘It is a great poverty that a child must die that you might live as you wish’ Blessed Mother Teresa. Prayer to End Abortion. Ask Blessed Margaret of Castello for her prayers to end abortion.
* Evangelization: Let’s make room for non-believers (be a friend, make a friend, lead friend to Christ) and perpetual re-evangelization of self and those near us, by way of daily prayer (relationship) and following Christ’s example of selfless love, mercy, and service.
Let’s joyfully live out the Good News and gladly tell others about it (Mark 16:15)!
