Give alms, and behold, everything will be clean for you!

 

October 11, 2022

Dear Family of Mary!

Luke 11:37-41

After Jesus had spoken, a Pharisee invited him to dine at his home. He entered and reclined at table to eat. The Pharisee was amazed to see that he did not observe the prescribed washing before the meal. The Lord said to him, “Oh, you Pharisees! Although you cleanse the outside of the cup and the dish, inside you are filled with plunder and evil. You fools! Did not the maker of the outside also make the inside? But as to what is within, give alms, and behold, everything will be clean for you.”

“But as to what is within, give alms, and behold, everything will be clean for you.”

Jesus was really abashed at this Pharisee, and how thick headed he was.  He just didn’t get Jesus.   He was so picky and stubborn and self-centered!!  But He gave him a very simple remedy.  “Give alms, and behold everything will be clean for you!”

Giving alms is a remedy for so much that is disordered within us.  Why?  I think it is because the act of serving and sharing with others who are poor can penetrate our hearts as nothing else can.

Last week I was blessed to go to the movie, “No Greater Love” which is a tribute to Mother Teresa of Calcutta – ( https://www.motherteresamovie.com/ ) – It was so moving, I could hardly take it all in.  I highly recommend it!!  Mother Teresa made her entire life a gift of alms for the poor.  She gave everything.  And for her everything was clean!!!  Her soul was a bright and shiny as the sun!!

Our Lady knows about having souls that shine.  In this very long message she gives us very good advice about how to become good.  Of course the poor are included in her list.  In fact so many of the things Our Lady calls us to do are exemplified in Mother Teresa.  She prayed the Rosary. none-stop!  She And she offered her entire life to Jesus, through Mary, by serving the poor.  May Our Lady teach us our road to holiness so that one day we will shine like the sun!!

“Dear children,

I turn to you as your mother,
the mother of the just,
the mother of those who love and suffer,
the mother of those who are holy.

My children,
you too can be holy –
this depends on you.

Those who are holy are
those who immeasurably love the Heavenly Father,
those who love Him above all.

Therefore, my children,
always strive to be better.

If you strive to be good
you can be holy
even though you may not think so of yourselves.

If you think that you are good,
you are not humble,
and arrogance distances you from holiness.

In this peaceless world full of threats,
your hands, apostles of my love,
should be extended in prayer and mercy.

And to me, my children,
give the gift of the rosary,
the roses which I love so much.

My roses are your prayers pronounced with the heart
and not only recited with the lips.

My roses are your acts of prayer, faith and love.

When my Son was little,
he said to me that my children would be numerous
and that they would bring me many roses.

I did not comprehend Him.

Now I know that you are those children
who are bringing me roses
when, above all, you love my Son,
when you pray with the heart,
when you help the poorest.

Those are my roses.

That is the faith which makes everything in life
be done through love,
not knowing arrogance,
and always ready to forgive;
never judging,
always striving to understand one’s brother.

Therefore, apostles of my love,
pray for those who do not know how to love,
for those who do not love you,
for those who have done evil to you,
for those who have not come to know the love of my Son.

My children,
I ask this of you because,
remember,
to pray means to love and to forgive.

Thank you.”

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
