Living in the Care of Our Heavenly Father

Father Henry and Father Bibin came to mind when I read today’s gospel. They are from India and are assigned to our parish, Blessed Sacrament Church. Already they gave up their will, their ownership of material wealth, and the right to marry and have children. Think of immigrants who give up their culture and livelihood to seek a better life.

Parents renounce a lot of time, sleep, and budget when an unexpected child is conceived, and they know they will have to make many sacrifices to welcome the child into this world. They never consider abortion.

In today’s gospel, Jesus promised to care for us when we give up everything and follow Him. Living in the care of our Heavenly Father “implies absolute confidence in God the Father and in him alone, together with complete independence of everything on earth that appears to offer gratification, power, or fame.” (The Fourth Maxim of Christian Perfection Blessed Antonio Rosmini).

Gospel Challenge:

The heart of our Heavenly Father cannot help but respond generously to us when we abandon ourselves to His providential care. There is a temptation to fix everything and sometimes everybody. I am amazed, however, when I let God take the first move and hold back any attempt I could make to remedy a situation.

Is Jesus offering you the opportunity (grace) to trust Him enough to give up everything? Pray, “Give us this day our daily bread.” He will come, though, without fail. “It is better to wait in silence for the salvation of God” (Lamentations 3:26).
