May the blessings of God be upon us. September 8 is the Feast of the Nativity of Mary. Marking the day 9 months after the Immaculate Conception when Mary was born of Ann and Joachim,
This week our strength building on the virtue of Faith is OBEDIENCE. Obedience-2023-Mini-PDF
The strength to comply with and respect the authority of those in positions of leadership who have the right to command.OBEDIENCE is necessary for success in this life and most importantly for Eternal Life. We need to have OBEDIENCE in the living of our Catholic Faith.
The Catechism of the Catholic Church addresses the virtue of obedience, even calling it, as we did above, a duty. “The duty of obedience requires
all to give due honor to authority and to treat those who are charged to exercise it with respect, and, insofar as it is deserved, with gratitude and good-will.” (CCC # 1900)
Luke 2: 51
And He went down with them, and came to Nazareth, and was subject to them and his mother kept all these words in her heart.
The opposing vice or weakness is disobedience. “NOT LISTENING OR COMPLYING.”
In Christ’s Peace, through Mary our Mother
