Prepared for You
Rejoice and be glad, for your reward will be great in heaven.
The scene in the promotional video for a local Catholic school featured religious sisters welcoming children into a warm, friendly, brightly decorated classroom.
The principal narrating the film--also a religious sister--described her order's understanding of that moment and that place. She said they were seeking to share a greater truth with the children, to image the warmth and welcome God shares with us in his kingdom by the way they welcomed and treated children in the classroom every day. "We're saying here--you have a place prepared for you," she said, "as the Lord has a place prepared for you in heaven."
May we be like the saints and say yes to all that God has prepared for us!
Lord, may I share your love in the way of all the saints.
