"Offer to God a sacrifice of thanksgiving,
and pay your vows to the Most High;
and call upon me in the day of trouble;
I will deliver you, and you shall honor me." (Psalm 50)
The desire to communincate with those we love is a constant need of the human person. We reach out with whatever means at our disposal so that the human voice is able to speak the sentiments of the heart. Deployments bring separation within the family and troubling anxieties. Communication by means of the spoken word becomes even more important for strengthening human bonds when physical presence is not possible.
Calling upon God in prayer that comes from the heart is always necessary, every day, so that the mind and heart become a sanctuary for the Divine Presence. Through the sending of the Spirit upon the Church and the ministry of the priest the holy of holies now comes down to earth;we enter into the Sanctuary of the Most High each time we participate in holy Mass. God calls upon us and in love delivers us!
This post is dedicated to the generosity of the Murray family and CPO Martin V. Kersey, USN (Retired) who gave the gift of phone cards to support our deployed family members. Thank you.
