...the wicked shall die for his guilt, but I will hold you responsible for his death.

Ezekiel 33: 7-9

On September 6 at mass, the lector for this reading did not attend. I sit up front and support the choir within the socially distanced mass. As I saw that there was no lector, I proudly became the substitute. This reading has special meaning and I believe God picked me to read it on this day. Just as God appointed Ezekiel as a watchman for the house of Israel, so he has appointed parents to watch over their own house and family. My role and God’s mandate is to encourage my children and friends to avoid sin and live in a way that pleases the Lord. After I completed the reading, I audibly said, “Thank you Jesus.”  

God has entrusted parents with the physical and “eternal” welfare of their children. This can be a daunting task especially as our children mature and strike out on their own. But there is no limit to the power of prayer! Interceding in prayer for your family is not a waste of time.  How powerful are prayers? Just ask Jesus. On the night before he died, he prayed to God, the Father, for the strength to endure the cross. Jesus, I need, trust, and Love you! 

Thank you Jesus!
