Holy, Holy, Holy

Two prophets--one from the Old Testament, and one from the New;
both chosen while alive to see that which most of us will only see after death

Both the great prophet, Isaiah, and the Apostle John, capture the reality in the same words.

Isaiah 6:3

3And one called to another and said: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; the whole earth is full of his glory.”

Revelation 4:8

8And the four living creatures, each of them with six wings, are full of eyes all around and inside. Day and night without ceasing they sing, “Holy, holy, holy, the Lord God the Almighty, who was and is and is to come.”

Jesus had this to say about Isaiah's testimony:

John 12:41

41Isaiah said this because he saw his glory and spoke about him.

Good to keep in mind as we contemplate for the 99.999999% of us still living who do not get whisked into the the holiness of the reality of God's holiness and glory, charged to give an account to foster the faith, love, trust, and hope of the rest of us!

Let us pray the prayer taught by the angel to the children at Fatima:
MY GOD, I believe, I adore, I trust, and I love Thee! 
I ask pardon for for those who do not believe, 
do not adore, do not trust and do not love Thee.

Let us take encouragement from these words of our beloved Lord, Jesus the Son of God:

John 20:29

29Jesus said to him, ‘Have you believed because you have seen me? Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have come to believe.’

Thank You, Mom

"Thank you, Mom, for giving birth to me.

Thank you, Mom, for feeding me every night.

Thank you, Mom, for telling me about Jesus."

This is what my son told me after eating his fill of Ukrainian pierogies, and two slices of honey bun cake.  I've noticed the males in this family are happiest and most loving after eating well.

Still, had to post this because these three thank you's need the platform of the world wide web.

A good Sunday to you all!

God Bless You!
