My Television Is The Tabernacle
"My television is the tabernacle."
I just loved this quote from Mother Teresa. I can really relate, especially when
there are days when the only peace I find is the ability to
close my eyes and picture Jesus here with us on earth,
there on the altar,
waiting for us to come to Him like little children.
It's been a long week around here with a household of sick kids, including Mama.
It's hard to keep up with prayer life when there's sleepless nights
and bedsides to be tended to.
Regular chores pile up and household duties slip out of their regular routine.
Tomorrow is Monday and the week begins all over again.
I start to feel weary about the tasks ahead with husband gone for a week.
But then I remember to close my eyes and turn on the television for a little peace and quiet...
The tabernacle is my television.
I can picture the Prince of Peace
waiting to guide me through the week
His Mother is there too,
Hostess of the show,
leading us directly to His loving arms.
We are never alone,
when our television is the tabernacle.
"The greatest love story of all time is contained in a tiny white host."
~Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen~
