Lori sent me these in response to a post I wrote on Daily Mass awhile back. It was God's perfect timing that they arrived this week during a rough patch... Lets just say that my husband and I knew it was going to be a sacrificial summer (I will spare the gory details) but it's another thing to live it! I have seen these booklets around but can't say I have ever (that I remember) picked one up to read it all the way through. Today I read The Wonders Of The Holy Name and if I were to describe it in one word: Gem. The simple wisdom offered was just what I needed today. It didn't take much, just the simple invocation of the sweet name of Jesus. After all, I am not a learned theologian, nor an expert in the faith. I have so much to learn, even the simple and most obvious things. I am nothing but overjoyed when I find a new simple secret that involves Jesus, Jesus, Jesus. It fills the deepest desires of my heart to ingest simple nuggets, simple food for the soul...Jesus. Did I use the word simple enough to tell you how much I love simple? Especially when it comes to simply Jesus. I am certainly not implying that Jesus is simple but invoking the name of Jesus has simply taken on new meaning(s), more than I can count. Life is simply Jesus and Jesus is simply Life. Needless to say, I plan on buying more to Pay It Forward. Many thanks, dear Lori!
