Dom João Inácio Müller celebra Missa da Festa da Porciúncula – Perdão de Assis – no Santuário do Pai das Misericórdias

Today, I decide to admire that which is eternal and comes from God

These days, a question troubled my heart: “What have I admired today? Where am I fixing my gaze? “Many things are beautiful and attract us, but everything on this earth is fleeting, so I must fix my eyes on what is eternal.

The Lord speaks in the Word: “Do you admire these things? Days will come when there will not be one stone left on one stone “(Luke 21: 6).

Today, I decide to admire that which is eternal and which comes from God. I do not want to waste more time worrying about small things that are going to happen, my only concern must be the search for the Kingdom of God.

My brethren,Jesus is coming. All this will pass. Let us together fight for the Kingdom of God, let us invest our time and our forces in eternity. Let us put aside all that does not build the Kingdom in us.

Jesus will come and all this will pass. May this news fill your heart of hope

One person asked me, “Do you have something to tell me to be of hope?” I thought and I remembered the tragedy in Minas Gerais, the attacks in France, the economic crisis, the diseases, but none of that gives us hope, only sadness.

Then I answered, “The only and best news I have is that the second coming of Jesus Christ is at hand.This fact fills my heart with hope and joy, I feel a deep peace in thinking that Jesus will return. “

It is true that we must go through many trials and tribulations, but Jesus will come and all this will pass. We must wait for his return, like a good servant waiting for his Lord to return. May this news fill your heart with hope.

The Importance of Silence to Hear the Lord

 Eto  Comments Off on The Importance of Silence to Hear the Lord

Silence is important for listening to the Lord’s guidance

Adoração ao Santíssimo Sacramento no #PHN2017

Yesterday, I talked about our inner turmoil and how far it keeps us from God. Today, I want to meditate on the importance of silence. We must have a moment to be with God alone. Even spouses need this moment of solitude, for it is necessary to have their moment to listen to the Lord’s directives.

We should take days of rest, yes, but also retreats.

My brothers, our relationship with God is too important not to keep the flame of faith alive. If we turn away from Him, our faith will cool. That’s the secret!

I always pray for you.

One who is a child of God knows you can’t sell oneself for any price

Dirty money is rotten, and when it falls into our hands or in our pocket, it rots the heart. How can we then get in front of God? Or kneel before the Blessed Sacrament to adore him and ask him for the graces we need? Jesus asks us a disturbing question: “what’s the point for one to gain the whole world just to lose his or her soul?”. Every one has a price.

Each is sold by the value of his dignity. As a child of God you know you can’t sell yourself, because your value as a “child of God” is priceless. On the contrary, one who sells him or herself or is corrupted, loses  infinite dignity. In our ambition, do not measure how to win. That opens us up to  theft, corruption, quarrel, and we don’t know how to manage it.

We live in fear of the scandals and we don’t have peace, because our conscience weighs on us. You can cheat and steal from everyone, but we can’t shut the soft voice of conscience, which is the voice of God. And if we silence that voice, we become a wild beast, destructor.

When we cry, the Holy Spirit Washes Our soul

We are a body, and that body is suffering, but we have to take advantage even of our sufferings. They are part of everyone’s lives, and we cannot ignore them. So be happy of that your condition that makes you cry. It seems that the humiliation that makes us cry, that with each teardrop rolling out of our eyes is a sight for sore eyes of God.

The Lord sees us in the depths of our being. and this action is beautiful  helping us benefit from our suffering! First, as I already mentioned, suffering is part of life for all. Then, there are those moments that one feels a bitterness in the heart, that squeezes inside, leaving us just to cry.

When we cry, the Holy Spirit washes our soul, which is impregnated with impurity and sin, so we suffer. The washing of the Holy Spirit in our interior causes the tears. In these moments, God takes advantage of coming directly to us, we are without masks, needy, and is in tears spilled from the heart that He can welcome us.

Adoração - Procissão com Jesus Eucarístic

In the Victories and Defeats, let us not forget God

Illusion is illusion. Spend your life working, but what’s the point of all this? We are born, we die, and nothing changes. The wind blows to the North and South without getting anywhere. Life is too hard, our eyes don’t tire of seeing nor our ears of hearing. History always repeats itself. Nothing new, everything has already happened.

The book of Ecclesiastes is by a man who, even looking at his victories and defeats, with his pessimism and optimism, his hope and despair, God is not forgotten. We will have to answer to God for all that we live, to what is done in secret, whether good or evil.

The conclusion of the book of Ecclesiastes says rightly: “end of the speech, heard all things: fear God and observe his commandments, this is what it is up to each human being. About all the things you do, God will call in mind all that is hidden, whether good or evil “(Ecl -14 12.13).These are the last two verses of the book of Ecclesiastes, and if we meditate on the entire book, we will see be a copy for our life.
