01-06-2024 Sirach 7 V3436 Avoid not weeping people


The Book of Sirach Ch Seven v- 34 thru 36

34 Do not avoid those who weep, but mourn with those who mourn. 35 Do not hesitate to visit the sick, because for such things you will be loved. 36 In whatever you do, remember your last days, and you will never sin.

Our God reminds us daily that we should be living the Corporal and Spiritual Works of Mercy as I remind us today what they are; The SEVEN CORPORAL WORKS OF MERCY are Feeding the Hungry, Giving Drink to the Thirsty, Clothing the Naked, Sheltering the Homeless, Visiting the Imprisoned, Comforting the Sick and Burying the Dead. The SEVEN SPIRITUAL WORKS OF MERCY are Teaching the Ignorant, Praying for the Living and the Dead, Correcting Sinners, Counseling Those in Doubt, Consoling the Sorrowful, Bearing Wrongs Patiently and Forgiving Wrongs Willingly. When you accomplish these on a daily basis, you seek to serve the Will of God living goodwill for Salvation. If you’ve never cried openly with someone who is in mourning, then you haven’t felt the vibrations of God in open prayer and I recommend you truly hug and hold someone you love when someone close to you dies or even holding a dear friend with they lose someone special in their lives. The feeling of being considerate comes when Consoling the Sorrowful initiating love, faith and hope of Christ’s mercy and grace. It is the Haiku I’ve written today to celebrate the ability to mourn. The haiku is a Japanese poetic form that consists of three lines, with five syllables in the first line, seven in the second, and five in the third. Listen for them as you hear the poem out loud. Amen.

This Haiku is called;

Souls Consoled

Raindrops softly fall

Healing tears in mourning hearts

Love shared, souls consoled


Join me as we pray our daily prayer of forgiveness. The Lord’s Prayer.

At the Savior's command and formed by divine teaching, we dare to say:

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name; thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Deliver us, Lord, we pray, from every evil, graciously grant peace in our days, that, by the help of your mercy, we may be always free from sin and safe from all distress, as we await the blessed hope and the coming of our Savior, Jesus Christ. For the kingdom, the power and the glory are yours now and for ever. Amen.

I am sorry Lord. I believe You died and rose for me. Please forgive me as I forgive others. I share You as my Lord and Savior seeking to live your Will in all things. Prayers for wife Toni and my mother Betty pray for our children especially our two oldest Alexandra & Allen Son in Law Mark Stern; Julian, Gabriel and Jeffrey and our grandchildren Oliver, Julian and Elliott. We pray for those we’ve said we’d pray for and those who’ve asked us to pray for them. We pray for the dying as we do each day Lord give them peace in their last breath. We pray for Holy Mother Church. Our prayers for a little boy named David Alexander. Praise God thank You Jesus. In Jesus Precious Blood by His Name we pray. Amen.

**Avoid not weeping people**

Avoid not weeping people

Mourn with people mourning cry

Sick visit hesitate not to climb the steeple

Love displayed for you you’ll never deny

Do you whatever

Makes life sweeter

Days last remember

Sin never repeater
