Quote for the Day

“The Father and I are one.”

“Holy Father, protect them in your name that you have given me, so that they may be one, as we are one… But now I am coming to you, and I speak these things in the world so that they may have my joy made complete in themselves… As you have sent me into the world, so I have sent them into the world… I ask not only on behalf of these, but also on behalf of those who will believe in me through their word, that they may all be one. As you, Father, are in me and I am in you, may they also be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me. The glory that you have given me I have given them, so that they may be one, as we are one, I in them and you in me, that they may become completely one, so that the world may know that you have sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.”

— Jesus (John 10:30; 17:11, 13, 18, 20-23, NRSV)

    How perfectly appropiate at this time.I remember when our daughter, Stephanie,graduated from I.U. with a perfect 4.0 I gave her a copy of the Magnificat and told her to read it as though it was meant for her.I did this because only one of her parents graduated from high school, didn’t have the time of day at first,struggled and only barely made it to the lower income class. All 4 of my children are such hard workers and I attribute it to my prayers and God’s love. That the Lord would bless me with such children makes me cry and makes me love Him more each day.
