Surrender to Christ

Christ is faithful and will never abandon us. We should treat Him as our best of friends. The reason we were born was to ultimately be with Him in heaven. As Christians, we live in this world, but are not of this world. Our true home is in heaven. We should therefore constantly strive to obtain eternal life. In order to do so we must rely on the grace provided by Jesus Christ. We cannot merit heaven on our own because of our fallen nature.

We should have recourse to the Blessed Virgin Mary always and beg her to come to us along with her son Jesus Christ. We should ask with confidence. Christ comes to us in the Blessed Sacrament and we may receive Him whenever we wish. He gives us His Flesh and Blood and no enemy in the world can touch us when we have the Son of God on our side!

Let us surrender ourselves completely to Jesus Christ. Let us ask the Blessed Virgin Mary to draw us closer to Him. Let us allow the will of Christ to always work in and through us as His followers.

Sincerely in Christ,

Father Jeff Fasching
