GLORY!

As Catholic Christians we are called to give glory to God, but, how do we do that?

Here at the parish we’ve been celebrating a ‘Year of Prayer’ by identifying different types of prayer each month.  April’s theme is ‘Glory’.  It’s easy to say ‘Glory to God’, but how can we/I do that?

In 1 Corinthians 10:31, St. Paul tells us “So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.”

So, when do we give God glory?

…when we forgive that person who has wronged us

…when we pray for others who are going through a rough time

…when we go out of our way to visit a sick family member or friend

…when we pray for and forgive our enemies

…when we speak calmly to someone we would like to scream at

…when we notice, appreciate and thank God for a beautiful sunset, or a beautiful flower, or a  

     majestic mountain range

 …when we give something up we want/need so that someone else can have something they

     want/need

 …when we love one another

 During the month of April let’s be especially mindful of giving glory to God in all aspects of our life.
