    (July 1st, Solemnity of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus)

    Praise God!

    I finished my radioactive iodine treatment, and my final scans came back that surgery and treatment got rid of all my thyroid cells, which means I am cancer free.  It is only through God's great mercy and that He heard the prayers of so many people that I am here and doing well!  For these prayers, I will be eternally grateful.  I continue to pray for all of you!

    Now, it is time to enjoy summer vacation with my dear family!!

    I leave you with some beautiful quotes on this most beautiful day when we meditate on how perfect God loves us through the heart of His beloved Son:

    "We do not understand ourselves and have no idea what to seek.  We need to trust God, leaving things in his care.  He knows us better than we know ourselves.  Humility means we are satisfied with what God gives us.  God owes us no favors.  He knows we are not able to drink of his cup." - St. Teresa of Avila

    "The essential nucleus of Christianity is expressed in the heart of Jesus; in Christ the whole of the revolutionary newness of the Gospel was revealed and given to us: the Love that saves us and already makes us live in God's eternity.  Even our shortcomings, our limitations, and our weaknesses must lead us back to the heart of Jesus.  His divine Heart calls to our hearts, inviting us to come out of ourselves, to abandon our human certainties to trust in him, and, following is example, to make ourselves a gift of love without reserve."  - Pope Benedict XVI

    "Beloved, let us love one another, because love is of God; everyone who loves is begotten by God and knows God.  Whoever is without love does not know God, for God is love.  In this way the love of God was revealed to us: God sent his only Son into the world so that we might have life through him.  In this is love: not that we have loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son in expiation for our sins.  Beloved, if God so loved us, we also must love one another.  No one has ever seen God.  Yet, if we love one another, God remains in us, and his love is brought to perfection in us." (1 John 4:7-12)
