St. Joseph – “Always work to build up the Kingdom of God in hearts and in the world through Holy Love”

Holy Love Ministry

May 1, 2017
Feast of St. Joseph the Worker

St. Joseph says:

“Praise be to Jesus.”

“Always work to build up the Kingdom of God in hearts and in the world through Holy Love. Once the heart has opened to Holy Love, the soul must work to become the message. Holy Love should permeate his thoughts, words and actions. Then, as an example of Holy Love, the soul is evangelizing the message without being aware of it.”

“Many hearts can be converted in such a way.”

Read Colossians 3:12-16+

Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassion, kindness, lowliness, meekness, and patience, forbearing one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in the one body. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, as you teach and admonish one another in all wisdom, and as you sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs with thankfulness in your hearts to God.

Read Colossians 4:5-6+

Conduct yourselves wisely toward outsiders, making the most of the time. Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer every one.
