In The Name of Jesus

When I went to Mass in Custer on Sunday morning the priest gave an excellent homily. He reminded us that absolutely everything we do, we do in the name of the Lord. Whether it is good or bad. Whether we curse or bless, we do so in the name of the Lord, because we belong to the Lord, and his mark is on our soul through Baptism, and remains there forever.

This fact gives greater consequence to our actions. Both our sin and our righteous deeds are magnified because of who we belong to. And so, we must strive to recall in each moment that what we are about to do, or say, or not do, we do in the name of Jesus, as his hands and his feet.
