Covenant... The sacred Family bond God calls into union with him. We have all of salvation history and biblical text which speaks on the covenants of the past as God has worked to draw mankind to himself, but what does that mean for you and me? Well, a Sacrament makes real and tangible the spiritual and intangible aspects of God in our lives.
As a baby I received the Sacrament of Baptism as it was chosen by my parents and Godparents. As a child I received the Blessed Sacrament at Holy Communion as well as my first Sacrament of Reconciliation(Confession)... And as a pre-teen I received the gifts of the Holy Spirit as I received the Sacrament of Confirmation. However in all of these I was a child... With the reason of a child, and was not fully aware of what I was doing.
"When I was a child, I used to talk as a child, think as a child, reason as a child; when I became a man, I put aside childish things.At present we see indistinctly, as in a mirror, but then face to face. At present I know partially; then I shall know fully, as I am fully known. So faith, hope, love remain, these three; but the greatest of these is love." - 1 Corinthians 13:11-13
Each vocation is the means by which one lives out and puts into practice the universal call/vocation to holiness.... And in marriage your spouse is the one through which you will become Holy.
Needless to say.... through all of the things we have been through and have persevered, I am happy to now be engaged to my beautiful from the inside out fiancee Janet. As we prepare for this next step in our life of love with God, please pray for us that we may be true to the call that has been put on our hearts in our daily life and interactions. Please.....
And shouts out to the rest of my family who shared not only the engagement at #TheEncounterNYC this past Friday it is truly a blessing to be a part of an even bigger "Covenant" now taking place in today's world with the amazing people around me. We laughed, cried, prayed, performed, and learned more how we can be living representations of this Covenant. It is something that will forever strengthen and guide me. Thank you.
