No Benefits in the Contract : A Catholic Reflection

No Benefits in the Contract : A Catholic Reflection: "When Jesus calls a person to Himself, He calls them to the cross – to suffering, death, and unconditional love. The true follower of Jesus does not try to get anything out of following Jesus but tries to get out of that selfish attitude. When Jesus became a man and died for us, He didn't need anything from us. He did it because He loved us. We must respond accordingly."

In other His Face NOT His Him for Who He is and not for what You can get out of Him(hard to seperate the two sometimes though, because He is so good and generous).

Terry Modica's reflection

Wednesday of the 26th Week in Ordinary Time (Year 2):

"God and me alone — that's true holiness. From this intimate friendship springs everything else: our families, our friends, our ministries, our jobs, our homes, our possessions, etc. Whatever is good and right for us, whatever will enhance our friendship with God, whatever is a gift of his love for us, these come from the solitude and solidarity of our unity with God."
