Heartbeat of the Father

Jesus speaks in today’s Gospel about the importance of the law in living as Christian disciples. More than rules and regulations, the Law Jesus places before us is living the Will of the Father. In order to know the Will of the Father, I must draw close to Him. Heavenly Father, draw me so close...

Why?

Young children and their teacher killed in their classroom. Others shot and injured. Parents and family members devastated. Jesus wept.
