You Are God’s Masterpiece

Bishop Thomas J. Tobin

I don’t listen to classical music all the time, but sometimes I do, and while driving home recently I heard on the radio a Bach cantata that was inspired by the biblical account of Mary’s Visitation to Elizabeth. It got me thinking about how many works of art, even in the secular world, have been created by religious instinct.
Think about the glorious music inspired by religion – Handel’s Messiah, so many Mass settings of the great masters, beloved hymns of Christian devotion, and even the joyful Christmas carols we sing each year.
And what about the other works of art, paintings and sculptures? Michelangelo’s Pietà, the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, and Leonardo da Vinci’s Last Supper come quickly to mind.
And consider the great buildings, veritable monuments to faith, that have withstood the test of time — the stunning basilicas of Rome, including St. Peter’s; Westminster Abbey in London; the Chartres Cathedral in France, and many other spectacular houses of worship around the globe, Christian and non-Christian alike. Remember how many people around the world, including secularists, were horrified by the devastating fire that ripped through Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris last spring?
Now the point of this is not to praise great works of music, art and architecture. It’s to praise you, for in fact, you are God’s masterpiece, his pièce de résistance. Take all the great works of art throughout history — those that have been or ever will be — add them all together, and they’re not as valuable as your immortal soul.
You are the Divine Artist’s masterpiece because he has fashioned you in his image and likeness. “What is man that you should think of him; you have made him a little less than the angels; you have crowned him with glory and honor,” Psalm 8 proclaims. And “man is the summit of the Creator’s work,” explains the Catechism of the Catholic Church. (#343)
Someday, all the spectacular works of art will cease to exist. The sacred music will no longer be sung; St. Peter’s Basilica will lie in ruins; and the Pietà will be a pile of dust, only to be scattered by the wind. Your soul, though, will last forever, never to die, unable to be destroyed. The only question is: Where will it reside? Where will it spend eternity? In heaven or in hell?
Something to think about: Your soul is your most valuable possession. Are you taking care of it?

Medjugorje: Our Lady's message to Mirjana Of December 2, 2019

"Dear children.
As I am looking at you who love my Son, my heart is being filled with tenderness. I am blessing you with a motherly blessing. With a motherly blessing, I am also blessing your shepherds -  you who speak the words of my Son, who bless with His hands and who love Him so much that you are ready to make every sacrifice for Him with joy. You are following Him, who was the first shepherd, the first missionary.

My children, apostles of my love, to live and work for others, for all those whom you love through my Son, is the joy and comfort of earthly life. If through prayer, love and sacrifice the Kingdom of God is in your hearts, then your life is joyful and bright. Among those who love my Son and who love each other through Him, words are not necessary. A gaze is sufficient for the unspoken words and unexpressed feelings to be heard. There where love reigns, time no longer counts. We are with you.

My Son knows you and loves you. Love is that which brings you to me and through that love I will come to you and speak to you of the works of salvation. I desire for all of my children to have faith and to feel my motherly love which leads them to Jesus. Therefore, you, my children, wherever you go, illuminate with love and faith as apostles of love.
Thank you."     Video  https://marytv.tv/mirjanas-apparition/
