04_The Gospel According to Job

Grace was bestowed upon Christ, not only as an individual, but inasmuch as He is the Head of the Church, so that it might overflow into His members; and therefore Christ's works are referred to Himself and to His members…(St. Thomas Aquinas, Summa III, 7:9, 8:5).


Thank you, Michelle S; Lori Z; Casey H; Michelle F; and Elma R, my newest Friends of the Show, for loving and lifting me!

LOVE the Word® is a Bible study method based on Mary's own practice: lectio without the Latin.

L – Listen (Receive the Word.)

O – Observe (Choose one or more of the following personality approaches to connect the passage to your life and recent events.)

F | Franciscan – Listen to this musical rendition of Job 19:25-26 and 1 Corinthians 15:20 from Handel's Messiah.

I | Ignatian – Take some time to go to Confession and Adoration this week, keeping especially in mind how Jesus is your mediator in Confession and redemption.

A | Augustinian – In what matter or circumstance do you especially need to experience Jesus as your mediator right now? A relationship? A financial, or medical, or other difficult circumstance? How, also, can you mediate for someone else this week?

T | Thomistic – How do you know your Redeemer lives? List some concrete reasons for your faith.

V – Verbalize (Pray about your thoughts and emotions.)

Remembering that He loves you and that you are in His presence, talk to God about the particulars of your O – Observe step. You may want to write your reflections in your LOVE the Word® journal. Or, get a free journal page and guide in the right-hand margin.

E – Entrust (May it be done to me according to your word!)

For I know that my Redeemer lives, and at last he will stand upon the earth; and after my skin has been thus destroyed, then from my flesh I shall see God. Amen +

*LOVE the Word® exercises are offered according to FIAT: the four personalities, or “prayer forms,” explored in Prayer and Temperament, by Chester Michael and Marie Norrisey: Franciscan, Ignatian, Augustinian, and Thomistic: FIAT! These prayer forms correspond to the Myers-Briggs personality types.
