24Dec20 (20Eve). Christmas is so exciting!! Maybe more as a kid when you got gifts and didn’t have to worry about giving the right gifts. A lot of time Christmas is lost in all the celebrations of Christmas during Advent. Hopefully we can be reminded of the amazingness of Christmas not because of gifts, but because of the great gift of God’s presen…
 
“It profits a man nothing to give his soul for the whole world, but for Wales…” (St. Thomas More in a Man for All Seasons)(correction it was Richard not Roger). Are we losing our life or gaining it. In a lot of the ways that we think will gain our life loses it, but in ways we feel like we are losing it we actually find it. This is true naturally a…
 
I share my story to let you know that God works. We would love to have huge spiritual experiences every day, but that is not often how it works. Peter spends a lot of ordinary time with Jesus to be able to confess who Jesus with his lips and ultimately with his life. The most important growth in spiritual experiences doesn’t come from random experi…
 
The Church is often represented as a boat in the midst of a storm. The storm will never over take it because we have the assurance of God. In our lives as well, we have the assurance that God is with us and the storms of life will not over take us. When we see the storm let us acknowledge it but keep our eyes focused on Jesus because the storm is o…
 
Nothing can separate us from God! Fr. Walter Ciszek has been a great example in my life to remember that God is always with us even when our plans do not work. Do we see God in our life? God is not in us only in the success or what we want, but in all things. We are Conquerors of all things in Christ. Are we convinced that nothing can separate us f…
 
King Midas gets his wish that brings about his destruction. King Solomon receives his humble request of wisdom that does not keep him from destruction. So, what will keep us from destruction? St. Paul in his wisdom learned through difficulty is that nothing destroys us if we love God. All things work for our good if we love God. The world wants jus…
 
In the parable today we see how God does not uproot all evil because it might destroy the good. Freewill is one of the greatest goods because it allows us to love. To destroy evil God would have to destroy free will which would destroy love. God is not overcome by the evil but beautifully in his power is patient. “Your mastery over all things makes…
 
Jesus calls all who labor and are burdened to come to him which means basically everyone. How does he give us rest? By telling us to work with him and learn. Be meek and humble with is not being like Eeyore, but like Jesus. Meekness is not weakness, but incredible strength. Strength that can only come from being reliant on Jesus. 7/5/20…
 
Of course you are worthy of Jesus. He is nice and loves everyone so he says we are all worthy… or actually what does he say? We often white-wash the message of Jesus. Sometimes on purpose because we don’t like what we here, but sometimes because we have heard it so much that we just drowned it out and don’t notice what it actually says. Today Jesus…
 
Life is incredibly confusing. Christianity can be incredibly confusing. Many parts of Christianity are mysteries, but sometimes we make it harder on ourselves by not knowing what is available to us. There are many different beliefs on communion. They are not all random and unable to be understood though. If we read in context and take scripture and…
 
Jesus tells us that it is better for us that he ascends to the Father and send the Advocate. Sometimes it doesn’t feel like it. It feels as though He is just abandoning us. Even though it feels like it that doesn’t mean that it is reality. In reality Jesus is just starting His work in the world and our lives when He ascends. May we be open to his w…
 
When the sun goes down do we freak out that it won’t rise tomorrow. No because experience has shown that it has always risen again. In the same way in the World, Church, and our personal life there have been dark moments, but the sun rises again. We have hope in tomorrow, in Jesus, in eternal life because God is faithful. He has been faithful in th…
 
Today is the Gospel story of the Road to Emmaus. The first Mass celebrated after the Last Supper. Jesus is the priest leads the disciples through scripture and then breaks bread. Great reminder that sometimes we are walking with Jesus and we don’t even notice it. Sometimes we feel really close and sometimes we just have a lot of questions. Keep on …
 
If someone tells you to do something and you aren’t sure if it is safe, one way to check is to see them do it first. Jesus tells us to not be afraid. Well why should we know that we should follow and it is safe to believe. Because He has went before us. We have founded hope because Jesus has conquered the world in sin and death. Let us stick with h…
 
Holy Thursday is an amazing day that ends lent and begins the most sacred time of all the year with the Easter Triduum. On Holy Thursday the Priesthood and the Eucharist are instituted. The priesthood is an amazing gift and to better understand it I came up with the 5 or 6 “P”s of Priesthood. Peter-best example Not Perfect-still human and need to g…
 
What is the importance of your word? Or others words? Some people’s words mean more to us then others. Why? Sometimes people’s words don’t mean anything? Maybe this is because their word has been broken to many times. Does God ever break his word? NO!!! He always fulfills… Isaiah 55:10-11; Ez 37:14; Psalm 130; Romans 8. God’s word is so great and t…
 
Discipline can be for punishment or restorative. We often view any suffering that comes from God as punishment and retributive, but the Lord is more concerned about restorative discipline that teaches and helps us grow. But it needs our participation. Jesus puts clay in our eyes, and we need to go wash it out. Let us do our part. 3/22/20…
 
Is the Lord in Our Midst or Not? (A20L3). There are many times that we can feel that abandoned by God. However, from looking at salvation history we can see that God is always in our midst if we are open. Here at the Mass God is present in the Liturgy of the Word and Liturgy of the Eucharist. The scripture puts God in our midst and helps remind us …
 
Transfiguration and Transubstantiation! Faith is that whether we experience or not God is working. Faith that this is the way God wants us to worship and his is transforming us. Transubstantiation of Bread and Wine in the Mass is similar to the Transfiguration. “My Lord and My God”. “I believe help my unbelief”. We don’t stay on the mountain. After…
 
Satan, Sin, and Salvation Satan is real. Sin closed the doors of heaven. God the Father in his infinite love sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to bring us back to himself. We participate in that salvation primarily and most perfectly in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass where that saving work is made present once again. We as Catholics have this great gift …
 
St. Jerome says, “Ignorance of Scripture is ignorance of Christ”. This is certainly true and a huge defect in many Catholics. Today I would like to do a shore Lectio Divina and pray with scripture to come to know it better. 2/2/20 Lectio Divina 4 Stages (Read) What does the Text say? (Meditation) What does the Text saying to me today? (Prayer) What…
