EARTHEN VESSELS

What is the highest aspiration for the human life?  We know Momma's know best, how can we let the mother of today's gospel guide our steps?  A few words from Pope Francis from world youth day in Rio.

JUST ENOUGH

25Jul

The ISraelites find themselves struggling against freedom. They forsake the present moment by longing for the past and God invites them to live in the moment as offer to nourish them with the Manna.

MARY MAGDALENE

22Jul

We reflect on the life of St. Mary the one who was the first witness of the resurrection.  She shows us how to incorporate our weakness and sinfulness into a profound life of faith.  Jesus never binds us to our past but always opens wide a future to us.

GREATNESS

21Jul

How are we to be great?  Being great is a result of imitating greatness.  Who is greatness?  How is hospitality, creating space and time for another, a measure of greatness?

OBSTINATE

19Jul

We turn to the life of Israel in Egypt.  God has called Moses to lead his people out into freedom.  We encounter the obstinate heart of Pharaoh and we reflect on our own obstinate heart in our lives.  We see that resistance can be a place of grace and growth.

MEEK AND HUMBLE

18Jul

Today God reveals his name to Moses.  What does that mean for us?  Jesus lays down the two attributes of greatness often over looked in our society.  How can be great?

NO ONE KNOWS

17Jul

we reflect on the gospel of matthew chapter 11 and the the encounter of Moses with the Burning Bush.  God surprised Moses.  God continually surprises us.  How has God surprised you in your life, your journey, your walk.  When have we been invited to take off our shoes and surrender?

IFS,ANDS,BUTS

12Jul

We reach a turning point in the gospel of Matthew.    AS we turn to enter into chapter 10 of the gospel, a new mystery opens up before us.  Jesus who can do all things in himself, by himself decide to no longer go alone but rather to include us as collaborators and cooperators with the kingdom process.
