WISE AND FOOLISH

30Aug

Jesus speaks in graphic images to grab us and pull us close so that the message comes through loud and clear.  SUch is the parable of the wise and foolish virgins.

WHY CANT I

28Aug

We celebrate the feast and memorial of St. Augustine.  HE was man who was not born a christian but became a christian by way of conversion.  He sought hungrily for truth and refused to settle for less, for superficiality, for mediocrity. 


HE was never afraid of the truth.

HE KNOWS

27Aug

WE reflect on the life of St. Monica.  She was prayerful, tearful, and persistent. 


We also reflect on the reality of loving only what we know.

IN BETHLEHEM

23Aug

IS there such a thing as insignificant moments?  We travel back in town on the sands of Moab and look into a relationship and discover the power of small moments.

BETTER THAN OR BETTER FOR THE SAKE OF

21Aug

we reflect on the parable of the workers in the vineyard.  The ones hired last get paid the same as the one hired early.  Is this fair and just?

Do we live by our standard or by the standard of God's goodness.

LEAD US NOT INTO TEMPTATION

17Aug

We continue to reflect on the "OUR FATHER" the prayer Jesus gives to the disciples to pray.  We zero our focus on the last part of the prayer, "lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil..."

TOSS OR TOUCH

16Aug

We reflect a bit on the life of St. Stephen of Hungary, who was known for his charity and attention to beggars.  Do we toss people charity or do we touch them with the love of Christ?  We also reflect on the book of Joshua and wonder do we recognize the good things God has done for us.

ASSUMPTION: SURPASSING THE IMPOSSIBLE

15Aug

We celebrate the Solemnity of the Assumption of the blessed Mother into heaven, body and soul.  Untouched by decay she enter into Glory.  Mary's surrender, Mary's yes shows us that our yes and surrender to God is not in vain. God is fascinating.  What he does always surpasses the impossible.

BRAVE AND STEADFAST

13Aug

Mose bids the people of ISrael farewell. He leaves his legacy behind as he invites the people to be brave and steadfast. How are we brave?

11Aug

We continue to reflect on the gift of prayer in particular the "Our Father" the pray of the disciple.  Why do we pray?
