THANKS PRAISE PENANCE

28Nov

We encounter the story of Daniel.  He has been accused of being faithful to God and thus is thrown in the Lions' den.  How many of us would be accused in our life of faithfulness and trust in God? HOW is thanks and trust to side of the same coin when it comes to our relationship with God?  We look at the proclamation set forth by PResident Lincoln, this day set aside for Thanks, Praise, and Penance.

DO NOT BE TERRIFIED

26Nov

What are we afraid of?  How does fear dominate?  What ultimately is at stake?  As we journey through the end time literature of the bible we refocus  our attention not to the end but a new beginning.

RIDING WITH THE KING

25Nov

What do the ISRAELITES mean when they tell David, "Here we are, your bone and flesh?"  How does that relate to the Genesis story of Adam and Eve and the Last Supper with JEsus?  We reflect on the connection as we honor Christ the KIng of the Universe.  IT is good to be King, but it is better to belong to the kingdom.

WHO SINGS

22Nov

Today is the feast of St Cecilia the patroness of musicians and singing.  Why do we sing?  Who sings? We also reflect own the ecclesial dimension of the sacrament of confession for it is in confession we remember the song of redemption.

EXTINGUISH NOT

21Nov

We continue to journey with the 2nd book of Maccabees.  We are journeying toward a rededication of the temple.  The story all leads up to the festival of lights, where one solitary candle refuses to be extinguished.  Such is the life of faith for each of us.

A MOTHER’S LOVE

20Nov

What does a mother's love consist?  What does true love consist?  How do we tend to the material and spiritual well being of those we love? 

Have we sold out?

PORK CHOP

19Nov

What role does the elderly provide in our life?  Are the elderly only valued because of their utility or is there a deeper dignity that bring a greater witness to our world?  Eleazar, the 90 year old shows us more.

Forward

10Nov

Are we forward thinkers? What is the ground of our motivation in life? 


In the creed we profess that we look forward to the resurrection of the  dead and life of the world to come.  What in our life proclaims that message daily.

SAVING POWER

8Nov

How does God reveal his saving power?  What should we look for?  Perhaps we think abut miracles, earth shaking and mountain quaking realities; maybe we think about that which defy the laws of physics.  But there is a more subtle and majestic way.

TRADEMARK

7Nov

What doe sit mean to paten or copyright something?  Can you copyright the whole human race?  How does repentance bring joy to heaven?  When we repent we let Jesus have free disposition with our lives.
