GOSPEL OF LIFE

28May

We encounter Paul in chains, jailed and beaten.  Then something amazing happens while praying.  Even beyond that something more amazing unfolds as Paul and Silas stay behind to safe the life of their Jailer.

PEOPLE PLEASING

28May

What happens when we try to please everyone?  Hod do we seek to be pleasing to the Lord?  St Peter reminds us to sanctify the Christ as Lord of our hearts.  Does Jesus have primacy in our life?

ST RITA LOVE CRUCIFIED

22May

We remember the life and love of St Rita, patron of impossible causes.  We look to her as directed by John Paul II in the great jubilee year of 2000.  We also reflect on JEsus words from John 15:9-11, which are the heart of th eLast Supper Discourse.

PEACE

20May

"Peace I leave with you; my peace i give you. Not as the world gives do I give it to you."  We hear these words from the lips of Jesus in today's gospel.  Peace seems so far removed from the lives of so many an diet Jesus gives us a recipe for availing our self to such a gift in our lives here and now.

TEMPLE

20May

We see that in the early church a large number of priest were being obedient to the faith.  This is a shocking statement.  The old testament priest were dedicated to the service of the temple, in particular the service of the presence of God dwelling in the Temple.  Now they shift their conviction and dedication.  They have come to discern the presence of God not to be in the temple but in the person of Jesus.

CHOSEN BY LOT

15May

We look at St Matthias who replaced Judas.  We also reflect on why Judas went astray ad how we imitate him in our life.

FATIMA

13May

We commemorate the appearance of the BLessed Mother to the three children in Fatima,Portugal May 13, 1917.  We recall her invitation and seek to continually live that out even today.

GOOD SHEPHERD

12May

We welcome Good Shepherd Sunday. Jesus tells us the sheep will recognize his voice and follow after him.  What does that voice look sound like?  How can we be sure we are not following the wrong shepherd to place we do not know nor are intended to go?

SLIME BALL

9May

We encounter the conversion of St Paul as he makes his way to Damascus.  What I want to Focus on is Ananias' hesitation as God ask him to go and pray for Saul.  Ananias heard of Saul's evil ways and he second guesses God's choose of Saul as his chosen interment.  Ananias is invited to operated at a level beyond the senses, to trust in God's vision.
