ROCK OF FAITH

23Aug

ST Paul tells us that God is strange, his judgments are inscrutable and unsearchable.  Yet where do we find certain?  How can we know for sure we are on the right way?  Jesus gives us the key to unlock the mystery of faith and practice.

RESTORE THIGS TO CHRIST

23Aug

WE celebrate the Feast of Pius x whose motto was to restore all things in Christ.  How do we renovate a fallen world.  How do we renovate ourselves.  How does restoration happen.

LOVE THAT I MAY LOVE

21Aug

We reflect on St Bernard's words in light of today's gospel.  Love is its own reward.  Its profit is in its practice.

STOP LOOK GO

20Aug

When growing up and learning to walk across the street we were taught three simple commands: stop, Look, Go.  These three little words can help us tremendously as we continue to go through life and as we do so the eye of the needle gets bigger as we grow smaller.  Being small is what it is all about.

QUITTER

17Aug

No body likes a quitter.  No body likes those who give in too easily and never finish what they start.  

The woman in today's gospel has no quit in her.  She has every reason to back off, step down, walk away an diet she remains steadfast.  She gains her request through perseverance.

REACH BEYOND

17Aug

WE celebrate the feast of the assumption of the blessed mother into heaven body and soul.  One like us has arrived and the gates of heaven are thrown wide open by the victory of Christ.  We see that victory in the mother of God herself.

THE MARK

14Aug

Imagine given the task to decide who lives and who dies?  This is the vision of Ezekiel in today's first reading.  Those who are saved are given a mark on their forehead. We too bear the mark on our foreheads.  At Baptism we received the sign of the cross as welcome into the Christian community.  How do we live out our mission and what can we learn from Ezekiel's vision.

RECEPTIVE

12Aug

What is our favorite food?  What do we like to sink our teeth into?  What about the promise of God?  How can we book like children and find ourselves fully experiencing the kingdom of God on earth?

GOD EXPERIENCE

12Aug

Ezekiel has a profound experience with God.  He describes his vision and there is something in that vision that is telling.  IT changes what we think.  Life isn't about a life changing message but rather a life directing message.
