TRINITY DOES IT MATTER

30May

Today is Trinity Sunday.  Does it Matter that God has revealed himself as atrocity, 3 distinct persons and one divine nature, this communion of love that is the ground of all reality?

DONT BE HUSHED

30May

We look at two things today.  The first is a reflection from Siach as to how God needs no counselor.   Yet, how often do we try to counsel God rather than letting him be who he is.  Secondly, we encounter the blind man, Bartimaeus, on the side of the road to and from Jericho.  Bartimaeus teacher sis much about how important it is to not be hushed by the crowd.

SAME OLE SAME

30May

It seems nothing ever changes.  The longing of the human heart to be heard and for justice as been present every generation.  Jesus' insistence that service should never go out of style is all a bedrock of what it means to follow in his footsteps.  Humility produces generosity and generosity is lived out in service.

GIVE UP

27May

St Philip Neri reminds us to wish, ask, work for Christ otherwise we do not know what we want or what we are doing.  We examine the statement by St Peter in todays Gospel, "Lord we have given up everything to follow you."  What have we given up in our life?

LEAN IN WITH THE SPIRIT

23May

We look at Pentecost as a family snap shot of when we were at our best.  What can we learn from the early experience of the church that might empower us moving forward that we too might be drenched with the Spirit.

DO YOU LOVE ME

23May

We explore the end of the gospel of John as Jesus ask Peter one question, "Do you love me?"  Here is the one question that occupy our hearts and minds and no other question should ever take its place.  In the end, this will be the question posed to the answer of our life lived.  Then we explore submission, holy submission to God's will.

ONE WISH

21May

We hear these words form Jesus, "Father those you gave me are your gift to me.  I wish that where I am they too shall be."  We are gift from the Father to the Son.  And Jesus as one wish, one desire: to be with us.

CONSECRATED

21May

JEsus tells us that we have been consecrated in truth.  We all live the consecrated life.  St Paul points out the necessity of truth as a pathway to happiness.

GENTLENESS

20May

Gentleness is a fruit of the Spirit.  How do we carry ourselves gently?  How do we bear the burden of another as God bears our burdens?

W begin our 9 day anticipation of Pentecost.  We look at the fruits of the spirit and a prayer
