SEASONAL GOODNESS

30Oct

IS there a moment or day in which goodness is unacceptable?  Jesu invites us to ponder such a reality.  We also look at saints as we anticipate all saints day this weekend.  Pax et Bonum

INVINCIBLE

29Oct

God's love is invincible.  Nothing can keep us from God's love as St Paul relays to us.  nothing can separate us but one thing.

SALVIFIC ACTION

29Oct

A believer is someone who has experienced God's salvific action in his life.  What does that look like of us in one regard.

BEGGAR SPIRITUALITY

24Oct

What can the blind  beggar teach us about ourselves?  How can we become confident disciples as a result of our own helplessness realized?  The words of the beggar are pressed upon our lips every time we gather at Mass: Lord, Have Mercy.  we begin every celebration channeling our inner beggar.

BE THE ONE

20Oct

We look at the words of ST Paul in today's letter to the Romans.  Paul emphasizes the power of one the one man Adam and the one man Jesus.  The power of one is always at play.  Mother Teresa believed so; so much so she made her it a command in response the suffering  servant of Isaiah who said, "I looked for one that would comfort me and I found no one..."  She wrote beneath these words, "Be the one."

DAILY BECOME HEROIC

18Oct

Today in the life of the Church, Pope Francis is presiding at the canonization of spouses: louis and Zele Martin.  We look at their life as a model for us.  Also, in the gospel Jesus shows us what is the highest honor we can achieve and the greatest accolade bestowed on us as Christians that is servanthood.  The greatest must be servant of all. In our service the daily becomes heroic.

CHARIS

15Oct

We look at the seven penitential psalms and who they aid us in life: recognition, expression, trust.  How do we become mercy for others.

WITHOUT EXCUSE

15Oct

It is one thing to point a finger.  IT is another to lend a hand. Jesus invites us to do both.  We must recognize bad behavior but also be wiling to assist those in need.  This way we try touch folks with the means by which God has touched us.

CHARITY CLEANSES

13Oct

We look at St Paul's words about the gospel as the power of God and Jesus words about alms giving and charity at work in and through us to purify us.

LOVE IN ACTION

10Oct

Lob ein action is that which requires choices.  We have to choose.  Some choices have moral weight determined not by the one choosing but the one who sets the standard. Sometimes we have to recognize things as right or wrong otherwise we become moral wimps.  There is a rendering according to the letter to the Hebrews and Jesus in the gospel.
