Prayer

       If you are a member at Life Of Us and Saints, or at least you've read it, then you will know 2 things 1. I want to become a priest and 2 You will know how important I think prayer is. I often have a will continue to write posts about prayer, but most to all will be written here and prayers. Every Day I will put a new prayer, you may know the prayer you may not. But I will be posting a prayer here everyday!

   
          God, Answers our prays at the best time. Well his best time for us. Like this one time when I was trying to come up with a blog post for LOUAS. It was 10:00pm and I wanted to write something. So I prayed and Prayed : nothing. So I went to bed.... Then I woke up... Prayed some more and then I came to my computer and opened the bible... and Prayed for something anything. And then I opened to a page in Hebrews 7... Hebrews 7: 21 My eyes first saw and it said, " The Lord as sworn and will not change his mind: You are a priest forever."     And that hit me hard. It stuck out. So I decided to write about that.

        God, answers prayers when he wants to. Not when we want them answered: yes it may be in our time frame. But it usually won't be right away. (Except for when Jesus Prayed him and the father were one) God, will answer them at his time for our good. And the good of everyone around you. 


        If you pray hard enough and believe then your half way there to be answered. To be heard by God. He makes these things happen so that we may believe. And we will rise to him if we believe. We are often told to do 3 things in lent : Pray, Fast, and give Alms. You  really hear to do those during lent. But No, we are suppose to do all of those all year long. We are suppose to grow a deeper connection with God by praying. We are suppose to Fast at the right times to also grow a connection with God. (Fast and pray :D even deeper connection)  And give alms. We give alms to those who are less fortunate. (usually) But then usually need it all the other times of the year to.

Forgive... Not Seven times but Seventy Seven times

21 Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, “Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother or sister who sins against me? Up to seven times?” 22 Jesus answered, “I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times.
Matthew 18:21-22 
It's very hard to forgive. Forgiveness is essential to our life here on earth. Jesus gave us the perfect example of forgiveness while he was on earth. Jesus loved us so much that he bore all our sins on the cross that goes before us. Every wrong we have done; every pain has become  A LOT LIGHTER because Jesus bore it before us.
Jesus is asked by his own, disciples, how many times should they forgive. Because they know that they have to forgive, and they know they everyone does wrong, but how much is enough? We need to draw a line right? No.
Jesus tells us that we shouldn't just forgive seven times. He told us to forgive 77 times. Or 77 X 7 times. Which is a more perfect number. Jesus told us that we must forgive has many times that someone does wrong. …

Feed My Sheep

During this Easter season we are given the opportunity to listen and reflect on the word of God from the Gospel of John. For the third and final time this weekend, we will hear a post-resurrection appearance of Christ to his apostles. It is through these appearances that Christ proves his resurrection, dispels the darkness of doubt in his apostle’s mind, and commissions them to make known the love and joy of these events to the world.

The Gospel this weekend tells us that after the death and resurrection of Christ, the disciples have returned to fishing, as they once did before they followed Christ. These skilled fishermen do not catch anything all night, until a man comes on the shore of the beach and tells them to cast their net on the right side of the boat, and they catch an abundance of fish, that the net should have broke, but it did not. After they caught these fish, the apostles realized that it was the Lord, who has now called them a second time from their job of fishing to …

Fishers of Men

I have had the pleasure recently to start teaching again the First Penance and Eucharist at my Parish. It is always  a great time for me to know that I am laying the seeds of God in their heart and knowing that I am preparing them for a once-in-life-time event.  I love seeing the kids who are earnest to learn and who want to be there.

     In todays' Gospel, we are presented with an overview of Jesus life. Jesus does three distinctive things, that Matthew wraps up very quickly. He teaches, proclaims, and heals. These three unfold for us what we can expect from Jesus during his life time.  However, before he begins his own life and mission one thing had to happen- the Death of John the Baptist. John, we know, was the last of the Prophets and his main mission was to make sure people were finally ready for the King  to come. Jesus, therefore, couldn't start until the paths were made straight.

     Jesus mission on earth is the great light that has appeared in the darkness. In…
