We live in an age of where technology replaces everything. An age that makes us a whole lot lazier. An age in which we have everything do everything for us. How many people have the new Samsung s III phone? or an Ipad, Ipod, I could continue but the list would be to long.

I have always disliked texting. Yes it is convenient when you forgot something and you need to tell someone else. Yes it is convenient when your in and emergency. And Of course it is when you need to talk with someone.

No, That should not be our way of communication. Nor should social networking sites. What happened to calling someone on the phone and having a good conversation. Or writing a letter to someone back and forth. Before we, would expect something in the mail, because it's what happened. But now we are just HAPPY when we get a hand written letter by someone. Cause the times have changed.

Getting back into High school recently wan't that easy. Especially why you had to write a paragraph on the first day of school, and you realize your paragraph is all short forms of words. "ttyl" 'LOL' "BRB"

But there is one thing I Love about prayer. IT CAN NEVER GET REPLACED BY TECHNOLOGY. No matter what. They can not take away our prayer to God. Yes they might have an app for that... They have one for everything now. But they can never take away our personal prayer. God doesn't have a phone. He doesn't need one, he can do all of it and more without it.

Yes, our world may have robots, yes our world may be doomed with the overwhelming of competition of who has the better phone or Ipad/tablet. And Yes the world may replace everything with technology. But there are 3 things it can't.

  1. Gods Word
  3. God
Technology can do a lot, but God can do a lot more.

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. …

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…

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 …
