Halloween

Today, as we all know, is the day of Hallows eve or more commonly named; Halloween. The day in which children go door to door, asking for free candy. The dress up, for the fun of dressing up, they enjoy the company of others, and they defiantly can't wait till they dig in to the deliciousness of there sweet candy.

The costumes came from the people who would go door to door, offering prayers for their loved ones that have passed and then in return they would simply get some candy, and while they did this they dressed up. It then became something that happened every year. It soon became a yearly tradition. kids would want to dress up and ask for candy. As time passed, it became this festival and party it is today. It is now a "Holiday" where we lef tthe prayer and just go for candy. I guess because in the medevil traditions you were forced to be Christian. But as democracy developed you could be whatever religion you wanted.

Now, I for sure, will go out this year. But not in search for candy, but for search of canned food.



We Scare Hunger. Formerly known as Halloween For Hunger. Takes place on October 31st, 2012, and is made possible in Canada by Campbell's. Hunger is a daily reality for millions of people, even in your own backyard. This Halloween do something about it. Be a hero and help hunger disappear.



 All the food banks here in Winnipeg are running out of food. Even our biggest food band; Winnipeg Harvest. So, I will be doing, "We Scare Hunger' Hosted  by Free The Children. One of there campaigns within all of Cananda is on Halloween. This is where you go to house to house collecting canned or non-perishable food, for food banks.

I really support this. And So today, I am thankful for food. I am happy, and thankful I am able to have a Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner, with snacks in between. I Thank God for all the food I enjoy and eat to keep me well, and alive.



Thank you God,
Thank You for this Halloween day.
I ask that you help me this day, and always help me everyday.
I ask you keep all the children safe,
as they go house to house searching for candy.
 
Lord, I pray for those children, on the East coast of the USA,
That they are safe and will be proteced by you always.
May you bless them, and help them in this time of storms and earthqukes.
 
May You send an out pour of your spirit, that all may find hope in you   truly know who you are, and that they will have FAITH in you!
 
 
                                    AMEN

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…
