Today I am Thankful For: School 

I woke up this morning, with sadness that I have to go to school. I surely enjoyed my 3 day weekend. (Thanks goes to Thanksgiving) I surely still am full from, my turkey feast yesterday, and a nice dinner at my Grandmas on Saturday. I do, miss the company and time that we got, to sit down, and enjoy a day, to be thankful for so much!

This isn't how it looked this morning
I slept, in this morning, because I really don't want to go. But I had to, and I looked out the window, to find that it had snowed all night. FUN! I love the snow, but that just added another negative thing to my day. I don't like the cold; I like the snow, but not the cold.

But then I started to think, "What right now can I be thankful for?"

 I stopped and reflected

I thought

And I turned the negative into positive, I said


As much as i am not a fan, I HAVE to be THANKFUL for it.I get a chance to go to school, a place to learn, and to develop many new skills. Whereas many kids don't get to, or they are not in a very good school.

So, Today I am Thankful for being given the chance to go to school, a Good school, with GREAT teachers and GREAT classmates. I am given the chance to learn with awesome people, and a chance to deevelope what i need to do good in life.

I know many kids aren't able to go, and so this I am thankful. I know many kids can't afford it and I know I am lucky enough to be able to go. Some countries don't even have a school, and it must hurt them when I say, " I hate school" my eyes were opened, and I am now truly thankful for school... No matter how much homework I get...

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 …
