Thanks Giving :D

      Today is Thanksgiving. This is a day of  which we give all thanks to God for everything we have. On this special day we are called to the table of THANKSGIVING (AKA The Eucharist) We are called to take part in the Eucharist, or at least give thanks to God for him.

      We have A LOT to be thankful for! We have a lot more to be thankful for than we might think. EVERYTHING! Friends, family, A computer, blogger, God, books, pictures, cameras and much much more. I hope that during this weekend, you and your family can sit, and be thankful for each other as you eat your turkey feast ( or and other traditional meals) May God Bless You all and be with you on this GREAT day of thanks giving.

    It has really only been the past 2 thanksgivings that I have really realized what I have to be thankful for (My classroom, pen, pencil, computer) And So, I am ready to do a Challenge called, "Year Of Thanksgiving" So For (about) everyday of the year i will do a post about things I am thankful for. It will be about anything or anyone. I will include my devotionals based on what I am thankful for. Some Days it might be PRAYER about what i am thankful for and others it will be a blog post.


SO, The first thing I am thankful for is My Family. Here is the Prayer:


Almighty and ever living God, I thank you for everything you do for  me. 
I thank you for always helping me.
I thank you for my Family. 

I Thank you for the Love they give me;
When times are tough;
when times are easy.

I Thank you for their kindness;
That keeps me happy;
That keeps my going;
that helps me, and reminds me to be kind to.

I Thank you for their Patience;
It helps to be patient as well;
it makes things go well;
it gives me time to sort out things I need to do.

I Thank you for their Faith;
It reminds me to have faith when I loose it;
They remind me to pray;
They remind me to thank you for everything;
 they remind me to always think of you.

I Thank you for their understanding;
When I don't know, the explain;
When I am confused, they help me;
When I don't know what to do next they help me.


O gracious and  loving God, I thank you for my family,
and I ask that you send a blessing over them,
A blessing of protection, love, understanding and Joy.
A blessing of happiness, Love, and Faith.
A blessing of gratitude, wisdom, courage and Right Judgement.
A blessing of reverence,piety, Gentleness  Peace, and thankfulness.  

Thank You God For my Loving Family. 


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…
