The Bible

     Today, I am Thankful for.... The Bible.

I Love the Bible. I love reading it, I love being inspired by God to do his mission. I Love God, and I love reading what he wants me to know. I always find something new and exciting passages to read and to ponder upon onto make a blog Post.

I love finding my faith in the bible, and to truly understand what Jesus wants from us. It's always a unique way to see in the eyes of Jesus, and reading about his miracles and love for everyone that was put together for us, do that we might believe.

As, always I taught today -which you already know I LOVE- I usually am there helping, but today me and the other teacher decided that I would teach today. As you most likely have guessed I taught about The bible.

Thursday night, I started to plan my class. Well for my first "teaching" of Grade two, there was a lot of assuming what they know and what they don't and predictions of timing. I had a plan to teach the bible. How many books, the two main separations, the authors and why is it important.  I had made a small plan, but then realized that wouldn't be enough.... I left it till Friday and came back to it, and then I ended up having to much material. So I split it into two classes. I don't know how though, that I started off with the bible and then the second half being about Moses and the Ten Commandments.

I thought they knew what the holy spirit was, but I shouldn't assume anything, and that is what I must learn. I must also remember that it is just the beginning of a new year, so I must be the one to teach them everything, so I can go more into it near the end of the year.

The final thing we did in class, was a drawing craft. I turned off one set of lights, told them to close there eyes, listen to the bible reading, then draw what they imagined... I thought of this because well kids have a great imagination.The story was a simple one to start off with, it was simply the five loaves of bread and two fish.  One of them drew it in heaven, another drew it on a road, and yet another drew it on a flat ground. And only one of them drew the five loaves of bead and the two fish.

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…
