By Faith

"And without Faith it is Impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists."
Hebrews 11: 6

Faith. We all have it and well we all need it. Their is a piece in us that is always lacking Faith. Either in others ( trust) or simply not having Faith In God. No matter what, there will be that small piece with little Faith.


In this chapter we see that the writer of the Hebrews, takes us through history, and tells us everything that happens through Faith. It can be simply be summed up to one line thats from the passage above: Without Faith it is IMPOSSIBLE to please god, Because Anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists. If we look at the Hebrews 11: 4 Abel HAD to believe in God, HAD to have Faith in God, to give him his BEST sacrifice. 

It is by Faith that we must serve God. Cause if we don't have Faith in God, then what good is it to Pray? What good is it to go to Church? What good is it to preach the good news? We must have Faith. We must join our whole body, soul, and mind into the worshipping of God by Faith. Not because we want to; If must be because of our Faith in God.


God, understands when we do not have Faith. For after all, he did create us with is unfailing love in his own image. As one of my favourite quotes says, " When it's the hardest to Pray; Pray the hardest" It must be because we yearn for Faith.  

Now in the near future you can expect some more posts from Hebrews 11. And possible a post about Cain and Abel. We will call this a series. It will be the Hebrews 11 Series. It will probably only be the next 3 or 4 posts. I hope you enjoy


Lord My God
Thank You for everything I have!
May my Faith, and Love for you 
grow more and more for 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. …

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 …
