My Word For 2013

This year for 2013 I will be participating in the One Word 365! instead of me trying to explain it, I will just simply copy and paste it form there website cause I can't put it in any better words than what she has already.

Forget New Year’s Resolutions. Scrap that long list of goals you won’t remember three weeks from now anyway. Choose just one word.
One word that sums up who you want to be or how you want to live. One word that you can focus on every day, all year long.
It will take intentionality and commitment, but if you let it, your word will shape you and your year. It will guide your decisions and help you grow.
Discover the big impact one word can make.
One word. 
365 days. 
A changed life.

I've never been big on New Year Resolutions. It just didn't seem to ever fit me. Then I found out about this and I was amazed. And after all it is very easy to break one cause it really isn't official it's just setting ourselves a new goal.

For this, I had to think all day, and be sure the word I wanted, was the right word. I came up with a word, but I didn't think much of it. Then I decided to make a list of words that could be a possible choice and I summed it down to two. And I just sat on those two words for a good hour.

 The word I have chosen, that God has revealed to me is : FAITH

Now you may be wondering why I chose Faith. I had first thought of Faith. But I really didn't think I would choose it. But at the end I did. I chose Faith because I thought there was room for me to grow in my Faith. There is room for me to learn more and more about my Faith and Religion. 

Faith has brought us all here to blog together. To make a community that comes together to share the Good News! We have all started blogging because we had a calling to share the Good News! So it is by Faith that we are all here. 

Hebrews 11 the title is " By Faith" ( at least in my bible) and the writer reveals to us, what happened because of Faith. Because of my Faith, I go and worship my God; The Lord Jesus. By Faith I Pray. 

Prayer is a way of showing our faith. It is the way in which we can contact with God, without being forced to. It is out of our Faith that we can bend a knee and pray to our bountiful God. Prayer is a sweet and beautiful talk between us and God.

So, one of the many things I will be doing to grow in my Faith this new year is doing the 365 challenge. I'm reading the bible in 365 days. It is "hosted" by I Strongly Suggest that you participate as well. I know that tomorrow I will be starting my Journey through the bible.

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 …
