When it's hard to Pray, Prayer the Hardest

When it's hard to Pray; Pray the Hardest
 
 
 
Monday. Monday wasn't the best day for me. The day went slow, and loooong and I just wasn't feeling it. It wasn't the greatest day. It was a typical Monday, in which I wasn't looking forward to. From the moment I woke up to the time I got home I wanted Monday to be over. I found it really hard to find God, and feel is presences, maybe thats why I had a tough day. Nothing special happened.... until the end of the day...
 
On one of my many prayer tables I have three rocks. They each have saying on them. one says, "Faith" another says, "believe" and the other " Hope." About a year ago, I had lost my "Faith" Rock and It was no where to be found. I looked for a week, and then accepted the thought I had lost it and wasn't going to find it. I was going to buy a new one, but I never did.
These are what the stones look like
 
 
Then, one Monday ( This past Monday) before I went to bed, I was looking for something, and then out of the blue, I had found, " Faith" I had found the stone in which I had lost. It was really strange because I had cleaned that drawer out many times, and I could swear it wasn't there. But That Monday, I found it, and I put it in my jeans pocket.
 
So, from now on, I don't keep it on my prayer table, I keep it my pocket. Cause when I have low Faith, or I find it hard to find God, I hold the stone in my hand, and remember that God is always with me, and will always be there for me.
 
So, The purpose of this story, was to say have Faith. When times are tough, and things aren't going to well, all I have to say is Pray. I know times will be hard to find time to Pray, or to bend our knee and Pray to God, but we MUST PRAY! We must talk to God, so that our life can continue on the Road of God!
 
Always Pray; Pray always. Jesus is with us all, and will never abandon us.
 
 
Lord Jesus,
Come and be with us.
We know O Lord that you will never abandon us,
You are always with us.
Lord, our creator,
 we ask that you send
 your spirit
upon us.
That we may be filled with
Faith,
Obedience to you,
Love,
Joy,
and
The spirit of Turth.
 
 
We ask that you never leave us,
and show your self to us,
when it's hardest to pray.
Call us into the motion of prayer
and
bend out knee to be able to talk to you,
and confess with our tongue,
 our sins, and to proclaim that you are God!
 
O LORD, COME UNTO MY AID
AND PROTECT ME FROM THE EVIL ONE!
 
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 …
