Christ: His Coming Our teaching

"He said to me, 
' You are my so today I become YOUR Father.' " 

Psalm 2: 7

Today, for me is a lazy day. Teaching today has been cancelled because of a "Blizzard." Well, there barley is snow blowing, There is a lot of snow blowing and there is a lot of wind and it's chilled out. But anyways, they had cancelled it. Today was suppose to be the first day back form break. But in my head through this whole thing i was repeating what God had said to Abraham " For the sake of ten I will not destroy it"   "For the Sake of One I will not cancel it!" "Personally I think if there is a brave soul to come out and be determined to learn, I say teach them.

But thats besides the point. 

Jesus came into the world to teach us how to live. He gave us the perfect example of how to Love. He gave us the spirit of truth, and humility. He came and showed us how the father wants us to live. 

He came and guided us on this path called life. He gave us the right direction to follow. He came and did what he wanted us to do in our lives. 

Nothing else that God had done worked with the world. 

  • The Flood, well I mean it wiped out everyone, but then evil was still in the world.  He made  a promise not to send that again. 
  • He sent countless prophets to come and teach us about the coming of Jesus.
  • He save countless people from Egypt
  • He sent his Son. Which was probably good for that time. Jesus is to come again, but that is most likely when things are SOOO bad he can't fix them. 
God tries everything that anything. But regardless of all those evil ones, he will not destroy the world if there is only 1 righteous person. If it comes to that, he will probably take the righteous one out of the world, and into his kingdom and then destroy the world. ( just like he did with Sodom.) 

Getting back to things as an example. The first thing Jesus did was got baptized before he started his ministry. He gave us the example of Going into the waters to receive God. To become his son. To become his daughter.


I'm sure as you and I know that the day you and I were baptized on the Original Sin was taken away from us. And to that, any sin that happened after baptism was our fault. But it's a good thing that we are called to Confession, to confess our sins.

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 …
