Are you worried the sun might not rise?

" From the rising of the sun to the place where it sets, 
the name of the Lord is to be praised.

Are you EVER worried that the sun might not rise in the morning? 




Doesn't that seem like something stupid to worry about? Wondering if the sun will ever rise again in the morning? We know it will. We always know that the sun will come up the next morning. But how are we so sure? Is it because we see it every morning ever  since we were kids, so we don't think about it or is it because we don't have to rise it, we know it just happens and no matter what happens on earth it will always rise? 

But what if it didn't? 

What if the sun never rises in the morning ever again? We wouldn't have any light. We would be in complete darkness for ever. Imagine that. No crops to grow, NO solar panels would soak in light, We would have to use all electric lights, which wouldn't be the same. People would miss the sun. I know this because there was a few days here in Winnipeg where there wasn't and it was all over the news how people are depressed from not seeing the sun. 

The Sun is just one of those things we don't think about: But still brightens our day everyday. We wouldn't wake up to the sun shimmering in our eyes, we would run out of healthy food, and much more. But nevertheless life wouldn't be the same without the sun.

But this is all beyond what would happen.... Right? 


If we then, aren't worried about the sun coming up again, why then, do we worry God might not Love us anymore?  


Why do we worry that God will stop sending us his spirit?


Do we worry because we have sinned or done something he might not like? Well, the Sun still rises when ever something bad happens on earth. Bringing Hope and a new start. No matter what the sun still rises. And in the same way God, Our Creator, will always love us! No matter what happens to us God will always LOVE US! No matter what he will always send us his spirit. Why? Because he LOVES US! And you can NEVER break a bond of LOVE between a parent and his children.  

God will always love us! It's who he is! No matter what, It's his mission to take care of us, and he always will. Half of the time we forget about God in our day, but he's still there to bless everyday. And I'm pretty sure we would feel a HUGE difference if God ever left us ( Which would NEVER happen!) Every day we rise into a new day because of God!

God Is GREAT! 


Lord Our God,
We come to you with 
Humble and Willing Hearts.
We Thank You for Raising us to this 
BRAND NEW DAY!

Thank You Lord for Always 
being there.
Even when I may not know it. 
I ask that you open my eyes;
To be able to see your great love,
and Your GREAT presence in our daily lives!
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. …

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…
