D is for: Disciple

D is indeed for Disciple

Isn't being a Disciple of Jesus awesome? God is truly wonderful and deserves all our praise and worship. God is the one true king, who many of the people rejected to see. Many people were blinded until the point of Jesus actually dying and then they saw he was the Lord.

Every year during Holy Week, I watch The Gospel of John. It certainly is my favorite movie to watch at that time of year. I particularly love the way they depict the life of Jesus. It's a master piece for sure. I really admire that. I certainly prefer The Gospel Of John then how THE BIBLE  (The Five part Series) depicted the life and crucifixion of our Lord.


Through out the whole life of Jesus we hear about his disciples. "His dream team" as I like to call them. He hand picked them himself. Jesus our Lord, called each of them to change their life, leave everything they do and follow him.


We today are called to be a disciple. A Disciple of our Lord. By picking up our cross, and following Jesus. We must leave everything we know and do and follow Jesus. For Jesus will lead the way. He will take care of us. He will help us along. HE WILL NOT LEAVE US!


Jesus our Lord, is the GREAT creator. He is the one true God, whom, by the power of the Holy Spirit, have called us all to be a disciple. We are all called.

We are called to serve God with an Open, and Humble heart, and to Go to the altar to worship him. Leave everything we know and what we do, and instead of catching fish, we will catch people.

  1. Interesting that you liked The Gospel of John better than the recent series The Bible. I decided not to watch the series, as often newer versions are a bit too "realistic" for me, and I don't like Hollywood images clouding my reading of the Bible. How about you?

    1. Thing I don't really like about these newer Holly Wood Versions is that they don't focus as much on the symbolism of the readings. They more focus on what the visual will look like.

      With the series The Bible, they had a big opportunity to change things. It's a topic not many people really know about. So they saw the opportunity to change things and they took it.

      Thanks for stopping by!

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…
