F is for Faith

F is indeed for Faith


Faith changes everything.

Faith is the belief in what you don't see. We have Faith in God. We do not see him, and yet we believe he is their. We believe that God will be their, and help us when we need. We believe their is a God and that God came to earth.

TO have faith that means we have to know something is there. To know that the unseen is their. WE have to know that person! We have to seek to know God, to have Faith in God. It isn't knowing about God but knowing who he is.

Well knowing about him, would ruin the secret of the Lord and his plan. Knowing  about God, wouldn't be right. It would be like naming God. It would mean we have power over God, so we don't have a name for him, just God. (But such a powerful name too)


But wait, having Faith and Knowing him means we have to trust him also right?


Indeed It Does!

We must trust God! Trusting in him is essential to our Faith. For without trust, we can not know Faith and without Faith we cannot know trust. And without either we can not know God. God is the one whom we place our trust. We trust that he will be their, we trust that we will look after us. Why? Because we know that he will, by our knowledge of knowing him through Faith.

It's a big circle of Faith to knowledge to Trust back to Faith. But this knowledge isn't the type we have from school, it's from praying and having Faith in God. But how can I have knowledge? If I don't  pray?  Well it's the Faith that we have. The Faith that he will supply for us.

The Faith we have in God isn't the 'Believing that' but 'believing in' For example I can believe that  their is life on another planet. Whereas I can believe in God the Father almighty.

Just like during the Apostles Creed, we profess we Believe IN God and not believe THAT. But we believe in life eternal. The Apostles Creed is Our Faith wrapped up into one prayer.

Thus leaving Faith to being: Having knowledge to trust in what we do not see. 

So In a nut shell, Having Faith is to know God, not knowing about him, but know who he is. This leading into having Trust in God that he will take care of us. Leading us back to having Faith, that God the one whom we know will take care of us; will catch us when we fall.

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 …
