L is for Life

L is indeed for Life

Isn't life a wonderful thing. Life is a wonderful gift given from heaven above. Life is amazing. The ability for us to be able to talk, share in Joy and sorrow, To live the happy and sad, to breath in and out it all a wonderful gift from God.


God gave us this wonderful thing to live. He gave us some ups and downs, cause without them we wouldn't be living.... (Get it?) God gave us these different challenges to face, to simply test our Faith and Trust in him. I have always liked the image of you walking down a tunnel. You started at one end, and working to the other, and on the way, there are things you have to get over to continue your path... 


God gave us the breath of life so that we might live. He breathed into our lungs life. He gave us this precious and most valuable thing called life. And in our life we are to grow. We are to grow in the Love, Faith and Trust of and in God. 


Though we may experience hardships on the way, God's fountain of Mercy never runs Out. He is there to forgive us, and to help us on the way. For all these things form us to be the person God intended us to be. I hate it when one person  says how another person has it easier than they do or they don't have as many struggles. Everyone has their own struggles. Whether it's noticeable or not. Nobody doesn't have struggles. WE all go through them. But we all experience them differently to learn different lessons. 

So why should we judge? 


Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass...it's learning to dance in the rain.

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…
