Q is for Quilt

Q is indeed for Quilt

A quilt is a nice collection of fabrics put together to either make a blanket, and or used for blinds , Over a window. A Quilt is like a mosaic. A collection of different colors, types and backgrounds. Some pieces of cloth may be polyester, or cotton, or silk. They all can be made woven or patched. Some may be made in USA or China. Other fabrics may be different colors, all differences making one beautiful quilt at the end.

We are like a quilt! All of us whom are believers in the Lord Jesus. We are one big quilt. We all come from different backgrounds, we are all different colored, made all differently from God to praise God. We all make on beautiful quilt, that can supply warmth, and shade. The warmth we supply is the warmth of Gods Love and we shade from the wicked ways of evil.


But sometimes, those pieces of fabric, get holes in them. They start falling apart; coming lose at the seem. Letting cold air in and letting sun through.

Thats when we lose faith, or we question God. We start getting 'holey' (Pun not intended) We start falling apart. And Then it relies on the support of others to hold us up. To keep the stitch from falling. We are to support others, in our faith to help them in everything they do, to help them have a strong seem.

Gods sews us with love and care. He is with us always, making sure we supply the warmth and shade that we are called to at all times!

  1. That really is beautiful! I love how intricate and complicated a quilt is before I piece it together. I love the interconnections I can create, so many different patters to chose from. And in the end, it's all beautiful from so many random things. Thank you for sending me a smile, and reminding me about my own quilts, I've lost the time to complete. :P One day, I'll get back to it.

  2. I understand your point; nice analogy with the quilts...now I want one. I'm not very good at sewing clothing like sweaters and such but I love quilts because they are so cozy.

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 …
