S is for Service

S is indeed for Service

Many people are at our service. Like the police, ambulance, firefighters... People who work at stores, the cable people, and basically anyone at any place that sells something is their ready to answer our questions, to make sure we are satisfied.

We to are called to serve. To serve one another. If it's to teach, write, proclaim, help those less fortunate. we are all called to serve one another... regardless of our title of job we are called to serve the poorest of the poor.

We are to be at the service of one another. We are called to humble our selves, take off the jacket of our pride and serve others. We are called to help one another in every shape or form that we most possibly can.

Everyone thought, that the Messiah would come and be a great king like David. They didn't expect a king that would serve. They wanted a king that would lead them to greatness... But the thing is... Jesus will bring them to greatness. Jesus came to serve and not to be served.

 'A servant is not greater than his master.'
John 15:20

Jesus came to be  with the poorest of the poor. He came to be with those whom people cased out, whom people did not want to be with. He went and healed the lepers. HE went and called tax collectors and fishermen to be his dream team.

Our Lord, Our Master, washed the feet of his disciples. He got down and showed us that we must also serve one another... regardless if your the Son Of God. We must serve as we are called to serve everyone and anytime in our daily life.



We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us.
 If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; 
7 if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; 
if it is to encourage, then give encouragement;
 if it is giving, then give generously;
 if it is to lead, do it diligently;
 if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully.

Romans 12: 6-8

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 …
