Sunday Readings

Jesus said to his disciples:
"I have much more to tell you, but you cannot bear it now.

But when he comes, the Spirit of truth,
he will guide you to all truth.
John 16:12-15

      This weekend we celebrate the GREAT feast of the Most Holy Trinity. One but three persons- God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit. We are nothing without them and Mighty with all three. Through the love of the Father, and The Son was formed the holy Spirit. 

      Isn't it nice to know the truth, instead of being told lie after lie. We would ALL rather hear the truth than the sugar-coated truth. But yet, so many do, and so many listen to the sugary sweet, truth.We all prefer though, the sweetness of the convenient sugar coated lies, rather then the inconvenient Truth. Regardless of the lie or Truth we must seek the truth. But who is the truth and what is truth? 
     
When we pray, what does that mean? It means we know, and believe that God is there listening to every word that comes out from the tip of our tongue. To profess to the name of God is Truth. Truth comes from God, and is God. For with and in God there is no evil and the sugar coated truth is simply lies. The only thing that rests in God is the Truth. 
   

     Christ is Truth. Christ is the most powerful,ever living, Truth. He took off the robes of majesty. He took is own title of glory and highness in heaven and was conceived into this world to share the truth. The Truth of God and the Truth of all humanity. 

    The Truth of this world, is the name of Jesus. We are all pilgrims to this world. Proving our selves worthy of the kingdom of God. This is true because God gave us freewill to do his will or our own will. He came to remind us, what the truth is, and exactly why we are here on earth. 

     The Most Holy Trinity is truth. The Father gave everything he had to the Son. And The Son used everything he have for the Glory of God in heaven. Then gave what he had to his disciples. We will soon receive the truth. Nothing no more will be sugar coated.

 Everything will be Capital T Truth.

The capital T Truth is the Capital T Trinity.

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 …

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…
