Y is for You and Z is for Zeal

Y is indeed for You

Christ came and helped. He healed the lepers, made the blind see, raised people from death to life and so much more. Christ did the work of his father. He was there to do work. He came and did his thing... To preach. To Show. To show that their is one true God, who is the source of everything.

Jesus showed us the Fathers, love. He showed us the Love, of the Father. He showed how much God loves us and what he will do for each of us. He showed the Fathers forgiveness. He showed us how we must live, and how to be with others.

Then the work was given to his disciples. And the disciples did their work, converting Gentiles and Pagans. They spread the word of God. They continued the work of Jesus and brought it to all ends of the world.

Know it's your turn. Like a child, that wants to share what they learned at school, so we must share the Fathers message. We must be eager to tell.. No fear, Not being shy, Not worrying of the consequences. Just preach the word of God. For regardless what happens to us on earth we are building up our Love with God in Heaven.

Jesus is asking you to preach him. Not to be scared or worried, but to have trust in him. He wants you to be the next to carry his word for generations to come... Will you?

Z is indeed for Zeal

What is Zeal?

Zeal is to have a great desire to do something good.


I wish everyone in the world had Zeal. Then we would have no crime, we would have no violence, just the will of God. Wouldn't that be the dream world. But sadly, as it is, our world is not perfect. But we can fill it with the love of God.

Pope Francis has said that, But there is no true peace without truth! There cannot be true peace if everyone is his own criterion, if everyone can always claim exclusively his own rights, without at the same time caring for the good of others, of everyone..."

If everyone had a little Zeal in their heart to do something Good, then would all have this dream world. For this world needs peace. From the USA To Bangladesh to the Middle East we need peace. We need everyone not to want power. Not to want to be in charge. But has it is, everyone wants power. Everyone wants to be in charge. 

Zeal is a fun word to say isn't it? I find it to fun to say.. Zeal... 

I could say it all day long. 

I find it such a fun word to say. 

Only if the meaning would be has good has the word... I wish... I pray... 

And that concludes my April A-Z challenge. I certainly hope you enjoyed. A reflection post is coming Friday or Saturday.

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…
