All Who do Good


     Don't you get such a great feeling once you do something good? Their can never be any good feeling in doing something wrong or evil. It always feels good to do something good for one another. Living out or mission on earth-being kind to as many people as possible- is what we need more and more of in this world today. 



    Do you know what this world needs more of? Peace, sharing, and kindness. Yes, it may be a 'fairy tale' dream -sadly- but it's something if we all try and pray we can make a difference. There is so much things we can be doing better in this world. But yet we quickly chose to go an not make peace, think of our selves instead of focusing on others. 

    By being good people and how we live our life if what grants us into Gods kingdom. We are ALL Gods people. Everyone. But just like the pope said, it's the Blood of Christ that we share that makes us 'first class' We who share in the Blood of Christ- In which we are stained by- is what connects us more with God. 

    The call to do good is what we are to do. We are meant to be good-regardless of religion or faith. Why do evil over good? The good has more benefits for us. Sadly, however, you become a 'hero' in Society when you do something good. Isn't that depressing? Where doing something good has drifted away from the norm? But on one level it is still the norm. It really depends where and who you are. 

    It's our Faith tells us to do good. So does common sense on one level-for majority of people. Everyone that is not bad is good. But what is good? What is good in our faith and within the world we live in? 


I would say, that in the shortest form doing good in our faith is simply following Christ in our lives. It can be summed up in that one sentence. We pray, we go to mass, we help others, avoiding sins,reading the bible regularly, following the Ten Commandments and keeping true to Gods words. Every time we do an of these we follow God. We chose his will over our will. We choose Good over bad. Christ wants us to follow him. He is desiring  that we pick up our cross-without shame- and follow him. 


Sadly, the world makes a big deal when someone does good because it has now become less of the norm and more of the unsuspected. Yes, I guess it's okay when someone jumps in a rushing river to save a child risking his own life. But, so many people become surprised when you offer to help or do something to help them-well for me that is. 


     When we work to do good we build our connection with God and we build up peace. How do we build peace? We build peace because once everyone starts doing good-being that not asking person that jumps in- it builds peace slowly but truly. 


     All that do good, can be saved by the love and spirit of God. All of strive to follow God can and will be saved. For we are stained by Christs blood and we are saved by following and receiving Christ.Jesus s wanting us to do good all the time! He waits for us to answer our call of greatness-to follow Christ.

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…
