St.Mary Magdalene Feast Day

"Woman Why Are You Crying?" 

      Mary Magdalene is certainly a true believe. Definitely not scared of the struggles that might face her because of  following Christ. She lived out her Faith. She is the one to live out the Faith. To stay strong has a rock.  She wept leaning into the tomb, seeing her Lord taken. (For all she knew stolen) Strong Faith, made her feel deep sorrow.

     After being heeled from seven demons (Which now though to be a mental illness) she followed Jesus with his disciples. She knew that only someone from God could heal her, and so her Faith helped lead her.

     Mary stayed strong and experienced the journey Jesus took to the cross and after the cross. She was left weeping at the cross and proclaimed to the disciples that Jesus was alive.

     Saint Augustine called her the, "Apostle to the Apostles"  Mary was the one that Jesus entrusted to proclaim he was alive. She was the one to share the Faith, to share the most amazing thing that has ever happened.

At The Tomb

     We know that once Mary ran to the tomb on Sunday Morning, she was amazed and saw it was empty. She wept seeing the clothes rolled up, but was met up with two angels. Then was shaken by the voice of the 'gardener'  whom asked, "Women why are you crying"  and  " Whom are you looking for"  and Her sadness tears turns into the tears of joy


    We are called to live the Faith of Mary Magdalene. We are called to live out a fearless and Faithful life dedicated to Jesus. We  to are called to live like Mary, and follow Jesus through suffering- even if we must go through suffering as well. We are called-even though it's not Easter- to proclaim the risen Lord. The Lord whom we weep for and now is risen. The Lord whom we searched for and we have found

PRAYER TO SAINT MARY MAGDALENE:

Great Shepherd   
You  brought forth a woman of many sins, 
Who was going to be tormented by those around. 
But by your unmeasurable love you saved her from the evil of those around her. 
She was graced with being healed, and lived a life of Faith. 

Mary Magdalene we pray, 
that through your intercession, 
we may learn by your example
to stay strong in the Lord- Even though we have sinned against the Lord.
May you help us to stay, looking upon the cross of Christ,
So that we may rejoice when we see the empty tomb

St Mary Magdalene PRAY FOR US

AMEN

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…
