Five Minute Friday- Story


     History is made up of stories, facts and fiction. Stories that have been passed down from generation to generation. Filled with the intense adventure of heroic people and maybe not so heroic people making today what it is. 

     I always love hearing stories from my Grandparents about their life, and their amazing journey to Canada from Portugal. It makes our family grow in Love, and in trust. Even though my Grandpa tells the same story over and over, I listen closely, it's so interesting listening to the story over and over, and possibly change a little every time. 

Just like the bible....

    The Bible is a great big book of stories that have been passed down from generation to generation. Through the years the parents tell, and the children listen, possibly changing it each time or leaving something out due to the inconstant memory. Until someone was smart enough to write it down. And after many translations (at times very bad) we have the wonderful library of the Word of God. 

Let us share the stories we have been told. May we be inspired by the word of God, to preach the stories of Jesus Christ, and all that is written in the Bible to the world. May we continue to grow in the Love of a Family, through the grace of God!

  1. Thanks for sharing. The Word of God is the best story we can know :).

    1. Yes it is! Thanks for stopping by!

  2. It's a wonderful blessing to sit and listen to our parents and grandparents tell stories of older days. And it's a blessing to them for us to listen with love! I am reminded of how my Granny would tell the same story over and over and every time it was different! :)

    Have enjoyed reading different perspectives on 5 Minute "Story"...everyone has a different story to tell!

    Blessings, and a weekend of joy Brian!

    1. It is very unique going around and reading what others have come up with. Seeing the different styles and getting other peoples point of view!

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 …
