The Transfiguration of Christ

     What are marvelous celebration we celebrate today! The wonderful and exciting Transfiguration of Christ! Christ shinning brighter than the sun, changed into the appearance of an angel, and started talking with the most important people of those days: Moses and Elijah.

     Bringing with him Peter, James and John, Jesus heads up the Mountain, and is transfigured into himself-his divine self. He traveled up the mountain, with the three main disciples, to show them who he really is. Up to this point everyone is still confused. And so Jesus shows himself as whom he was in Heaven-the King of Kings. Showing also, that he is the fulfillment of the Law. That he is God's Son, whom was sent to bring those whom love him home.

     Moses and Elijah, seated to his right and to his left. Both divine, with Jesus shinning brighter than day. Showing the connection, between past and present. Fulfilling what he said, That he came here to fulfill the law not abolish it.

     Showing, then that Jesus connects the past to the present day. He built a bridge, between the many confusions, and misunderstandings between the people. And so he goes into his trueness, and reveals himself as God.

So on this feast of the Transfiguration of Christ, let us also change with Christ. Let us have the appearance of our divinity- Of what we have stored up in heaven. Christ, came and revealed himself to us, but all the while we must be ready and me awake, and not sleep.

Let us go with Peter, James, and John, and watch Jesus in his true divinity

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…
