Whats Holding You Together?

 This past summer I was a leader for the bible camp at my church. I also had taken photos during some of the other stations. One station, was the Snack Station that I went and took photos, debatably it was the messiest day in that station. They were creating little chapels out of graham crackers and Marshmallow fluff acting as the adhesive for holding it together. Sadly, some kids broke their crackers, and others ate theirs before they were finished.

      He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.

Colossians 1:17

      In our precious and delicate lives Jesus is the Marshmallow fluff that holds us together. He is the unity of all Christians and Catholics- The person we turn to for strength, help, and support. We count, that with our delicate lives, that Jesus will hold us up to be the chapel that stands firmly on the rock of Faith. 

     We are the church. It is the times when we feel extra-delicate, and we are rushed that we rely on Jesus more. We rely on strength, guidance, support, and we trust that we will not fall. Unlike the messy Marshmallow Fluff, Jesus will not let us fall! He will always help us- even when we think he's not.

     Everyday and every moment of life we have the adhesive that holds us together. As a family, friends, and a community. We have the Lord Jesus. The ultimate and great king, savior that we all have in common. We are the church! We live and move, and in everything we do, we are suppose to do for the glory of God. (1 Corinthians 10:31) God is the ultimate and wonderful creator, who will bring us back together when we have crumbled like a cookie.

     If we look literally, Laminin literally holds everything together in us. It is what holds our skin together. I won't ruin the surprise. But I want you to search the images of Laminin and see what actually is holding us together. Search it now, then continue reading this post.


     It is the cross of Jesus. Simply amazing,  God holds us together and keeps us on track. IT is through the death of Christ that we are held together as a person, and in spirituality.  God loves us and holds everything together, even when we think it's falling apart.  So let us realize that the billions of cells in our body, are being hold together by a cross.

Do You rely on Jesus?

Does Jesus Hold You Up?


  1. Hi Mike! I can totally see those cracker and fluff chapels. What a great idea! And how wonderful that you could reflect on that simple craft, and see how God works in our lives. He is the glue that holds me together, no question.

    Great insight today :)

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 …
