Making Ordinary Time a Little Less Ordinary Announcement

      I find that during the months of Ordinary time my Faith can become a little 'dull' because really  there isn't the exciting and faith rising events happening. Quite frankly, it seems to be a time where nothing special takes place, people don't have the same up-beet attitude like they did during Christmas and Easter, and it seems like the time in between becomes just another routine added into my life.

     I do believe that Christmas and Easter should be filled with a certain eagerness ( Thats the point. We are waiting for either the birth or resurrection of Christ)  But that shouldn't mean the time in between (Ordinary time) should just be the same boring old stuff...right?

     Well with this series I want to offer many things that can help make this Ordinary time a little less ordinary. I want to help lift the 'couch-potato' faith and give it a new eagerness, a new yearning  for Christ during Ordinary time. I want to get rid of this 'routine' feeling to Ordinary Time, and make it become an Extraordinary time.

     It will be a series to lift your faith a little higher. That is, It will make this Ordinary time a little more faith filled. Every Tuesday, starting on August 5th, a new post will be posted to help make your Ordinary time a little less ordinary.

     If you bookmark this post, then you will be able to find a link to the new post every day! So make sure you come back and visit this page! Their will be links to the next and previous post on each blog post to make everything nice and easy to keep track of!

     See you this Tuesday!

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…
