Adopt a Bible Verse

     The bible is filled with wisdom and depending on current events in our lives certain bible verses will speak louder to you than they might have ever before. I know in many bibles they have a section, either at the front or at the very back, a list of different bible verses for different occasions. These are extremely useful  to help supply comfort and strength in different situations in life. 

     To Make Ordinary Time a Little Less Ordinary, I suggest you adopt a bible verse. If there is something in your life that means a lot to you, ( A goal, a discernment, ) give it a bible verse. Give it a bible verse that you will try to live by. For example, one of my favourite bible verses that I have adopted for my year is, " Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ."  (Galatians 1: 10) My life being so heavily involved in the church and certain judgements people have made have formed my decision to make this my adopted bible verse. 

     I personally have a few adopted bible verses. These are little reminders to me about Gods mission for me, and how I can always improve in my life. Adopting a bible verse as really helped me to grow in my faith and to exercise my Catholic call to Love my neighbour has myself.  I like to look has the bible verse has a director, a daily reminder from God. I memorized these bible verses and they normally flip through my thoughts multiple times a day.

    To make the Ordinary Time a Little Less Ordinary, I suggest to adopt a bible verse. Memorize the verse, and read it everyday. Not only will it give you strength throughout the day, but it will keep you focused on the task or goal that you have for yourself.

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 …
