3 Years of Pray To God Today!



"For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

Four years ago today, I started a new adventure in my life, a blogging one. An adventure that would use creativity, courage, intelligence, time and perseverance. On September first 2011 I had started my first blog, Life of Us an Saints. It was a small blog, (but big in my head!) I remember my very first blog post was on Pope John Paul the Second, and how I thought he would be a good saint. I quote myself from 2011, I promise I haven't changed anything, " I am thinking by 2015 he will be a saint... Who knows it could be earlier or later." He was canonized in 2014. Wow! If you search hard enough, I am sure your could find the post. 

This blog had gone through a name change after it's first 15 days. I wish I could remember the original name. Unfortunately, I never did a post welcoming people to the blog. However, Life of us and Saints lasted for one year, with a variety of different posts, but giving birth to the weekend posts-which I still do know. 

At that time, in 2012 I had begun writing lots about prayer, and our need for it. I also began loosing my attraction to the blog, so I decided it was time for something fresh, something new, something that would inspire me to do more. So on September 1st, 2012, Pray To God Today came to existence. Has you may imagine, my first post was indeed on prayer! Over the past 3 years that Pray To God Today has existed I have done 432 published posts, and have achieved 100,000 page views with 53 followes! Thank You so much! 

The past three years of Pray to God Today have, in my mind, been very successful. I have done weekend posts, reflections, prayer-posts, and much more! It has been very faith-growing researching and writing every single post. Some how, through the grace of God, I have been able to stick with blogging, and to help spread the word of God. 

The number one reason I had started blogging back in 2011 was that I wanted to share my faith- I wanted to teach others, help them, and maybe give them some inspiration. To this day I carry the same passion and wanting to continue to write posts. 

Today is a celebration of Gods work, not mine. It was because of him, that I decided to blog. It was because of Him that I had this passion to share my faith- everything originates from God. 

Thank you to every single person who has read this blog, followed it, stumbled upon it by accident and possibly stayed, or who have liked and shared my posts- it means so much! I am excited to see what the future holds! 

Have a good day,

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 …
