Jesus Loving Us Through a Storm

(0)
February 1, 2020

Then he asked them, “Why are you terrified? Do you not yet have faith?” The disciples were terrified. There was a major storm and they were afraid they would drown. They woke up Jesus, who had been sleeping in the boat and asked him if he cared that they might perish. They just did not… Read More ›

Good News

He said to them, “Go into the whole world and proclaim the gospel to every creature. – Mark 16:15 Today is the feast of Paul’s Conversion. He went from persecuting Christians to becoming one of Jesus’ greatest followers. The meaning of the word gospel is “good news.” I would call Paul’s conversion good news. I would… Read More ›

Sabbath Rest

“That is why the Son of Man is lord even of the sabbath.” – Mark 2:28 When I was a little girl, I remember that Sundays were for rest. And for family. I enjoyed them. We would go to church. Have a big dinner at home or at my grandparents’ house. Sometimes we went to the… Read More ›

First Reconciliation

Jesus heard this and said to them [that], “Those who are well do not need a physician,* but the sick do. I did not come to call the righteous but sinners.” – Mark 2:17 If Jesus loves us as we are, even when we are weak and sinful, then why can we not love ourselves? Why… Read More ›

Today’s gospel tells us how Jesus went to be alone and to pray and then chose the Twelve apostles. So I would have to think that if Jesus needs some alone time to… Read More ›

Who is in Charge?

Jesus looked at them and said, “For human beings this is impossible, but for God all things are possible.” – Mt 19:26 It is hard to let go. It is hard to trust in God and not worry. I am a worrier. I know I am not in charge of the universe, but still I… Read More ›

Blessed Are You Who Believe

“Blessed are you who believed that what was spoken to you  by the Lord would be fulfilled.” – Luke 1:45  I would like to think that I have the faith that Mary did. I would like to think that I believe like she believed. More often though, I think I am more like the man… Read More ›

Jesus in Our Midst

For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them. – Matthew 18:20 This verse is a well-known verse. I wonder if we are aware of it when meeting with others. Do we know that Jesus is with us when gathered in His name? There is… Read More ›

The Cross

August 9, 2019 Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Whoever wishes to come after me must deny himself, take up his cross, and follow me.” – Matthew 16:24 Every Easter, when I was a child, I would watch King of Kings, a movie about the life of Jesus. Every time I watched it, I would… Read More ›
