“I know him, because I am from him, and he sent me.” – John 7:29 Jesus says he knows the Father because he is from the Father. God is our Father. Do we know Him? Are we aware of His presence in our lives? Where has God sent us? How did we respond?  So many questions…. Read More ›

Jesus, Help Us See

Then he laid hands on his eyes a second time and he saw clearly; his sight was restored and he could see everything distinctly. – Mk 8:25 Sometimes we just don’t “see.” We don’t see Jesus’ presence in our lives. We don’t see how we affect others. We don’t see the blessings. We need to… Read More ›

Jesus Loving Us Through a Storm

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 ›

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 ›

Do We believe Jesus?

And this is the will of the one who sent me, that I should not lose anything of what he gave me, but that I should raise it [on] the last day.  – Jn 6:39 I have always found comfort in this verse. Jesus says he will not lose anything of what the Father gave… Read More ›

Talk to Jesus First

Today’s Gospel: Luke 6:12-19 Many times throughout the gospels, we read about Jesus taking some time away from the crowds to pray. 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 ›
