Who is Jesus?

He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” – Matthew 16:15 Who do you say that Jesus is?  Who do you know Jesus to be? Not just His name but who He is.  I have related to Jesus in different ways throughout my spiritual journey. There are times when I have… Read More ›

Jesus Knows Our Hearts

“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father in heaven.” – Matthew 2:21 Many like to give lip service to being a follower of Christ. Many like looking good, too. The question we need to ask ourselves is… Read More ›

Waiting with Courage

It is a rainy day. We have had a lot of rainy days the past week or so. Today I saw a huge turtle walking around the other side of the lake. And there are a lot of ducks. Go figure. We left our quarantine and traveled the other day. A deacon’s wife had passed… Read More ›

Come, Holy Spirit

We Are Loved

I celebrated a birthday this week. My husband made me an awesome dinner. And my son and daughter-in-law brought their 2 children over. (Don’t worry. We practiced social distancing). They made me a big poster with letters to me and their drawings. And my eldest stepson and daughter-in-law and my 3 adult grandchildren and soon… Read More ›

For the one whom God sent speaks the words of God. He does not ration his gift of the Spirit. – John 3:34 “He does not ration his gift of the Spirit.” I love that. God does not “ration” the Spirit. God does not hold anything back. He gives us His all. He gives us… Read More ›

Jesus Calls Us

Jesus said to them, “Come, have breakfast.” And none of the disciples dared to ask him, “Who are you?” because they realized it was the Lord. – John 21:12 The more time we spend with Jesus, the more we recognize Him in our everyday life. Like any relationship we have, we can only know Jesus… Read More ›

Belonging to Jesus

He said to them, “You belong to what is below, I belong to what is above. You belong to this world, but I do not belong to this world.” – John 8:23 If we are only concerned about this world, this life, then are we not preparing for the life to come? Are we not… Read More ›

Listen to Him

While he was still speaking, behold, a bright cloud cast a shadow over them, then from the cloud came a voice that said, “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased; listen to him.”  – Matthew 17:5 This is my beloved Son. Listen to him. Early in our personal prayer life, we… Read More ›

Benedictine Home

I went to the Holy Name Monastery yesterday for a day with Benedictine Oblates. They meet 5 times a year on Sundays to discuss and learn and pray. This year we are studying Sr. Joan Chittister’s book on the Rule of St. Benedict. I had read it before but I am getting so much more… Read More ›
