The Better Part

“There is need of only one thing. Mary has chosen the better part and it will not be taken from her.” – Luke 10:42 I have often been more Mary than Martha. Prayer time is a priority for me. Or at least it was. Since this pandemic thing took control of our lives, my prayer… Read More ›

Loving Our Neighbor

“The second is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” Mark 12:31 It is easy to understand the verse before this one – to love the Lord your God with all your heart. It is easy to do, too, I might add. God is so good…. Read More ›

Were Not Our Hearts Burning?

Then they said to each other, “Were not our hearts burning (within us) while he spoke to us on the way and opened the scriptures to us?” – Luke 24:32 “Were not our hearts burning?” Sometimes my heart burns when I hear Jesus’ voice. I hear Him in different ways. Maybe a word in a… Read More ›

The Gift of the Spirit

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 ›

Do We Believe?

Jesus said to him, “Have you come to believe because you have seen me?r Blessed are those who have not seen and have believed.” – John 20:29 Faith. Faith is a gift. A gift from God. We do not earn it. We receive it whether or not we deserve it. We may not have seen… Read More ›

The crowds preceding him and those following kept crying out and saying: “Hosanna to the Son of David; blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord; hosanna in the highest.” – Matthew 21:9 I wonder how Jesus felt when he heard those hosannas. He knew it would all change because he knew… 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 ›

Faith

The Lord replied, “If you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you would say to [this] mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it would obey you. (Luke 17:6) Faith. Jesus seems to be telling us that we only need a little bit of faith. The size of a mustard… Read More ›

Listen to Him

August 6, 2019 Then from the cloud came a voice that said, “This is my chosen Son; listen to him.” After the voice had spoken, Jesus was found alone. They fell silent and did not at that time tell anyone what they had seen. – Lk 9:35-36 Peter, James and John went up the mountain with… Read More ›

Courage and Truth

August 3, 2019 His disciples came and took away the corpse and buried him; and they went and told Jesus. (Mt 14:12) Ever faithful to his call, John the Baptist never hesitated in speaking the truth. He condemned Herod’s sin and lost his life.  Do we exhibit the same kind of courage in speaking out… Read More ›
