Ordinary 34 (Christ the King) Everything was created by God. But the Enemy tricked us into refusing to serve God. Jesus comes to set us free from sin and death. When we genuflect at Mass, we are saying: I put my life at the service of the true King.
Ordinary 33 – God’s fire is already burning in our lives. Avoid the cross and you build up fuel for a terrifying judgement. Embrace the cross and His fires will heal and purify you. Every day is judgement day. Stick close to Jesus and you will be fine.
Ordinary 32 – Do you believe in the Resurrection? This belief gave the Jews courage in persecution. It strengthened Christians in Rome and Japan. It changed Fr. John Tourangeau’s life. Belief in the resurrection helps us serve God faithfully today.
Ordinary 31 – Jesus desires friendship with you. Sometimes we feel unworthy or simply uninterested in being a friend and follower of Jesus. Jesus will welcome anyone willing to open their heart to him. Knock knock…
All Souls – We live in a beautiful world created by our Heavenly Father. Though sin has made it a wilderness of death, Jesus comes to suffer and die for us. We walk with each other and Jesus walks with us. Take his hand and he will lead you home!
All Saints – We all want to go to Heaven. There’s no sin, death, or bullies. And that’s the problem: We can’t track any sins into heaven: no lies, gossip, or bullying. How will any of us get in?!! The blood of Jesus can clean anything!
Ordinary 30 – St. Paul was a great Pharisee. But then he was knocked off his horse and repented like the tax collector. He started a relationship with Jesus and was transformed into a mature disciple. Is your life being poured out like a libation?
Ordinary 29 – Do you sometimes feel broken? Whatever you are struggling with, God sees you, and knows you, and loves you. Sometimes we need to carry Broken Mary to realize who is carrying us. Have faith in God’s love for you!
Ordinary 28 – Yes, God still works miracles. But often times the healing we need is for problems we didn’t know we had. Hardships are opportunities to grow in love and relationship, and to become more grateful. St. John Henry Newman, Pray for us!
Ordinary 27 – How much faith do we need? Just enough to let God handle things! Faith grows when we face hardships. Write down the messages God has given you. All you have to do is be a faithful servant and God will take care of the rest.
