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.
Ordinary 26 – Where do we find friends in high places? We find them in the low places! When you open your heart to the poor, you open your heart to Our Lord. Look down and see — the King is at your door. Look down, don’t fright, he’s covered in sores.
Ordinary 25 – We are stewards, entrusted with God’s blessings. Why are you squandering God’s money on yourself and on this world? Even the dishonest steward learns that money isn’t everything. Use the gifts God has given you to bless others!
Ordinary 24 – Three lessons from our readings: 1) Remember whose you are, and where you and God have been together. 2) Expect God to lead you to something new and wonderful. 3) Listen to the voice of the Shepherd and let Him lead you.
Ordinary 23 – Marriage and discipleship both require a total gift of self. If you try to negotiate a lower ‘cost’, you’ll find these relationships constantly frustrating. If you’re not afraid to pay the price, the rewards are out of this world.
Ordinary 22 – Are we protecting and serving ourselves, or are we protecting and serving others? That is the question for police and priests, but also for doctors, lawyers, mothers and fathers — you and me. Humble yourself and God will exalt you.
Ordinary 21 – Now is the time to listen to Jesus’ voice and come home to the Father. If you want Jesus to open the doors of Heaven for you, open the door of your heart for Him. Communion is like an Altar Call: Can I get an Amen?
Ordinary 20 – Stop worrying about getting your health, family, and life in a stable place. Get your heart to a place where you can burn with love. In the midst of difficulties Jeremiah has found the place of the stable.
Assumption – King David brought the Ark to Jerusalem. When Jesus has defeated the enemies Sin and Death, and is seated on the Throne, he welcomes the new Ark into the Hoy City, the new Jerusalem. You too receive the Bread of Life; you too are an ark.
