Easter 2 – We find peace, not when things change ‘out there’, but when our hearts change. We need to realize the depth of God’s love for us. The trials we are suffering are preparing us for new life. Let Jesus put his finger in your wounds.
Easter – Jesus offered his blood so that we could be freed from the pandemic of sin. Today he invites you to live a new life in Him. We need to die to our old selves and rise again every year, every week, and indeed, every day. Happy Easter!
Good Friday – We have been unfaithful to God, but God has remained faithful to us. Hanging on the cross, rejected by his people, abandoned by his friends, Jesus thirsts for you — for your faith and love. Come and receive living water from his open side.
Holy Thursday – Many Catholics see the Eucharist as basically the only presence of God in the world. This is not true. All of creation is a sacrament. Human beings especially reveal and embody God’s love. Ask Jesus to open your eyes to God’s love!
Palm Sunday – The earth shakes, the guards shake, the disciples’ faith is shaken. But Jesus stands firmly rooted in prayer. Make time to pray every day. When your world is shaken, have confidence that nothing can shake God’s love for you.
Lent 5 – Jesus weeps for you. He cares about what you are suffering, but he also has a better plan than the hopes and dreams that have died. Trust your friend Jesus. Start preparing now for that moment when Jesus will call you by name: Friend, Come Out!
Lent 4 – Jesus opens the eyes of the blind man. His family and the leaders refuse to see what he sees. Do you want to see as God sees? Then learn the four steps relational prayer: Acknowledge, Relate, Receive, Respond.

Lent 1 – How do we know it’s really God speaking to us? St Ignatius helps us understand that when we are moving towards God, the good spirit encourages us and the bad spirit tries to discourage us. If it’s Jesus calling, say Yes. Ignore the other voices.
