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 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.
13th Sunday – Jesus touched José, Greg, and Kyle through Confessions, daily Mass, and CYE. Sometimes we have to seek Jesus and take hold of his garments. At other times we need to stay put and wait for Jesus. Are you confident in Jesus’ love for you?
Lent 5 – Everything in the Old Covenant points to Jesus Christ. The New Covenant is less about following the law and more about falling in love. We can begin with fearful obedience but we must move to lovingly serving Our Father who loves us.
