Pentecost – The Holy Spirit calls us back to our true identity as children of God the Father, members of the Body of Christ, and temples of the Holy Spirit. Don’t just receive Communion; cherish Him and hold tight to the Holy Spirit and the Sacred Heart.
Easter 6 – Today I have to tell my parishioners that my journey with them will end in August, when I will begin a new journey with the three parishes in Antigo as their pastor. I am grateful for the blessings of this assignment. I bow to the Jesus in you.
Easter 5 – You are chosen and precious and have a place prepared for you in Heaven. Holy Mother Church will birth you into eternal life and Jesus will be there to catch you. Jesus has a place prepared for you; do you have a place prepared for Jesus?
Ordinary 6 – Accept your Father’s lordship by following His commandments. Make Sunday Mass a priority in your life. Accept your Father’s help by nurturing the Holy Spirit with daily prayer. We must all face the music. Do you hear the people sing?
Pentecost – To be a thriving parish we have to give up trying so hard — and focus on loving Jesus and serving Jesus. We need to be the kind of friends and spouses that support one another in living the faith. The Spirit will do great things with us.
Easter 5 – Before God creates a new heaven and a new earth, He needs to create a new heart and a new mind in you. This is why God has sent his Spirit into our hearts. Every time we cooperate with the Spirit we are choosing Heaven for us and for all.
Ordinary 31 + TEC Anniversary – God commands us to love Him because He made us to love and be loved. But it’s humanly impossible! So God has sent the Holy Spirit into your heart. Listen to the Holy Spirit. He will transform you into God’s likeness.
All Saints – Heaven is full of light, joy, peace… and free of death, evil, and sin. There’s only one requirement to get in: you have to be completely free of sin. Let God’s love fill your heart and life and — voilà! You are already in heaven.
Pentecost – God’s Spirit fills us with love, shapes us in His image, and restores us to Communion with one other. Ask to be filled with the Holy Spirit. Pray for others in the Spirit. The gift of the Spirit grows to the degree that we give it away.
Ascension – Jesus returns to the spiritual realm where he came from. He is present to us through the Spirit that dwells in our hearts. May the eyes of your heart be enlightened so you can live your daily life from Jesus’ eternal perspective.
