Easter 3 – I dropped my “God will handle your problems” mug and the handle broke right off. Did God let me down? No! Our struggles and sufferings are a participation in the Paschal Mystery. You walked with Jesus and now he walks with you. God’s got this!
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!
Good Friday – God brings light out of darkness and the dead to life. This is the Paschal Mystery. Jesus knew that his Father would be with him every step of the way, his life had meaning, and his suffering had a purpose. Do I see my suffering this way?
Lent 5 – In the light of Palm Sunday, we see the true King and sinless judge who offers mercy. Jesus takes her place and pays the price for her sin. Jesus takes your place; Jesus pays your penalty. Will you live for the one who died for you?
The King who enters triumphally into Jerusalem has come to die for His people. We cannot separate the Resurrection from the Crucifixion. Everyone wants to celebrate Easter, but how many of us are willing to celebrate Good Friday? [AUDIO]
Jesus journeys from a mountain-top experience of God through the desert of temptation into the Promised Land. How does He survive? He never stops listening to God. Fill your heart with the Word of God. Keep listening to God’s Word. [AUDIO]
The Good Shepherd bears wounds from dying for his sheep. His sheep bear the same wounds. This unconditional loving becomes the cornerstone of our lives, and enables us to avoid dead-ends of selfishness. Follow the wounded shepherd. (26 Apr 2015)
