Lent 2 – Have you been falling asleep on your Lenten resolutions? Peter, James, and John were falling asleep at the Transfiguration. Abraham chased away the vultures of fear. If you want to win the big battle, you have to fight the daily battles.
Ordinary 23 – We need to get away from the crowd, experience Jesus’ love, and be opened to speaking His love to others. I suggest going to Confession and making time for daily prayer. Plug in to the power of God!
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.
What would you say if you had a direct line to God? God is really listening! We should be really talking to God, and really listening too. [AUDIO]
The Magi respond to God’s love with their own gifts of love. At Christmas we receive God’s gift of love; at Epiphany we give back our own gift of love. Let us open our treasures and give God the gift of almsgiving, prayer, and sacrifice. [AUDIO]
What are we watching for? Christians should be ready for the coming of Christ, not only at the end of the world but every day of our daily. Making time to pray every day will help you be more watchful. This Advent pray for a watchful heart. [AUDIO]
Jesus comes into our daily life and invites us, “Come to Me. I can satisfy you.” Only when we find God do we find True Love. We can also read this passage in another way. Through the eyes of the lonely Jesus says, “Give me a drink.” [AUDIO]
Moses and Elijah taught the people to listen to God. But now we only need one booth because Jesus is everything. Do you really believe that? Then start spending 10 minutes a day in prayer. Listen to Him and you will be transfigured. [AUDIO]
Most of us are in danger of believing in our own righteousness. St. Paul knows that he is nothing without God; all he has is a gift from God. Perhaps he spent a lot of time praying: “Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me a sinner.” [AUDIO]
