All Souls – We live in a beautiful world created by our Heavenly Father. Though sin has made it a wilderness of death, Jesus comes to suffer and die for us. We walk with each other and Jesus walks with us. Take his hand and he will lead you home!
Ordinary 18 – It’s never too early to plan your funeral. Jesus wants to share his inheritance with you. We won’t be able to take his hand if our hands are full of vanities, feuds, and earthly riches. What kind of legacy will you leave behind?
Easter 3 – Through the hands of priests, Jesus feeds us with Himself. He does this so we can be full of true life. You should be so full of Jesus that He’s coming out of your mouth! Ask Mother Mary to help you receive, nurture, and share God’s life.
Easter – There are signs of new life all around us. Where have you experienced death and hopelessness? God wants to give you new life right in your place of darkness. Practice dying, practice rising from the dead, and practice going to heaven.
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?
Ordinary 6 – We wouldn’t be so worried about pleasure, power, possessions or popularity if we believed in the Resurrection. We must use created things as much as they help us to fulfill our purpose, and rid ourselves of them so far as they hinder us.
Easter, Blizzard Sunday – Eyewitnesses saw the risen Jesus and it changed their lives forever. Where have you seen the Risen Jesus? How has He changed your life? People will believe in the Resurrection when they see the transformation in us.
Easter Sunday – The Resurrection of Jesus fulfills God’s promises from the past and it promises a glorious future. Belief in the Resurrection changes the way we see sacrifice, sufferings, and death. Do you believe in the Resurrection?
The early Church gathers around the Risen Lord and leads others to faith. Faith gives us a glimpse of our final destiny. We are like caterpillars preparing for a transformation into butterflies. Don’t worry: even your wounds are glorious. [AUDIO]
It’s never too late for Jesus. The whole world will know that Jesus is Lord when he returns on the last day to raise the dead. That’s what Christian funerals are all about. But you can experience the Resurrection now by inviting Jesus in. (2 Apr 2017)
