We all face days that overwhelm us. Sometimes we can feel like there is nothing left, and we have nothing else to give. It is at precisely these moments that we realize that it is the Lord who sustains us, upholds us, and guides us!

What are we afraid of? As we embrace our faith in Jesus Christ we have the power to confront our fears and engage our life for service in the world. Fear points out our weak spots so that we can call upon the Lord for the grace we need to live for God.

The Lord speaks in the Gospel of Luke about the suddenness of God's action in human affairs. The invitation is simple: be ready! Since we do not know when the Lord will call us from this life, we live each day as if it were the only one...thus living every day as a precious treasure from God.

Nov 10, 2019

As disciples of Jesus Christ, we anchor our hope in a simple fact: Christ has been raised from the dead. The Lord's triumph over sin and death fundamentally alters the universe and we have hope of eternal life. May the power of the resurrection direct every aspect of our lives!

Nov 8, 2019

Both St. Paul and the Psalmist show how we are able to accomplish great things through the power of the Holy Spirit of God working through us. May we take this message to heart and allow the Spirit to tackle the needs before us this day.

St. Paul reminds the Romans that in both living and dying we are the Lord's. We, too, owe everything we have to God...and how we face life, death and eternal life will reveal to others our desire to be disciples of Jesus Christ.

Nov 3, 2019

In the Gospel of Luke we see how Jesus initiates the encounter with Zaccheus (who looks ridiculous climbing a tree because he is so short) and invites this past sinner to become forever changed. Zaccheus swiftly accepts this invitation, inspiring us to accept God's invitation in our lives as well!

Do you want to be a saint? Saints are not passive persons parked on a cloud with a harp; saints are redeemed sinners who have hearts filled with the love of Christ who share that love with joy in Heaven. This is what God calls us to...this is what we are made for! Do you want to be a saint?

Prayer is crucial for our spiritual life, yet we discover in the Gospel today the power that results when our prayers are grounded in the humility that recognizes our own weaknesses and sins. May we fervently call upon the Lord in our daily prayer, asking the one who knows us through-and-through for what we need.

Jesus uses the weather to demonstrate how we use signs to understand our earthly lives, and then he switches this concept to our spiritual life. It begs a simple question: Are we looking for the signs of faith in our souls, and are we willing to make changes for the better?
