Heaven Breaking In

God's heart desires that all would come to know Him, and as we pray psalm 67, asking God to let his face shine upon us, the grace is granted for us to become the revelation of God's love to those around us...heaven meets earth and signs and wonders abound.

Walking on Water

The image of Peter walking on water is an image of the supernatural life Jesus both calls us to, and empowers us to live. Following the example of Jesus, who said "a son can not do anything on his own, but only what he sees his father doing" (Jn 5:19), we consider how pursuing and receiving the revelation of the Father's will, leads us to live moment to moment, the supernatural life...walking on the water with God.

Being Attentive to the Prophet Message

Having traveled up Mt. Tabor with Jesus, Peter witness the amazing transfiguration of Jesus, the radiant manifestation of the divinity of Christ. He, along with James & John, heard God the Father say, "this is my beloved son, with whom I am well pleased; listen to him." Years later, Peter would write about how being attentive to God's Word (the prophetic message) allows the morning star (Jesus) to rise in our hearts...leading to our continual transformation in Christ.

Evil, Predestination, Heaven & Listening to God

In St. Paul's Letter to the Romans, we read "we know that all things work for good for those who love God, who are called according to his purpose" and that "those he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son." We look into these words now, guided by the Church, to further understand how we deal with the problem of evil, understand predestination, and seek to listen to God and live even now the Kingdom Life, bringing God's amazing love to all around us!

Putting it Together

In the famous parable of The Sower, Jesus describes four responses to His gospel. In the parable, Jesus is the sower and the seeds are His words.

The Beautiful Way to See Life

Hope & Courage

After calling the 12 Apostles to himself, Jesus sent them out to preach, letting them know quite clearly they would experience persecution. Nevertheless, Jesus told them to fear no one, for God cares intimately for them and us (knowing even the number of hairs on our heard.) In the midst of challenge, temptations to fear and anxiety, the apostles lived with hope and courage, the Lord invites us to the same freedom in the Spirit..

The Most Holy Eucharist & The Sacrifice of Jesus

A sacrament is a sign that points to something else, making present what it points to and thereby communicating the grace of the reality that it points to and makes present. In the gift of the Eucharist, we receive the gift of Jesus body and blood, the gift of Jesus himself who comes to give himself freely to us, as he gave himself freely for us on Calvary. Recognizing, revering and responding to this reality sets souls on fire with divine love!

The Draw of the Father

When Jesus said, "for God so loved the world that He sent His only begotten Son" He revealed that God the Father longs, out of magnificent love, to draw the world into His embrace. God is in love with His creation and desires to conquer sin, darkness and separation one soul at a time. Will we enjoy His embrace? Will we share His desire?
