God's Family Love

Rooted in God's love, a familial reality, we are able to receive God's love (grace!) as we continue to make a gift of our lives to God in selfless love. Rooted and receiving, we are positioned to release God's love to the world around us. God's aim for this release is the transformation of our families, workplaces and everywhere the soles of our feet tread as the love of God's kingdom pours forth.

Nothing Will Be Impossible For God

The angel Gabriel assured Mary, "nothing will be impossible for God." This was not a one time proclamation, as Jesus himself reassured his disciples in Matthew 19 that "for God, all things are possible". He is Emmanual, God with us, and as we learn to live more intentionally in the presence of God with faith, wisdom and courage, we will see the impossible bow at the name of Jesus.

Preparing for New Life

In the Gospel of John we John the Baptist echoing the prophet Isaiah "make strait the way of the Lord". The Living God speaks these words anew to us in Advent, inviting us into a deeper, more ardent desire for God...a desire that God both gives us and blesses come Christmas with new life in His Holy Spirit.

God's Desire

From the lips of John the Baptist, and Jesus himself, we hear of being baptized in the Holy Spirit. Pope Benedict spoke of this gift as "being aware of what we have received in Baptism and Confirmation." On our Advent journey prepare, and ask for, an entirely new awareness of God's presence in our lives come Christmas. This is the gift God desires to give us...which points toward God's ultimate desire for us.

Fire & Oil

In the parable of the 10 virgins, Jesus teaches us to be ready for the final wedding described in the scriptures...the wedding feast of the Lamb. There, Jesus will receive his bride, the Church, into the eternal wedding feast of heaven. How are we to get ready? The lamps the 10 virgins carry in the parable are symbolic for us. By living in the fire of God's love (Hebrews 12:29), and nourishing our lives lived with God through the oil of devotion, we are made ready for Jesus, the bridegroom...

Leaning Into Your Destiny

God has a destiny for you. God chose you before the foundations of the world (Eph 1:4). You were made in God's image & likeness (Gen 1:26). To be a Christian is to be an "anointed one". To live in the anointing is to lean into your destiny...

Living in God's Presence

So often we are distracted from the gift of the present moment. So often our awareness of God's loving presence seems to slip away. Jesus tells us he is The Vine and we are the branches, called to bear fruit for God's glory. He wants to give us the grace to live every moment in His presence...

Divine Forgiveness & Freedom

As children of our merciful heavenly Father, Jesus teaches us that we too must extend his mercy and forgiveness to those who have wronged us. This can be extremely difficult, but by participating in His merciful love (His grace) we are able to forgive, which in turn sets us free from tangled webs of unforgiveness.

A Brother Who Sins

"The love of Christ impels us" St. Paul once wrote. It is the love of Jesus that can give us the courage to reach address the sin of another, not as their judge, but as their brother or sister in the Lord seeking to help them. Disciples share in the very life of Jesus and the Church continues his rescue mission...

The Mind of Christ & Denying Self

From the lofty heights of being called "blessed" and "the rock" upon which Jesus will build His Church, where hear Peter in today's gospel tumble to the depths of being called "Satan" and "a stumbling block" by Jesus. What led to such different responses from Jesus? Inspired thought vs. human thinking. The Lord implores us to deny ourselves for His sake and to not be conformed to this age, but transformed by the renewal of our minds.
