The Holy Way

Posted: 12/10/18 | by | Category: Advent, Reflections, Spiritual Common Sense, Uncategorized

God had spoken. The prophets had listened and shared this Good News with the people of God. Some ears heard, others were distracted and still some ears ignored our Lord. Hearts and minds yearned for that promised moment when the expected Lord would appear among them. They knew He would be born in the stockContinue Reading »

Christ our King

Posted: 11/19/18 | by | Category: Reflections, Spiritual Common Sense, Uncategorized

God so loved the world that He sent forth His only begotten Son—to preach and teach, to heal and renew, and to die and rise in fulfillment of the ancient Scriptures. The Risen Christ transformed the history of humanity, and the whole world. Let there be no doubt. No great king, emperor or ruler hasContinue Reading »

Faith in expectation

Posted: 11/15/18 | by | Category: Reflections

When is our Lord coming? How will we know? Jesus was asked similar questions and answered, “But of that day or hour, no one knows, neither, the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.” We cannot know WHEN our Creator will actually bring the constant unfolding of human history to its finalContinue Reading »

Rich in faith, poverty of heart

For those of our church community who are among our young people, pay attention to the world around you. Older adults by the hundreds, if not thousands can confirm what I am about to say. This world from day one tells us we need a fancy style of clothes, a new and expensive sports carContinue Reading »

Poverty of heart

Sometimes we watch or listen to the news. Week after week we hear about hatred, war, oppression, murder, rape, robbery, abuse of children, women, elders, even animals. This is one major reason I find no need to sit in front of a so called t.v. box and listen about many ways in which men, womenContinue Reading »
