This is something I'm not sure of and confused about. So about 3 years after my wife passed I started hanging around someone I met through work. We didn't work together but worked for the same…Continue

"Yes Cathy! The willingness to give it all up. I love it! And Abraham, wow! He was willing to do exactly what God was willing to do with Jesus! It's no wonder he was so blessed!"

"my interpretation is your 'willingness' to give it all up for the Lord!  Abraham was put to the ultimate test--to sacrifice his son--a truly excruiating decision--but Abraham proved to God his love for Him--and God provided a lamb!"

"Monica, sometimes I've found I need good advice. But, most advice is usually worth what you paid for it... "I will never leave you, nor forsake you" is one of my favorites!"

Give Up Everything?

Posted on September 4, 2013 at 6:20pm 2 Comments

This coming Sunday’s gospel ends with a statement that will shock you: “Anyone of you who does not renounce all his possessions cannot be my disciple.” Another translation says, “None of you can be my disciple unless you give up everything you have.” (Luke 14:33)

This is one of the hardest things we are asked to do. We work hard for years to get to a certain lifestyle. If we lose our job, we have friends praying for us so we don’t lose everything. Our culture dictates to us that we…

Take Up Your Cross

“If anyone wishes to come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me. For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it.” Luke 9:23-24

 

This is a very tall order. In fact…

Happy Father's Day everyone! I hope you were able to enjoy the day with your families.

The Mass readings for Father's Day were perfect. In the first reading, David gets a message from God through the prophet Nathan for taking Bathsheba as his own and then killing her husband Uriah the Hittite. What does he get? Forgiven. In Luke's gospel, Jesus is having dinner with a Pharisee when a sinful woman comes in, interrupts the party, anoints Jesus, kisses his feet, cries and dry's his feet…

Arise!

Today in Mass, the gospel reading was Luke 7:11-17. It's the story of the widow in Nain whose son had died. Jesus was moved with pity and told her, "Do not weep." Then he stepped forward, touched the coffin and said, "Young man, I tell you, arise!" And so he did. Then Jesus gave him to his mother. The gospel says that "fear seized them all."

"I know i can't be with you anymore. But that's ok, because I am in you." Joanne took her final journey home 7 years ago today. And I know she can't be with us anymore, but she is definitely within us. I love you babe, always and forever.

9 children!  That is great.  I don't know how you do it!  I have two small children and I have a really hard time -- I can't imagine 9!  My hat is off to you.  I also lost my wife to cancer, so I know what that is like.  Thanks for connecting.  You have my understanding, and I send love and encouragement your way today.
