Thirtieth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Where is faith found?  Not in a book or in a church. There is no proof for faith.  There can be none.  Faith is what you find when you’re alone and realize that your are not.

Twenty-Ninths Sunday in Ordinary Time

What is greatness? Is it climbing to the top? Moving on up? Or is greatness serving others? Opportunities for service are part of our daily lives in the role we are entrusted. Nurses serve their patients, teachers their students. Parents tend to the needs of their children and spouses are engaged helping each other. We don’t need a passport or immunizations, or a long flight to a foreign country. A woman had the insight about the possibilities for service placing a plaque in her kitchen stating “Apostolic service is rendered here three times a day.”

We are bolstered by that fact that Jesus offers us all things with love even the distasteful ones. His power within us helps us to face every obstacle, “All things are possible with God.” May we have courage in what ever we encounter.
~ Fr. Matt

Twenty-Seventh Sunday in Ordinary Time

Is God ever ashamed of us? According to the Letter to the Hebrews, our humanity is permanently part of God’s identity. However; our lack of forgiveness makes it hard for Jesus to call us his brothers and sisters. Remember when the Amish kids were murdered in Pennsylvania and that very day a group of Amish went to the perpetrators wife and offered her forgiveness, even inviting her to the funerals of the Amish children. What is our level of forgiveness?
