• Homily for Tuesday, April 20, 2021

    April 20, 2021 by

    I am so hungry. There are a lot of hungry people in the world. The physical hunger, due to the lack of food, is the easiest to solve because it is not that we do not have enough food, but rather that we refuse to share it. The other types of hunger, spiritual, emotional or psychological are harder. But for people of faith, the important thing is that we have a relationship that can feed us.

  • Spend 5 With Jesus: Into Your Hands

    April 19, 2021 by

    Every night as my community prays night prayer, or compline, part of the prayer is singing this phrase: “Lord, into your hands I commend my spirit.” It is a phrase that in one form or another, in the gospels, is expressed by Jesus. As he dies on the cross, he gives his human life over to the Father. It is a prayer many saints are believed to have said upon their death. And it is the prayer Stephen prays today as he is killed for his faith in Jesus.

    Spend 5 With Jesus: Filled with Grace and Power

    April 18, 2021 by

    As you pray today, take a moment to ask God where it is he wants to use you. What is it that God wants you to recognize about the gifts he has given to you? How is it that God wants you to witness to what can be done when you are filled with grace and power, and you realize it? Ask Jesus today to help you to open your heart and soul to him. Ask Jesus to help you to be aware to the many ways he has filled you with gifts and graces. Take some time today to thank Jesus for all that he has done for you.

  • Spend 5 With Jesus: Denial

    April 17, 2021 by

    The loving power of Jesus is the message of Easter. Peter denies three times, then three times he affirms his love for Jesus, who then shares with him that this time, Peter will give his life for Jesus. Thomas does not believe solely on the testimony of the disciples, but only when he has the encounter with the Risen Christ. John, faithful even standing at the foot of the Cross, does not hold grudges.

  • Spend 5 with Jesus: Do Not Be Afraid

    April 16, 2021 by

    “Do not be afraid.” “The phrase “Fear not! (or equivalent translations) appears only slightly over 100 times in the Old Testament, as well as slightly over 40 times in the New Testament.” (Some claim there are 365 such citations in the bible, but, while inspiring (one for each day of the year) it is not biblically accurate.)
