Speak Jesus

“For the one whom God sent speaks the word of God” (John 3: 34). Jesus often reminds us that we are sent just as He was sent from the Father. We are on mission with Jesus. If we are to speak the word of God, and Jesus is the WORD of God, then we are...

In our Weakness

“God so loved the world that He gave His only Son…” (John 3:16). God gave His only Son, not for a perfect people, but for: those who had betrayed Him those who had turned away from Him time and time again those who “replaced” Him with false gods those who thought their way was better...

In the Garden

At the very beginning, we are told that God walked in intimacy with Adam and Eve in the garden. After they turned away from Him in sin, however, they hid themselves, fearful and full of shame. In today’s Gospel, we are once again in a garden. This time, Mary Magdalene does not hide from God....

Lord, I Need You

Some refer to today as “Spy Wednesday”, a day on which is highlighted Judas’ betrayal of Jesus. Judas was one of the twelve apostles, specifically and personally chosen by Jesus. He spent three years living intimately with Jesus and sharing in His life and ministry. What happened? How did he come to betray Jesus? Did...

Broken

As we enter into these days of Holy Week, let us come as we are – broken and in need of healing. Those present with Jesus during the first Holy Week were far from perfect, self-focused, oblivious to God’s saving action. Yet, they were present alongside Jesus, in close proximity, and giving as they were...

Truth and Freedom

Jesus states very clearly in John’s Gospel “If you remain in my word, you will truly be my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” I want to be free. I value my freedom. My desire for freedom is much more than simply being able to do what...

At My Side

Today’s Responsorial Psalm reminds me why I have good cause to hope. “Even when I walk through a dark valley, I fear no harm for you are at my side; your rod and staff give me courage” (Ps. 23: 4). God does not promise to take away suffering and darkness, but He does promise to...

Hidden Glory

As we enter the final two weeks of Lent (Passiontide), many Churches cover the crucifix and statues with purple cloth. It may seem strange that during this holiest season of the year, we cover the very image of our salvation. It certainly gets our attention. The crucifix still remains the symbol of the greatest act...

Radiate Christ

People we encounter need and deserve more than just our love. They need to experience Christ and His love radiate in and through us. “May every soul I come in contact with see, no longer me, but You shining through me” (Saint John Henry Newman).

Catch your breath

As we make our way through this fourth week of Lent, we may feel as though these weeks are dragging on or we have lost our way. The reality is the end is in sight. If our Lenten journey has not been all we hoped for, now is the time to catch our breath (the...
