Who Is Building Your Home?

We have such big plans, year after year, and day after day, that it sometimes we don’t realize when God is calling us to something greater. There are times when we are Paul and have to be knocked down from our horse. Many times we need a huge wake-up call to get us focus on the right thing.

Sunday Refections: Easter

Sunday Refections: Easter

How quickly can the clouds of grief and sadness muddy our thoughts and feelings. We tend to only focus on the here and now, but tend to forget everything of the past. It is not until the dust settles that we can remember the things that didn’t come to mind at first. The smiles that the person put on our lips, and the lessons they taught us in life.

There Is No Easter Without Good Friday

Notice how in our lives there is are constant ups and downs? This Holy week, begins with Palm Sunday. From our reading in Mass, we were able to participate how the people cheered Jesus coming into the city, and at the same time, others were calling for his death.

Sunday Reflection: Look and Be Amazed

You see many of your friends are moving on with their lives, going on to “bigger and better” things, you made the decision to stick with the stay with the family route. On so many days you feel like you’re not growing, you’re not doing anything with your life, it really turns into a, “poor me” party fast! But not so fast! You too are growing, you too are moving on with your life, just in a different direction.

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day

  Today we celebrate a great Saint, who changed the faith in Ireland.  Sadly, I have a love / hate relationship with this day. Love We are able to celebrate the memory of man who is credited with converting a whole nation. Through his quick thinking, and guidance of the Holy Spirit, he took something that was familiar to the people and explained the Holy Trinity. We see the love that he had for people, especially how he loved them enough to teach to them, and have them turn away from sin. Hate Secularism took the Feast Day, and turned it into something almost unrecognizable. All the worst stereotypes of the Irish are displayed (the fighting Irish, drinking untill completely wasted–then drinking some more, leprechauns and pot of golds) The Catholic origins seemed to be completely removed from the man whom we are celebrating, but that’s not a surprise. Every year, I  want to make sure my children know the real reason behind this Feast Day, and what’s the point.  I want them to know that it’s not just a day to wear green, but who is the Saint for whom the day is named after. Here are some simple fact about Saint Patrick that you may find interesting.  Share with your friends if you want, but above all, try not to forget why this day is on the calendar and why it’s one of the most celebrated days during Lent. How do you celebrate this Feast day with your family?...
