Advent and Fear of the Lord

Advent and Fear of the Lord

Luke 21:34-36 I haven't posted much this week in the area of Scripture meditations. The reason is that, well, they've been pretty frightening. Seriously, have you read them? If not, take a few moments and check them out. We're talking Apocalyptic readings! Death, famine, earthquakes, fire, and angels with sickles. It's certainly not what I like dancing around in my mind as I put up the Christmas lights on the house! Although I haven't posted much about the readings, they have been haunting me all week. So, I had to take some time and ask myself, "What is it about...

(Last Tuesday of Ordinary Time)

Luke 21:5-11

I have a melancholic temperament so this time of the liturgical year is my favorite. The readings are all about the end. They speak to us of the final act and the return of Our Lord. Not only do I like the readings because they are filled with a WCSS'sdreams but it helps me get my focus back to living every moment as if it were...

Giving God My Leftovers

Monday November 26th, 2018 (The Last Week of Ordinary Time) Luke 21:1-4 "And what I have leftover, I give unto you O Lord!" Of course I would never pray that privately or out loud. Yet, that is often the way I live. I often give the Lord leftovers. I give money that I can part with. I give my time in prayer when I can fit it in. I seek to help others when I am not busy with my own cares. Leftovers. What if I did that with my other personal relationships? What would my life be like if...

Luke 11:15-26

When our children were much younger I would read the Chronicles of Narnia to the boys each night before bed. Althoughthey were too young to appreciate the fullness of the stories, they enjoyed them tremendously. They loved the battles, kings, princes, talking beasts, and of course Aslan (the Christ figure of the stories). It's hard to chose a favorite out of...

Teach Me!
Wednesday October 11th, 2017

St. John XXIII

Luke 11:1-4

I pride myself on being a "self-made man". I have taught myself many things. When I was about 12 years-old I taught myself how to ride a unicycle. After a lot of practice and a lot of failures I was able to leave the balancing poles behind and set out to ride all over the neighborhood.

I received a great foundation in the Catholic faith under the...
