Lambs among Wolves: A Poem

Luke 10:1-9 From the dark the wolves do watch as naked lambs travel to and fro no bag, no cloak, no sandals as to every town they go. Messengers of the One to come to each house they bleet out peace announcing to all the Kingdom of God and His eternal feast. To make such a feast the field must yield its bounty in due time but laborers are few so pray the good Lord send those to tend, to prune and hive. The bleeting peace does go out and often times returns But those who accept that potent peace...

The price...

Advent2016 Luke Meditations Scripture

Unanswered Prayers

Luke 1:5-25 Whenever I take the time to look back on my life I am amazed at the goodness of God. Especially so in light of my wandering ways. When I look back at the things I asked for and what was given to me instead I am filled with praise and thanksgiving.

A Mother Who Keeps Her Promises

Advent2016 Luke Mary Meditations Scripture

A Mother Who Keeps Her Promises

Our Lady of Guadalupe Luke 1:39-47 Over the past couple weeks I have witnessed the Rite of the Catechumenate at two different parishes. Those seeking admission to the Catechumenate are asked two primary questions. First, they are asked, "What do you ask of God's Church?" To which they reply, "faith." Second, they are asked, "What does faith offer you?" And they reply simply, "eternal life." Their responses are always firm and projected for all to hear. I admire their hunger and desire for faith and for eternal life. Those of us who have been "in the Faith" for a while...
