“Please, let me kiss my father and mother goodbye,
and I will follow you.” (1Kings 19:20)
Jesus also mentions reluctance at "the call":
"And to another Jesus said, “Follow me.”
But he replied, “Lord, let me go first and bury my father.” ...
And another said, “I will follow you, Lord,
but first let me say farewell to my family at home.”
To him Jesus said, “No one who sets a hand to the plow
and looks to what was left behind is fit for the kingdom of God.” (Luke 9:59-62)

"And so I say to you, you are Peter,
and upon this rock I will build my Church,
and the gates of the netherworld shall not prevail against it.
I will give you the keys to the Kingdom of heaven.
Whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven;
and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.” (Matthew 16:18-19)

Jun 28, 2013

"When Jesus came down from the mountain, great crowds followed him.
And then a leper approached, did him homage, and said,
“Lord, if you wish, you can make me clean.”
He stretched out his hand, touched him, and said,
“I will do it. Be made clean.”
His leprosy was cleansed immediately." (MT 8:1-4)

Jun 27, 2013

Abraham is central to our faith in God the Father as Christians. Abraham encounters Yahweh and believes in Him. In a world in which people acknowledged many gods, Abraham becomes our father in faith in the belief in One God.

Jesus says…”by  their fruits you shall know them. Do people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles?
Just so every good tree bears good fruit, and a rotten tree bears bad fruit…” (Matthew 7: 16-18)

Jun 25, 2013

Jesus said to his disciples:
“Do not give what is holy to dogs, or throw your pearls before swine, lest they trample them underfoot, and turn and tear you to pieces.”
“Do to others whatever you would have them do to you. That is the law and the Prophets.”
“Enter through the narrow gate; For the gate is wide and the road broad that leads to destruction and those who enter through it are many. How narrow the gate and constricted the road that leads to life. And those who find it are few.” (MT 7:6, 12-14)

Jun 24, 2013

“but the Lord answered.....say
not, “I am too young.” To whomever I send you, you shall go; whatever I command you,
you shall speak. Have no fear before them, because I am with you to deliver you, says
the Lord!” (Jeremiah 1: 7-8)

Jun 23, 2013

He said, “The Son of Man must suffer greatly
and be rejected by the elders, the chief priests, and the scribes,
and be killed and on the third day be raised.” (Luke 9:22)

Jun 22, 2013

“No one can serve two masters.
He will either hate one and love the other,
or be devoted to one and despise the other.
You cannot serve God and mammon." (Matthew 6: 24)

Jun 21, 2013

Jesus said to his disciples:
“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth,
where moth and decay destroy, and thieves break in and steal.
But store up treasures in heaven,
where neither moth nor decay destroys, nor thieves break in and steal.
For where your treasure is, there also will your heart be." (MT 6:19-23)

EACH of these scriptures is clear by ITSELF.  But connecting them will take some DIGGING.
In our 1st reading from his 2nd letter to the Corinthians, Paul could be compared to an EXASPERATED parent.  The children have been instructed with great pain, hard work and very much love only to weaken in the face of temptation.  Paul is so protective he’s practically at wit’s end.  Look, people. I’ve given you the real deal, the truth, so don’t be fooled and lured into counterfeit versions of the gospel.?  (2 Cor 11:4)

Jun 19, 2013

Today’s scripture talks about giving. Many people get angry or annoyed when the church tells them to give. And there are some churches that go about it the wrong way. But giving is a very important aspect of our Christian walk.

Jun 18, 2013

"The one who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will supply and multiply your seed and increase the harvest of your righteousness." (2 Corinthians 9: 10)

Jun 17, 2013

“You have heard that it was said,
An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.
But I say to you, offer no resistance to one who is evil.
When someone strikes you on your right cheek,
turn the other one to him as well.
If anyone wants to go to law with you over your tunic,
hand him your cloak as well.
Should anyone press you into service for one mile,
go with him for two miles.
Give to the one who asks of you,
and do not turn your back on one who wants to borrow.” (Matthew 5: 38-42)

Jun 16, 2013

‘I anointed you king of Israel.
I rescued you from the hand of Saul.
I gave you your lord’s house and your lord’s wives for your own.
I gave you the house of Israel and of Judah.
And if this were not enough. I could count up for you still more." (2 Samuel 12:7-8)

Jun 15, 2013

“Do not take a false oath, but make good to the Lord all that you vow….do not swear at all….Let your ‘Yes’ mean ‘yes’ and your ‘no’ mean ‘no’." (Matthew 5: 34-37)

Jun 14, 2013

"If your right eye causes you to sin,
tear it out and throw it away.
It is better for you to lose one of your members
than to have your whole body thrown into Gehenna.
And if your right hand causes you to sin,
cut it off and throw it away.
It is better for you to lose one of your members
than to have your whole body go into Gehenna." (Matthew 5: 29-30)

Jun 13, 2013

“You have heard that it was said to your ancestors,
You shall not kill; and whoever kills will be liable to judgment.
But I say to you, whoever is angry with his brother
will be liable to judgment…
…Therefore, if you bring your gift to the altar,
and there recall that your brother has anything against you,
leave your gift there at the altar,
go first and be reconciled with your brother,
and then come and offer your gift.” (MT 5:20-26)

Jun 12, 2013

“Do not think I have come to abolish the law or the prophets. I have come not to abolish but to fulfill.” (Matthew 5:17)

Jun 11, 2013

Jesus said to his disciples:
“You are the salt of the earth.
But if salt loses its taste, with what can it be seasoned?
It is no longer good for anything
but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.
You are the light of the world.
A city set on a mountain cannot be hidden.
Nor do they light a lamp and then put it under a bushel basket;
it is set on a lampstand,
where it gives light to all in the house.
Just so, your light must shine before others,
that they may see your good deeds
and glorify your heavenly Father.” (MT 5:13-16)

Jun 10, 2013

”Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are they who mourn, for they will be comforted. Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the land.”

Jun 9, 2013

You have noticed many times on a Sunday, I’m sure, that there seems to be a CONNECTION between the 1ST reading, which is often from the Hebrew Scriptures, and the 3RD reading, the GOSPEL.  Today couldn’t be a CLEARER example of that plan.  And often, too, the 2ND reading, usually from one of the Letters, backs UP these passages with a theology-related TEACHING.  Thus we receive a complete scriptural experience.

“After three days they found him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the teachers, listening to them and asking them questions, and all who heard him were astounded at his understanding and his answers. When his parents saw him, they were astonished, and his mother said to him, “Son, why have you done this to us? Your father and I have been looking for you with great anxiety.” And he said to them, “Why were you looking for me? Did you not know that I must be in my Father’s house?” (LK 2: 41-51)

Jun 7, 2013

“The love of God has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit that has been given to us. For Christ, while we were still helpless, died at the appointed time for the ungodly. Indeed, only with difficulty does one die for a just person, though perhaps for a good person one might even find courage to die. But God proves his love for us in that while we were sinners, Christ died for us.” (Rom 5:5-8)

Jun 6, 2013

Every once in a while a really good story pops out of the Old Testament and today is one of those days. It is from the book of Tobit, thought to have been written around the 2nd Century BC by some unknown author in some unknown place. It is a combination of Jewish piety and morality wrapped up in oriental folklore.
