The life experience of my great-grandfather crossing the ocean from Sicily to America and then going back to get his family and bring them to the States offers us some insights into how our Lord guides us.

If we don't know Jesus and have a personal relationship with Him, the reality of death is terribly frightening.  Prayerful reading of Sacred Scripture helps us to get to know Jesus and understand the meaning of death in the light of Jesus' love and promises for us.

The liturgy of the Word this Sunday helps us to understand one of the aspects of our life of prayer: Christian prayer heals our wounds.

When we don't draw near to Jesus through a life of prayer, our wounds don't heal and this leads us to live on the outskirts of our family and society.  As we learn to draw near to Jesus with our wounds, we experience the power of His transforming and healing love which makes us disciples of this very same healing love in the lives of others.

The liturgy of the word lends itself beautifully to the alpha question of the week: how can we have faith?  Nicky explains the three facets of faith: 1) the promises of Jesus as a foundation of faith; 2) the works of Jesus become motives of our belief; and 3) the witness of the Holy Spirit is an experience of the power of Jesus' transforming love. An image inspired from the book of Revelation helps us to understand how we can stir into flame the fire of faith.
