The greatest gift God has ever given us is our Mothers.  From Genesis to Revelation, and especially in the heart of the Gospels, Our Lord speaks about Motherhood.  Today we thank the Lord God for the gift of our Mothers.  “Behold, your Mother!”

The disciples recognized Jesus by His Love!  How are we responding to that love?   Let your heart be moved with gratitude and praise to claim Jesus as your Lord and Savior.  May we proclaim that He is worthy of all glory, all honor, and all praise!

“Jesus, I trust in YOU!”  The power of the Resurrection can work miracles.  This is the Good News of God’s love, His mercy, and His forgiveness.  God’s forgiveness to us depends on extending forgiveness to others.

Jesus is Alive!  He is Risen from the dead!  We must recognize Jesus as our Savior, who came to reveal His Father to us.

Jesus is our Savior!  Jesus went to battle to save us, facing everything that the enemy could bring against us, and triumphed over sin and death.  Thank you, Lord!   Alleluia!

As we come to the end of our Lenten journeys, we bring our own sufferings and hopes to the foot of the cross, with grateful hearts as those who have faced the Redeemer.   Today we observe, in silence, the work of the Father, His Son, and the Holy Spirit.  This work remains unfinished.   Let us offer Jesus our good works.

“If you sit down to eat at the table of a ruler, observe carefully what is set before you, then stretch out your hand, knowing that you must provide the same kind of meal yourself.” – Proverbs 23:1

The Eucharist allows us to live out the love that we receive, providing the same to others.  As Jesus laid down His life for us, so too, ought we to lay down our lives for our brothers.

How do you explain the Passion to someone who does not know Jesus?

His death on the cross was a creative act, giving birth to a new reality.  Passion is linked to forgiveness which is linked to mercy.  As our Lent draws to a close, let’s fan the fire of our Love for Jesus, embracing the paschal mystery.

Today’s Gospel invites us to recognize ourselves in the woman who was caught in adultery. Like her, we are subjected to Death.  But Jesus encourages us to come out of the darkness of sin and go free!

As we continue to Unleash the Gospel in our homes and community, it first has to be unleashed in your own life.  Jesus alone can reveal His Father’s Love to you.  Like the story of the Prodigal Son, God always welcomes us back!

Lent is our homecoming time. Let us repent while we have the chance. We cannot see Jesus unless we look at ourselves through Lenten self-repentance.  Let us turn to Christ, acknowledge our failings, and receive His mercy, forgiveness, and the promise of eternal life!

God brightens the way of our spiritual journeys by providing both faith and hope.  Through the Transfiguration, the hope of the disciples was needed to witness the Passion of Our Lord.  We too need hope and faith to endure our own difficulties. Remember, God doesn’t care about our failures…rather, God rejoices with each attempt to know and love Him.

Lent reminds us that while Jesus had temptations, we will be tested as well. God’s Word is a shield against the temptations of the evil one and preserve the peace in our hearts.  With faithfulness to God’s Word, Our Lord’s saving power will carry us through to share the triumph of Easter.

"Every disciple will be like his Teacher."  This means that what we say, and how we say it, will be fruitful if the words come from a heart full of goodness.  May the words of our mouths be words of peace and hope and encouragement.  When you speak, let others hear the voice of Jesus!

It is not impossible to love our enemies.  Jesus tells us that Love, not violence, is the only means to achieve anything.  Only forgiveness will truly heal us.  Let us pray for the grace to forgive.

In God’s Word today, we find both a challenge and invitation!  All that Jesus has done for us: His death on the Cross, His rising from the dead, His mercy to sinners…Jesus did this so that we can continue His work of salvation. He gave us His abundant Love so that we could know how to love others.  Nothing can separate us from His Love!

Let us follow our Archbishop’s lead to “Unleash the Gospel!”  The love that we celebrate on the altar demands to be shared.  Jesus is longing for you to welcome Him into your boat so that He can be known by others through you.  God asks, “Whom shall I send?”  Our answer is: “Here I am, Lord!”

Is it easier to forgive, or to seek forgiveness?  To forgive is to call on the Lord’s strength in order to love the offender.  When we ask God to help us to forgive, we are making the choice to love, and God supplies the grace.  The same mercy we show others when we forgive, is rendered Divine in the sacrament of reconciliation.

So often our attitudes, our behavior and our actions are influenced by the people with whom we speak.  The more we speak with the Lord, the more our hearts move towards Him.  Our mission in life is to continue the work of salvation begun by Our Savior, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

All gifts come from God with a purpose.  The same Jesus who transformed water into wine at the wedding in Cana, transforms our gifts of bread and wine into His most Holy Body and Blood. Let us receive these gifts and take Jesus to the places in the world where Christ needs to be brought!

What we see in the Epiphany is that our Father uses His creation to reveal His son, Jesus, to the Nations.  Why?  Because He is good and wants to call us back from exile and to enter the Kingdom of His beloved Son.  Through the Eucharist, just like the Magi, we can recognize and see God!

The House of God is central to Family life.  Christianity brings a new defining sense of Self and a unique sense of Family, bringing us home to the House of the Father, where we are bound as Family.
