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!

The Love we celebrate demands to be shared.  God is choosing YOU to break through the pain, sadness, and darkness of others to share with them the Good News of Jesus!

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!

Seek refuge in the promises of Christ!  When Jesus promises something, that is an anchor that you hang onto firmly with all your being.

Behold, your Mother!  When we welcome Mother Mary into our lives and homes, she comes with the power of the Holy Spirit to cast out the darkness, so that we may see the path to Our Savior.  This New Year, allow Jesus to move with power in your life to make all things new!

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.
