  • Sixth Sunday Of Easter/Mother’s Day--“I Have Called You Friends” John 15:15

    Contributed by Paul Andrew on May 7, 2021

    By choosing active receptivity to the divine Friend, we think and feel the same way about reality and the world.

  • Fifth Sunday Of Easter; Easter 5 B; Vine And Branches

    Contributed by Paul Andrew on Apr 30, 2021

    The Atlantic began to come in; its mighty shoulders underneath the boats lifted—lifted until the derelict had to come. The youth had harnessed infinite energy to his task.

    5B "Apart from me you can do nothing." One of the most difficult acts of self-discipline in the spiritual life is to concentrate on the present moment: "age quod agis", which means do what you are doing, concentrate on the present. Staying connected; to be sustained and more

  • Third Sunday Of Easter--Characteristics Of A Resurrected Body

    Contributed by Paul Andrew on Apr 16, 2021

    “When we hear of the holiness of some people, our first reaction is: I knew her when...Between the “then” and the “now” has intervened a battle in which selfishness lost and faith won out.”

    A mother proudly told her pastor: "My teenage son has finally learned one bible verse: It's Luke 24, verse 41, from today’s Gospel, where Jesus says to his disciples, “Have you anything here to eat?” Characteristics of a resurrected body to eternal life— 1). St. Thomas Aquinas says that more

  • Domingo De Pascua La Resurrección Del Señor

    Contributed by Paul Andrew on Apr 3, 2021

    El lenguaje de la Pascua nos dice esto que tenemos que experimentarlo personalmente.

    Hay un juguete llamado “La historia de Pascua,Colina del Calvario,” que tiene una piedra de plástico que realmente rueda en una ranura y tres cruces extraíbles. Sin embargo, el juguete no viene con figuras de acción, pero se recomienda "Colecciónalos todos". 1). more

    I mentioned that there was not an accompanying storybook to the Easter Playset. Maybe because the very language of Easter—Pascal-- tells us this that we have to personally experience it. Pasch means "Passing through," in Exodus Chapter 12,...

    There are some Christian educational toys for Ages 4-9, like Jesus Feeds the Five Thousand; Daniel and the Lion's Den; Jesus Walks on Water; Moses and the Ten Plagues. Each Playset features full-color, child-safe, action figures that are designed to be paired with its own book which neatly more

    We need the ground for all those negatives things to die.

    And when I am lifted up from the earth, I will draw everyone to myself.” John 12:32 He draws us, not forces us. Jeremiah 31:3 “I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.’” Song of Songs 1:3, “Draw me after you.” He draws us by his suffering for more

    based on 1 rating

    The trial reveals a political theology where resistance and resilience are faithful Christian practices

    Pilate questioned him, “Are you the king of the Jews?” He said to him in reply, “You say so.” Meaning, “is this a personal discovery? Or are you just repeating what others have told you?” In a famous sentence Plato said, “The unexamined life is not worth living.” We may also say the more

  • Third Sunday Of Lent Year B- Cleansing The Temple

    Contributed by Paul Andrew on Mar 5, 2021

    Jesus is doing disruptive even violent actions here, shocking me out of my consumerist mentality. No wonder my Savior hangs on a Cross.

    Whipping us into shape? “He made a whip out of cords.” John 2:15 Jesus made a whip. Making something with your hands can be therapeutic. Making a whip shows his anger did not impair his judgement. Writing an angry letter is a good way of bringing our feelings out so that we can see them. more

    Contributed by Paul Andrew on Feb 19, 2021

    “He was among wild beasts, and the angels ministered to him.” In the Greek, these were dangerous animals. These wild animals can remind us that dangers surrounded Jesus all through his life. And ours. e.g. At a United States Army post in the desert of Kuwait, Protestant Chaplain (Major) Barbara more

    Contributed by Paul Andrew on Feb 12, 2021

    Valentine welcomed them on arriving and wished them God-speed when they left.
