  • Widow's Mite

    Contributed by Paul Andrew on Sep 17, 2018
     | 71 views

    God wants us to help those with the fewest of resources, to learn from them

    32B The Gospel story for today is often referred to as the story of “The Widow’s Mite” where “mite” refers to a small copper coin. An even better title might be “The Widow’s Plight.” You see, fundraisers and stewardship leaders love this widow. Dutifully sitting at home all year, spending her ...read more

    If the order is mixed up, problems happen

    31B The secret of happiness is revealed to us by Jesus Christ in our Gospel text today concerning the “Relationship Triad” of Loving God, Loving Neighbor, and Loving Our self, in that order. If the order is mixed up, problems happen as seen in one of the Peanuts’ comic strips which had Linus ...read more

  • Get Behind Me, Satan

    Jesus says that the Son of Man MUST suffer greatly...

    24B. Talk about anti-climactic: Peter’s inspired answer that Jesus is “The One,” (the Messiah), through whom God will accomplish all that he promised is followed by the rebuke of, “Get behind me, Satan.” e.g. A married lady went out shopping one day and when she returned home she brought with ...read more

    More on Servant leadership from the examples of James and John

    29B Throughout history, Christian writers like St. John Chrysostom, the archbishop of Constantinople, have noted the transformation of James and John in their growth into servant leaders; Servant Leadership involves phases: 1). Atheist or Agnostic— Servant leadership is simply another ploy by ...read more

  • Telos

    Contributed by Paul Andrew on Aug 31, 2018
     | 982 views

    Of all the sins listed in our Gospel today, the telos in that list is extremely off-course from God.

    22B People put their entire moral analysis on intention only; e.g. If my intention is good, I can do it. But actually, “telos” is the word in the Bible that orients ourselves toward God. Telos means “purpose, intent, goal.” E.g. Bulimia is acting against the telos of eating. A couple good ...read more

  • Servant Leadership

     | 454 views

    They learned to match their “I.Q. with their “I do;” if anybody wants to be first (a leader) the person has to be willing to serve all.

    25B The apostles get a little seminar on servant leadership from Jesus in our Gospel today. In reality everyone is acknowledged as a leader because everyone has influence over others. They learned match their “I.Q. with their “I do;” if anybody wants to be first (a leader) the person has to be ...read more

  • The Rich Young Ruler

     | 263 views

    FOBO “fear of better options?

    28B I saw a tee-shirt that said “fomo made me do it” (Fear Of Missing Out.). Did the man in our Gospel today have that, or FOBO “fear of better options,” or FODA, 'fear of doing anything?' The man ran up, knelt down, and asked Jesus, “…what must I do to inherit eternal life?" It’s like, “What is ...read more

  • Eucharistic Fix- Part 2

    Contributed by Paul Andrew on Aug 17, 2018
     | 926 views

    In the study, one person related not having a fear of death, and another related that death and resurrection are a continual process following the psychic deaths she had while in her addiction.

    20B I want to continue with an article I read from a university in Santa Barbara about Catholic Mass and its healing implications for the addicted person. In the study, a psychological sense of alienation and loneliness appears to be a common experience for the addict, because the drug of ...read more

  • El Divorcio

    Contributed by Paul Andrew on Aug 16, 2018
     | 127 views

    Por lo general, Jesús enseña que cuando se trata de primer matrimonio para ambos cónyuges, esto es un vínculo válido y que un divorcio con subsecuente matrimonio es equivalente a adulterio.

    27B En nuestro Evangelio de hoy Jesús compara el divorcio y posterior matrimonio para la persona divorciada, y lo contrasta con sus enseñanzas y las de Moisés. Lo mismo podemos hacer en nuestros días. Por ejemplo, el Rey Enrique VIII no consiguió que su matrimonio fuera anulado por ...read more

  • Divorce And Remarriage

    Contributed by Paul Andrew on Aug 10, 2018
     | 176 views

    A divorce is a legal matter. God is against it, but in some grave circumstances, it may be necessary. A Church annulment is saying that the marriage consent was substantially defective.

    27B Jesus is comparing and contrasting divorce and remarriage from what Moses allowed to his teaching. The same can be done today. e.g. We are aware of King Henry VIII of England who could not divorce Catherine of Aragon, with whom he had been unable to conceive a son, and since he could ...read more

     | 1,212 views

    The Eucharist is a cause of holiness in us when worthily received because it helps prevent the relapse of sin by the strength of this soul food.

    19B I read an article from a university in Santa Barbara, California, about Catholic Mass and its healing implications for the addicted person whereby the social network and group norms that prescribe patterns of perceiving, thinking, feeling, and behaving that promoted drug use are now ...read more

  • "¡effetá!"

    Contributed by Paul Andrew on Aug 1, 2018
     | 347 views

    En nuestros días hay mucha gente que no viene a la Misa, no reza, no se convierte, ni tampoco hace nada para santificarse porque caminan por la vida sordos a las realidades eternas.

    23B Joshua Bell tocó su violín en la estación del metro en Washington, D. C. ante la indiferencia de cientos de pasajeros; el violinista "uno de los mejores del mundo’- confesó que lo más difícil de su experiencia fue la falta de reconocimiento al final de cada obra. El 12 de enero del 2007, ...read more

  • No Se Lavaban Las Manos

    Contributed by Paul Andrew on Aug 1, 2018
     | 171 views

    Jesús está diciendo que no son las cosas externas sino las internas, las que tienen que ver con la disposición del corazón. las que pueden o santificarnos o llevarnos al pecado.

    22B Marcos 7:3 nos habla hoy de los fariseos y judíos que no comían sin lavarse antes las manos, y purificar los vasos, las jarras y las ollas. Hay un dicho, "la limpieza va del lado de la piedad. La razón por la que los discípulos no se lavaban las manos en ese episodio de nuestro ...read more

  • La Santa Misa: Remedio Para Curar Adicciones

    Contributed by Paul Andrew on Aug 1, 2018
     | 232 views

    Es como el Papa Francisco lo dijo: la Eucaristía "no es un premio para los perfectos sino un generoso remedio y un alimento para los débiles.”

    20B Quiero continuar con un artículo que leí de una universidad en Santa Bárbara sobre la Santa Misa y sus implicaciones de curación para la persona adicta. Existe una especie de subcultura de la adicción que tiene sus propios rituales; una red social informal con patrones de percepción, ...read more
