  • Astonished At The Majesty And Power Of God

    Contributed by W Pat Cunningham on Sep 26, 2023

    Astonishment to the nth power. Predicted by the prophets and fulfilled in Jesus.

    Saturday of the 25th week in course 2023 “All were astonished at the majesty of God.” Of course, anyone who has gone a hundred miles from bright city lights into a cloudless countryside and has looked up knows this to be true. God’s creation, sustained in existence by His mighty hand, is more

  • Hooray! God Does Not Think Like Us!

    Contributed by W Pat Cunningham on Sep 20, 2023

    He is, as Torah teaches, “slow to anger.” That’s very different from most of us.

    Twenty-fifth Sunday in Course 2023 All of Scripture is useful to those whose purpose in life is to attain union with the Blessed Trinity. But there are probably a hundred verses that stand out as critical in the most important pursuit of our existence on earth. Two of these, surely, come from more

  • Life In God's Farm

    Contributed by W Pat Cunningham on Sep 18, 2023

    Hopefully none of us are in those categories, but allow ourselves to be discipled by Christ in His Church, instructed in His ways.

    Saturday of 24th Week in Course One of the great frustrations in many lives is the departure of children or grandchildren or siblings from the practice of their faith. You’ve heard the stories even if you haven’t experience that yourself. A son or daughter goes off to college and then comes back more

  • Good Foundations, Good Trees, Good Fruit

    Contributed by W Pat Cunningham on Sep 13, 2023

    Good trees like figs and peaches and dates produce good fruit. Good men and women produce good actions from the good treasure in their hearts.

    Saturday of the 23rd Week in Course 2023 One of the more memorable periods in our married life was the year in which we decided to build a new house in a gated community. That was, no doubt, one of the less intelligent actions we’ve taken in the past half-century, but it certainly taught us a more

  • True Love Practiced In Christian Community

    Contributed by W Pat Cunningham on Sep 6, 2023

    You then image Christ in your world today, and spread His blessed healing in our crippled society.

    Twenty-third Sunday in Course 2023 If you have paid attention, over the years you have heard many times from preachers that with your Christian identity, your baptismal covenant, you were made, like Jesus, prophet, priest and king/ruler. Those are your missions in life, to pray for yourself and more

  • His Powerful Name; His Awesome Promise

    Contributed by W Pat Cunningham on Sep 4, 2023

    We look forward at the end of our lives to participating in a New Creation, the very Kingdom of God and of His Christ, the Kingdom of Heaven.

    Saturday of the 22nd Week in Course 2023 The overall impression one can get from this very brief Gospel from Luke is that the Pharisees have nothing better to do on the Sabbath than find fault with how other Jews keep Shabbat. In this case, it was not a violation of Torah to eat the grain on more

  • Twenty-Ninth Sunday In Ordinary Time, Year A--Church And State

    Contributed by Paul Andrew on Sep 3, 2023

    Otherwise, politics is about "bread and circuses."

    Have you ever noticed that when you combine the two words, “THE” and “IRS,” it spells “THEIRS”? At one and the same time Jesus affirmed the rights of the state and freedom of conscience to worship and serve God. By allowing Caesar to collect taxes, Jesus opposes the Pharisees by acknowledging more

  • Twenty-Eighth Sunday In Ordinary Time, Year A: Marriage Supper Of The Lamb

    Contributed by Paul Andrew on Sep 2, 2023

    Heaven is the ultimate end and fulfilment of the deepest human longings, the state of supreme, definitive happiness

    At the wedding rehearsal, the bride told the priest that she was nervous that she would not remember what to do during the wedding. The celebrant told her that she only needed to remember 3 things. First the aisle, because that is what you'll be walking down. Secondly, the altar because more

  • Transformed By The Renewal Of Our Minds

    Contributed by W Pat Cunningham on Aug 30, 2023

    It certainly appears, as many commentators have noted, that God is at heart a hedonist. He seems to delight in humans taking pleasure in creation.

    Twenty-Second Sunday in Course 2023 The Hebrew prophet Jeremiah knew the joys and dangers of obeying the admonition to offer one’s body as a living sacrifice to God, and of refusing to conform himself to a corrupt age, such as he had, and Jesus, and, for that matter, us in twenty-first century more

  • Facing The Challenge Of A Warped Society

    Contributed by W Pat Cunningham on Aug 29, 2023

    Paul expected all of his congregations to listen to their minds and order their hearts in the right way. He told the folks at Thessalonika that they had no need for anyone to write them about loving their neighbor.

    Saturday of the 21st Week in Course 2023 Ordinarily we tend to associate St. Paul’s teachings on chastity and lust with the letters to the Corinthians. But that’s shortsighted. Remember that even as far back as Plato and Aristotle, the virtuous life was associated with men and women who would more

  • Twenty-Seventh Sunday In Ordinary Time, Year A- Wicked Tenants

    Contributed by Paul Andrew on Aug 27, 2023

    In one word, what do you live for?

    In 1962, when President John F. Kennedy was visiting the NASA Space center, he noticed a janitor sweeping the hallway and asked him, “What do you do around here?” To his surprise, the janitor replied, “Well, Mr. President, I’m helping to put a man on the moon.” This janitor found meaning in seeing more

  • The Great Prayer Of Power

    Contributed by W Pat Cunningham on Aug 24, 2023

    Since Our Lord has taught us to do this, the prayer for enemies must be the most effective prayer we can ever raise to God.

    Saturday of the First Week in Lent 2023 The command to “be perfect as your heavenly Father” can be very scary, especially to a young person. As kids, we constantly push the boundaries of conduct that is unacceptable to mom and dad. And they constantly reiterate the boundaries, unless they wimp out more

  • Twenty-Sixth Sunday In Ordinary Time- Yes Means No And No Means Yes.

    Contributed by Paul Andrew on Aug 21, 2023

    Statistically, in St. Matthew’s Gospel, words and expressions which emphasize obedience, the doing of God’s will, are among his favorite.

    Nikos Kazantzakis was a tortured Greek writer who was constantly haunted by God. He once wrote of an experience he had when he climbed Mount Athos to visit a monk at a monastery. “Father Makarios,” he said to the old monk, “I remember that in your younger days you wrestled with the devil. Do you more

  • Be Faithful To The Mission To The Nations

    Contributed by W Pat Cunningham on Aug 21, 2023

    The story of Ruth, and her place in the genealogy of the Messiah, is written testimony against a kind of closed faith and worship.

    Saturday of the 20th Week in Course 2023 The story of the Moabite woman, Ruth, has come down to us because of her association with the kingly house of David. She was David’s great-great grandmother. But for both OT and NT authors, her distinction was that she was not descended from the patriarch more

  • Exactly What Do You Worship?

    Contributed by W Pat Cunningham on Aug 14, 2023

    What is the most important thing or process or person in your life? That is what you worship and serve.

    Saturday of the 19th Week in course 2023 A wise man once told me how to really know another person with one simple question. The question the other person must answer is “what do you worship?” That means, what is the most important thing or process or person in your life? That is what you worship more
