St. Paul lays out a problem and a solution in the 1st Reading today.  In the face of sin and death, Jesus Christ conquers all.  As we face the struggles before us today, may we turn to the Lord for the grace we need.  After all, the victory is His.

The images of a mustard seed and yeast remind us that little things can bring about big changes.  The spiritual virtue of Hope empowers us to face our lives with the grace of Christ, who will work through us in little ways to make a difference in the world.

The grace of Jesus Christ brings power to our lives.  We have the opportunity to draw on Christ and share his grace with others, especially as we live our vocation and help others to find their own!

St. Paul reminds us:

"The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Jesus Christ our Lord." (Romans 6:23)

May we acknowledge our sins and embrace the freely given gift of grace!

Jesus Christ shows us that suffering is a pathway, not a destination.  Through suffering we experience a purification - whereby we grow and discover new insights through the process of challenge, pain, and difficulty.  God permits suffering that we might be changed...for the good.  For remember: the suffering of Good Friday will be transformed into the joy of Easter Day.

We are thus consoled and challenged by these words.  Consoled, in that we take hope that the triumph of Christ on the Cross will one day be our triumph.  He understands our suffering (he's already been through his own) and we can cling to his mercy and grace.

Challenged, in that we are invited to drink from the cup of suffering.  Like Christ, we pray that the cup will pass by, but like Christ we will accept what God sets before us - opening our hearts to God and allow this process to transform us.

What is the most important thing in your life?  What's at the center of your life - that which gives meaning, purpose, and perspective to everything else that you do?  The Lord invites us today to focus on him, so that everything we think, say, and do is touched by the grace of Jesus Christ.  With God first, our lives become balanced and empowered - allowing us to use resources, relate with others, and engage our lives with conviction and joy!

We face a dilemma in our world today: we want to say something positive and beautiful about the blessing of marriage, yet we also know first hand the pain and awkwardness of divorce.  Two words from the example of Jesus can guide us - Connect & Help.
