A beginning is always a crucial time - how we start often defines the outcome of a project or task, as well as our attitude as we work.  We are reminded today to be vigilant: constantly prepared; swift to act; and disciplined in our effort.  May the start of our Advent season prepare us for a glorious Christmas!

What are you thankful for today?  When you count your blessings what comes to mind?  Gratitude is a powerful antidote for many spiritual sicknesses.  Take a moment today and consider the ways your life has been graced by God!

Christ, our Savior, Lord, and Friend...is also our King.  What's more, the King has given us some very specific commands - here are three:

  • Love one another
  • Forgive one another
  • Receive the Eucharist

As we follow the King may we carry out his commands!

Jesus wept over the city of Jerusalem.  He sees the tribulation that will come, and he opens his arms to embrace the sadness...that he might touch it and bless it.  May we turn to the Lord in our moments of sorrow and allow his grace to guide us.  Sorrow is not the end, and with God's help we will face our tears with hope.

Life offers difficulties and multiple uncertainties.  What's more, no one knows the hour when we will be called by God out of this world.  So how do we live?

Answer:  Fully alive in the present moment!

How?

  • What's your "bucket list" of unfinished business?  Get 'er done.
  • Perform a daily diagnostic.  It's called an Examination of Conscience.
  • Dare to share your heart.  Say "I love you" to the people in your life!

This talk was given to Confirmation students from the Cathedral and St. Francis Xavier parishes on November 11, 2015.

Note these four points:

  • God made us to be united with Him
  • Sin destroys our relationships with God and one another
  • Christ restores the relationship through his life, death, and resurrection
  • Each of us can choose to accept the gift of Christ and live as his disciple

This message is not just for kids preparing to be confirmed!  May all of us see the beauty of life, confront our struggles, and embrace the gift of Christ's saving grace.

St. Leo's life offers us three points to consider for our own faith:

  • We are committed to a long journey
  • There are challenges without
  • There are challenges within

St. Leo, PRAY FOR US!  Help us to turn to Jesus Christ as we face the blessings and burdens of life.

It's all about blessings.  God lavishes graces and blessings upon us...let's take time to acknowledge them.  And then out of gratitude...let's consider how we might be a blessing to others.  Consider today how we might share our time, talent, and treasure to bless the life of another...drawing us closer to the Lord and one another.

Sometimes we need to be reminded that the Lord welcomes us every time we turn from our sins and seek God's grace.  If there is anything holding us back (you know...fear, doubt, worry, shame, sin, or some other spiritual junk) then perhaps today is our chance to return to the one who loves us completely.

Chapter 12 in Paul's Letter to the Romans is a beautiful exhortation to live our lives infused with the love of Christ.  Below you will find the link to this daily Mass reading - make a copy and post it on your bathroom mirror as a powerful reminder!

"Do you want to be a saint?"  When we look at the lives of the saints we see people just like us - young/old, rich/poor, possessing a wide variety of skills, experiences, and abilities.  May their example inspire us to live our faith in Christ...so we can one day rejoice with them in heaven.
