The disciples did not understand what Jesus said about his suffering and death, and they were afraid to ask for more information.  Yet as they eventually would move from fear to faith we are inspired to face whatever confronts us this day - knowing that the Lord will help us every step of the way.

The Lord asks his disciples "Who do you say that I am?"  After hearing their responses the Lord offers an intense answer: he is the Christ who will suffer, die and be raised on the third day.  May the example of Padre Pio inspire us to embrace the intensity of our lives with the grace and guidance of Jesus.

When Herod asked "Who is this Jesus?" he was responding to the Lord's ministry - where Jesus and the Apostles are proclaiming the Good News and healing the sick.  May we continue this work through our words and actions today.

Matthew heard the call of Christ and responded by bringing lots of imperfect people to the Lord.  We, too, can take comfort that the Lord welcomes our response - not because we're perfect, but because the Lord longs to heal and renew our lives.

Our faith touches crucial aspects of practical life: business affairs, politics, and money.  As followers of Jesus Christ we are "in the world, but not of the world" and we have daily opportunities to allow our faith to guide and direct what we say and do.

A man had two sons...and they both messed up.  Yet not only does the Father stay connected to his kids, he helps them understand the nature of forgiveness, mercy, and love.  Our Heavenly Father does the same for us, helping us to experience grace when we need it the most.

The Lord's practical wisdom "to know a tree by it's fruit" is immensely useful for our daily interactions with others.  We don't judge people, but we are called to acknowledge good and bad thoughts, words, and actions - recognizing that the "fruit" of our lives can be either wholesome or destructive.

The start of a new school year is a fresh beginning, just like a plain piece of paper, and it can become anything - a prayer, composition, work of art or even an airplane!  Students are given three keys for a powerful year: daily prayer, hard work, and being the best kid they can be in their families.

The Twelve Apostles had their share of weakness and sin, and yet the Lord called them to carry out his mission.  The Lord calls us as well - with all of our mistakes and mishaps - and invites us to trust in his mercy and love as we proclaim the Good News through the witness of our lives.
