Just as a grain of wheat falls to the ground and dies - to produce much fruit - so our lives are offered in the world to bring a fruitful, spiritual harvest.  May this offering be filled with joy, for God loves a cheerful giver.

Jesus shows how God seeks us out like a shepherd who searches for a lost sheep.  May we turn to the Lord in our need and at the same time help those around us in their moments of trial.

While we talk about "faith" in a wide variety of ways, two main distinctions can be made.  The first is about facts or information, the second is about the strength of a relationship.  May we continue to learn more about our faith, so that we might grow closer every day to Jesus Christ.

Peter, James, and John suddenly see the Lord in his heavenly glory.  This glimpse inspires their hope as Christ prepares to face his Passion.  May this feast strengthen our hope to face whatever is before us this day, with our eyes fixed on God's triumphant glory.

The Lord's words to "take up your cross" invite us to acknowledge our own crosses, ask for help, and carry them with the conviction that as Christ was victorious through his Cross, he will triumph through ours as well.

St. Peter's praise and censure in the Gospel reminds us that we follow Christ in good times and in bad.  Indeed, when things are toughest, our faith provides the grace to see us through.

The Canaanite woman in the Gospel is not Jewish, and she does not know the Law, the Prophets, or the great story of salvation history.  What she knows is that Jesus can heal, and on that simple premise she reveals a faith that will not be denied...giving us an example to follow.

Here's a question:  Would you be willing to die for your faith?  Both Jeremiah and John the Baptist are put to the test, and we know that today people are killed for following Christ.  May our lives reveal our love for the Lord...in both life and death.

The Lord teaches us that at the end of time we will all be judged.  As we place our lives in the Potter's Hands, we are shaped and molded to be ready for the Kingdom of Heaven.

Our relationships - with God and one another - form the framework of our lives.  In light of the readings today we strive to heal those relationships that are broken and make even stronger  those that are well.

The parable of the weeds and the wheat speaks to both the reality of sin and final judgment.  We know that sin is part of our lives, and we have the opportunity to seek the Lord's forgiveness now...because one day we will all stand before the judgment seat of God.

She is the first person Jesus appears to after his resurrection.  Mary Magdalene, a "sinner" who found in Christ forgiveness and compassion, becomes our model today.  May we, in our own weakness and sin, see Christ and respond with love to his call.

The Sower scatters the seed, but the growth depends on the soil and circumstances.  In the same way, the Good News is given to all...what will be the response in the garden of our hearts?

"Lord, where do I see you today?" is perhaps a powerful question that reorients how we see the world.  The Holy Spirit continues to work in the spectrum of our lives - good, bad, and ugly - to guide and strengthen us for the journey to heaven.  May we actively seek the Lord's presence in our lives and respond all our hearts.

Jesus tells us in the Gospel of Matthew that God reveals what is hidden to the childlike.  May we recapture the simple and direct approach of children as we turn to the Lord to ask for what we need and trust in God's guidance and direction.
