The Lord's Prayer is a powerful spiritual tool that has fostered faith in the heart of believers since the time of Christ.  This potent prayer, however, packs an added punch: it demands that we forgive one another as God forgives us.

We begin the season of Lent by acknowledging our sins and admitting our faults.  Rather than blame others or hide from our shortcomings, we place ashes on our foreheads as a sign and confession that we need Jesus to receive forgiveness and mercy.

It's (in my pastoral opinion) the toughest teaching of Jesus, and it challenges us to call down help from Heaven to carry it out. May we honestly consider who is difficult to love in our lives today and strive with the Lord's help to love...even our enemies.

Feb 18, 2023

The Letter to the Hebrews reminds us that "faith is the realization of what is hoped for, and evidence of things not seen." May our faith be strengthened by God's grace, so that we might persevere in times of struggle and strife.

As the people began to reject the Lord's injunction to spread out over the earth, their desire to congregate together and build a tower to the heavens reveals their pride.  May we take the lesson to heart and humbly acknowledge this nasty sin whenever it surfaces in our souls.

The Book of Sirach reminds us to choose wisely as we confront the daily decisions before us. Not only is it crucial what we choose; we are also defined be how we choose to do it.

As God confronts Adam and Eve about their actions, we discern the natural consequences of sin, whereby division arises and separates us from the Lord and one another.
