Independence Day
Matthew 9:18-26

Once again, we need to ask ourselves some very hard questions: Who am I? Why am I here in this world and this moment of history? Where am I going? What are God’s plans for me? And through it all, it is our faith that helps us face the ultimate issues in life. But faith requires dependency on our God. So today, we thank God for being with us and we thank God for our independence as a nation!
Happy Independence Day!

Fourteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time
Luke 10:1-12,17-20

The kingdom of God needs to be obvious in you and me! How approachable am I? Can people feel comfortable and be themselves with me? Do I exude love and peace? Besides all my struggles to be holy can I reach out and assist others on their spiritual journey? That is what Jesus is looking for. People who will be so full of God and not full of themselves.

If you have a challenging time appreciating religion in your life maybe it is because there is not enough life in your understanding of religion, the life of those in need. Let us fast from our needs and reach out to others in need for the bridegroom is with us.

Matthew 9:1-8

As followers of Jesus, we are part of a great community. Even when we have lost faith and hope, this great community of believers bears us up to Christ to for forgiveness and healing. We are called to be the friends who bring one another to the Lord so that he can give us what we cannot give ourselves, a new life.

Thirteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time,
Luke 9:51-62

Some Christians get upset by Atheists. But when you think about it, prejudice contradicts the Christian faith more blatantly than Atheism ever could. So how we manage the pain of rejection, and the pain of disappointment will determine how faithful we are to our calling. Jesus summed it up so well: “Whoever puts his hand to the plow but keeps looking back is unfit for the reign of God.”

The Nativity of St. John the Baptist,
Luke 1:57-66,80

In addition to the name given us by our family at baptism, we also became known as a Christian. It defines us. It tells the world who we are and what should be expected of us. Like John we need to discover what God has created us to be and live out the demands of that call without compromise. How are we improving from the past generation of Christians? What sense of newness and life do we bring to the name Christian?

Matthew 7:15-20

In the Gospel of Mark there is a story about a man who is casting out demons in Jesus’ name although he is not part of the chosen twelve disciples. When the disciples complain about him, Jesus responds and says that whoever is not against us is for us. Here is a tree bearing good fruit, a true prophet, though he is not part of the twelve. We can find good trees and good fruit in surprising places.

Matthew 7:1-5

It is easy for us to condemn others for their sins against God, against neighbor, against self, and against creation. There are those who judge others unfavorably because they do things that go against their own way of doing things, or even because they are simply different from us. Jesus says that our harshness of judgment will be reflected in God’s judgment of us.

The Holy Body and Blood of Christ
Luke 9:11-17

When the disciples saw the small amount they had to feed the crowd, they complained. For them there was no cause for rejoicing. Their focus was on how little they had. Jesus was not only grateful for the small supply of food, but he was also generous with it. He shared it with the crowd. And in that act of sharing, it became enough and more than enough. Life always works that way.

Matthew 6:24-34

Jesus talked to his followers about the problem of worry. His reminder is ever so simple, but it makes so much sense. First of all, we need to be mindful of the presence and providence of God. Our worrying can stem from an awareness of our own inadequacy. Jesus is reminding us that we are not in this alone. Everything does not depend on us. God brought us safely to this point in life and he will not abandon us.
