God Wants to Be the King of Your Heart

November 20, 2022

20NOV22 (22cKing). Jesus Christ is King of the Universe. He is king of this world, but is he King of your heart. We often try and create the world and God in our image with disastrous effect. Jesus came to teach us about truth and help form us into true humans formed in God’s image. Jesus only gave us a few direct imperative commandments. One of them was “Do this in remembrance of me” and so we celebrate Mass in fidelity to Jesus’ command and are formed by Him. During Advent we will celebrate Mass Ad Oreientem. Here is a short youtube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gXzgVlK-reg  and a letter from a bishop encouraging the practice https://dioceseofgallup.org/celebrating-the-mass-ad-orientem/ and here is a priest from Minnesota’s explanation: https://icchurch.cc/ad-orientem/

02NOV22. Today I talk with Paul Duenas and Tamami Elizabeth Hatakeyama about choir and music in the liturgy. I get to hear a little more about their experience and joys, I get to share about my love (but inability in music), and about the Church’s intention of music in the Mass.

Do It Again!!

Do It Again!!

October 29, 2022

30OCT22 (22cO31). Children have a love of something and those things they want to do again and again and again. God also has a young soul that takes great joy in monotony.  He creates and keeps in existence again and again. He wants to enter our home, our soul, through the Mass in especially the Eucharist.

“Because children have abounding vitality, because they are in spirit fierce and free, therefore they want things repeated and unchanged. They always say, "Do it again"; and the grown-up person does it again until he is nearly dead. For grown-up people are not strong enough to exult in monotony. But perhaps God is strong enough to exult in monotony. It is possible that God says every morning, "Do it again" to the sun; and every evening, "Do it again" to the moon. It may not be automatic necessity that makes all daisies alike; it may be that God makes every daisy separately, but has never got tired of making them. It may be that He has the eternal appetite of infancy; for we have sinned and grown old, and our Father is younger than we.” (G. K. Chesterton, Orthodoxy)

Compare Only to Jesus

Compare Only to Jesus

October 23, 2022

23OCT22 (22cO30). We often take part in unhealthy comparisons. Either placing us in worse life situations than other people or thinking of ourselves as better than other people. Ultimately God loves each of us individually not in comparison. The only comparison we should do is between us and Jesus and we will lose every time. That puts us in the right place to pray with the Tax Collector “O God, have mercy on me a sinner”.

What is the Bare Minimum?

What is the Bare Minimum?

October 1, 2022

02OCT22 (22cO26). Do we have faith the size of a mustard seed? What is the bare minimum as a Catholic? We have the 5 precepts of the Church which give that bare minimum standard. Not an exciting homily, but still something.

  1. Attend Mass on Sundays and on Holy Days while resting from servile labor.
  2. To receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation at least once a year.
  3. Te receive the Eucharist at least once a year.
  4. To observe the days of fasting and abstinence.
  5. To help provide for the needs of the Church according to one's ability.
  6. * To obey the laws of the Church concerning marriage.

Little is Big

Little is Big

September 17, 2022

18SEP22 (22cO25). Little things don’t really matter, but they matter so much. It is a hard thing to completely understand that little things are important. We can easily lie to ourselves that we can do the big things, but we just won’t worry about the small things. We don’t run into large things often, but everyday we learn, grow, and prove our trustworthiness in the small things. It isn’t about perfection, it is about trustworthiness and faithfulness.
