The Gift God Wants to Give Us is the Gift Above All Other Gifts (Mt:13:44-52) (17 OT)

God offered Solomon anything He asked for. What would you ask God for? Why not ask for the wisdom to know what to ask for; the treasure of the Kingdom of God.  This is the gift above all other gifts because if "God did not spare his own Son, but gave him for us, will he not also give us all gifts besides?" Rm 8:32.  These letter of St. Paul describes the treasure that once found will cause on to go in Joy, sell all they have to obtain that treasure. True wisdom is to seek this treasure above all other things in this life.

Weeds Among Wheat are like Catfish in the Cod Tank (Mt 13:24-43) (16 OT)

Weeds Among Wheat are like Catfish in the Cod Tank (Mt 13:24-43) (16 OT)

July 19, 2020

The parable of the weeds among the wheat shows that God has chosen to allow good and bad to co-exist. If God is all powerful, and Loving, why would God allow evil to exist? This homily addresses that question, and shares that where evil abounds, God's grace abounds all the more. Our response to evil should be to be better Christians; more loving, more forgiving, working harder to share in the mission of Jesus; to save souls that they may repent and accept the love and forgiveness of God. Together we can be the mustard seed growing into a large shelter for all, and the leaven in the dough making the whole batch rise!

The Parable of the Sower in Context (Mt 13:24-43) (15 OT)

Jesus is telling this parable after having been rejected by many. He is explaining why some listen to the Word of God and some do not.  To listen is hard, it requires an open heart, and calls us to conversion, and then to produce fruit. Most don't want to do that.

Come to Me Jesus Says; My Yoke is Easy, My Burden Light (Mt 11:25-30) (14 OT)

Come to Me Jesus Says; My Yoke is Easy, My Burden Light (Mt 11:25-30) (14 OT)

July 5, 2020

These are very comforting words indeed.  But what is a yoke anyway? What is the Yoke of Jesus that he invites us to put on? And how does it make a difference.  The yoke is His will. It takes humility to be led by Jesus! But it is easier than going it alone in life. No matter where you are in life, no matter what is going on, if you truly are open to God's will, then just say "Lord I can't wait to see how your going to work this one out!"
