Readings for Today

It would seem that if we consider the power of God’s love, prayer would come easily.  And while sometimes it does, that is not always the case.  Sometimes, like when we are on a retreat, for example, it can seem easy to pray.  At other times, it can interrupt our lives or can be hard.

Perhaps this is because there are different types of prayer.  I know I can focus too much on petition or intercession types of prayers.  Yet, do I think God? Do I praise him? Do I just sit in his presence? Jesus gives us the example.  Pray often and always.

God’s Plan: Homily for Saturday, July 8, 2017

Readings for Today

Sometimes when we read a story in the bible, it can result in a surprise for us.  Today’s first reading might be an example. Deception is used to further God’s plan.  The father is tricked.  The younger son receives the blessing.  But despite this deception, God’s plan is fulfilled.

When we think of God’s plan for us, it often is not clear until we reflect back over our lives. How is it then we discover God’s plan? Perhaps the best way is to put ourselves into the place where we will come to know God and what he wants.
