What Are You Looking For?

01/05/2016

As we wind our way through the Christmas season and toward the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord…

As we contemplate the year that has passed and anticipate the year to come…

Recall the very first words Jesus speaks in the Gospel of John…

“What are you looking for?”

Jesus speaks these words to Andrew and John. They follow Him after John the Baptist identifies Jesus as “the Lamb of God.”

In another translation, Jesus asks “What do you want?”

So, I’m asking…

What are you looking for this year? What do you want?

What are you willing to do to get it?

What are you willing to sacrifice?

Andrew and John answer Jesus by asking him where He is staying. Jesus said “Come, and you will see.”

Are you willing to follow? Are you willing to take a risk?

What are you looking for? What do you want?

How important is it to you?

Five minutes. Take five minutes to contemplate your answers.

Thanks for taking some of your precious time today to read my thoughts. My intention is to post regularly and to include comments on the Daily Liturgy. I will also explore other matters of faith that catch my attention. I have begun posting video reflections (and other stuff) on YouTube.

I would appreciate your help and encouragement. This is something I’ve been called to do for some time. I’m finally embracing it. Father, forgive me for procrastinating.

An Epiphany Blessing for Your Home

01/04/2016

“O Lord, almighty God, bless this house that it may become a shelter of health, chastity, self-conquest, humility, goodness,  mildness, obedience to the Commandments, and thanksgiving to God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Upon this house and those who dwell in it may your blessing remain forever.”

Not my words, but a blessing that I read and said this morning. Take 60 seconds and do the same. Wherever you are. Right now.

Make it a blessed and happy day!
