Are You Ready?

03/11/2016

It’s the Fourth Friday of Lent. Only two weeks until Good Friday.

Are you ready to meet Christ at the foot of the cross?

How do you do that?

Here’s one thing you can do.

Show mercy.

That’s one way we can lift up our cross.

Jesus taught Saint Faustina that we have three ways of expressing mercy toward our neighbors. By deed, word, and prayer.

That’s how we can share in the burden of the cross.

As soon as we suffer with Jesus, we need to prepare for the celebration of the Feast of Divine Mercy! Never a dull moment.

Hear today’s message from the shore of Lake Michigan in Gillson Park, Wilmette, Illinois:

I Hear Voices!

03/05/2016

Okay, I’ll admit it. Not always. Sometimes not too distinctly. But yeah… I do.

Do you? How do you know? Are you sure the voice is genuine?

To hear what I have to say about hearing voices, go here:

As I’ve gotten older, my hearing is not as good as it used to be. I blame lots of loud music and lack of discipline for contributing to my diminished hearing. Also likely to be a little age related.

Sometimes, I think my wife said something to me. Sometimes, I hear nothing and she’s been talking to me for half a minute. NO….. it’s not that selective spousal hearing! It’s genuinely physical “I can’t hear you!” hearing. Er… non-hearing.

Do You Hear the Voice of God?

Do you ever feel like you’ve had a divine revelation? Or not sure about it?

Do you ask God for inspiration? For guidance? Frustrated because you don’t get it? Not sure if the thoughts in your head are your thoughts or His thoughts?

How do you know?

Want some help?

First, you need to listen. You have to free up space in your noggin so that He can get in there with you.

Need something? Want something?

ASK!

He tells you to ask. So ask already.

But then… ya gotta listen!

How?

Immerse yourself in scripture. Or prayer. Keep reading. Keep praying. Get lost in it.

Answers will come to you.

Trust me.

If Your Brother Was Going to Kill You…

02/28/2016

My take on the brothers treating Joseph with such hatred and the tenant farmers who killed even the vineyard owner’s son. How much mercy could I muster?

Here’s the video:

Faith or Works? Or Both?

02/19/2016

Do you suppose God would rather punish you for all the crap you’ve done wrong or forgive you for acknowledging that you’ve been wrong and saying you’re sorry?

Can we help “the wicked” who have not acknowledged their sins and — totally unprepared — dies? Today? Here’s what I have to say.

 

It’s never the wrong time to pray the Chaplet of Divine Mercy.
