The second reading that Ratzinger gives to ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CrisisMagazine/~3/bSD8rQEtpH0/father-benedict-xvi-friend-jesus-christ

Homily @ Triduum: Touch BUKAS PALAD - April 13, 2017 ... expresses Jesus' identity: he has come to serve, not to be served. The Cross expresses Jesus' mission: he has come to lay down his life in order that others might have life. Such a life of self-giving is rooted in love of God to the end and embodied in love for others onto death. In washing his disciples' feet, Jesus presents them with more than an example to serve. He gifts them his mandate to live lives of service. Mandate from the Latin word "mandatum" which is the origin of "maundy" the ...http://bukas-palad.blogspot.com/2017/04/homily-triduum-touch.html

Martha, Mary and Lazarus JOURNEY - April 2, 2017 Today's Gospel reading was the story of Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead after he had been in the tomb for four days. Four days! The reading is full of how Jesus loved Lazarus and his sisters Martha and Mary. How they were very close friends.

I ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/journey2myself/CnIF/~3/rI9P_VajPwY/

The idea was to build a tower so high that the people who built it would be known over all the earth for their very high tower and remarkable city. They also felt that building this tower would unify them and keep them from being scattered. But their plan did not please God. The result of God's displeasure was he confounded their language.

It's Not a Quick Sale, It's About Relationships (Sunday Homily) BONFIRE OF THE VANITIES - January 15, 2017 One of the jobs I had, when I was in my 20s, was as a salesman in a men's clothing store. I had that job for about a year or so. It was a good job, and I learned some valuable lessons. The way it worked was that as customers came in, each sales person on the floor would be "up" – meaning, your turn to wait on a customer. And, if you made a sale, you got the commission on that sale. Of course, not everybody walking in would buy something; But a smart salesman knew that ...http://frmartinfox.blogspot.com/2017/01/its-not-quick-sale-its-about.html
