Be Little to Hear From God A SPIRITUAL JOURNEY - July 15, 2015 Today is the memorial of St. Bonaventure. In the Gospel acclamation, Matthew 11.25, Jesus exclaimed: "Blesses are you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, you have revealed to little ones the mysteries of the Kingdom." Again, to hear God, we need to be childlike, passive, and waiting. People do not find God because they want God to show himself to them. God being so much greater than us, we need to be little before him to stand a better chance ...http://journeyofimperfectsaint.blogspot.com/2015/07/be-little-to-hear-from-god.html

Always Timely Call A SPIRITUAL JOURNEY - July 8, 2015 I still remember the witty saying "Everything changes but the avant-garde" I came across a long time ago. I can now also say that "Everything changes but the love of God." Today's Gospel acclamation (Mark 1.15) at Mass reads: The kingdom of God is at hand: repent and believe in the Gospel. Like the avant-garde, this call remains as fresh as ever.http://journeyofimperfectsaint.blogspot.com/2015/07/always-timely-call.html

Time for Weeping A SPIRITUAL JOURNEY - June 27, 2015 Today's Gospel acclamation at Mass, Matthew 8.17: "Jesus took away our infirmities and bore our diseases" (as prophesied by Isaiah). Jesus must be our first victim soul, who suffered for our sins for our salvation. Seeing how uncaring and ungrateful the average sinner is today, it's most appropriate for us to pause and weep for them and ourselves. Seeking God's forgiveness is urgently our first order of business.http://journeyofimperfectsaint.blogspot.com/2015/06/time-for-weeping.html

Authentic or False A SPIRITUAL JOURNEY - June 25, 2015 Today's Gospel acclamation, John 14.23, at Mass read: Whoever loves me will keep my word, and my Father will love him and we will come to him. Suppose that Jesus was the Son of God, then he really meant what he said and you can accept that. Now suppose that an ordinary human had said it, you'll know immediately that the speaker must not know what he's talking about. Read the Gospels through and you'll find Jesus not ...http://journeyofimperfectsaint.blogspot.com/2015/06/either-authentic-or-false.html

The Heart Belongs to God A SPIRITUAL JOURNEY - June 22, 2015 Today's Gospel acclamation at Mass, Hebrews 4.12: The word of God is living and effective, able to discern reflections and the thoughts of the heart. The mind has its own intelligence, but God always speaks to the heart. While our intelligence remains fixed, our heart grows in knowledge as God teaches us. Also, the heart directly affects the mind. When the heart is pure, the mind is pure; if it's filthy, ...http://journeyofimperfectsaint.blogspot.com/2015/06/the-heart-hears-and-thinks.html

The Gospel acclamation, "If then you were raised with Christ , seek what is above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God" (Colossians 3.1), reminded me that we have been raised with Christ. In the Gospel reading from John 16, the disciples said to Jesus, "Now we realize that you know everything and that you do not need to have anyone question you. Because ...http://journeyofimperfectsaint.blogspot.com/2015/05/to-follow-jesus.html

Jesus Not to Be Dismissed A SPIRITUAL JOURNEY - May 16, 2015 I attended a local church nearby for morning Mass. The Gospel acclamation, John 16.28, read: I came from the Father and have come into the world; now I am leaving the world and going back to the Father. The Communion verse, John 17.24, read: Father, I wish that where I am, those you gave me may also be with me, that they may also see the glory that you gave me. I found these two sayings of Jesus impossible to dismiss; we must believe that Jesus knew ...http://journeyofimperfectsaint.blogspot.com/2015/05/jesus-not-to-be-dismissed.html

The Lord Seeking Union A SPIRITUAL JOURNEY - May 6, 2015 Two verses of the Gospel reading from John 15 formed today's Gospel acclamation: R emain in me, as I remain in you, says the Lord, whoever remains in me will bear much fruit. Jesus invites us to remain in him. As if this is not beautiful enough, he wants to remain in us! To be in each other is to be one, so the Lord is seeking union with us here. Naturally, in union much fruit will be produced.http://journeyofimperfectsaint.blogspot.com/2015/05/the-lord-seeking-union.html

Unique Christian Joy A SPIRITUAL JOURNEY - April 22, 2015 Today's Gospel acclamation at Mass, John 6.40, reads: Everyone who believes in the Son has eternal life, and I shall raise him on the last day, says the Lord . This is enough to make the Christian feel joyful. Many Christians don't realize that God wants to give us his joy! He wants us to be happy! If we live for Christ, this joy becomes our strength, overcoming all our sorrows. This gift from God is pure; it frees us, ...http://journeyofimperfectsaint.blogspot.com/2015/04/unique-christian-joy.html

God Sets the Purpose A SPIRITUAL JOURNEY - April 14, 2015 Today's Gospel acclamation at Mass, John 3.14-15: "The Son of Man must be lifted up, so that everyone who believes in him may have eternal life." The Communion antiphon, based upon Luke 24.46, 26: "The Christ had to suffer and rise from the dead, and so enter his glory, alleluia." I italicized "must" and "had to" in these two statements because I realize that I must or have to go through the various experiences and trials in life so as to accomplish the ...http://journeyofimperfectsaint.blogspot.com/2015/04/god-sets-purpose.html

Easter Singing, and a Thought That Occurred to Me THE SPIRIT'S SWORD - April 6, 2015 ... what it comes to: as long as there are people out there worse than myself, I am golden. This point was driven home when I visited my mother in the afternoon and had dinner with my extended family. One of my elder sisters was there. Puff told this story, and sis looked over at me and drawled: "By any chance, did you sing Leonard Cohen's 'Hallelujah' for the gospel acclamation?" Me: I would never do that. Why? Is that ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/TheSpiritsSword/~3/Hb7jC20bZVQ/easter-singing-and-thought-that.html
