Love that Lasts — Reflection for the Sixth Week of Easter
Sixth Week of EasterWe celebrated Mother’s Day today and we heard the beautiful readings about God’s love for us at Sunday Mass. In many ways a mother’s love reflects God’s love, a love that isn’t dependent upon being loved back or any other factors. In other words, God’s love is unconditional. It is also eternal. There was never a time that we can imagine when God did not love. Pretty awesome. God’s love is eternal. You were always loved. You are loved right now, and you will never stop being loved. God’s love is a love that lasts.

Remaining Grafted onto Christ - Reflection for the Fifth Week of Easter
Fifth Week of EasterJesus implores us to remain in Him as He remains in us. What does it mean to remain? Does it mean to simply keep going to church and making sure the pews are filled? To remain does not mean to passively sit idle. Remaining is really an active participation. But how so? Will we take on this challenge?

Wounds as Places of Encounter - Reflection for the Second Week of Easter
On this Divine Mercy Sunday, may we allow the Lord’s mercy to wash over us. Oftentimes we see our wounds and brokenness and weaknesses as things to be ashamed and we want to hide them. But don’t forget, Our Lord rose with His wounds. It is by His wounds that we have salvation. Wounds are important. Wounds are places of encounter, and Our Lord waits to encounter you there. Invite the Lord into your woundedness and allow Him to bring great good and healing out of it. Jesus, I trust in You!

Though He was in the Form of God - Reflection for Holy Week
Palm Sunday of the Lord’s PassionWe have entered into the most sacred of weeks in the Church. Today we remember the day our Lord entered into Jerusalem for the last time only to leave the city as a criminal carrying His cross to Golgotha to be crucified. In his letter to the Philippians, St. Paul spoke of Jesus’ self-emptying. This emptiness is not a feeling of loneliness, depression, or void. This act of emptying is the expression of God’s infinite love for us. This self-emptying then gives great meaning to what our Lord cried out from the cross, ‘My God, my God why have you abandoned me?” In this act of self-emptying, Jesus stood in solidarity with the human race, and took on our sins so that we may be filled with His Father’s love and mercy.

The Grain that Dies - Reflection for the Fifth Week of Lent
Fifth Week of LentThis is the last week before Holy Week. In this past Sunday’s readings we hear about God’s covenant with His people, the Son learning obedience from what He suffered, becoming the “source of eternal life,” and only a grain that falls to the ground that dies will bear fruit. As disciples, we are asked to lose our lives. What does that mean? How can we lose our life and yet find it?
