GOSPEL REFLECTION : Matt 25: 14-30

Jesus told his disciples this parable: “A man who was going on a journey called in his servants and entrusted his possessions to them. To one he gave five talents; to another, two; to a third, one—to each according to his ability. Then he went away.”

Reflect, today, upon all that God has given you. What are your “talents?” What have you been given to work with in life? This would include material blessings, circumstances, natural talents and extraordinary graces. How well do you use what you have been given? Do not compare yourself to others. Instead, use what you have been given for the glory of God and you will be rewarded for all eternity.

Lord, I give to You all that I am and thank You for all that You have given to me. May I use all that I have been blessed with for Your glory and for the up building of Your Kingdom. May I never compare myself to others, looking only to the fulfillment of Your holy will in my life.

I assure you, if you had faith the size of a mustard seed, you would be able to say to this mountain, “Move from here to there”, and it would move. Nothing would be impossible for you.

TRANSFIGURATION OF OUR LORD

ST. MICHAEL’S – Divine Liturgy & Blessing of Fruit: Tuesday, August 6th 10:00 AM

ST. ANNE’S – Divine Liturgy & Blessing of Fruit: Tuesday, August 6th 6:30 PM

The blessing of fruit on this day is the most beautiful & adequate sign of the final -transfiguration of all things in Christ. It signifies the ultimate fruitfulness of all creation in the paradise of God’s unending Kingdom of Life where all will be transformed by His glory. The Feast of the Transfiguration of Our Lord, God and Savior Jesus Christ commemorates the transfiguration of Christ on Mount Tabor, when our Lord appeared in His divine glory before the Apostles Peter, James, and John.

Sunday, June 23, 2019: Feast of the Most Holy Eucharist

The Sacrament of the Eucharist: A Holy & Sacred Celebration

The Eucharist is holy, a sacred celebration that brings us into close contact with the holiness of God. In the Eucharist the holiness of God is present to us in a unique way. We are made holy by the very act of participating in the Eucharist. Everything associated with the Eucharist is blessed and holy.

The Eucharistic community is holy, as it makes the Lord present in its very gathering and then rejoices in the Lord’s presence in the Eucharist. By receiving the Body and Blood of the Lord, we become one body, a holy offering to the Father for the salvation of the world.

The priest is holy, for through his prayer in our name, the bread and wine become the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ. Through him the sacrificial offering is made, and the community is united as one holy family.

The place in which we gather is holy, because the church building is consecrated to the worship of God and the service of the community.

The day of the Lord is holy, because the followers of Jesus have been called to keep Sunday a special day of Eucharistic prayer and rest in the name of the Lord.

Sunday, June 2, 2019: Sunday of the Holy Fathers

GOSPEL REFLECTION : John 17: 1-13

John’s Gospel, Chapter 17, is referred to as Jesus’ High Priestly prayer. It’s a long and beautiful prayer that would be worth reading in its entirety for reflection.

Reflect, today, on the Gospel of John and as you do, allow the Lord to speak to you. Hear Him calling you to perfect fulfillment and glory. But know that this is achieved by the embrace of your “hour.” The Father is calling you to follow in the footsteps of His Son by laying down your life in perfect obedience to the Father’s will. Embracing this cross is the path to Heaven and Jesus’ prayer provides all the grace you need to say “Yes.”
