Blessed Are the Poor in Spirit

Blessed Are the Poor in Spirit

“Blessed are the poor in spirit, theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”

Jesus is quite clear about who will go to heaven, so we explore what it means to be poor in spirit, and it has nothing to do with our bank accounts!

God provides through Scripture the exact meaning of what it is to be poor in spirit, and the encouragement we all need to have that attitude as we grow closer to Jesus and learn, from Him, who the Father is.

This week we think about how our families, parishes, communities, and world would be different if we all lived up to our baptismal vocation.

If all of us lived the Gospel and witnessed to Christ crucified, what would change?

Would the divisions among us be healed?

Would we be more understanding of one another?

Would we be able to live a life of virtue more easily?

Not Just a Servant

Not Just a Servant

When we think of servants, we typically picture people who are oppressed or in positions that powerful people take advantage of.

God has a different idea of what a servant is, and He calls us to this way of life and shows us through His only Son, how being a servant is actually one of the most honorable positions one can take.

He uses His servants to bring His light and message of Salvation to all the nations.

Dive deeper into this idea of sharing God’s light and salvation as His servant…

Mother of God

Mother of God

Mary had a little lamb…

Though this rhyme refers to St. Mary, this does not mean she is a sheep.

Mary gave birth to the Lamb. This means she is the Mother of God.

As confusing as that is to our non-Catholic brethren, we as Catholics understand it and accept it.

Just as Mary and Joseph accepted this great honor and responsibility.

How do we share in Mary’s motherhood?

This week, we explore her example and how it blesses and encourages us to be Brothers and Sisters of and in Christ.

Christmas Day

Christmas Day

Jesus came on Christmas Day as the fulfillment of the promises of God, to show His glory to all people, to be the light in the darkness, to redeem us from sin and death.

Do we realize the connections Christmas Day has with the prophesies of the Old Testament?

Or with our own personal journey of faith today?

It is the connection point between both!
