Jesus tells us that he wants to set the world ablaze with fire. He wants to cleanse the world of that which is evil through the purifying flame. 

 

Signs of Healing

Prayer helps us to grow closer to Jesus, who longs to heal us. Healing can be a slow process that is difficult to see unfolding, so we must trust in God through this process, and embrace the opportunities and the signs that He provides us with. And, when we are whole, we mustn't turn back to our former ways, but utilize our freedom to fully love God and others.

We are not meant to find others to blame for our woundedness; we are called to seek healing through Jesus Christ.

We are all wounded in one way or another. There is beauty in this though because Jesus suffered while he was on earth. When we feel the pangs of our suffering, we must embrace it and look to Jesus for our healing, in hope that something good will come out of it. 

Types of Woundedness

There are several types of wounds, formed in different ways, that impact our lives. We must sit at the feet of Christ and allow Him into our hearts to heal our wounds, regardless of their type. 

Allowing God to Heal Us

Having received the stain of original sin, we are prone to sin in our own lives. Our sinfulness leads to woundedness of our hearts and of others'. In our woundedness, we must run to the Lord, not to sin, and allow Him to heal us. 

Just as Jesus sent out his disciples, two by two, with nothing but the cloaks on their backs and the sandals on their feet, so we are sent out into the world. We are called to depend on each other and to rely on God for our every need, as we go forth on mission for the Kingdom of God. 

We return to the Sundays in Ordinary Time and walking through Luke's Gospel.  

Jesus sets his face towards Jerusalem and challenges those who wish to follow Him.

Where is my level of commitment to going where Jesus leads?

Eucharistic Revival

Homily from Sunday, June 20th - The Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ

 

With today's feast, we begin a 3-year Eucharistic Revival throughout our nation.  Cardinal Ratzinger points us to 3 reasons why this Solemnity can help us.

Homily from Ascension -

In light of our Diocese's Go Make Disciples evangelizing initiative, it's vital for all the faithful to embrace the Church's mission to evangelize.  This is not exclusive to clergy and religious, but to all the Baptized.
