REFLECTION FOR 25/26 JULY 20

What do you treasure the most and how do you keep it from being lost or stolen?  In a peasant community the best safe was often the earth.  The man in the parable (Matthew 13:44) "went in his joy" to sell everything.  Why? Because he found a treasure worth possessing above all else he had.  He did not, however, have enough to buy the treasure.  Fortunately, he only needed enough to buy the field.  In a similar fashion, God offers his kingdom of righteousness, peace, and joy (Romans 14:17) as incomparable treasure at a price we can afford!  We can't pay the full price for the life which God gives us; but when we exchange our life for the life which God offers, we receive a treasure beyond compare.

WORDS & REFLECTIONS FROM FR. UJU

REFLECTION FOR 4 / 5 JULY 2020

As people of faith we know that God is with us and always walks with us every day, especially in these difficult days.  We will continue to pray for everyone especially those who are sick and for the families of those who have died because of this virus, not only in our community but everywhere.  Reflecting from Saint Paul's message in Romans 8-9-13 ......we should always pray for the Spirit of God to abide with us, never to live by the demands of the flesh.  Jesus also invites us in Matthew 11:25-30 ....that we should come to Him with all our burdens that He will make it easier for us.  Let us prayerfully surrender all our worries and burdens onto the Lord in this difficult time, He will save us.  

Reflection 8-9-20

Does the Lord Jesus seem distant when trials or adversity come your way?  It was at Jesus' initiative that were experienced fishermen, they feared for their lives.  While Jesus was not with them in the boat, he, nonetheless watched for them in prayer.  When he perceived their trouble he came to them on the sea and startled them with his sudden appearance.  Do you look for the Lord's presence when you encounter difficulty or challenges?
