Fr. Bob's Corner - January 31, 2021

Posted on January 29, 2021 in: Pastor

        I’ve always found that the truest friends are the ones who challenge us to be better people.  The ones who are there during the tough times, sure.  But the ones who also aren’t afraid to tell us how it is and help us to change for the better.  This is also true in our faith life.  If we aren’t challenged in our faith, then we can’t be better Christians.  We can’t grow in holiness.  And holiness is nothing more than knowing the love of God.  It’s not floating or glowing or any of that.  It’s simply ha...

Fr. Bob's Corner - January 24, 2021

Jonah is one of the worst prophets in all of the Old Testament.  God asks him to be a prophet.  He says no.  He tries to escape God (hilariously) and goes on a voyage.  He then is thrown overboard after the crew mates on the ship he is on discover that the reason why they are having such bad weather is because God is hounding Jonah to do His will.  He is then swallowed by a large fish (a whale).  He is then cast onto the shore of the Ninevites who are the worst people.  Finally Jonah agrees to do His will and go through Nineveh telling them to repent.  After doing that, Jonah goes up...

God speaks to us.  He does!  It’s an undeniable truth.  The incredible volume of this world and it’s problems makes it nearly impossible to hear Him. Notice where Samuel is when God calls to him.  He’s sleeping in the Temple.  We can all sympathize with that.  But he has been spending time with the Arc of the Covenant - the dwelling of God.  While he was in prayer, he passed out.  Samuel is so relatable.  He’s not perfect.  He can’t stay up all night with the holy dwelling of God.  Think of even the holy Apostles in the garden with the ...

This weekend we celebrate the Baptism of our Lord.  His Baptism was not like the one John the Baptism was performing.  Our Lord was Baptized so that we could see the difference between the two - John the Baptism Baptizing for repentance and Jesus’ was a Baptism in the Holy Spirit, where you hear the words of the Father called you His “Beloved”.  Beloved.  To be loved.  Our Baptism allows us to be loved.  It is the simplest explanation of Baptism - Simply to be loved by God.  Every time we use holy water to bless ourselves - a reminder of that.  Every time we genu...
