CM- 4.29.12  Acts 4. 8-12  Ps. 118. 1. 8-9, 21-23, 15, 18, 29 1st Jn. 3-1-2 Jn. 10.11-19

Cosmic connection:  cold but clearing skies, birds a-twitter.

Question of the day:How can I change th way I deal with a difficult person this week?

 

What we do, we do through the power of love in the Spirit of the Son,

We use the name of Jesus to caress a dying friend,

Asking for God’s to mercifully take her that so her peace may descend,

We extend ourselves to include all in our small world with the embracive love of the saving Son.

 

Gratitude, thanksgiving  honoring our supportive donors,

A Eucharist followed by a great meal,

Our gratitude turns to joy unconcealed

For we are the people who are athirst for the spirit’s running streams our owner

 

Jesus is our shepherd divine,

He is to be entered, the gate,

He  speaks to us through his voice his trait,

He knows his children and says we are His: ‘mine’.

 

The Lord is the good shepherd are leaders should imitate,

The children who follow Him innate.

Cm-4.23.12  Acts 6. 8-15  Ps. 119. 23-24, 26-27. 29-30  Jn. 6. 22-39

Cosmic connection:  dark clearing skies, warm for early a.m.

Question of the day:  What is my work of God for today?

 

Stephen O Stephen we must speak of you today,

One of the deacons so chosen for wisdom and insight,

Brought before the court by false witnesses to indict,

His face glowed like that of an angel they say.

 

The Psalm of the ‘law’ each action binding us closer to the Lord.

Meditating on the law, becomes my delight,

Knowing the way of the Lord’s precepts leads us to see the Lord’s wondrous deeds within our sight,

Remove, O Lord from us the way of falsehood  authenticity restored.

Are you looking to God for signs or because you ate and were filled?

The people wondered how He crossed the sea,

We are to work for God for things of eternal life and come to believe,

Jesus is the One God sent, to believe in Him the One so skilled.

 

We live by every word which comes from God,

Speak Lord your servant is listening, wipe away every facade.

CM-4.21.12   Acts 6.1-7  Ps. 33. 1-2, 4-5, 18-19  Jn/ 6. 16-21

Cosmic connection: clear dark skies a few stars.

Question of the Day:   What keeps you from trusting in Jesus?

 

Neglect one for the other,- is it right?

Here it is between the Word of God and serving the widows,

Select seven men to do this task while we shall devote ourselves to the Word our shadow.

Always keeping the Ways of the Lord in sight.

 

Mercy and trust, the Lord and us,

Bonds forged by lessons of life

By the word which cuts like a knife,

Giving us ample to discuss.

 

Jesus comes to them on the water,

Assuages their fears proclaims He is in the mess,

Calms us and stays with us alleviates our distress,

For God is the Master Potter.

 

Christ is risen

The Creator of all things all merciful seeking no division.

Cm-4.16.12   Acts 4. 23-31  Ps. 2.1-3, 4-7A, 7b-9  Jn. 3. 1-8

Cosmic connection:  Clear blue skies with very high light wavy clouds

Question of the day:How am I spurred to bold speaking?

 

Peter and John returned to their community

Telling them of what and happened and what they were told

They realized a new way of speaking was needed to speak up bold,

Hey trusted in the Holy Spirit to bring them from disunity to unity.

 

Let us take refuge in the Lord.

For at times in life the powerful  princes lay burdens on the backs of the afflicted,

And at surprising times the afflicted rise and the Word predicted,

An the poor become restored.

 

Let us be reborn in water and the  Spirit, again,

Born from above,

Children of love,

The Kindom bringing about through bold compassionate action  amen.

 

Since we have been raised with Christ, wek seek the things above,

Visions of thrones nd glory honor and praise listening to the dove.

Cm-4.15.12   Acts 4.32-35  Ps. 118.2-4, 13-15 22-24  1st Jn. 5/ 1-6  Jn. 20/ 19-31

 

Cosmic connection: dark chilly, overcast morning

 

Question of the day: What ways do I not trust in what others say about Jesus?

 

They were all of one heart and mind,

They held all things in common, no one was in need,

They care  for the needy, bending in the wind like a fragile reed,

For our neighbors might be deaf and blind.

 

“Give thanks to the Lord for his love endures forever,”

O Sunday of divine mercy hard pressed and falling,

At times not following the commandments our calling,

We reach out for Jesus the stone rejected, becoming our cornerstone foundation support for our endeavors

 

Jesus comes through a locked door and sends them peace,

Thomas  does not trust the word of others

He examines the wounds of Jesus now we embrace the wounds of all our sisters and brothers.

Now we ponder and pray that all division might cease.

 

We are blessed because we believe without seeing,

 Let is draw others to  so come to so believing

Cm-4.8.12  Easter morning meditation”

 

Cosmic connection: full moon, dark clear skies

 

Question of the day: What makes you the most grateful as you sing your alleluias today?

 

Wednesday we finished lent.

I wondered where it went,

But I remembered my Baptism and conversion 51 years before,

Pondered how I had learned to come to adore.

 

Thursday was the washing of feet and the institution of the Eucharist,

Memories flooded of my first reception after daily Mass for a year and only spiritual reception,

You could say I thirsted and was hungry, precious Body precious blood  perception,

He Lord and I reviewed a few wondrous deeds of the years past and the Evangelists.

 

Good Friday, solemn remembrance of the Passion,

Coming to realize how deep was the Lord’s compassion,

Thorns, crown, Kingdom, lamentation, betrayal what is truth darkness, light into fashion.

Reverence for the cross, meaning of suffering, why me, why not no ideal ration.

 

Holy Saturday,  a quiet tomb day  How much noise pollution do we have in our lives,

Do we have a truly silent place to go and find peace?

To rest ready for Sabbath serenity’s release?

After death abd resurrection, the Spirit continues to  survive.

 

Easter alleluias lead our spirit’s on high,

For our Lord on this day is victorious on high.
