cm-2.28.13


CM-2.28.213  Jer. 17.5-16  Ps. 1.1-3, 3, 4, & 6  Lk. 16,19-31

Comic connection: sunny blue skies birds beginning

Question of the day: How might I be persuaded to repent?

 

Trusting in the Lord who is our hope,

Jeremiah strongly curses those who rely on human help or the flesh,

‘Tortuous is the human heart’ only god can know the human mind and refresh.

Rewarding each according to his/her ways and deeds coming to the end of his rope.

 

‘Happy are those who hope in the Lord’

The metaphor given is where you are planted,

The wicked are like chaff hoping for a transplant,

While those planted by running streams leaves never fading issuing a harmonic chord.

The rich man , Lazarus and and Abraham,

The chasm such that no one might crossover,

God brings in life the good and bad,

How might we be persuaded to repent, without having to experience torment from our Abraham?

Cm-2.25.13  Dan 9. 4B-10  Ps. 79. 8,9,11&13  Lk. 6. 36-48                                                                                                                       

Cosmic connection: blue sky day a bit chilly

Question of the day:

We admit our sin and seek mercy and compassion,

Not to make us feel better but to honor God’s name,

Then our faces will not be filled with shame:-thanks to the Lord’s passion.

 

‘Lord do not deal with us according to our sins.’

We ask for help and freedom of prisoners for the glory of the name,

Then we will give thanks forever declaring praise through all generations,

Pardon us, O Lord, give us back our peace, everyone wins.

 

Here we go again another rung on the ladder of perfection:

We are to be merciful as our heavenly Father is merciful,

Also we are called to stop judging,

Allow others to be human and do a bit of fudging,

Then our hearts will take on a new direction.

 

If we forgive gilts shall come to us, our treasure,

Pressed down and running over in good measure.

                                                                                                       ,

cm-2.23.13


Cm-2.23.13  Dt. 26.16-19  Ps. 119 1-2, 4-5,7-8  Mt. 5.43-48

Cosmic connection: Damp gray morning after a rainy night birds a-twitter.

Question of the day: How perfect is perfect?

I heard there were 3000 laws in the Old Testament, – a school.

Thank God, in the New Testament, the law is boiled down to the Golden Rule.

Although today we are called to love our enemies and those who persecutors, a tough call indeed.

But this Way is the way of love and peace.

But my Beloved: – you gave me a rebel’s heart,

How can I be perfect?  Quiet my child, all things are possible with God.’

Cm-2.20.13  Jon.3. 1-10  Ps. 513-4, 12-13, 18-19  Lk. 11. 29-32

Cosmic connection: cold gray skies promising clearing quiet

Question of the day:  How might I c hose my words today so others might discover God?

 

Jonah walks three days across the enormous city,

Calling for the people to repent,

From actions we regret or have remorse for we relent,

Sack cloth and ashes are the sign of their penitence across the city

 

Seeking God’s compassion and pity.

No one wants to be destroyed,

Rather in this generation to be employed

Deep sorrow for that which was wrongly done, without a committee.

 

Jesus chastise those in this generation,

Criticizing them for seeking a sign,

On His Way He wishes to keep them in line,

The Queen of the south will come to condemn no food or water or even hydration.

In Jesus we have one greater than Solomon here,

One who is able to our cries bends an ear.

ACm-2.19.13  Isaiah55. 10-11  Ps.34. 4-5, 6-7, 16-17, 18-19  Mt. 6.7-15

Cosmic connection: predawn dark threatening skies quiet chilly

Question of the day: Which phrase of this prayer speaks to me this day?

The cycle of nature is impressed on us in the two verses of Isaiah.

Rain waters the earth and returns to the skies to water again,

So does the Word of God spoken and achieving the purpose for which it was sent.

It seems the purpose is to soften our hearts, nurturing healing and inspiring actions to help us on our journey steep as the Himalayas.

Everyone has fears,

We call upon God and He definitely hears,

Then we thank, extol and glorify His name of good cheer,

If we are just, we get a listening ear from God to whom we become dear.

Jesus gives us a seven step petitioner prayer,

Teresa of Avila, – doctor of the Church teaches much about this prayer,

Each petition is revealed to us by her wisdomic care,

If we take time to ponder these petitions our hearts will be repaired.

One does not live on bread alone,

But on every word spoken from the mouth of God by such hearts known.

CFM-2.18.13  Lev.19. 1-2, 11-18  Ps. 19. 8, 9, 10, 15  Mt. 25.31-46

Cosmic connection: a bit foggy, chilly gray skies

Question of the day: What can I do today to be more alert to the needs around me?

The conundrum of the Golden rule.

SImply the law of love,

Given in Leviticus and Matthew twice in this day sent from above,

“To do unto others as you would have them do unto you’,  the Word’s school.

The Leviticus commandments are to refresh our souls

They give wisdom to the simple, rejoicing every heart,

May our words find favor, O Lord, as we send them from the start

Hoping your message will make all people whole.

Matthew looks around and gets disturbed by the violence in the world he sees.

So he makes up a parable about the sheep and the goats

Lord have mercy on the goats, having not serve those in need with not even a coat sending them the other direction their penalty he believes.

Now is the day of salvation,

Let us follow this rule let it become a fixation.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           Cm-2.2

CM-2.27.13  Dt. 26. 4-10  Ps. 91.1-2, 10-11, 12-13, 14-15  Rom. 10. 8-13  Lk. 4. 1-13

Cosmic connection: Blue skies a few clouds, warmer, bird chirping

Question of the day:  For what actions of God do I want to give thanks?

Moses speaks to us again reviews the plan of salvation,

Of course there was oppression and afflicting in the land of Egypt,

But the people needed to maintain their love of God alone,-. in heart encrypted,

Therefore this day we bring our first fruits and bow in th4 presence of us we take time to enjoy creation.

Where is your heart? Professing Jesus is Lord?

Are we all one with our diversity?

Or does working with other become an adversity

Since the Lord is our refuge and fortress we call upon the name in one accord.

Temptation is a craving for something which is wrong,

‘Everyone goes though it but must choose to do right,

Jesus is tempted by food and by power finding no light,

We are not to put God to the test but always do what is best.

‘One does not live by bread alone’

But on every word which comes from the mouth of God by which we are known
