CM-8.9.13   Dt. 4. 32-40  Ps. 77. 12-13, 14-15, 16 &21  Mt. 16. 24-29

Cosmic connection:  gray thick cold overcast, quiet chilly

Question of the day: What wonder is Jesus working in my life right now?

Moses in Deuteronomy is guided to ponder the great things the Lord has done in his life.

Hearing the voice of God, seeing the fire without consumption,

Being led out of slavery into the Promised Land to a new redemption,

Guiding your people to follow the law and live without strife.

We too must ponder

What is this day our way of self-denial?  In any case?

For in that is our I our personal cross which we must embrace

For if not from the good path we stray, we wander.

Discipleship demands embracing our cross.

That is what it means to come after the One whom we want to follow.

Even though our cross might be difficult to swallow.

 

Blessed are we who accept persecution for the sake of righteousness

Then we shall abide in the Kingdom at our completion in uprightness.

ST. DOMINIC.S FEAST DAY.

Cosmic connection: gray overcast morning promising to clear to sunny skies

Question of the day: Who is Jesus for me today?

To praise, to bless, and to preach,

How beautiful the feet of those bearing Good News.

Bring the joy of salvation as one of life’s clues,

To encourage, admonish, and to teach.

 

Let us all proclaim God’s marvelous deeds to all the nations.

Dominic guarded humility and chose voluntary poverty

Never did this saintly man do anything improperly,

Purity of life, joyful friar, Gospel man of prayer, no sensation.

 

The Gospel reading is the missioning of the disciples, – sent.

Told to baptize everyone in unconditional love, the Trinity. – Sacrament.

Preach always the preciousness of the Word guiding how our lives are spent.

O Christian, give tribute to Yahweh, praise honor and glory tell us Spirit what it all meant.

CM-8.7.13  Num. 13. 1-2, 25-14.1, 26A-29A, 34-35  Ps. 106. 6-7AB, 13-14, 21-22, 23  My. 15. 31-29

Cosmic connections Cool to be clearing quiet early morning

Question of the day: What am I persistent about in my prayer?

It is pre-dawn time after a good night’s sleep.

Once more I am home… from hospitalization,

At this point in life health has become a fixation,

I must reconnoiter my room clean out and ready for the final journey in no hurry striving for prayer ever Faithful and deep.

With a heart filled with gratitude, remembering things that have happened,

Grateful to the Lord for all the times He has favored me,

Many anecdotes shall dribble off my fingers to tell, the cravings in my desert,

The fence-riding time when I became a convert,

The happy times when I went on a shopping spree.

In the Gospel we have an example of a woman persistent in prayer.

Three times Jesus refuses her request,

She is not praying for herself; Jesus is testing her faith, loyalty

Letting her prayer become her poetry,

Showing by her faith that she really is one who compassionately daily cares.

‘A great prophet has arisen in our midst,’

Te helps those around her she cannot resist.

CM-7.28.13  Gen. 18. 20-32  Ps. 138. 1-2, 2-3, 6-7, 7-8  Col. 2. 12-14  Lk. 11. 1-13

Cosmic connection:  clear light blue skies, chilly early morning cold, quiet

Question of the day: For whom might I ask God’s mercy in my prayer today?

Abraham in Genesis is bargaining with the Lord over the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah.

He is persistent beyond a doubt,

For the innocent Abraham barters his clout.

The Lord could refuse just because of Abraham’s verbal plethora.

‘Lord when I call for help you answer me.’

I thank and praise you Lord for your goodness and mercy towards me.

You have obliterated my sins,

Nailing them to the cross where everyone wins.

The Lord will complete all that He wants for my sojourn on this earth.

My beloved in this life is my partner as I become the dancer.

The Our Father is Jesus’ lesson plan for teaching prayer to his disciple.

There are seven petitions in Luke’s rendition,

Asking, seeking and knocking strong in our tradition,

Prayer then becomes fruitful when persistent and vital.

Teresa of Avila furthers in lesson in her ‘way of Perfection’ for which she become a doctor of the Church. entitled.

Cm-7.27.13  Ex. 24. 3-8  Ps. 50. 1B-2, 5-6, 14-15  Mt. 13. 24-30

Cosmic connection:  Very thick fog to burn off, one caw.

Question of the day:  How can I safeguard the gifts God has planted in my life?

Beauty pleasing and impressive, attractiveness,

Where do I see it how do I know, the colors of a rose,

The filaments of the dandelion, the leaf I blow,

But once I see it I know I have been touched, a presence is revealed.

The covenant practice is a bloody beauty, but necessary for the people,

Our sacrifice is one our praise, – gratitude our attitude,

Appreciating all beauty our hearts tickled with delight.

The Gospel is another parable of the weeds and the wheat.

They each are nurtured with growth until the harvest,

Then the wheat will be gathered into the Lord’s barn a place of Beauty.

Praise and bless the Lord for this beautiful day.

CM-7.25.13  2nd Cor. 4.7-15  Ps. 126/ 1BC-2AB,2CD=3, 4-5, 6  Mt. 20. 20-28

Cosmic connection”  cool, and crisp, quiet and still, moon visible, warm one

Question of the day: What request would I want Jesus to grant his people today?

No matter what we are being given up to death every day,

In order that the life of Jesus may be seen through our Christian actions.

From this we want to not be given up to distraction,

All this in everyone that we all might draw forth thanksgiving to the

Glory of God.

‘Those who sow in tears shall come back rejoicing.’

Wondrous deeds the Lord has done, we are glad for sure,

A day of rest to recuperate then we shall harvest our goodness

continuing to endure.

Our praise, relief gladness voicing.

Did your mother ever do something to embarrass you before others?

Drinking the chalice and sitting in the highest place?

Yes they may drink the chalice

No they shall not sit high what was she thinking,

But mothers we forgive even if they lead us into disgrace.

I chose you from the world to go forth and bear fruit,

As the word of God forms you and continues through service from within to take root.

Cosmic connection” clears blue skies; full moon in the west crows a- cawing

Question of the day: How can I make my heart a better environment for receiving the word of God?

The people grumbled

God heard and replied

By giving them manna or bread in the morning,

And quail their meat in the evening

Then they shall know who their God is and not stumble.

 

‘The Lord gave them bread from heaven

They were demanding in the dessert

They watched the skies morning and evening alert

They did not have to cook with leaven.

 

Today we have the parable of the sower,

Which applies to differing types of soil,


How we open our hearts each morning hardened or open brought to a boil

For it is the Spirit who is the grower.
