Does My Life Reflect Christ?

Virtues

Thirty-second Sunday
in Ordinary Time

If you are a Christian, your life should reflect something of Christ. Are you radiating Christ in your family … workplace … relationships … school? In your group of friends, are you transforming your friends to Christ, or are you being transformed by them into something you are not supposed to be?

What do you want me to do for you?

Thirtieth Sunday in Ordinary Time

If we cant see who we are in the eyes of God, or because if we have been so wounded in our life experience, that we have given up on the hope of being the saints.  Of being excellent and noble and pure, free from unhealthy attachements.  In short, if we have lost the hope to be who we are as children of God then we are like Bartimaeus, on the road, paralyzed and begging.  And Christ comes to give us life, as he comes to give Bartimaeus his life. Because for Bartimaeus receiving sight was to receive a whole new horizon.

Jesus_Heals_Bartimaeus“He threw aside his cloak, sprang up, and came to Jesus.  Jesus said to him in reply, “What do you want me to do for you?”  The blind man replied to him, “Master, I want to see.” Jesus told him, “Go your way; your faith has saved you.” Immediately he received his sight and followed him on the way.”

What am I Asking from God?

Twenty-Ninth Sunday in Ordinary Time

All of my desires are ended, and now I can begin to think about myself alive in Christ, so that what I desire doesn’t mean anything anymore.  The only thing that matters is what God wants for my life.

Jesus, James, and John“Whoever wishes to be great among you will be your servant; whoever wishes to be first among you will be the slave of all.”
