  • Jesus saw the city and wept

    We are so familiar with the entrance of Jesus into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday. It was a brief moment of triumph as people laid down their cloaks like a red carpet and waved palm branches with abandon. What a frenzy of welcome for this superhero. (Luke 19:35-38)

    Immediately after, Luke says Jesus wept over that city. “If this day you only knew what makes for peace, but it is hidden from your eyes.” Jesus left Jerusalem a week later, carrying a cross to Calvary hill where he was crucified as a criminal — and people wept.

  • ‘Come and See’

    On the feast day of St. Bartholomew on Aug. 24, I meditated upon the reading of the day, John 1: 45-51.

    Here we see Philip who found Nathanael and told him, “We have found the one Moses wrote about in the Law, and about whom the prophets also wrote — Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.”  Then Philip invited Nathanael, “Come and see.”

    Nathanael is identified as Bartholomew. Jesus called directly most of the Apostles. In the case of Bartholomew it was Philip who told him ‘come and see.’

  • Jesus’ actions drew criticism in chapters of the Bible

    Jesus said a lot of compelling and difficult things when He walked the earth.  A reading of the four Gospels in the New Testament portrays a man who had divine insight into the inner workings of the human soul.

  • Lay that donkey down

    A young boy and an old man were walking with a donkey when a group of people passed by.

    “Isn’t that ridiculous that no one’s riding that donkey,” one person said.

    So, the old man told the boy to ride the donkey.

    Another group of people passed by and someone said, “That’s terrible! Look at that young boy riding that donkey while the old man walks.”

  • It doesn’t matter where, the Lord is always with us

    Jonah 1: “Now the word of the Lord came to Jonah son of Amittai, saying,  ‘Go at once to Nineveh, that great city, and cry out against it; for their wickedness has come up before me.’ But Jonah set out to flee to Tarshish from the presence of the Lord. He went down to Joppa and found a ship going to Tarshish; so he paid his fare and went on board, to go with them to Tarshish, away from the presence of the Lord.”

  • This summer may be very hot, but it can be worse…

    In this month of July we have been through a very hot summer here in Carrollton. And almost everywhere in the United States, the weather stations have advised us to be careful when we go outside, to have water handy and to have functioning air conditioning units in our cars to be prepared for the hotter days.

    This reminds me that as Christians we have to be like the weather stations, informing and warning the people that if their ways of living do not change and they keep doing whatever they want they are heading to a very hot place, “Hell.”
