February 22, 2015 - 1st Week of Lent
"Now is the Time" "Listen to the Good News" Thus our banner proclaim the beginning of Lent. And what is the Good News?" It's about God. It's about the God that Jesus calls Abba = Father, Dad. If it's not about the God who loves us completely, who forgives us relentlessly. and is on our side religiously - it's NOT "Good News"

We sit along on the dark. We know that we are not alone in the dark - we are with one another. Which is exactly what we should be doing during this Lent - making sure that our brothers and sisters are not alone. In the dark.
February 15, 2015 - 6th Ordinary Sunday
Jesus was an observant Jew. Yet he broke the law - He touched the leper. We are to be like Jesus - a fiercely observant member of our catholic community.

They "get it". Who? Peter's mother-in-law, 1:30, and the poor widow in the temple who contributed 2 coins, 12:40. The beginning of the public ministry and the last day of the public ministry. An arching of the Gospel of Mark. He came "to serve" and not "to be served".
January 18, 2015 - 2nd Ordinary Sunday
Different calls - the one to Samuel is unclear, the one from John the Baptist is very clear. God works that way sometimes. Prayer, discernment, action - these are the steps we are to take.

January 11, 2015 - Baptism of the Lord
Evangelization. It's spreading the "Good news". So what is the "good news" It's not about getting people to come to St Vincent's, or getting people excited about Christ - it getting people excited about God. Because God loves us and there's no power on earth that can make Him stop loving us.
