Get into the ring! How this works...

This is easy! Each week on Thursday I post my homily main focus for preaching this coming Sunday. What I am hoping for is a reaction from people in the pews. Does my "focus" connect with your daily life, faith, and experience? Or not? Either affirm the direction I am going in (by giving me an example from your life) or challenge me, ask for clarification! Questions are the best! Reaction rather than reflection is what I'm looking for here. Don't be afraid, get in the ring. Ole!

What is your suffering saying?

It is the manner of our suffering, the way we endure or persevere the tough stuff,  that speaks most loudly of our relationship to Jesus Christ.   "No whining on the yacht" is the classic line one of our parishioners has coined meaning that our complaining about discomfort is "oxymoronic" - doesn't make sense.   What our complaining does reveal is our level of or lack of connection to Jesus Christ and His Kingdom.

So, how's your suffering?  What is it revealing about your friendship with Jesus?  Or lack thereof?
