✔️Sleep ✔️Eat ✔️Hygiene ✔️Exercise ✔️Love ✔️Pray ✔️serve ✔️life So if you're always staying up late, not eating right, forgetting to wash or exercise, you think you need someone to talk to about how imbalanced and disordered you feel? Pray and tell it to God? Medicating the dysfunction with food and drink and.....Hey lazy bones, discipline! Order your life! Then when it's time to pray you will actually meditate, and your socializing won't just be you needing on others, and you will serve instead of needing service.

We always ask God to fill us, give us, show us. Today's encounter with the rich young man tells us we need to ask him to empty us, take from us, remove what we know, for unless he empty us, we will never be able to receive what he has to give us - eternal life.

I am a life coach. That's what a Formator of priestly candidates does, speaking life, breathing encouragement, and not infrequently having awkward conversations addressing sinfulness and correcting dysfunction. Yesterday we talked about addressing issues of insecurity and cultural inferiority. We used an excellent article to do this http://ift.tt/1a0vMGs Please pray for seminarians and priests caring for them.

His words weren't unique, he didn't look so different, didn't have anything remarkable about him but there is one thing they just could t shake, couldn't figure out. This man had just spent three days inside a whale. That was just too weird, too astonishing to be ignored. He should have been dead or at least mutilated or traumatized. So when he said, "40 days more and Nineveh will be destroyed," they could not help but listen and repent. Jesus spent three days dead. So when he rose they couldn't help but listen. It is the same with us. If you rise from death, from living a dead miserable life and you rise with great peace and joy, that itself is the most powerful message. Holiness is the loudest sermon. Be raised up in your thoughts, words, and in noble elevated love, and others will not be able to ignore the power that has worked in your life.

Mary's Motherhood is not merely biological. Jesus says of her "my mother is the one who hears the Word of the Lord and keeps it." Only 7 chapters earlier in the very same Gospel it was said of her, "Blessed is she who believed the Word of the Lord would be fulfilled." Thus Jesus declares her true Motherhood is spiritual, the very Mother, or bearer, bringer, of God.

Gardening is hard work? Even more laborious is tending the soil of your soul. It more than just knowing you want to be fruitful, or having some flighty intention of doing right. It is deciding to make the daily, faithful, tough decisions to remove the world's brambles, to weed out sin, to guard against devilish creatures, be vigilant against the pestilence of temptation, to funnel the waters of grace into the right place, and to accept the manure of humble duty, but most importantly to care for charity, which can be like a weak sprout at times easily bent by winds of caprice and scorched by the suffocating heat of the passions. Then, even when enjoying the harvest to be ready to plow away again. Yet in all this the great joy is the you labor with God, and in the enclosed garden of His Love, enjoying the friendship of other laborers who have also been called. #ParableOfTheSewer #ChooseDailyToBeFaithful #EternalHarvestOfCharity

Things you will not regret when life is through: how much you prayed, loved, and suffered for him. Things that you may regret: sin, missed opportunities, lacking to love. #YOLO #CarpeDiem #GodIsAll

His teachings, parables, miracles, actions, and even the Cross and glorious Resurrection do not answer life's questions. They make you ask yourself questions. God loves you. What are you going to do about it? Are you going to deny yourself and follow him? What are you willing to give, to suffer, to love? Your reply in this life will show how much and how deeply you enjoy his love for all eternity or how you spite and reject, and suffer it for eternal shame. You have been asked. Invited. The rest is entirely up to you...

Seminarian: "What are you going to do today Fr Sam now that the seminarians are gone for a few days?" Me: "Nothing! Well not exactly. Right now I'm going to go back to my bed and lay in it until I've caught up on rest. Then I'm going to veg with Jesus in the chapel the rest of the day and he will show me what I am doing, or not doing."

Unmasked. Who are you? Do you even know? The first time I ever really prayed I remember hearing my real voice for the first time. It wasn't strong, confident, smart, or funny. It was just...me. God loves you as you truly are, with no fig leaves, masks, foolish pride or silly games. Set down the weapons. Make it real. Only the love of God, the vulnerable, undecorated, unpolished love that sees into your inmost self and loves you as you truly are. Prayer is simply letting him in. Being real. Watching walk through your walls and reveal the greatest truth about you: YOU ARE LOVEABLE. Not for who you think you should be. Not that body that you think you should have. Not that charming perfect thing you'd like to be - just...you...

This. What encouragement of priests looks like. Got in the mail from a person who is always building me up as a priest. By lifting up someone who lifts up thousands you have lifted us all up. #GodRewardYou #PrayForPriests
