Why do bad things happen to good people? Why did typhoon Lando claim almost 30 lives and effect millions of others? Jesus asks us, "do you think they were more guilty than everyone else?" Was it because of their sins they died? Did Jesus die for his own sins or for yours and mine? So the next time you ask God why there are starving children, be ready to let him ask you, who has the capacity to help, "Indeed, why are there starving children?" Please continue to pray for the victims of typhoon Lando.

You can read the signs of weather and wind, but chose to ignore the moral signs of good and evil revealed to your conscience? Ok little man, go ahead and ignore the call to repent. Don't change. Don't be surprised then when a typhoon of evil or hail storm of hurt rains down on you, for the worst punishments are the effects of our own ill choices. Choose now to change, while you are still aware of the signs of right and wrong, or the day will soon come when your conscience will hand you over to the judge and the judge will hand you over to prison.

Today I saw once again Jesus' thirst for souls. During prayer I asked Him how He wanted me to serve a particular person. I felt such an urgency on His part, "I want to be closer to her. Do not withhold teaching about me. Thin is the veil that lies between Me and souls, how I want to tear it away!" I immediately contacted her and asked if we could talk. I shared with her about the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus that beats with love for her. She said she wants to know Jesus more and receive Him in Holy Communion, I gave her a rosary from the Sisters, which we prayed together, and initiated instruction. Later she said, "I was praying for a sign from God. You're probably the sign I was looking for." Christian! Remember you are a sign of Jesus Christ! Be not afraid to share His supreme Mercy with souls!

Today I was overjoyed to hold a deformed little toddler at the Mother Teresa shelter. I kept shouting in her language, "Magayon ka talaga!" (You are so very beautiful!) She grabbed my hand so hard I thought she was going to squeeze it off and started laughing and screaming with glee. I turned around and the women who watch over them were weeping in a moment of beauty and grace. God makes us beautiful by the way he loves us. He does not love us because we are beautiful.

As a bird was flying through the sanctuary and many gathering outside, I gave a homily on how you need to have a birdwatching course to recognize a bird, the same way you need Jesus in the Eucharist to recognize God in daily life, in the poor, in prayer, in your neighbor/family. Then I come home, miles away from the church, and there, trapped in my room, is the same kind of bird I saw minutes before. What is God trying to tell me? Comments please....

Keeping watch over the Church, staying awake for the coming of Christ is difficult. Pray that in the hour of visitation you will be found ready and waiting for the Master. #holydogs #keepwatch

Headed to one of the most beautiful beaches in Southeast Asia in Caramoan, Philippines. Though it is breathtaking beauty it pales in comparison to the beauty of a soul reconciled to God. A person will receive a first and general confession of their whole life. Authentic beauty is given to those who desire it.

Jesus uses fiction: parable of the sower, prodigal son, talents, to explain a deeper truth about non-fiction. The capacity to tell stories, speak indirectly, use analogies, humor, art, or apparently non-religious things to impart God is not a deficiency, or a lack of fervor, but reveals a depth of understanding and fullness of love. Don't be one dimensional people. It's not the real thing. Have a cigar, a glass of wine, watch Shakespeare, read the funnies, go to a museum, take/teach a physics class, go hunting, play chess, dance like a diva and sing like a star, offering it all to God who gives all these things as a parable for how much he loves and how he loves you. Keep it real.

It can happen to anyone. Even a few times a day we might forget about what is so important and get stuck on the little things. Whenever we become the center of it all its easiest then to forget about love of neighbor. Let Christ be center, the fulcrum, the goal, the means, and measure and then we won't get off track.

✔️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.
