The Lord of the house lived in luxury; the servants lived simple lives. But Jesus, the true Lord, chooses to serve. He invites us to do the same. A husband washes the feet of his wife and family when he uses his authority to serve them. Let the Lord serve you that you might serve others.
Jesus enters Jerusalem as the triumphal Messiah and true King of a kingdom of love and peace. But the kingdoms of the world dominate and destroy Him. Peter discovers that Jesus’ kingdom is the one that truly lasts, but we can only enter it by taking up our crosses. Will you deny Him, or will you follow Him through death to the Resurrection?

Four Things the Church is Serious About, part 1: The Church is serious about Mass on Sunday. Deliberately missing Mass on Sunday is a mortal sin. Why the rule? Christians gather to celebrate the Resurrection and to be fed by almighty God. The world can’t satisfy us because we were made for God. Don’t spiritually starve to death. Come to Mass on Sunday.

The Church is about conversion, a change of heart, and repentance. Repentance starts by remembering that you are going to die.

Now is the time to repent and believe in the Gospel. (13 Feb 2013)
