Moses & God

I’m sure you know the story of the life of Moses – how he set the children of Israel free and they journeyed to the Promised Land. But allow me to briefly retell it so you can see what God showed me.
Israel was in slavery to Egypt for hundreds of years until God sent Moses to set His people free. Pharaoh released them after God demonstrated His power through ten miracles. The Israelites were not only set free, but they also left with the “wealth of the wicked.” (See Proverbs 13:22.) All the gold and silver!

THE CALL

The Call
God knew you as He knew Jeremiah, long before you were born or even conceived. He thought about you and planned for you. When you feel discouraged or inadequate, remember that God has always thought of you as valuable and that He has a purpose in mind for you.

8th SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME

"Can any of you by worrying add a single moment to your life-span?" No, indeed we can't. But evidence does suggest that worrying can subtract time from our life span! Clearly, we are not meant to worry. It's not healthy and it's not useful.
But for many of us, it's quite difficult not to be anxious and concerned about matters that are important to us. So what is the secret to letting to of this unnecessary anxiety?

Black History-Martin de Porres "One of the black ones"

St. Martin de Porres was born in Lima, Peru on December 9, 1579. Martin was the illegitimate son to a Spanish gentlemen and a freed slave from Panama, of African or possibly Native American descent.

LEARNING HOW TO PLAY THE GAM

LEARNING HOW TO PLAY THE GAME
Basketball can be played two ways. It can be played with the kind of sportsmanship that is gracious in winning and gracious in losing. Or basketball can be played merely for the win and money. The winning and money are legacies of some pros who have marred the dignity of the game with their tantrums, profanity, official bashing and bitter excuses.

Why Is This So Important

Why Is This So Important
Think of the key world events of the last couple of decades. The fall of the Berlin Wall. The Persian Gulf War. The El Nino weather events. The terrorist destruction of New York’s Twin Towers and attack on the Pentagon. The election of Barak Obama.

Yesterday, I began my review of Timothy Neary's wonderful book

Crossing Parish Boundaries: Race, Sports, and Catholic Youth in

Chicago, 1914-1954. Having examined the early years of interracial

tensions and even hostilities, the book turns to its hero, Auxiliary

Bishop Bernard Sheil of Chicago.

Sheil was from a "financially secure family," which Neary notes

"removed from the Sheil family many of the economic excuses for

bigotry common among ethnic and racial groups competing for economic

Crossing Parish Boundaries: Race, Sports, and Catholic Youth in Chicago,

1914-1954 (University of Chicago Press), comes at a time when violence and

racial tension again plague the city of Chicago. Neary's work is part biography

of the extraordinary Bishop Bernard Sheil, part urban study, part religious

survey, and part racial history, all combined into a fluid and fascinating text

that is as readable as it is informative. In the years between the first and

second world wars, migration in the United States changed dramatically. The
