Separation is negative, companionship is essential!

Separation is negative, companionship is essential!
Some people are lazy while others are workaholics. The lazy person, seeing the pointlessness of running here and there for success, idles away his time and hurts both himself and those who depends on him.
The workaholic is often driven by envy, greed, and a constant desire to stay ahead of everyone else. Both extremes are foolish and irresponsible.

Jesus is Greater than Moses

Jesus is Greater than Moses
For Jews the highest human authority was the high priest. For us Christians, the highest human authorities were God’s messengers, the apostles. Jesus, God’s Messenger and High Priest, is the ultimate authority in the church.

NEW YORK The specter of Donald Trump's one-month presidency hung over a Feb. 21 seminar on racism and religious faith here sponsored by Fordham University's Center on Religion and Culture.
"Over the past few months our country has been engaged in a vociferous call and response," said Aimee Meredith Cox, of Fordham's Department of African and African-American Studies.

One Body with Many Parts

One Body with Many Parts
The apostle Paul compares the body of Christ to a human body. Each part has a specific function that is necessary to the body as a whole. The parts are different for a purpose, and in their differences they must work together. Christians must avoid two common errors: (1) being proud of their abilities, or (2) thinking they have nothing to give to the body of believers. Instead of comparing ourselves to one another, we should use our different gifts, together, to spread the Good News of salvation.

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.
The prophet Jeremiah was “appointed” by God as “spokesman to the world”. God has a purpose for each Christian, but some people are appointed by God for specific kinds of work.

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.
