From Romans 10: 14-21, we hear the line: "How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!" (Rom 10:16) What a strange way to describe feet, which we usually associate with smelliness or sweatiness. The predominent question is 'What can make feet beautiful?' to which I would propose that it is not in … Continue reading Beautiful Feet
From Jeremiah 46: 13-26: we hear a prophecy about the failing of the Egyptian army when faced against the Babylonians the line, "Give Pharoh, king of Egypt, the name 'Braggart who missed his chance.' " (Jer 46:17) is especially interesting and what I will reflect on today. I began to ponder ego, the meaning of the word and it's … Continue reading Trust and Ego
I'm having a little bit of writer's block, so I am going to post some old writing of mine, writing I did for a end-of -the-year project, they are scripture reflections technically, because they are reflections I wrote on the 2nd Joyful mystery: The Visitation (Lk:1:39-56) and the 3rd (Mk 15:16-20; Mt27:27-31; Jn 19:2-5) and … Continue reading Rosary Reflections

And to a certain extent … Continue reading Freedom
From Jeremiah 39: 1-10 "gave them [the poor] vineyards and fields at the same time." (Verse 10) Sometimes I'm going to do a bit of a different sort of reflection like today, I'll be telling you a story of something that bothered me for a long time and my search for meaning, a real example of 'Seek and Ye Shall Find.' So without further ado, … Continue reading Source and Summit
The passage I read through today was Jeremiah 38: 1-6, but more specifically verse 6: "There was no water in the cistern." Often we feel empty, especially after giving a substantial portion of our strength in an acct of love that is rejected by the intended recipient. It feels like the Ultimate Betrayal. However, what we have to keep in our … Continue reading Stuck in the Cistern
From Jeremiah 37: 11-21. A story of when Jeremiah was finally captured and put in jail, I found myself drawn to this line from verse 21: "a loaf of bread was given him daily from the bakers' street, until all the bread of the city was gone." This is so very cool, in my opinion, … Continue reading Bread given Daily
