"This Sunday occurs during the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. This Week of Prayer is an annual ecumenical celebration. Christians around the world are invited to pray for the unity of all Christians, to reflect on scripture together, to participate in jointly-organized ecumenical services, and to share fellowship."...

"God our ever present loving Father wants us to be mentors of reconciliation to others, to be their ‘elders’ who show by example and word how to live and be God’s children."...

"The homily is the result of  a hodgepodge of my own thoughts and prayer and that of all I have read and learned from others concerning the Sunday readings.  The intent is to  present a unified, prayerful, inspiring ‘opening up the scriptures’ for God’s people each Sunday."...

"People who bring serious reflection to the question of what they desire don’t usually speak of their desire for a new car or a fancier house. . . . Rather, people speak of peace, health for self and others, a desire to be more appreciative for what they have, and so on." ...

"The most difficult challenge is to know that the Holy Spirit is truly present in our lives. We must take the time to be still, and listen to the promptings that will guide us and keep us on the right path."...

"The path is not safe, but, surprisingly, it is leading me to discover that Jesus actually wants me to be happy." Reposted from The Jesuit Post with permission....
