August 12, 2019

The Glorious Mysteries – Part 2: Blossoming in the Empowered Life. In the third Mystery, the Descent of the Holy Spirit, we are empowered by the Holy Spirit to accomplish whatever the Father calls us to do. In the Assumption of Mary, when we say “Yes” to the calling to bring Christ into the world, we are united to our Blessed Mother’s love, her fullness of grace, and her support. In Mary’s Crowning as our Queen, she is Queen of Heaven, we are her daughters (and sons), princesses (and princes) of the Most High God.

With the Eucharist as the source and summit of our faith, we can draw upon its strength to grow in healing, giftedness, and excellence in the mission of Christ, in a spirit of collaboration within community. We are empowered to continue the ministry of Christ utilizing our particular gifts and talents and our unique callings. We are empowered by the Holy Spirit to have a resurrected life full of new joys and victories.

The Glorious Mysteries – Part 1: Blossoming in the Empowered Life. Are you ready to experience more joy to be a better minister? In the first Mystery, the Resurrection, our sufferings and dyings are transfigured into new life, new purposes, new ministries. In the Mystery of the Ascension, we reach higher states of forgiveness, love, determination, commitment, faithfulness, and willingness to spread the Good News. Jesus said, “If you believe in Me, you will do the works that I do, and greater ones than these” (John 14:12). How can this be true?

The Sorrowful Mysteries – Part 2: Communion with Jesus means becoming Eucharist. In the Mystery of The Crucifixion, we are dying to our own desires as we prepare for resurrection. United to Jesus in his Passion, our sufferings become redemptive. St. Ignatius of Antioch said, "I am the wheat of Christ, ground by the teeth of beasts to become pure bread." In our sufferings, we become Eucharist (the Bread of Christ), a sign of the true presence of Jesus in the world. But we need to rest to keep persevering.

The Sorrowful Mysteries – Part 1: Communion with Jesus means becoming Eucharist. “Are you willing to suffer?” This is what Jesus asked Terry in a life-changing moment. In the first Mystery, the Agony in the Garden, this is our moment of decision to follow Christ all the way. In the Scourging, this is the pain we feel when our faith is rejected by those we want to help; some of our fruits that had started to grow are snipped off. In the Crowning of Thorns, our minds are attacked by doubts, fears, and false accusations; we look at the fruit dying on the ground and mourn. In Carrying the Cross, our burdens become light when yoked to Jesus; we know that a better fruit will grow.

The Father sees us sprouting and says, “This is my beloved child with whom I am well pleased!” (Matt. 3:13-17). In the Wedding at Cana, Jesus turns our ordinary water into extraordinary wine. In the third Mystery, Preaching the Good News, we learn more about what Jesus is really like.

Jesus Takes Your Tears and Your Yearnings – Part 2: There are three ways Jesus comes to us. Scripture, music, etc. are venues, but how does he reveal himself in such a way that we recognize him and feel comforted and helped by his presence? By his voice calling us by name (like Mary Magdalene in the garden after his resurrection, by his wounds (like when Thomas touched the wounds of Jesus), and the Eucharist (like the disciples experienced in Emmaus).

Footsteps to Heaven - The Creed of True Belief

Footsteps to Heaven - The Creed of True Belief

July 23, 2019

Episode #24: Part 5 of "Going Deeper into Mass" - THE CREED 

When we proclaim our faith out loud, the devil hears us and knows he has been defeated. This is one reason why we recite the Creed during Mass and why it’s important to not be silent but to pay close attention to the words of the Creed and what they mean. Every line of the Creed conquers lies about who God really is -- God the Father, God the Savior Jesus Christ, and God the Holy Spirit – and also who we are as the Church. In this episode, Terry Modica describes the heresies that the Creed overcomes. 

Stay tuned for the rest of this series going deeper into Holy Mass.
