Monday of Trinity 14 – Matthew 5:1-16

ShareMatthew 5:1-16               The Sermon on the Mount in general and the Beatitudes in particular are as dense as a black hole!  It’s a little intimidating trying to say something meaningful about the Beatitudes in such a small space, but here goes. The first thing that strikes me is the very name Beatitudes.  This […]

Monday of 1st Sunday after Trinity – Luke 2:21-40

ShareLuke 2:21-40 St. Luke is the only one of the Gospel writers to mention Sts. Simeon and Anna, and I’m glad that he does.  To me, they are patterns for our lives.  In both brief stories, Simeon and Anna live out the same pattern, which is a model for our lives.  It happens like this: […]

Saturday of Trinity 9 – Romans 4:1-12

ShareRomans 4:1-12 I love words!  They have such power to communicate ideas and mysteries and entire worlds that are created at their mere mention.  I love the strange twists that word association games take when played with certain people (like me).  Here’s one of my favorite games that ends with a word.  There are 10 […]
