Mass 09.13.19 – How Do We See Others?

How do we see others? Father Mike spent time this morning talking to our students about perceptions of ourselves, others, and God. He issued a challenge at the end of his talk that we encourage EVERYONE to try today.
 
Here are some talking points to help make today’s mass meaningful in your home: – Do we see people and the good they do? – Do we see the mistakes they make? – God sees us through loving eyes… ALWAYS! – Loving eyes give grace for good days and bad days. – Loving eyes forgive when we have really bad days. – Loving eyes allow for redemption and growth.
 
CHALLENGE: Can you say something nice to a friend, a family member, teacher, … anyone… and see them as God see them.

Mass 08.30.19 – Be Prepared

Father Mike spent his mass message today talking about preparation. (Feel free to read today’s Gospel lesson, Matthew 25: 1-13, for his biblical jumping off point.)
 
Here are a few things he talked about to help make mass meaningful in your home:
– It is important for us to be prepared.
– We prepare for lots of things in our life; tests, hurricanes, basketball games, choir performances, and more.
– We can prepare by doing things with our bodies or our minds.
– We spend our entire life preparing for the most important thing – our life with God.
– We can prepare every day by living a godly life. We can pray, we can love each other, we can act as the Bible tells us…
– What are other ways we can prepare for our life with God?
