i will be with you


In today’s first reading (Jeremiah 1: 1, 4-10), God again overrules Jeremiah’s objection that he is too young and is not gifted as an orator to become a prophet by the words “I WILL BE WITH YOU.”

God reassured with the same words many great figures of the Old Testament who were overwhelmed by God’s plans on them:  Joshua, Gideon, Solomon, Johanan, the people of Israel, Zerubabel, Mary, Paul and the Church.

GOD DOES NOT CHANGE. All of us are charged by Him with a great mission.   If we feel unequal to the responsibility He entrusts us with, let us remember that, through it all, HE SHALL ALWAYS BE AT OUR SIDE.

St. Apollinarius, pray for us!

Always remember, He will be with you!

God bless,

Brother Mo





“Here is my servant, whom I have chosen; the one I love, and with whom I am pleased.  I will put my spirit upon him; and he will announce my judgment to the nations.

He will not argue or shout, nor will his voice be heard in the streets.  THE BRUISED REED he will not crush, nor snuff out the smoldering wick until he brings justice to victory, and in him, all the nations will put their hope.”

Prophet Isaiah’s prophecy (Gospel of Matthew 12: 14-21)

One day, in another town, a man came to Jesus covered with leprosy.  On seeing Jesus, the man bowed down to the ground, and said, “LORD, IF YOU WANT TO, YOU CAN MAKE ME CLEAN.”

Stretching out His hand, Jesus touched the man and said, “Yes, I want to.  Be clean.”  In an instant, the leprosy left him.

Then Jesus instructed him, “TELL THIS TO NO ONE.  BUT GO, AND SHOW YOURSELF TO THE PRIEST.  MAKE AN OFFERING FOR YOUR HEALING, as Moses prescribed; that will served as evidence for them.

From the Gospel of Luke 5: 12-16



  1.  When we ask for healing, do we humbly ask Him first if He wants to heal us?
  2. If healed, can we keep our excitement and thankfulness to ourselves?
  3. What did we offer to Him when we were once healed?


St. Raymond of Penafort, pray for us.

St. Raymond of Pennafort, Patron Saint of Canonists (Feast day – January 7) Born in Spain, St. Raymond was a relative of the King of Aragon. From childhood he had a tender love and devotion to the Blessed Mother. He finished his studies at an early age, and became a famous teacher. He then gave up all his honors and entered the Order of the Dominicans. St. Raymond was very humble and very close to God. He did much penance and was so good and kind that he won many sinners to God. With King James of Aragon and St. Peter Nolasco he founded the Order of Our Lady of Ransom. The brave religious of this Order devoted themselves to saving poor Christians captured by the Moors.  Read more…


Ask His will first,

Our One Minute Wisdom for Today, April 08, 2015 (Easter Wednesday)

Peter and John were going up to the temple area for the 3 o’clock hour of prayer.

And a crippled from birth was carried and placed at the gate of the temple called “the Beautiful Gate” every day to beg for alms from the people who entered the temple.

When he saw Peter and John about to go into the temple, he asked for alms.  But Peter looked intently at him as did John, and said, “Look at us.”  He paid attention to them, expecting to receive something from them.

Peter said, “I have neither silver nor gold, but what I do have I give you: in the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, rise and walk.”  Then Peter took him by the right hand and raised him up and immediately his feet and ankles grew strong.

He leaped up, stood, and walked around, and went into the temple with them, walking and jumping and praising God.

When all the people saw him walking and praising God, they recognized him as the one who used to sit begging at the gate, and they were filled with amazement and astonishment at what had happened to him.

-From Acts 3: 1-10



  • Do we need a miracle in our lives?
  • Do we ever look to Him who was crucified for that miracle?
  • Do we continue to wait for miracles of our own to be amazed and astonished?


St. of the Day:

St. Julie Billiart, pray for us.

Be the Miracle,

Brother Mo
