The Transfiguration of the Lord, Year A Daniel 7:9-10, 13-14 Psalm 97:1-2, 5-6, 9-12 2 Peter 1:16-19 Matthew 17:1-9 There are times in the gospels when Jesus goes off alone to pray.  Generally, we are not told of what Jesus does in prayer.  Today is different.  We are giving a vivid description of what happens […]

Video Presentation – Evangelization and Apologetics

Monday I led my third and final presentation for this Lent.  This topic is very important to me as I think helping people develop their own relationship with Jesus and then to share it with others is an essential part of God’s call to me.  As a priest, celebrating the Sacraments is very important to […]

More Words For God

Here are some more of my thoughts on words we use to describe God. Potter – Isaiah 64:7 says “Yet, O LORD, you are our father; we are the clay and you the potter: we are all the work of your hands.”  God is the one who formed man out of the ground and breathed […]

More Words

We continue to talk about words people use to describe God.  Today I turn to some “negative” words Trickster/Joker – I was a little surprised to see trickster/joker on the list.  I don’t know if I have ever heard God described in this way.  I take it to imply somebody seeing God as a deceiver who […]

More Words for Jesus

Today I take a look at some more positive words for God. Friend – Without a doubt, God is a friend.  A friend is someone you share close moments with.  A friend is someone you can count on to always be there.  A friend helps you become a better person.  A friend tells you the truth.  A […]

Some Negative Descriptions

Today, I continue to talk about “negative” words that some people use to describe God.  Of course, when I use the term “negative” I am already beginning to show my disapproval of the term. Punisher – Does God want to punish us?  No, God would be much happier if he did not have to punish […]

Using Words to Describe God

More Words to Describe God

A couple of days ago I started to write about words that people might use to describe God.  I started with tyrant, policeman, and stern judge.  Today, I would like to reflect on some positive words. All Powerful One – Without a doubt, God is all-powerful.  There is nothing that is possible to do that […]
