Christianity Is a Complete Way of Life http://hubs.ly/H04thkZ0 #minutemeditations from @FranciscanMedia
Without Our Bridegroom
“Why do the disciples of John and the disciples of the Pharisees fast, but your disciples do not fast?” Jesus answered them, “Can the wedding guests fast while the bridegroom is with them?” • Mark 2:18-19
Seeking Him • Second Sunday in Ordinary Time
Jesus turned and saw them following him and said to them, “What are you looking for?” They said to him, “Rabbi…, where are you staying?” • John 1:38
I did not come to call the righteous but sinners. • Mark 2:17
The Faith of Friends
Many gathered together so that there was no longer room for them, not even around the door, and he preached the word to them… Unable to get near Jesus because of the crowd, they opened up the roof above him. • Mark 2:2, 4

The Word Among Us
Holy Spirit, help me keep my pride in check and open my heart to letting God's love shine through to all.
Jesus’ #Baptism reminds us of his divinity in a world where many do not believe that Jesus is divine.
There will be times when what you signed up for is more than you realized it would be or it has gone on longer than you anticipated, and you no longer have the grace for it. When that happens, you must have the freedom to admit it and the wisdom to walk away.
