Time To Build

Is your house built on sand? Or is your house built on Rock?

All through my blog, I have mentioned that, my children, I have been given by our Lord, are not mine to keep. They will one day, also be called back to our Lord. Therefore, they belong to Him. I am but a steward and must raise them with our faith in knowing this fact. Life is a gift.

Also, tanking into account, the 50 anniversary of the release Humanae Vitae was yesterday, I feel a deep need to share again, a fact of my conversion back home to our Lord and our Catholic faith, being in the form of a question that was asked yesterday via twitter to #AskTheQuestion

Along with the sex abuse scandal again making the news, this time in the form of one of our Cardinals (SEE HERE), its a good time to build. Build up souls again to understand our faith in not in the beauty of the buildings, the members of the Church, the Priests, the Nuns, or anyone else. Our faith is in our Lord, Jesus Christ. Who is the High Priest of all of us. When we place our faith in anyone but our Lord, we fail and collapse.

“The stone the builders rejected has become the cornerstone” (Ps 118:22).
“He is ‘the stone rejected by you, the builders, which has become the cornerstone'”. (Acts 4:11).
“Therefore, thus says the Lord GOD: See, I am laying a stone in Zion, a stone that has been tested, A precious cornerstone as a sure foundation; whoever puts faith in it will not waver.” (Is 28:18)
“…as it is written: ‘Behold, I am laying a stone in Zion that will make people stumble  and a rock that will make them fall, and whoever believes in him shall not be put to shame.'” (Rom 9:33)

There is an excellent video that I must share… Please take time to watch, and listen.

Peter’s Denial of Jesus

66 While Peter was below in the courtyard, one of the high priest’s maids came along.

67 Seeing Peter warming himself, she looked intently at him and said, “You too were with the Nazarene, Jesus.”

68 But he denied it saying, “I neither know nor understand what you are talking about.” So he went out into the outer court. [Then the cock crowed.]

69 The maid saw him and began again to say to the bystanders, “This man is one of them.”

70 Once again he denied it. A little later the bystanders said to Peter once more, “Surely you are one of them; for you too are a Galilean.”

71 He began to curse and to swear, “I do not know this man about whom you are talking.”

72 And immediately a cock crowed a second time. Then Peter remembered the word that Jesus had said to him, “Before the cock crows twice you will deny me three times.” He broke down and wept.

Mark 14 66:72

His Rock My Rock

While I spent time with our Lord in Gethsemane last night, I pondered. Why did my Lord cling to this rock. Why not keep waking up St. Peter, St James and St John?

The rock was and still is today, a better specimen at doing God’s will then any mortal man. The rock our Lord clung to, had been created by God, to do as God asked, and did exactly what God had designed it to do. To be a rock. It was not budging from Gods order. Thus was the obedience of our Lord. He could not be moved from carrying out God’s will. He did exactly as our Father had asked. Thus the reason we cling to Him and not any worldly object or person. He is my Rock. He doesn’t budge. He doesn’t change, I do. He is set firm and His Bride is set with Him. She does not budge.
