John 13:21-33, 36-38

 Jesus is deeply troubled. Night has fallen. One apostle is about to betray Jesus and another is going to deny him three times. The darkness of the coming events is palpable in this Gospel reading.

There is a saying that I am sure you have heard: Treat others how you want to be treated. It makes a lot of sense. I have used this expression many times and have tried to use it to model how I deal with people.

The third word is from John 19:26–27: Woman, behold your son. Son, behold your mother.

This is all about Mary to me. I find Mary so powerful and impactful in such a quiet and elegant way. At the Feast of Cana, she tells Jesus to perform His first miracle. She exhibits a strength and finesse that are commendable.

This is a blog to anyone who ever wore a snow suit!

When I was young, I was always super excited when the forecast called for a snow storm. As the first flakes began to fall, I would wander into my backyard, lay flat on my back on the ground, and have the snow fall on top of me, hoping it would cover me totally. Of course, this never lasted long, as I would get cold and go back inside for the warmth.

Last week, I wrote about potential in our faith life. But there is more than just potential; there is the desire and yearning to have God in our life. Many years ago, I heard a true story of a person who doesn't share our beliefs that puts into perspective how strong our faith life could be. I would like to share it with you now.
