Fr Mike talked about seeing this in the obituaries once,
as he spoke at Fr Dan’s Resurrection Mass yesterday.
 “One day you will read my obituary in this newspaper
saying that I am dead.
Don’t you believe it.
I will be more alive than I have ever been”.
Thanks to Bob Connor for posting this on facebook,
in memory of Fr Dan Homan 1942-2011
God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be.
So He put His Arms around you and whispered “Come to Me”
With tearful eyes I watched you and saw you pass away.
Although I loved you dearly, I couldn’t make you stay.
A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands at rest.
God broke my heart to prove to me
He only takes the best.

Good Fruit

I like making “cute” doodles…but it’s not my intention to water down or trivialize the powerful messages of the homilies I am listening to while I doodle.
Talking about the Parable of the Sower on July 10, 2011, Fr Larry cautions us that this message is not an easy one.  We need to do what we do whether we feel like it or not:  if it comes from God, if it is life-giving, if it serves others and brings them closer to Him.

We need to ask ourselves…

Is the Word of God taking root in us?
Are we seeking God’s Will and doing what He wants?
Are we yielding good fruit?
