                March 8, 2011

                R. How can we give back to God when
                    we hurt others during our
                    whole life —

                Or when we took things that didn't
                    really belong to us — our whole
                    life —

                God gives us the sky, the stars,
                    the air we breathe —
                    our friends —
                    our life —

                We can be greedy and selfish

                We can be grouchy and think
                    nothing is right with
                    the world and

                Complain and think negative
                    thoughts —
                    that will surely make a
                    rotten time —

                What about a life of this —
                    when God is love and
                    God has gifted us everyday —

                How can we make it up to
                    God and to all those in the
                    course of a lifetime we were
                    not nice too — while we told
                    ourselves we were mistreated
                    and yet we mistreated others by
                    how we acted —

                It's all about our point of view —
                How is our vision —

                Do we love the job God called us to
                    because we love Him —

                Are we a team player — really
                    loving others —
                    focusing on God the Father who sent His
                    only begotten Son in this world
                    to pay for our sins —

                    Do we recognize God created
                us to contribute to the building
                of His Kingdom and we owe it
                to God to do this — not rebel
                against God our Creator —

                    The devil wants the person
                being unloving to steal that
                which is most dear to a person
                to hurt them deeply —

                The devil wants to wound and tear
                the heart —

                Look at Adam and Eve —
                And Cain killed his brother and

                David took the husband of
                    Bathsheba.

                David was not perfect —
                David was lustful —

                Despite all his gifts he gave
                    into this sin and               

                It shows how he suffered and
                    suffered for his sin —

                When we sin we offend the
                    law of love —

                When we deceive to hurt others we
                    act like satan who is the father
                    of lies —

                How can we do this — when
                    Jesus is the truth —

                To be like Jesus we tell the
                    truth and keep trying
                    to live in the truth because
                    we are to live in the truth —

                    What happens when there
                is an accident, can we forgive —
                can we work out of it —
                The devil says don't forgive —
                The devil says don't say you are
                    sorry — NEVER —

                The devil says:
                Do something on purpose to hurt
                    others — to get power over them —

                It's power seeking when one offends
                    another in secret to watch them
                    suffer — then tries to deceive and
                    act like they didn't do anything —

                God wants contrite loving hearts
                God wants us to say we are sorry
                    when we hurt others

                God created us to love —

                It is disorder to hurt someone
                    and act like we didn't do
                    it — It's against the order
                    God wants —

                Against the order of God's love —

                We all have hurt others, but
                    most of all offended God hurting
                    others — offended God taking all
                    He gives for building of His
                    Kingdom and acting like we had
                    His purpose first when we
                    were selfish and unloving and
                    manipulative —

                How about a life time of bad
                    habits — wanting never to change —

                    Lent is a time to take stock
                of how we have said to God
                we won't serve, but instead
                served ourselves — we thought
                and were jealous, seeking
                power, selfish — ungrateful —
                really authentically grateful
                as we should be —

                The devil wants us to say
                    "Who will ever question me in
                        my evil"

                The person who les evil doesn't
                    want anyone questioning them —
                    the devil wants it kept in
                    the dark so he can keep doing
                    it —

                Like Jesus' statue head last week
                    was knocked off between
                    12:30 and 7:30AM March 3, 2011
                    in the dark

       

   

                R. When we offend God we're
                    sorry if we love Him —

                When we sin and hide it and
                lie and watch others not
                knowing what is going on
                while we set a trap for them
                it is wrong — it is evil —

                Cain's sin was premeditated —

                It shows us — sin we plan and
                    plot in our beds is worse —

                Holding out to provoke others to
                    get control to be on top
                    with the gifts God gave to us
                    is wrong —

                God gave us generously —

                How about how do we thank God
                    and recognize our lifetime of
                    being unloving and expecting
                    Him to forgive us —

                We get more and more locked in
                    our vices and we become
                    more and more blinded —

                God gives us all the plants and
                    animals — all the gifts
                    we have —

                Light and
                we take the gifts God gives
                    for granted —

                God has order, rhythm in the
                    world —
                    rhythm in our body —
                    we are to be loving —
                    God created us to love

                We go against ourselves
                    when we act against
                    His commandments

    

Matthew 22: 36-40

'Master, which is the greatest commandment of the Law?' Jesus said to him, 'You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the greatest and the first commandment. The second resembles it: You must love your neighbour as yourself. On these two commandments hang the whole Law, and the Prophets too.'

   

The Ten Commandments

  1. I, the Lord, am your God. You shall not have other gods besides me.
  2. You shall not take the name of the Lord, your God, in vain.
  3. Remember to keep holy the Sabbath day.
  4. Honor your father and your mother.
  5. You shall not kill.
  6. You shall not commit adultery.
  7. You shall not steal.
  8. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
  9. You shall not covet your neighbor's wife.
  10. You shall not covet anything that belongs to your neighbor.

    

                R. The devil wants us to take things
                    that don't belong to us and
                    act like they do —

                The devil wants us to use our God-given
                    talents to act like we are great
                    because of them

                If we are great at something it
                    is because of God's gifts
                    and we cooperated with
                    them —

                If we are good it is because
                    of God's gifts —

                It depends on our vision

                R. WHAT IS YOUR POINT OF VIEW —

                The devil wants somebody to never
                    say they are sorry —
                    to lie —
                    to deceive —
                    to take what doesn't belong to him —
                    to seek power for power sake
                    to be selfish —

                7 deadly sins are
                    never saying you are sorry —
                    never working for conversion
   


                God wants obedience to His plan
                    love
                    faith
                    hope
                    kindness
                    giving to others —
                    other focused

                Ultimate challenge to love to
                    get to heaven —
                    to do the Father's will —
                    to live by God's order

                The devil wants fighting, argumentation —
                    power seeking, isolation —
                    conflict —

                God calls — we have a free will
                    to respond to God's call
                    according to God's will —
                    in love —

                God has a purpose —
                God has meaning to His plan —
                God created a beautiful world

                There was harmony in the
                    climate

                There was harmony among the
                    animals —

                All creation bears the handprint
                    of God —

                God has a plan —

                We are to see through God's eyes

   

From The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius
    by Louis J. Puhl, S.J. p. 12

                        23. FIRST PRINCIPLE AND FOUNDATION

                            Man is created to praise, reverence and serve God 
                        our Lord, and by this means to save his soul.

   

                R. We see disobedience to God all
                    through salvation history —

                Loving God and others —

                When we are unloving to others
                    we offend God —

                We were commanded to love —

                To have pure hearts more and more like
                    Jesus and Mary —

                Christ is the Light of the World —

                God speaks to us in space and
                    time —

                God created the world the
                    seen and unseen of the world —

                God created the world out of
                    nothing —

                God created the world —
                    Man is the apex of creation —

                Satan wants to tear the
                    heart —
                    to take that which is
                        most dear —
                    to get us not to love —

                To trick us —

                    To attack where it really
                hurts our heart — creates division
                with those we love most —
                so we suffer in the heart —

                Our hearts of love are
                    most dear —

                God intends us to be
                    united in love with
                    others —

                So satan wants us to be divided
                    with those we need to work
                    with in love —

                To obey and do God's work —
                    which is to obey God and
                    not rebel against God's
                    plan — which is for us to
                    be in His image and likeness
                    and to love

                The devil wants people to
                    hurt each other — to make
                    others hurt — to never be
                    reconciled — to never say
                    you are sorry —
                    To hold out — while a person
                    tears his own heart apart
                    with those he loves

                Love is being kind in our
                    heart —

                Love is most dear —

                Jesus came to this earth to teach
                    us about love —

                Jesus was whipped by the men
                    He loved —

                If somebody loves us a lot
                    the devil wants division
                    of those who love because
                    God is love and we are
                    most like God when we love —

                    The devil wants to break
                up love and turn it to hate —

                    The devil is absence of
                all love —

                    The devil wants to hurt and
                to get us to be divided and
                robbed of love and he appeals
                to a person's pride — wanting
                power, affection, wealth to
                get people to hurt others —
                then when we are divided with
                those we love and angry we are
                miserable because we are
                in disorder to God's rule
                of love —

                    We are to work as one as
                God wants — to love and
                forgive — to seek the big
                picture of God's plan, but
                the devil comes and presses
                on us tempting with
                seeking power for power sake,
                seeking affections and honors
                for ourselves or for wealth —

                    We have to give in many times
                and pray and let God work
                around us —

                    We don't want to be divided
                with those we love — it hurts
                bad — we don't do things to hurt
                people and expect them to love
                us back —

                The devil wants to tear up families —
                    institutions — churches and then
                    when people are divided they don't
                    stay united to God as they should
                    and their heart hurts —

                We want to live in love —

                God calls us to work as a team —
                    then we fight the people
                    we need to work with —
                    so we oppose God's will —
                    doing the work He called
                    us to do to serve Him
 


                Satan wants our hearts divided
                    so we won't work —
                    we won't love — our
                    energy goes —

                We are opposing God's
                    will when we fight
                    just authority and want to
                    be in charge —

                When we fight those we
                    are called to obey and
                    love —
                    we make our own heart
                    full of division and
                    can turn off our heart
                    with being right —

                Turning off your
                    heart is what is
                    most precious

                Live to love
                    work as one to
                    do God's will
