Reflection:

Jesus comes to free us. Jesus frees us to love beyond boundaries.  Jesus calls us to love freely and fully beyond the boundary of race, beyond the boundary of class, beyond the boundary of sexual identity, beyond our own dreams and wants, even beyond our securities.  When we love in this way, we will be called blessed.

Reflection:

"Ask and you will receive…"

When the disciples asked Jesus to teach them to pray, he said: begin by saying "Father" — in Aramaic, "Abba" daddy.   That word sets the tone for how we are to pray.  God is not a father from whom gifts have to be forcibly extracted.  God is Abba, a loving, intimate father who delights in giving us all we need.

Reflection:

My one-year-old grandson John constantly looks to his parents for approval. If he gets encouragement or a hearty "Good for you!" he breaks into a huge grin and often claps with delight. When he gets a stern look or a reprimand, he lowers his head and sulks away. His parents’ reactions are helping John learn appropriate and acceptable behavior.
