#grace
Father Michael Müller
Whenever we stay away from Mass through neglect, especially on Sundays and holy-days of obligation, we thereby give to understand that we do not care to give glory to God and His saints, as little as we care to obtain the graces of God for ourselves and others by so powerful a means as that of the Mass. And do we imagine that this contempt of ours for God’s glory and His blessings will go unpunished? We cannot complain that the Almighty should treat us with similar neglect, if He bestows His choicest gifts upon others, and passes us by unnoticed. We made the choice and we must abide the issue!

Luke 7:36-48

One of the Pharisees asked him to eat with him, and he went into the Pharisee’s house and reclined at table. And behold, a woman of the city, who was a sinner, when she learned that he was reclining at table in the Pharisee’s house, brought an alabaster flask of ointment, and standing behind him at his feet, weeping, she began to wet his feet with her tears and wiped them with the hair of her head and kissed his feet and anointed them with the ointment.

Now when the Pharisee who had invited him saw this, he said to himself, “If this man were a prophet, he would have known who and what sort of woman this is who is touching him, for she is a sinner.”

And Jesus answering said to him, “Simon, I have something to say to you.” And he answered, “Say it, Teacher.”

“A certain moneylender had two debtors. One owed five hundred denarii, and the other fifty. When they could not pay, he cancelled the debt of both. Now which of them will love him more?”

Simon answered, “The one, I suppose, for whom he cancelled the larger debt.” And he said to him, “You have judged rightly.”

Then turning toward the woman he said to Simon, “Do you see this woman? I entered your house; you gave me no water for my feet, but she has wet my feet with her tears and wiped them with her hair. You gave me no kiss, but from the time I came in she has not ceased to kiss my feet. You did not anoint my head with oil, but she has anointed my feet with ointment. Therefore I tell you, her sins, which are many, are forgiven—for she loved much. But he who is forgiven little, loves little.”

And he said to her, “Your sins are forgiven.”

Dias vem e dias vão e corremos de um lado para o outro, e no final das contas não sabemos ao certo para onde estamos indo. Diariamente enfrentramos diversas situações que tendem a tirar o nosso melhor ou o nosso pior; depende de como estamos nos sentindo e de quem está interagindo conosco.

Essa semana parei para pensar em tudo que tenho feito e me recordei da fala de Samuel ao erguer uma pedra simbólica: “Até aqui o Senhor nos ajudou.” (1Sam7:12)

Sim, até aqui o Senhor tem me ajudado e te ajudado também. Ele sabe quem somos e como somos, acompanha todos os nossos passos. Aonde quer que estejamos, Ele também está. Basta olhar em volta e ver quantas coisas você nem imaginava que seriam possíveis, mas se tornaram reais. Todas as vezes em que você percebeu a ação de Deus, e não ação de homens. Deus se faz presente.


Temos de graça o dom da vida, estamos em movimento, sentimos, respiramos e a cada segundo, vivenciamos o novo. Não deixe que os pequenos detalhes passem desapercebidos. Valorize cada momento, cada pessoam que cruzar o seu caminho, cada olhar e cada gesto.


Nem sempre pintaremos arco-íris numa folha de papel. As vezes o céu não estará estrelado, mas Deus é capaz de medir o oceano com a concha de Sua mão, por isso reúna todas as suas energias, não importa o quão cansado você se encontra hoje. Eleve os seus olhos aos céus e não deixe que as dificuldades pousem em seu ser. Lembre-se que a sua força é falha, sim, porém tendo Deus como refúgio, somos fortes mesmo estando fracos.

Valorize a fé. Uma fé simples e do tamanho de um grãozinho de mostarda é o suficiente para começar, para tentar e para não desistir.


Até aqui nos ajudou o Senhor, e a partir daqui Ele continuará nos ajudando. Por mais fracos que sejamos, os braços de Deus nos circundam, nos afaga e nos trás a segurança.


O que Ele oferece, Ele é!

“Qual de vocês que, possuindo 100 ovelhas, e perdendo uma, não deixa as noventa e nove no campo e vai atrás da ovelha perdida, até encontrá-la? E quando a encontra, coloca-a alegremente nos ombros e vai para casa. Ao chegar, reúne seus amigos e vizinhos e diz: ‘Alegrem-se comigo, pois encontrei minha ovelha perdida’.” Lc 15:4-6


O sol se esconde, mais uma vez.

Onde estamos?

Quais caminhos escolhemos durante o nosso dia e também durante toda essa semana?

O quão longe conseguimos ir?

Será que sabemos realmente o que vai dentro, no fundo da nossa alma?

Fomos longe, tão longe para não conseguir enxergar o caminho de volta?

Não sei onde você está, ou qual situação se encontra; pode parecer escuro, e até mesmo estar frio. Podemos não saber o caminho de volta, nem mesmo o de ida para algum outro lugar. Afinal, nós só almejamos estar seguros, queremos descanso e paz ao repousar.Diante disso, não podemos nos esquecer que Deus mora em toda habitação, ouve cada palavra proferida, escuta cada oração feita aos céus. Ele experimenta as dores e as decepções de cada alma. Ele cuida das nossas necessidades. Ele nos acolhe.


Não há limites para a expressão do amor de Deus por nós. Em tudo a nossa volta, mesmo estando perdidos, Deus nos encontra onde quer que estejamos, porque Ele nos procura até pelos mais profundos vales. Não importa se não temos forças para acompanhá-lo, Ele nos coloca no colo para levar-nos de volta para o aprisco, de volta para casa, para a vida, para perto dos Seus braços ternos e do seu grandioso amor.Ele nunca nos abandonará.

Ele é Deus e Ele é por nós.

*tiny gasp* YOU GOT CATS?! lemme see!

I’m not good at taking pictures, so you won’t have those of them. But yes. Grace and Cherry. I just got Cherry… as a “gift”. Her nose is red. That’s why she’s Cherry.

Grace is a proud cat. Proud and elegant. So she’s Grace… Hmh.

  • Location: King’s Head
  • Time: night
  • Who: @grcekcnnedy​ / “you shouldn’t have said that”

King’s Head was full. Come weekend and it seemed like everyone was in the mood for a drink after work hours, and with that, came all the madness and loudness within. Henry couldn’t even care about what was going on, or what the discussion close by was about, just that he heard the words football and Tom Brady, forcing him to give out his opinion – much to the contrary – to the men standing close by, probably earning him a few bad looks and making some enemies while at it. The blonde siting next to him spoke up, diverging his attention from the group of men. “Why not? Think they aren’t big enough to handle the truth?”

This quarantine period during the corona virus has taught me that we as human beings, we are one self. We are each teacher. We are the students and through it, we learn. We are alone but we still thrive in social interaction because close friendships are important. Other than that, we are ONE. We are the number one looking for another one cause two is better so we can have companionship and laughter. Then we can add up to three, four, five, etc.

It was an early Saturday evening when I sat at the counter in tears asking for God’s guidance. In that moment, I felt the calling to pivot- so I did. 

It was a multiple phone calls later, when I was doing phone interviews and rigorous testing.

It was a few days later, when I jumped up and drove 10 hours for an interview. 

It was that Friday, when I received the call that all of that work had paid off. It was the hours of contemplation, but then the sudden assurance through a podcast and from my soul that this was the path to be taken. Not the one I planned (it never is), but one that would take me to places unknown. 

It’s now, during video chats with coworkers where we smile and laugh. Even though I have not met most in person, they help me with open arms. It’s packages from the company sending welcome gifts. It’s toilet paper from my recruiter because I am running low. Continuously blown away by God’s grace and love, even when the world falls apart. 

Maybe it’s because I have been heartbroken and fearful these last two years that the present is bearable. With my sensitive soul, I don’t doubt it. And I am blown away that God wrote my story this way, with such individualized foresight. 

I know that the world is scary. But please- trust God. He’s got you in the palm of his hand. Even as you are rolled around in it, he’s cupping his hands to keep you there. Even if life may not add up, and dreams are broken, and you are physically ill- he has a plan. 

Take it from someone who has experienced these events. We may roll and rock, but we will not fall from his loving hands.
