All Things Possible

I pray not only for these, but for those also who through their words will believe in Me (John 17:20) Seventh Sunday of Easter

As the story goes, the Notre Dame football team was en route to a long awaited game against one of its chief rivals. A reporter met the team at the airport and quickly cornered the team’s coach. “It has been widely reported that your football squad always travels with a priest to pray for the team’s success on the gridiron," the reported said. "I would love the opportunity to interview the Chaplain. Would you mind introducing me to him?”

"No problem!" the coach eagerly replied. "Just tell me, which one do you want to meet first? The Offensive, Defensive or Special Teams Chaplain?"

A big-time football fan, Dwight Eisenhower was reported to say, "An atheist is a guy who watches a Notre Dame football game and doesn't care who wins."

Ridiculous, but it makes the point. As another famous coach put it, "some people think football is a matter of life and death, but I assure you, it's much more serious than that." -1

No matter if you treat football like it's your second religion, a matter of life and death, or you don't give a hoot who wins -- if you enter into union with the Lord lovingly, trustingly, and prayerfully, God will provide you with whatever you need to make you whole. And you don't need a team of Chaplains! Just make the connection, get in touch and stay in touch -- and God will do the rest.

If you will look at Jesus you will see that He had the ability to pray constantly. In His busy day, He was tuned into God's Presence, and that was what enabled Him to preach and to heal [...]

Hypocrisy, Judgment, Suspicion

A prosperous young businessman met, fell in love with, and was frequently seen escorting about town a young woman of great gentility and dignity ... He wanted to marry her, but being a cautious man he decided that before proposing matrimony he should have a private investigating agency check her background and present activities. “After all,” he reminded himself, “I have both a growing fortune and my reputation to protect against a marital misadventure.” The agency assigned an investigator and, in due course, he submitted his report. It said that the woman had an unblemished past and a spotless reputation, and that her friends and associates were of the best repute. “The only shadow,” added the report, “is that currently she is often seen around town in the company of a young businessman of dubious business practices and principles.”

Father’s Day, Father, Security

“Wrap your cloak around you and follow me” (Acts 12:8). Reinhold Neibuhr (noted theologian) once spoke of his deceased father with these words: As a child I once spent a day with my grandmother. Toward evening, a severe storm began. My Grandmother didn’t know how I would get home. But my father came. He put his big blue coat over my head – grabbed my hand – and off we went. I couldn’t see anything as we splashed through puddles and mud. I heard the rain and the thunder claps and seized my father ’s hand more tightly. But I would have been a fool if I had complained that it was dark around me. After all, it was my father ’s coat, protecting me from the weather. Father saw the way . . . and when the coat was parted, we were home.
