The New Family of Jesus Lk.8:19-21 by Deacon David Hockwalt

DEACON DAVID HOCKWALT was ordained a Permanent Deacon in the Diocese of San Bernardino in 2012. He continues in active ministry today and is the spiritual advisor to the vicariate Life in the Spirit team.

We pray that today may be a special day in your life as you experience the presence of Jesus Christ among us through this reflection. Magnificat, taken from Luke: 1, is the great hymn of praise that Mary prayed while visiting her cousin, Elizabeth. We trust that this reflection will help us all better understand that we are truly children of God, made in His image and likeness. We want to come together in God’s presence and proclaim that the Almighty has done great things for you and me and holy is His Name!

Magnificat ® is dedicated to Mary, the Mother of God, an image of the Church, and model for all Christians, especially women.

Two hundred Catholic women from all walks of life crowded into a Knights of Columbus hall on October 7, 1981, to have breakfast and to hear a woman’s personal
witness to the power of God in her life.

The women who left that hall were filled with a joy that only the Holy Spirit can give; that is, a deeper awareness of God’s loving presence in their lives and a burning desire to share this wonderful experience with more and more of their sisters in Christ.

The modest breakfast held on October 7, 1981, is today, a ministry to Catholic women known as “Magnificat” with Chapters in the United States, Canada, the Caribbean, Europe, and Africa.

While the Magnificat Meal is the main function of the ministry, Magnificat is much more than “putting on a meal.” It is a time of praise and worship, fellowship, and prayer.
Magnificat is a private association of the Christian faithful under the vigilance and jurisdiction of the local ordinary. The ministry is consecrated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

The essence of Magnificat is the encounter between Mary and Elizabeth (Luke 1:39-56). Magnificat is a woman-to-woman ministry which calls forth a lively faith in God and His actions in daily life, a love for Mary and for the Church, and deep holiness. The words of Our Lady’s canticle in Luke’s gospel take on a personal significance for Magnificat women as they seek to magnify the Lord in their own lives and lead others to know His great love and goodness.

We encourage you to join us as we pray, learn, and experience what God can do in our lives if we let Him!

It is more natural for people to be divided then united. It is more natural for people to fly apart then to come together. But real unity between all Christians would require a “supernatural solution, and that solution is loving one another as Jesus has loved us.

Ascension – Jesus physical presence left the disciples when He lifted up His hands, blessed them and was taken up into Heaven. You receive this blessing each time you attend Mass.

8th Sunday of Ordinary Time-C Bread of Life Bible Study

All through the ages, no matter what type of situation may have been present, almost everyone would agree that if you are critical, rather than compassionate, you will also receive criticism. 8th Sunday of Ordinary Time-C Bread of Life Bible Study

All through the ages, no matter what type of situation may have been present, almost everyone would agree that if you are critical, rather than compassionate, you will also receive criticism. If you treat others generously, gracefully, and compassionately, these qualities will come  back to you in full measure. Jesus does not mean we should ignore wrongdoing, but we are not to become critical of others that we begin to become one of God’s frozen people instead of one of his chosen people

11.29.2021 2nd Sunday of Advent -C Bread of Life Bible StudyAs we prepare for Christmas and the 2nd coming of Christ we are told to repent and make way for the Lord. Repentance does not mean “I am sorry,” it means “Change”. And that means changing direction by looking away from sin and turning to our loving, forgiving God, and doing things His way not our way.

Even today we often judge by our culture’s standards, – power, beauty, wealth, education – as in John’s time, and miss the really special people through whom God works. Greatness is not measured by what we have, but by what we do for God. We can be like John the Baptist and give ourselves entirely to God so his power can work through us.

Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary – August 15, 2021 – Bread of Life Bible Study

The kind of woman God chose to be His mother was humble, gentle, and obedient. Many times, to be blessed and chosen by God means a crown of joy and a cross of sorrow. Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary – August 15, 2021 – Bread of Life Bible Study

The kind of woman God chose to be His mother was humble, gentle, and obedient. Many times, to be blessed and chosen by God means a crown of joy and a cross of sorrow.

We must come to know that God does not choose a person for ease, comfort, and selfish joy. Mary’s soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord, her spirit rejoices in God her Savior.
