John 21:6

So He said to them, “Children, do you have any fish?” “No,” they answered. 6He told them, “Cast the net on the right side of the boat,and you will find some.” So they cast it there, and they were unable to haul it in because of the great number of fish. 7Then the disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, “It is the Lord!” As soon as Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he put on his outer garment (for he had removed it) and jumped into the sea.…

When we listen to God and follow God he will do great things for us. Just like in this bible verse. They were just looking for some fish, and they got more than enough. So just imagine if we learn to follow him and trust him what he would do for us. One of the ways to follow him is by going to confession. Another way is to go out of your way to help another person. A good example, firefighters, who drop everything at a moments notice to go help somebody in need. Shouldn’t we all strive to be like this, in one way or another. I think we should.

Blessed Bartholomew of Vicenza

Is our Earth a gift from God?

It is my opinion that people don’t think the earth is a gift from God. The earth was created for us, we should treat the earth with respect and dignity. Those that don’t treat the earth with respect and dignity should be ashamed of themselves. If everybody treated the earth responsibly  we wouldn’t be worried about pollution and natural disasters. I believe that some of us are not one with God and some of us do not believe at all. I feel that is when God lets natural disasters happen, and pollution affects our environment like it has been. I believe that if we all started praying and taking the time to listen to God things would change drastically for all of us. I have love for all my brothers and sisters even the ones who choose not to love God for what he truly is, our heavenly father.  I love you all.
