Sunday Sermon and Happy Grandparents Day

11 Sep

Becoming a grandmother is wonderful. One moment you’re just a mother. The next you are all-wise and prehistoric.

It was a gorgeous Sunday morning. It was only in the 60’s and I put on a sweater. Yes! A sweater, yay! As I pulled into the parking lot at St. Gabriel’s, there above the tree tops was a hot air balloon floating across the crisp blue sky. Cool!


Oh my goodness, the Gospel today was soooo relevant to my week. I couldn’t believe the correlation. I had my conversation, explained my feelings, and extended an olive branch, and if he refuses to listen…”Amen, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.”

Gospel MT 18:15-20
Jesus said to his disciples: “If your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault between you and him alone. If he listens to you, you have won over your brother. If he does not listen, take one or two others along with you, so that ‘every fact may be established on the testimony of two or three witnesses.’ If he refuses to listen to them, tell the church. If he refuses to listen even to the church, then treat him as you would a Gentile or a tax collector. Amen, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. Again, amen, I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything for which they are to pray, it shall be granted to them by my heavenly Father. For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.”

My take on it… you can try your best to reconcile with someone, but you can’t force them listen or to change. “Whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven.”

Now, for the wonders of being a grandparent. Today is GRANDPARENTS DAY.

My son Joe and Lindsay called me today and they put Baby Belle on FaceTime. I was so excited to see my adorable 9 month old granddaughter. She’s still trying to figure out that the tiny face on the phone is Grandma. I got to hear her giggle and gurgle and see her beautiful face. What did we do before FaceTime? I love being a grandma!


Isn’t she adorable! Love you, Baby Belle!
