Mother Mary, whose soul magnifies

the Lord, who treads the adder,

who reigns as Queen of Heaven,

you I thank whenever I rise

and think of the love of the Father

evident in Christ’s incarnation.

Mary Icon January 19, 2014

Mother Mary, your faithfulness

and strength I do ponder,

for you raised a unique Son.

That must have been a great mess

at time, but, based on the Master,

you did indeed get the job done.

Mother Mary, if you did not always

understand Jesus, we join your

company, for all of us in that

sometimes falter; he does us faze,

for we think that we know more

than we do; our answers are inadequate

Mary Statue January 19, 2014

much of the time; the truth exceeds

the bounds of our imaginations often;

reality proves more wonderful than

that which we ponder, of which we read.

The glory of God we ought not soften

or minimize; it we cannot fully understand.

Mary Wall Hanging January 19, 2014

Mother Mary, whom God did choose

for a life and mission most special

and full of great joy, risk, and sorrow,

may we, learning from you, never lose

the desire to love Jesus, of splendor full,

and him forevermore to follow.

Conversion is Proof of the Kingdom’s Presence   2 comments

Matt. 12, 28

That Christ cast out demons is admitted by friend and foe.  The question is how he did it.

1.  The Pharisees said he cast them out by Beelzebub, the prince of demons.  If so, Satan’s kingdom is divided, and the warring factions will destroy his kingdom.  Manifestly the theory carries contradiction on its face.

2.  Hence we are left to his own claim that he cast them out by the Spirit.

The Spirit generated his humanity, he increased in the Spirit as a child, the Spirit came upon him at his baptism, he went to the wilderness being full of the Spirit, etc.  The Spirit imparted the power he used in his work, to cast out demons, and all else.

3.  But the power to cast out demons is then the same displayed in saving the sinner now.  The demon within is the trouble with men then & now.  Conversion is the ever-present miracle.

4.  This evinces, then & now, that the kingdom of God is come upon us.  This is the power that shall supplant Satan and establish His everlasting kingdom.  This power of the Spirit is proof to all of Christ’s divinity.  “That ye bear much fruit,” etc.

5.  This power is for us today.  God would through us work “greater works.”  Open the flood-gates and let him come in!
