Jesus Decends the Underworld

“Awake, sleeper, I have not made you to be held a prisoner in the underworld. Arise from the dead; I am the life of the dead. Arise, O man, work of my hands, arise, you who were fashioned in my image. Rise, let us go hence; for you in me and I in you, together we are one undivided person.”

New Covenant calls for Circumcised Heart

We can only be cleansed with the help of God, our creator, the one who has made us, our father, our maker. When Jesus came he sealed with his flesh, the new covenant that God had made with humanity by circumcising, piercing his heart. “Circumcise your hearts, therefore, and be no longer stiff-necked” (Deuteronomy 10: 16) When we join with the eternal spiritual wonder, we become one with pure potentiality.

When we receive the Eucharist–the Body and Blood, soul and divinity of Jesus Christ–we receive the Sacred Heart pierced (circumcised) for us. This new heart is joined to our hearts, transforming them and making it possible for us to live the new covenant of love that Jesus sealed in his flesh. With circumcised hearts and one with the Heart of Jesus, we can now love God and neighbor as Jesus did.

Water (Baptism) takes away sin. Blood (Eucharist) gives a new heart.

To Dust We Will Return

“The truth is, we’re dust — and to dust we shall return. And not only are we made of dust, but so is most of the stuff we spend our time chasing every day. All of our money, possessions and earthly accomplishments are not important in themselves. They are all fleeting. They are all, ultimately, dust.”
-Matthew Warner

Focusing in on God

Times of dryness find us sometimes in life. Remembering when we peel away everything that creates chatter and obstructs us from being the best version of ourself, essentially our relationship with God is what matters. Once we sacrifice ourselves to the will of God, we are transformed into what we consider the impossible – A more perfect union with our creator that radiates the light from within.

A life surrendered is transformed and shared.
-from the Bible

You and I

Lyrics:
Happy, spinning, clapping,
laughing, dancing, in the blackness of magic.
Get it, have it, bag it,
throw yourself on the aeroplane and fly like magic.
No sleep, no chance, no need forget about it.
One life, live free,
big dreams we’re all about ‘em.
You’re finding it, take it,
take it in it’s all a hit
You and me, no-one else,
it’s nothing else but us right now.

And I ain’t need nothing else,
no-one else but you and I.
And it ain’t me, it ain’t you,
it’s only us, it’s us right now.
You’re findin it, take it,
take it in it’s all a hit.
You and me, no-one else,
nothing else but us right now.
And I ain’t need nothing else,
no-one else but you and I.
And it ain’t me, it ain’t you,
it’s only us, it’s us right now.
You and me, no-one else,
nothing else but us right here.
You and I, no-one else,
nothing else but you and I.
(you and I x4)

Time is not the constant my friend,
You can’t tell me out of that one again.
Yeah like we gave ourselves the Benz.
To a line I’ll never understand.
Speed it up, or if you mean it slow it up a little bit just to speed it back up again.
Ham me up or send me down
and I won’t ham it up or simmer down with it brethren.
Nothin else but us right now

And I ain’t need nothing else,
no-one else but you and I.
And it ain’t me, it ain’t you,
it’s only us, it’s us right now.
You’re findin it, take it, take it in it’s all a hit.
You and me, no-one else, nothing else but us right now.
And I ain’t need nothing else, no-one else but you and I.
And it ain’t me, it ain’t you, it’s only us, it’s us right now.
You and me, no-one else,
nothing else but us right here.
You and I, no-one else,
nothin else but you and I.
