Matt Talbot

Posted: November 28, 2012 in Uncategorized

Matthew Talbot was an Irish alcoholic born to a poor family in 1856. He is recognised among Christians as the patron saint of alcoholics (though not officially recognised as a saint) and is known for his courage and commitment while taking the alcoholic “pledge”. He became a Third Order Franciscan in 1890 as part of his devotion.

When he was an alcoholic, he stole a fiddle in order to pay for his alcoholic beverages. Later, after he had taken the pledge and committed himself to his faith, he made a point to try and give money back to the person who owned the fiddle, but unfortunately he could not find him.

Crucifixion

Posted: November 8, 2012 in Uncategorized

Jesus has changed me for the better, helping me to understand life and death much better, and helping me have a better outlook on life. I really regret not having the faith and ability to stand up for my beliefs and admit to my faith. What’s next? I’m next. I will be crucified next. I knew this would lead to trouble, I was Jesus’ wingman.

RIP Jesus

Jesus is starting to say things that might get us in some trouble now, and of all things, he’s including a WOMAN in our group! That definitely goes against everything the rabbis taught us about women being incomplete. There’s a start of tension in our group, especially from Judas, who says that he is really getting tired of being looked down upon by others for his discipleship.

Anyway, I guess I’m starting to agree with him. Jesus just said that we are going to Jerusalem. This is where it gets troublesome. I’m not sure if I like that idea.

Watch this!

So good.

John the Baptist

John the Baptist just baptised Jesus in the river Jordan. He was highly religious and had many followers, encouraging us just like Jesus to worship God.

We don’t understand why, as good as John intends, Jesus allows him to baptise part of God himself. Whatever. We know he means well, and we don’t understand everything about God and Jesus anyway.

This picture appeals to me because it shows that Jesus is always with us, and that he is the good shepherd.

A centurion ran at Jesus, and told him that he wished him to heal his servant who was lying paralysed. Jesus knew that the centurion believed in him, and healed the servant as he wished.

“Go to your house and he will be healed,” he said to the Centurion.

 

21st October

Today we followed Jesus into the temple, but he was astonished at all of the shops and markets that were set up in the temple. He began angrily rushing at them and tipping over their tables, preaching, “Isn’t it taught that my house will be a house of worship?”
