A New Hope – Luke 2:1-7

Luke 2:1-7 – And it came to pass in those days that a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be registered. This census first took place while Quirinius was governing Syria. So all went to be registered, everyone to his own city.

Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David, to be registered with Mary, his betrothed wife, who was with child. So it was, that while they were there, the days were completed for her to be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn. (NKJV)

This year. This week  we are starting a new series based on Star Wars and what better place to start than the movie that started it all, Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. In this movie we are introduced to Luke Skywalker, a young man from the desert planet of Tatooine. He runs into two droids that had a special message for “Old Ben” Kenobi, a hermit. It is then revealed that Ben is really Obi-Wan Kenobi, a Jedi Master. The message is from Princess Leia Organa of Alderaan. She tells them of the plans of the Death Star and she knew that if anyone and save the day it would be the Jedi Master. To leave Tatooine they hired the help of the smuggler Han Solo and his faithful ally Chewbacca. The group together had to help guide Luke to his destiny with training in the force and trusting in it. He had to follow his destiny to save the universe. To challenge Darth Vader’s contraption of death and stop the space station in it’s tracks.

This remind me of another story. Someone who had a destiny to fulfill to save the galaxy. His name is Jesus Christ. Just as Luke Skywalker was to give hope to the rebel alliance and the galaxy so has Jesus to all of us.  Continue reading “A New Hope – Luke 2:1-7”

It’s party time! Happy New Year everyone. I want to apologize to you all that I took such a long break from this site. As I pray for you please pray for me as well. This year was a learning experience for me and hopefully for you too as a reader.

I wanted to bring to you all a different kinds of homilies. Something video game and anime inspired. Something you would think about when you pick up the controller or check out your favorite manga. There will be more in the future. The pace I was going before wore me out. I will work out one a week and if God is willing I will return to two.

I am open to suggestion from anyone. I am open to pray with and for anyone. Let’s make this a great year and let’s start by putting God first.

Happy New Year
