Peace on this Divine Mercy Sunday

…”Jesus came, although the doors were locked, and stood in their midst and said, “Peace be with you.”  It’s Divine Mercy Sunday.  Much like Jesus did for his early followers, He desires to come to us and bring us the gift of mercy and peace.  “Peace be with you.”  The comforting and reassuring words of [...]

Happy Easter

A few weeks back I had the blessing of meeting with all of our candidates for Confirmation in 2018. They were in small groups working their way around the Church so they could reflect on different dimensions of our life of faith (welcome, service, commitment, Christ-centered). In each of the small groups, I began by [...]

Palm Sunday

…”Take Lord, and receive all my liberty, my memory, my understanding, and my entire will, all I have and call my own.  You have given all to me.  To You, Lord, I return it.  Everything is Yours, do with it what You will. Give me only your love and your grace, that is enough for [...]

Looking to the Family

…”Jesse sent and had the young man brought to them.  He was ruddy, a youth handsome to behold and making a splendid appearance.  The LORD said, “There—anoint him, for this is the one!”  Then Samuel, with the horn of oil in hand, anointed David in the presence of his brothers; and from that day on, [...]

In the Midst

…For the first two weeks of Lent I have asked questions to start my homily.  Week one:  why the door?  Week two:  why the tent?  The door reminds us (as we hear in our psalm today) to keep our hearts open to the Lord.  Last week Jesus said, no need for a tent, simply call [...]

Transformed in Christ

…”Beloved: bear your share of hardship for the gospel with the strength that comes from God.  He saved us and called us to a holy life, not according to our works but according to his own design.”   To you Lord, I return.    The prayer from St. Ignatius reminds us that everything we have, we can [...]

A First Step

…”Jesus answered him, “Again it is written, You shall not put the Lord, your God, to the test.”  Then the devil took him up to a very high mountain, and showed him all the kingdoms of the world in their magnificence, and he said to him, “All these I shall give to you, if you [...]

God Will Never Forget Us

…”Can a mother forget her infant, be without tenderness for the child of her womb?  Even should she forget, I will never forget you.”   What a powerful image of God and hopeful promise we receive in our first reading from the Prophet Isaiah.  God will never forget us!  That’s the promise that God makes to [...]

Be Bold in Love

…”You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your heavenly Father, for He makes His sun rise on the bad and the good, and causes rain [...]
