Praying Helped Him To Have Mercy
Dear Friends, When you have nothing of your own, it is easier to see how God provides you with something. This was the experience of a young man who lost his hoodie and was sleeping outside on a cold evening, because he was announcing the gospel, and the older man who was with him gave…
He Is The One Who Found Us
Dear Brothers and Sisters, Who is the person who hid this treasure, and why did they hide it? What do you think? Keep in mind that this is the seventh parable about the Kingdom of heaven. From what I read the treasure is put there by the Holy Spirit so that we can find Christ and…
The Master Is Prudent and Patient With Evil
Dear Brothers and Sisters, Every week a few more of our brethren return to celebrate the Eucharist together as one family. What a beautiful sign it is to those around us that especially the elderly come out to worship God in this way. If you have underlying conditions and are not yet ready to come…
God’s Seed Is Always Fruitful
Dear Brothers and Sisters, The fruits of the Holy Spirit are love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, gentleness, modesty, self-control and chastity. These gifts, or fruits, are virtues that each one of us desires and hopes that we will have in many occasions of life. God will give them to us if he sees that we…
My Yoke Fits Me Well!
Sunday, July 5, 2020 At that time Jesus exclaimed: “I give praise to you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, for although you have hidden these things from the wise and the learned you have revealed them to little ones.

Carrying the Cross is the Work of a Disciple
Dear Brothers and Sisters, I like very much the first reading where this woman of influence did a favor to Elisha who then promised her that she would have a child in one year. It shows us that the smallest act of charity we do for others is not forgotten as we heard last week….
The Lord Is A Mighty Hero
Dear Brothers and Sisters, Perhaps the best way to understand the gospel this week is to hear the wonderful story of the calling of Jeremiah. The Lord said to him: “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you to be a prophet to…
To Remember Is To Make It Present Again!
Dear Brothers and Sisters, How important it is for us to remember, to have a memory of what God has done for us. The memory is the storehouse of the soul; in it we have all our experiences. Without a memory we cannot finish our sentence. Our memory helps us not to take things for…
God Is A Family!
Dear Friends, Bernadette Soubirous was fourteen when the Blessed Mother appeared to her eighteen times in 1858 in what was then a garbage dump. She had yet to receive her first Communion, already had asthma because of the house where she lived and could hardly read and write. She was greatly moved by these encounters…
We Need The Dew Of The Spirit
Dear Brothers and Sisters, On this ancient feast of Pentecost, fifty days after the resurrection we celebrate the gift of the Holy Spirit to the Church. How much we need this Spirit these days. We are like dry flour that without moisture cannot be one loaf of bread or a lump of dough. We who…
