I Still Miss My Mom!

Dear Brothers and Sisters, Last week we heard that those who are pruned will bear fruit.  The word for pruned can also mean lifted up.  A vinedresser would lift up the vine and tie it so that it is in the sun and the light and out of the dirt.  God does the same with…

Remain In Me, Be Connected To Me

Dear Brothers and Sisters, Every human being is always looking to be happy, to find peace and that is why people get married, have kids, work a second job, learn a new language, enter politics or social service, and many other things.  When they see that this happiness does not last usually it is because…

He Will Carry Us, And Our Sins

Dear Brothers and Sisters, A priest friend of mine was saying that I hope all of us can rest in the Mass this weekend.  He said, when Christ continues to be nailed to the cross, I am at peace.  If, for some reason, I sense that he is no longer attached to the cross, I…

Christ Needs A Donkey!

Dear Brothers and Sisters, Palm Sunday begins Holy Week or Passion Week.  Jesus shows us the crazy, passionate love of the Father for us.  How he longs to eat the Passover with us; he who is the true Passover, the true Paschal lamb who comes to die for us.  Imagine if your friend suffered a…

I Would Like To See Jesus

Dear Brothers and Sisters, St. Joseph must have suffered a lot living in close quarters with Mary and protecting her virginity for so many years.  He must have prayed all the time, made many sacrifices and acts of self-denial to consistently live this virtue of chastity.  He is a great saint to go to, if…

Bring It To The Light

Dear Brothers and Sisters, When we see what God has done for us, which is easy to miss or to forget, then we can love him much more deeply ourselves.  We cannot love God unless we are first loved by him.  So, it’s worthwhile, as I often recommend, to make a list of things that…

Zeal For Your Soul Consumes Me

Dear Brothers and Sisters, When the Romans celebrated their victory over the Jews and the destruction of the Temple in 70 A.D., they exhibited the contents of the sanctuary in a procession in Rome.  It consisted of the offering bread like the manna in the desert, the menorah and the tablets of the Commandments.  It…
