Two People Went Up To The Temple To Pray

Dear Brothers and Sisters, We have been speaking about how we respond to the events of our life, the difficulties and the good things as well.  Does that crisis help you to stop and turn back to God, or do you just keep moving along?  Only one of the ten lepers turns back to Jesus…

Pray And Do Not Give Up

Dear Brothers and Sisters, You have the freedom to act and respond to the events in your life which determine in many ways the quality of your life, and of your faith. Maybe in that crisis you took time and had a measured response, or maybe you didn’t, and you regret it.  The crisis I…

How Do You Respond To What God Is Doing For You?

Dear Brothers and Sisters, We start a new theme these weeks leading up to the end of the liturgical year, which is just before Thanksgiving weekend.  I invite you to look at your ability to respond to the situations that God allows in your life.  Perhaps it was a crisis or an opportunity and you…

Lord, Increase My Faith

Dear Brothers and Sisters, We heard last week about how the ‘pursuit of more’ blinded the rich man in the gospel from seeing the sufferings of Lazarus. He was not a cruel man or complacent but he did not see the reality in front of him and by the time he saw Lazarus in the…

He Saw Lazarus At The Side Of Abraham

Dear Brothers and Sisters, We continue the theme Jesus suggested a few weeks ago of ‘counting the cost to be a disciple’ as we begin another school year.

Martha Has Chosen The Best Part

Dear Brothers and Sisters: Two weeks ago we heard about what makes a Christian rejoice? The seventy-two disciples showed us that when the announced the Kingdom of God they were very happy.

Who Is My Neighbor?

Dear Brothers and Sisters: Last week we heard what makes a disciple or a Christian rejoice: it is to announce the Gospel, to speak to others of God. Maybe this couple who were tragically killed in our parish could have been saved and their three kids would not be orphans, if someone gave a Word…

Let Us Boast In The Cross of Christ

Dear Brothers and Sisters, Five weeks ago St. Paul said the gospel that he preached is not his own; it is from God. He was called to do so in his mother’s womb, and his call was a service for the Church. Every Christian is called to serve the Church in some capacity; it is…

Only Christ Will Set You Free

Dear Brothers and Sisters, It is ‘for’ freedom that Christ has set us free. So that you are no longer a slave to your self or to others, you are self-possessed, and in the face of difficulties you are at peace. You are free to say really what you think. Jesus died so that we…
