Do Not Hold This Sin Against Them

Dear Brothers and Sisters: As we enter into this last week of Easter, when Christ has already ascended to heaven, the whole Church is praying for the coming of the Holy Spirit to give us courage and strength.  The experience of Easter and our parish Mission have given us many things to ponder and hopefully…

Make It Easy For Them To Enter

Brothers and Sisters: We have been hearing many beautiful readings during this time of Easter and many of them show us the importance of changing our life, of experiencing the resurrection and turning more decidedly to the Lord. Peter found his courage, Paul changed his way of thinking, and last week Paul told us that…

Think As God Does, Not As Man

Dear Brothers and Sisters: Jesus came to turn evil into good, to overcome death and to give life, to forgive us from our sins, and all of this is possible through the resurrection.  Even from a terrorist attack in Brussels Jesus can bring good from such destruction and violence.  Jesus came so that you and…

The Master Has Need Of It

I had the good fortune to make a silent retreat at the Trappist Monastery in Genesee, NY two weeks ago.  It was wonderful to live the hours of the Divine Office with the monks punctuated throughout the night and day, and in the beautiful setting of their monastery on 1,200 acres of land, with spring…

He Was Dead And Has Come To Life

Dear Brothers and Sisters: The mission of the Church is to be a sign of love and unity to others, to be and to make disciples of all the nations.  If the Church is not missionary it will die. In the fifteenth chapter of Luke there are three stories: the lost sheep, the lost coin,…

I Am Not The Right Guy

Dear Brothers and Sisters, We continue to take a look at why we do things, why does the Church exist, and why do you come to church? It is an important question that people may never reflect today. Jesus tells us very clearly that the mission of the Church is to go and make disciples….
