Time to Unleash

11/5/2018
More
We enter into the powerful encounter between an understanding scribe & Jesus, which led to Jesus telling the scribe, "you are not far from the kingdom of God." (Mk 12:34) As disciples who have been transferred to the kingdom of the Beloved Son (Col 1:13), the Church of Detroit is hungry to embrace the New Evangelization, and to unleash the gospel like never before...

A Fresh Yes

In chapter 10 of the Gospel of Mark, we hear of the encounter between Jesus and a rich man who asked Jesus, "what must I do to inherit eternal life."

Intimacy & Worship

9/3/2018
More
In chapter 7 of the gospel of Mark, we hear Jesus criticize some of the Pharisees & Scribes with words first delivered through the prophet Isaiah, "this people honors me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me, in vain do they worship me." This reflection looks at the intimate and transformational power of the worship of God that Jesus speaks of in John 4:23 "The hour is coming, and is now here, when true worshipers will worship the Father in Spirit and truth; and indeed the Father...

To Whom Shall We Go?

8/27/2018
More
Bishop Fulton Sheen once said, "the greatest love story of all time is contained in a little white host." This reflection takes a close look at the famous "bread of life" discourse of Jesus in the Synagogue in Capernaum. We're meant to live in this love story, to be renewed in it day in and day out, and most spectacularly, by the Eucharist. No matter what is happening in our lives, world and even Church...through the Eucharist Jesus continues to strengthen us to share the very conviction...

Taste & See

More
Many a time we've heard the famous passage from Psalm 34:9 "taste and see the goodness of the Lord." Powerful words indeed...inviting us to LIVE for God's glory, imbued with God's presence.

Living with Substance

Growing in the Prophetic

6/25/2018
More
Baptism plunges us into God, filling us with God's Holy Spirit and making us, as St. Peter describes "a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people of his own, so that you may announce the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light." (1 Peter 2:9) In this verse we can see a biblical root for the teaching that we are baptized "priest, prophet & king". This reflection touches on the priestly and kingly dimensions of Christian life, and then focuses on the prophetic...

Sin & Love

6/11/2018
More
After Original Sin, Adam went from divine intimacy with God to hiding from God; afraid of His voice and filled with fear, tension, shame and division. The price paid for our healing was the cross, the debt we owe is love...

The Real Presence

6/4/2018

God's Love & Our Vocations

More
On Good Shepherd Sunday, and World Day of Prayer for Vocations, we consider the vocation, the call, the God has given all of us: to live as disciples of Jesus, sons & daughters of God, in a life of divine love that leads us to live in holiness. When we fully embrace our primary vocation, we are ready to embrace our secondary vocation: the stable plan/state of life & special path God will lead us down as we live the life of discipleship he's called us to.

Cut to the Heart

3/20/2018
More
While revealing what the New Covenant would be like through the prophet Jeremiah, the Lord tells us "I will place my law within them and write (also translated engrave) it upon their hearts." So deeply does the Lord want to impress his love into our lives, so deeply...that we can confess we've been cut to the heart, and transformed for His glory, by His love!
