Pharisees and Scribes

What’s in My Way?

The True Self

Are You Ready?

8/11/2019
More
We are not called to be pew potatoes! No! God has blessed us all with gifts – gifts that must be shared. Just like eating bon bons while binge-watching a show, if we don’t use the gifts God gives us, then our spiritual gluttony can leave us feeling like sloths. We need to be active. In today’s parable, the servants didn’t just sit around. They actively prepared for their master’s return so that they would be ready for when ever he might come. The same is true for us.

Vanity of Vanities

8/5/2019
More
What we hear in Ecclesiastes is tht we can get so caught up in ourselves and in the things around us that we lose sight of what is really important and the things that really last – God and the blessings that flow from God, like our family and our friends. Being thankful for our blessings and enjoying our blessings and most importantly sharing our blessings with others are ways that we can store up for ourselves treasure in heaven.

Let the Dead Bury the Dead

6/30/2019
More
We were not created to be alone with our stuff. We were created to be part of the community. We must resist the temptations that pull us out of our community – that try to isolate us, for it is when we feel alone that we are must vulnerable to give in to temptations.

Duration:00:07:12

The Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ

6/23/2019
More
Just like we heard in today’s Gospel, just as Jesus wants to be share a meal with the crowd, Jesus is waiting for us…he is waiting for you. It is Jesus who waits in the Eucharist. It is Jesus who waits in the Tabernacle of his divine presence.

Duration:00:08:39

Trinity Sunday

6/18/2019

Those who are touched by the Trinitarian love flowing from Christian marriages in turn can share that love with those around them – either through the specific service of vocations to the priesthood, diaconate and consecrated life, or through other acts of love and service for the people around us.

Duration:00:08:11

Pentecost

6/10/2019
More
The message of Pentecost is a reminder to us of the gifts given to us at our baptism and confirmation. We must pray for the grace to stir the flame of the Spirit within us so that we can go out into a world that desperately needs to hear a message of mercy, hope and peace.

Duration:00:06:40

Ascension Sunday

6/2/2019
More
The point of the Ascension, in the imagery of the Creed that we recite in the mass every weekend, is that what sits at the right hand of the Father is a human being just like you and just like me in every way except sin.
