“May the Lord make you increase and abound in love for one another and for all…so as to strengthen your hearts, to be blameless in holiness before our God and Father.”  These are Saint Paul’s words to the Thessalonians from our second reading this week.  He is looking toward the final judgment and making clear what

November 25 – The Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe

2018-11-19T17:15:44+00:00

We enter our final week of the liturgical year.  It is also the week, when more than any other, we pause as Americans to give thanks for all the blessings which we have received and the many gifts we have to be thankful for.  Our gospel on Thanksgiving Day recounts the story of the ten lepers

November 18 – Thirty-third Sunday in Ordinary Time

2018-11-12T13:12:08+00:00

November 17 – St. Elizabeth of Hungary Our readings recently have been increasingly about faith and the importance of trust in God AND following where God leads us.  Our second readings from Hebrews have reinforced that Jesus is our model and salvation.  Our first reading this week closes with,  “Those who lead many to justice will shine

Jesus provides us with clarity this week as the scribes try to trip him up.  Which commandment is the greatest, they want to know?  Realize that we are not just talking first out of ten.  No, there were 613 laws which Moses gave in the Torah.  But Jesus did not focus on the 613 or the

October 28 – Thirtieth Sunday in Ordinary Time

2018-10-22T19:55:34+00:00

In our gospel this week we hear the story of the blind Bartimeaous, who throws away his cloak in total trust, obedience and faith in the Lord.  He doesn’t walk away because the cost is too steep (the wealthy man).  He doesn’t place conditions for following (James and John).  His cloak is all he has, but

In our gospel today we hear “Teacher, we want you to do for us whatever we ask you.”  How many times do we approach God in this way?  I know I certainly do so repeatedly ‘even though I know better.’  But as Jesus tells us, “we do not know what we are asking.”  In other words,
