Martha and Mary (7/16)

This Sunday we will hear the short Gospel account of Jesus visiting Martha and Mary (Luke 10:38-42). Committed Christians experience increasing desires for solitude and generosity. Committed communities of believers – parishes – witness the same. Sadly, such can be especially difficult to find. Intentional disciples want to pray silently, to sit at the feet...

Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, a young woman shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel (Isaiah 7:14).

8 Great Things about Mary’s Assumption (8/15)

Mary is unique. The Second Person of the Blessed Trinity is born of her flesh. God the Son took residence in her womb and shared her very life.
