Martha and Mary II (7/18)

Progress in the interior life leads to sharing love more generously and cheerfully. The contemplative soul becomes the ever more loving soul. When our sights are set squarely on Christ, we meet Him in all our activities.

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...

Spiritual Pursuit (7/9)

The spiritual life likens a child who comes upon a crossroad. The two diverging roads require a decision. Actually the choice remains a daily resolution, even moment to moment. One way leads the soul ever more entirely into the calm and confidence of God’s Kingdom. The other is a riotous self-referential route unable to satisfy....

River of Peace (7/6)

This weekend we hear utterly astonishing words from Isaiah pronounced 800 years before the Messiah’s arrival. These prophetic words are fulfilled perfectly in Christ Jesus the Lord: I will spread prosperity over her like a river, like an overflowing torrent (Isaiah 66:12). The “her” is the new Jerusalem – the Church – which includes each...

Keeping Faith (7/1)

There is nary anything easy about persevering in faith. Saint Therese of Lisieux, the Little Flower, writes of her bitter struggle to keep the faith: “I try to live by faith, even though it affords me no consolation. I have made more acts of faith during the past year than in all the rest of my...

Prayer is Fuel for the Soul (6/26)

Prayer is indispensable to the spiritual life. We even can say it’s very breath. We cannot live the Christian faith without praying regularly. Being Christian means being a person who prays. On our part effort and commitment is required to pray. Although though prayer is something that can be learned and must be learned, it...

Feast Day: Catherine of Siena (4/29)

It was an especially troublesome time into which Catherine Benincasa was born in 1347. The popes had fled scandal-laden Rome and were leading from Avignon in the south of France.  Our blessed Lord placed upon Catherine’s heart and unmistakable mission to champion urgently needed restoration of Church life. Taking to heart Jesus’ words and actions,...
