The Privilege and Cost of Freedom

As we approach the Fourth of July and celebrate our freedom as a nation, I reflect on what this gift of freedom means in my daily life. I am certainly blessed abundantly to live in a country in which freedom allows me so many basic rights and privileges. I am also reminded of so many...

Receiving Jesus

In today’s Gospel, Jesus states clearly, “Whoever receives the one I send receives me, and whoever receives me receives the one who sent me” (Jn. 13:20). Can I believe that God in His provident love and care for me sends people into my life each day for a specific reason and mission? I meet someone...

Are We There Yet?

In today’s Gospel, Jesus very clearly states that the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to those who receive it as little children. Children live in the present moment, see things as they are, appreciate the simple things of life. Do we go through our day with the eagerness of a child, excitedly anticipating the end of...

FEAST – Immaculate Conception (12/8)

The two essential conditions to be united perfectly with God are found in their fullness in Mary. The first condition is that there be not even the slightest trace of self-will. That is, that there are no earthly attachments leading us to acquire wealth, power, pleasure and honor, nothing – no thing – moving us...

Prayer Seeks God (12/7)

“Be still and know that I am God” (Psalm 46:10). Solitude grows the interior life. Intentional disciples exercise a daily discipline or habit that includes pausing from activities and removing distractions in order that their inner strength – their soul – will be seek God. Absent daily prayer that creates contemplative moments, genuine spiritual vitality...

Preaching Notes – 2nd Sunday Advent (Sun) December 5

On the Second Sunday of Advent, the Church directs our attention to John the Baptist (Luke 3:1-6). Everything in John’s life is informed by who God created him to be; namely, preparing people for the Messiah’s arrival. There is no personal gain in what he does. Indeed, he ultimately will surrender his life rather than...

1st Sunday Advent (11/28)

Advent begins today. It is time to shake off weakness. If we have been lethargic in our blessed Lord’s service, run now to Him with love. Let Him make us strong and generous.

Persevering Prayer (11/15)

“As Jesus approached Jericho a blind man was sitting by the roadside begging” (Luke 18:35). Holding fast to the actual miracle Jesus performs, the earliest commentators further explain that the blind man also symbolizes those who are unable to see eternal light. How easily we can fail to recognize God in our personal struggles along...
