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...

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.

Divine Mercy (4/28)

Today’s Gospel offers special help toward strengthening our faith (John 20:19-31). Jesus shows mercy on the faltering faith of the apostles – and so, too, on ours.

Easter Wednesday (4/24)

We have a keen desire to find the Risen Lord Jesus. It is within us because God put it there. God wants us to find Him and to remain with Him. For some the quest spans many long hard years.
