"Do everything for the glory of God."

(1 Corinthians 10:31)

My Thoughts Are Not Your Thoughts, Nor Are Your Ways, My Ways

During this time in what is known as the Ordinary Time season, we spend a considerable amount of our time considering and reflecting on the teachings of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  And especially over the past few weeks we have encountered a number of His parables.  We remind ourselves that parables are designed

Who Do You Say Jesus Is?

Within the Gospel reading from the 21st Sunday in Ordinary Time we are present for a dialogue between Jesus and His disciples in the region of Caesarea Philippi.  “[Jesus] asked His disciples, ‘Who do people say that the Son of Man is?’  And they said, ‘Some say John the Baptist, but others Elijah, and still

The Seed is the Word of God

During this portion of the Ordinary Time season as we work our way through the Gospel of St. Matthew, we encounter a number of parables of our Lord.  On the 15th Sunday in Ordinary Time this year we hear the Parable of the Sower.  “And [Jesus] told them many things in parables, saying: ‘Listen!  A

The Call to Preach the Word of God

Through Your Holy Resurrection

At long last, following the discipline and sacrifice of the Lenten season we have arrived at the glory of the resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  On this Sunday we will hear the first reactions of the apostles as they are confronted with the empty tomb and grow in faith that Jesus is

The Way to Jesus

As we approach the end of the Lenten season this year we focus on two of the miracle stories within the Gospel of St. John.  On the Fourth Sunday of Lent we hear the miracle of the healing of the man born blind and on the Fifth Sunday of Lent (Passion Sunday) we hear the

Pray, Fast, Give

As February comes to a close we enter the season of Great Lent, a season to begin the spiritual practices which allow us to unite ourselves with the Passion and Death of our Lord Jesus Christ and grow closer to Him in our journey of faith. In the Gospel reading of Ash Wednesday we hear

To Cast and To Mend

As we now find ourselves in the Ordinary Time season following the Christmas and Epiphany solemnities, these Sundays speak to us in a different way than the Ordinary Time Sundays much later in the year.  These Sundays are in some ways an extension of the Solemnity of the Epiphany.  Although on that particular day we
