The Here is the Now ~~ The Empty Tomb is the Place

Week of April 1, 2018

If the stones of the tomb could talk, what would they say?  If the rock that had to be rolled away to open the tomb could speak, what story would it tell?  Would it want us to know that it all happened at 2 AM or 3 AM in the morning?  Would they tell us of the […]

Here and Now in the Desert

The Gospel of the first week in Lent always finds us in the desert with Jesus.  As it is proclaimed, He is led there by the Spirit, driven into the desert where He is tempted, where He finds time to focus on prayer and deepen His union with the Father.  We are called to do […]
