Entering into Easter

April 21, 2019

This is the day on which we gather to celebrate the emptiness of the tomb, the fulfillment of the promise that Jesus would rise and the deepening of the belief our world changed forever.  For most of us this day brings us together around family tables with pastel colors, fabulous meals and colored eggs.  We […]

Being Led into the Holiness of this Week

April 14, 2019

All paths bring us to this week.  No matter what kind of Lent we have had, whether it was a rocky road or a dry desert, whether we had mountains to climb or demons to face, we are here.  Did you ever see an athlete prepare for an Olympic event?  Skiers visualize the run, marathoners […]

What Kind of Rock do we Like?

April 7, 2019

In the scientific community the groupings of different kinds of rock fall into three major categories.  They are igneous rock, metamorphic rock and sedimentary rock.  These three are formed differently.  Igneous rock is born of fire.  It is mainly volcanic and is heat pressurized.  Sedimentary rock is formed over years of pressure from above and […]

We Will Be Found

March 31, 2019

Today’s Gospel message is very powerful.  It is one of sadness and pain, one of jealousy and rivalry.  It is a common place in which we find ourselves.  In the story of the Prodigal Son we can find ourselves relating to both sons.  At times we want our own way in our own time.  Give […]

Removing the Barriers

March 24, 2019

As we follow the pathway of discovery to God’s redemptive love, we are invited to approach holy and sacred ground. In our Old Testament reading this week, Moses is out tending the flock and he is drawn into a mystery, a sight he cannot explain, an event he cannot comprehend.  He catches a glimpse of a […]

Facing the Greatest Climb of our Lives

March 17, 2019

Jesus invites us to lace up our climbing boots and hike the mountain of transfiguration with Him. He longs to reveal His true self to us.  Just as He did for Peter, James and John, He invites us personally to the place where He can reveal His true self to us. The other day in […]

Discovering the Path that Leads to Redemptive Love

March 3, 2019

Every path leads somewhere.  Every path allows us a possibility of adventure.  In Lent we place ourselves on a path to discover redemptive love.  At Easter and during the sacred three days of the Triduum, we are to become vessels ready to receive God’s redemptive love.  Since that is the goal and finish line, our […]

Do We Measure Up?

February 24, 2019

Today’s Gospel is rich in depth and upfront in its challenges.  We are to look at our actions and be accountable for the way we react to others.  Jesus says there is no greatness in lending to those who can pay you back.  There is no real sacrifice in loving those who love you.  He […]

Finding Level Ground

February 17, 2019

In Luke’s Gospel account of this important sermon we realize it has noticeable changes than the one found in the Gospel of Matthew, which we are probably more familiar with.  In Matthew the sermon is on a mount.  Jesus goes through a litany of blessing which we all know as the Beatitudes.  In the translation […]
