32nd Sunday in Ordinary Time

Jesus Christ is present, 100% Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity in the Eucharist - that's amazing!  And in adoration we get to spend time with this Jesus, one on one; we get to see this Jesus!  We all want God's presence and God's peace in the midst of our busy lives.  Adoration is that opportunity to give ourselves a break, to experience the peace and rest that only God can bring.  You've worked hard - experience peace for a moment, come to adoration.

30th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Jesus calls us to be His disciples, but true discipleship involves a relationship with Jesus - a relationship built on a thankful, joyful love, not an imposed duty or obligation.  Our Psalm proclaims, "The Lord has done great things for us!"  What great things has God done in your life?  Out of that thankfulness is where we begin to live true discipleship!

29th Sunday in Ordinary Time

God wants to walk with us in our struggles.  Jesus came to us in our sin and weakness and suffering precisely so that He could walk through it with us.  Jesus doesn't avoid suffering, He takes it head on, trusting that not even suffering can separate Him from His Father.  And we as Christians are called to that same mission.  Following Jesus means learning to suffer in love, learning to walk through our difficulties with Jesus, and then to walk through difficulty with others, as Jesus did.

28th Sunday in Ordinary Time

The rich young man comes to Jesus asking what he must do to inherit eternal life.  Having followed all the commandments from his youth, Jesus invites him into the Major Leages, to follow Him in a deeper way...and this good young man walks.  There are lots of 'good' people in this world, but the only thing that matters is whether we are willing to choose Jesus.  Are you willing to put something down in life in order to pick up Jesus?  We've only got two hands: what are you holding onto?

27th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Marriage, Divorce, Homosexuality, Gay Marriage - living in the tension of showing genuine love, care and concern for every person as a child of God and walking with others through any struggle they may encounter, while standing for our belief in marriage as a lifelong covenant between one man and one woman - distinction between supporting a person and supporting actions/lifestyles - let's be the example of faithful love and true care for ALL!

The Pope is in the United States!  And we should be proud: Pope Francis is modelling to us how to show active care and concern for all, especially those pushed to the fringes of society, while at the same time actively upholding the principles we stand by as Christians and Catholics - before Congress, before the United Nations, before the world.  Never be afraid to let your voice be heard!

23rd Sunday in Ordinary Time

Many of us, I think it's safe to say, feel like we have some degree of a spiritual speech impediment: when confronted about Jesus or some aspect of our Catholic faith, we suddenly become tongue-tied - we don't always know the "Why?" behind many of the actions we traditionally do.    But there ARE answers and we CAN know them: by listening, by hearing, by regularly 'plugging in' to Jesus.  So how do you stay plugged into God throughout the week?

22nd Sunday in Ordinary Time

Laws and rules protect the values our nation upholds, and they allow us the freedom to live by these values.  Laws and rules in sports allow for the freedom to play the game.  The laws and rules of God teach us how to be human so that we can have the freedom to live fully human - which means fully happy - lives.  They are not meant to be blindly followed, but to consciously bring us into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.  Then they're not even rules anymore, they're simply the best way to live!
