Sixteen Sunday in Ordianry Time   

July 22, 2018

For several weeks we have listened to readings that have recounted just how arduous the work of prophets and disciples can be.

 

Fourteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

July 8, 2018

The prophet Ezekiel, Saint Paul, and the Lord Jesus share something in common in today's scripture readings. They all experience obstacles to their ministry. 

 

 

Thirteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

July 1, 2018

Today we encounter readings that draw us into the mystery of suffering and death.

 

 

Solemnity of the Nativity of John the Baptist

Since June 24 falls on a Sunday this year, the Church has the opportunity for a more intense celebration of the birth of John the Baptist, who is often described as the last of the Old Testament prophets and the bridge between Judaism and Christianity.

 

Eleventh Sunday in Ordinary Time

June 17, 2018

In today's Gospel, Jesus is presented to us as the master storyteller.

 

Tenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

July 10, 2018

Today's liturgy is full of promises. The reading from Genesis promises a final triumph over the power of sin and a return to a new creation.

 

The Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ

On this solemnity we focus our attention on the Body and Blood of Christ. We listen to the story of the renewal of the old covenant, which Moses sealed by splashing the blood of animals on the altar of sacrifice, as well as on the people. 

 

 

Pentecost Sunday

May 20, 2018

Fifty days after Easter Sunday we celebrate the fulfillment of all God's promises in the feast of Pentecost, a feast that has sometimes been called the birthday of the church.

 

 

 

The Ascencion of the Lord

May 13, 2018

Today we celebrate Christ's ascension into heaven and his commissioning of the disciples to carry on his mission in the world.

 

 

Sixth Sunday of Easter

May 6, 2018

In the Gospel for the Sixth Sunday of Easter we are met with an extraordinary challenge: Jesus commands us to "love one another as I love you" (John 15:12).

 

Fifth Sunday of Easter

April 29, 2018

The Gospel and second reading for this Fifth Sunday of Easter emphasize the need for us to remain in Christ, and he in us. 

 

Fourth Sunday of Easter

April 22, 2018

Some city teenagers often scorn and reject farm kids.

 

Third Sunday of Easter

April 15, 2018

Throughout the Easter season, all three of the Sunday readings are taken from the New Testament--the Christian scriptures. 

 

 

 

Divine Mercy Sunday

April 8, 2017

It is not often that the author of one of the books of the Bible comes right out and tells us directly why he is writing what he is writing.
