4/28/19 Divine Mercy Sunday - Fr. Reggie

This Sunday, as we conclude the eight-day solemnity of Easter and continue into the liturgical season of Easter, we celebrate the gift of divine mercy. It’s easy to forget sometimes that mercy is not something to which we have a right. The Lord has freely given it to us. In the First Reading, we see the power of healing flowing from Peter...

4/20/19 Easter Sunday - Fr. Reggie

St Peter makes a strange announcement to us today.  We are surrounded by the joy of Christ's definitive victory over sin and death, a victory we share through our faith and the sacraments. And Peter mentions this victory. But then he says that he and the other Apostles have been...

4/20/19 Easter Sunday - Fr. Damian

My sisters and brothers in the Lord,   Christ is risen!  You and I are called to believe and we receive our faith through these early witnesses.  Those who have encountered the risen Christ, who appeared only to his disciples.  Such witnesses have a sacred obligation to preach the message of conversion and solvation to all....

04/20/19 Easter Vigil - Fr. Reggie

Much has happened in the last few days. The Sabbath dawns serenely, quietly. Today is a day to wait quietly with Mary, to meditate slowly with her, to go to a lonely place and contemplate the Lord’s death while holding her hand. Holy Saturday is a day to take it all in. It is a day of sorrow and of hope. We must not let Holy Saturday pass...

With this liturgy, we stand at the threshold of Holy Week, the week in which we commemorate the most profound mysteries of life and death, of God and man, of love and sin. We’ve prepared for forty days to step into Holy Week and remind ourselves that by doing so we step into a new life won for us by Christ at a high cost. We mustn’t...

04/18/19 Holy Thursday - Fr. Reggie

Being a Christian means more than just being nice.  It means centering our whole lives, every last detail, on a person: Jesus Christ. Other great religious leaders of history pointed to their teaching. They said, "follow my teaching". Jesus pointed to himself. He said, "Follow me."  When Jesus stood up from...

04/14/19 Palm Sunday - Fr. Damian

Let us try to answer few questions today: 1) Does Jesus weep over my sinful soul as he wept over Jerusalem at the beginning of his Palm Sunday procession?  2) God expects me to produce fruits of holiness, purity, justice, humility, obedience, charity, and forgiveness.  Do I?   Or do I continue to produce bitter...

4/7/19 Fifth Sunday in Lent - Fr. Damian

In today’s Gospel, is it not a powerful story of justice and mercy?  Jesus is on the side of the woman who has been accused of sin and crime. It was an unjust accusation, and the people who brought her had little good in mind. Jesus offers more than forgiveness – he brings mercy. Mercy forgives with compassion and...

Deacon Tony Conti Fifth Sunday of Lent Lectionary: 36 In today’s Gospel, we find Jesus confronted by the angry mob… They were not only eager to condemn and punish the woman caught in adultery... but they were even more eager to catch Jesus defying the Mosaic Law... But Jesus turns the tables on them and asks them to look into...

3/31/19 Fourth Sunday in Lent - Deacon Tony

Fourth Sunday of Lent – Year C Readings Lectionary: 33   Our perception of God has been distorted by many well meaning individuals over the centuries... I often say that Jesus came to show us the true face of the Father... The more we try to make God like us... the further we move ourselves away from Him... Although we were...
