2/25/18 Second Sunday of Lent - Fr. Damian

What can blind us or keep us from recognizing God's glory and presence in our lives? Sin and unbelief for sure! Faith enables us to see what is hidden or unseen to the naked eye. Through the eyes of faith Abraham recognized God and God's call on his life. He saw from afar not only what God intended for him, but for his descendants as well - an...

2/25/18 Second Sunday of Lent - Fr. Reggie

We are still at the beginning of Lent, this season of repentance and penitence, but today the Church is already talking to us about the Resurrection. In the transfiguration of Jesus in today's Gospel, Peter, James, and John get a glimpse of Christ's eternal glory, the glory he claimed fully after the resurrection....

2/18/18 First Sunday of Lent -Fr. Damian

Can it be Lent already? What happened to Christmas? Yes, indeed, Lent is already upon us and our old friend St. John the Baptist is back in the readings, this time telling us to repent.  We expect to be told during Lent to repent, but why? What is so bad about sin if it makes me feel better?   John the Baptist, we were told earlier...

2/19/18 First Sunday of Lent -Fr. Reggie

Two images from nature dominate this First Sunday of Lent. In these images we find the key for living the next six weeks deeply and fruitfully, as God is hoping we will live them. The first image is that of the desert. After Jesus was baptized, but before he began his years of public ministry, St Mark tells us in today's Gospel...

02/11/18 Sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time - Deacon Tony

Deacon Tony Conti Sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time  Lectionary: 77   From our first reading we hear: “As long as the sore is on him he shall declare himself unclean, since he is in fact unclean. He shall dwell apart, making his abode outside the camp.” How often do we condemn ourselves and declare ourselves unclean? Sin...

02/11/18 Sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time - Fr. Damian

Do you seek the Lord Jesus with expectant faith? No one who sought Jesus out was refused his help. Even the untouchables and the outcasts of Jewish society found help in him. Unlike the people of Jesus' time who fled at the sight of a leper, Jesus touched the leper who approached him and he made him whole and clean. Why was this so...

2/4/18 Fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time - Fr. Damian

Who do you take your troubles to? Jesus' disciples freely brought their troubles to him because they found him ready and able to deal with any difficulty, affliction, or sickness which they encountered. When Simon brought Jesus to his home, his mother-in-law was instantly healed because Jesus heard Simon's prayer. Think about this: "Can...

2/4/18 Fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time - Fr. Reggie

Today’s readings remind us that if the Gospel is really good news to us, we should share it. In today’s First Reading Job is in desperate need of some good news after being so afflicted. He’s lost property, family, and health. Life has become pure drudgery for him with the rest or reward that should follow still far from...

1/28/18 Fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time - Fr. Reggie

Already in the first chapter of St Mark's Gospel we are witnessing a dramatic encounter between Christ and the devil. The devil makes his appearance through one of his slaves, a demon who has taken possession of a child of God. When Jesus, the Savior of sinners and conqueror of evil, approaches this possessed man, the...

1/28/18 Fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time - Fr. Damian

Do you believe that God's word has power to set you free and to transform your life? When Jesus taught he spoke with authority. He spoke the word of God as no one had spoken it before. When the Rabbis taught they supported their statements with quotes from other authorities. The prophets spoke with delegated authority - "Thus says the...
