3/24/19 Third Sunday in Lent - Fr. Damian

This Sunday we speak about repentance and recognizing the presence of the living God. It is our first reading that speaks about Moses encountering a burning bush. This is a story that almost every Christian knows because it has such a strong appeal. How often we might long to encounter the living God in such a way!!   And yet every day we...

3/24/19 Third Sunday in Lent - Fr. Reggie

John Wooden was one of the most successful coaches in NCAA basketball history. His UCLA Bruins won 10 national championships in 12 years. He coached them to 4 undefeated seasons. You might think that John Wooden had learned everything there was to know about basketball. Think again. He often repeated the maxim: “If you’re finished...

3/17/19 Second Sunday of Lent - Fr. Reggie

Sight is a great gift. And its loss is frightening. Sometimes there’s a partial loss of vision, like when we misplace our glasses or a contact lens falls out. That’s bad enough.  But what if we couldn’t see what someone else tells us is there? And what if someone made us a promise that we couldn’t see? This is what...

3/17/19 Second Sunday of Lent - Fr. Damian

One theme of our readings today is the theme of faith. Abraham in the first reading trusts in God, has faith in God, and God promises to Abraham an unaccountable number of descendents. Abraham does believe but as he gets older he begins to think that God must have meant something else. As Abraham gets older he thinks that his descendents will...

03/03/19 Eighth Sunday in Ordinary Time - Fr. Damian

 Are you clear-sighted, especially in your perception of sin and the need for each of one of us to see ourselves correctly as God sees us - with our faults, weaknesses, and strengths? Jesus' two parables about poor vision allude to the proverb: Without vision the people perish! What can we learn from the illustration of a blind guide and a...

03/03/19 Eighth Sunday in Ordinary Time - Fr. Reggie

Today’s readings remind us that if we truly want to recognize, do, and praise the good that we and others do we need Our Lord’s help and the wisdom to not judge a book by its cover. In today’s First Reading Sirach teaches us that the true worth of anyone, including ourselves, is when a trial by fire shakes us up and makes us...
