PALM SUNDAY

30Mar

We look at Jesus' entrance into the Sacred City of Jerusalem.  Two things come to mind: Helplessness and Thinking problems.  Both are essential in getting closer to God in Christ.

PASSION FOR LIFE

27Mar

Today I got the news that my niece was born in to the world.  The news is such a contrast with our readings.  The ominous darkness of the passion of christ is moving in as we see the jews seek to stone jesus.  But the passion of Christ is light even in darkness, hope even in destruction.

INAUGURATION

25Mar

Solemnity of the Annunciation is what we celebrate today.  I knee hit the floor as we say the creed.  We begin our anticipation of Christmas, 9 months away.  It is beginning to look a lost like Christmas for Jesus has entered our world in the womb of Mary.

WANTING OR GIVING

25Mar

Why are the Israelites worn out by the journey?  Why is their patience thread bare?  We let St JoseMaria Escriva guide us through this reality a bit.

WHY CONFESSION TO A PRIEST

21Mar

We look at confession because  in the season of Lent purification is the name of the game.  What better way to be purified than going to confession pouring our guts, purging our soul and tasting the sweetness of mercy and forgiveness.

JOSEPH

21Mar

We look at the life of Joseph, the husband of Mary and the foster Father of Jesus.  His life is a good pattern of holiness for our life.  He is a patron of the firm resolution.  We look into his life that we may look into our own.

MOUNTAINS INTO ROADWAYS

18Mar

We reflect on a few words from the readings this Wednesday of 4th week of Lent.  We pause to allow the words of Jeremiah and Jesus give us fresh insights in to life and obstacles and grace and freedom.

JOHN 3 16

14Mar

We look at one of the most quotable passages of Sacred scripture.  We break it down word by word.

REMEMBER THE GIVING AND THE GIFT

14Mar

We look at the stations of the cross in light of this annual spring cleaning the church gives us as Lent continues.  We reflect on the God's motivation and Man's response as seen in the first reading.  Then we tie it all together with a glimpse into the life of Nicodemus. 

00:0000:00

WITNESS PROGRAM

13Mar

We reflect on a few words from Pope Francis, Pope Paul VI and of course Jesus.  All of it boils down to this witness program Jesus set up 2000 years ago, not program of protection but one of projection.
