I saw it with my own eyes
I saw it with my own eyes…..
Several months ago a little girl came up to communion with her big sister. From where she stood, the statue of St. Michael under the altar rail was right at her eye level.
With her little hand, she reached out and touched St. Michael on the head. Then she stooped over and touched the devil’s head but immediately pulled her hand off and wiped... Read More
St. Francis Novena
Today begins the Novena to St. Francis of Assisi, the beloved little poor man who is the patron of our beloved Pontiff…Pope Francis! We got so caught up in soaking in every moment of the Papal Visit – via television – that we didn’t get this blog posted sooner! Yes, all of us here are thoroughly enjoying this “Pope Mania” that has swept... Read More
Missionary of Mercy and Encounter
We are celebrating the feast of the apostle and evangelist Saint Matthew. We are celebrating the story of a conversion. Matthew himself, in his Gospel, tell us what it was like, this encounter which changed his life. He shows us an “exchange of glances” capable of changing history.

Wounds of Christ

insofar as I now live in the flesh,
I live by faith in the Son of God
who has loved me
and given himself... Read More

It will decide what will get you out of bed in the morning, what you will do with your evenings, how you will spend your weekends, what you read, who you know, what breaks your heart, and what...

O Lord, I am Your Servant!
One of the things that I love to meditate on are the many paradoxes of our Catholic faith, because they are not what they seem to be at first glance, and if you would understand them you must take the time to look more closely. Understanding paradoxes require a disposition like Our Lady who with patience and openness, “pondered in her heart”. I also like to muse on paradoxes... Read More
Put, Deepen, Nurture, Keep Safe
God of might, giver of every good gift,
put into our hearts the love of your name,
so that, by deepening our sense of reverence,
you may nurture in us what is good
and, by your watchful care,
keep safe what you have nurtured.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
(from the Collect... Read More
