St Therese and Mercy

Celebrating the Feast of St. Therese in the Year of Mercy seems very significant to me.  After all, Mercy is mentioned about 75 times in her writings.  Her path to holiness, the Little Way, was cleared and made ready by Mercy.  And, a pivotal moment in her life is when she wrote and made the [...]

“You Are A Priest Forever…”

To devote ourselves to Jesus in the Eucharist, to the Church, to the interests of the glory of God, to the extension of the Kingdom of Our Lord, these are our duties. And do not say that, because of our humility, it is too great a vocation. As adoring souls, we must lead all souls [...]

"With confidence, tell the Madonna and her son Jesus about your expectations, your hopes, your joys and your sufferings, and trust in the help of Jesus and the support of Mary." - Pope Francis Mark your calendars and please plan on joining us...

Pro Orantibus Day

Something else that Our Lady’s Presentation makes me think of is perseverance. In the evocative iconography associated with this feast, the Child Mary is shown moving away from her parents as she climbs the steps of the Temple. Mary does not look back and, in a clear reference to the evangelical admonition, she moves forward [...]

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 [...]
