“Are you greater than our father Abraham, who died?Or the prophets, who died?Who do you make yourself out to be?” John 8:53 This verse above comes from a longer passage about Jewish leaders who confronted Jesus about His apparent oneness with the Father and His apparent power over death. They doubted His words. They challenged […]

The LORD said to Moses,“Go down at once to your peoplewhom you brought out of the land of Egypt,for they have become depraved.They have soon turned aside from the way I pointed out to them,making for themselves a molten calf and worshiping it,sacrificing to it and crying out,‘This is your God, O Israel,who brought you out

Even now, says the LORD,return to me with your whole heart,for I am gracious and merciful. Joel 2: 12-13 This passage has recently been a powerful one for me. It’s those two little words at the beginning…. “Even now.” We may ask questions like: Isn’t it too late for the Lord to forgive me? Haven’t

To honor St. Patrick today, I figured we could gain something from some of his actual words: “So I turned with all my heart to the Lord my God, and He looked down on my lowliness and had mercy on my youthful ignorance.” This really struck me today. St. Patrick knew that sometimes, he had

The scriptures from today’s liturgy are all about asking the Lord for what we need. The following passage is from today’s Gospel.

Our Lenten journey has begun. How is everyone doing so far? Among the words of Jesus from today’s Gospel, we read the following: “If anyone wishes to come after me, he must deny himselfand take up his cross daily and follow me.”(Luke 9:23) These three things Our Lord requires of us are NOT EASY, but

When Jesus met the Samaritan woman at the well, He challenged her to change. I wonder if she thought she COULD. But the important thing is that HE knew she could. And thus, His challenge. She did not run in anger and humiliation. Instead, she not only accepted His challenge, but she left her water

Today’s Responsorial Psalm made me think of how our prayer on the sidewalk can feel. The photos beneath each stanza give us images on which we can reflect. May our trust always be in the Lord. Even when we feel like we are calling to Him from out of the depths. R. With the Lord

40 Days for Life is about PRAYER. 40 Days for Life is primarily about PRAYER. Many of our participants pray the rosary on the sidewalk. What a beautiful prayer witness those beads make. Today, October 7, is the Feast of the Holy Rosary for many of our Catholic brothers and sisters. How can we be
