4/17/16 Fourth Sunday in Easter - Fr. Reggie

In “The Joy of the Gospel” Pope Francis said this about joy. I realize of course that joy is not expressed the same way at all times in life, especially at moments of great difficulty. Joy adapts and changes, but it always endures, even as a flicker of light, born of our personal certainty that, when everything is said and done, we...

04/17/16 Fourth Sunday of Easter - Deacon Ron

Homily Summary for the Fourth Sunday of Easter Deacon Landry In order to fully appreciate the impact of today's gospel, it would serve us well to review the chapter 34 of the prophet Ezekiel: To paraphrase: "To the shepherds, thus says the Lord GOD: Woe to the shepherds of Israel who have been pasturing themselves! Should not shepherds...

04/10/16 Third Sunday of Easter - Fr. Reggie

St John paints a picture of heaven for us today. His vision used to be inspiring. But in the last hundred years this image of heaven as filled with choirs of singing angels and throngs of bowing saints has given heaven a bad reputation. It makes people think that heaven is boring. What happened? Why did the idea of...

04/10/16 Third Sunday of Easter - Dn. Tony

Deacon Tony Conti Third Sunday of Easter What type of faith do we practice? Is it a “legalistic faith”… a “Quid Pro Quo faith?”… Or is it an “experiential faith” based upon our personal experience of God working in our lives?… A legalistic faith is dependent upon who does what in...

04/03/16 Divine Mercy Sunday - Fr. Reggie

The gospel seems to have a strange focus today. We’re in the Easter Season, and joy is everywhere. Spring is in the air. The days are getting longer. Christ is Risen! So why does St John keep emphasizing Christ’s wounds in the gospel we just heard? As soon as Jesus walks into the room where the disciples were, he shows them his...

03/27/16 Easter Sunday of the Resurrection of Christ - Fr. Reggie

Three days ago, on the evening of Good Friday, apparent failure loomed large.  Not only was the Lord dead and buried, but the Apostles were holed up in a locked room, fearing for their lives.  Where were all the miracles now? What did the Master's beautiful words mean now? It seemed like God had abandoned...

03/27/16 Easter Sunday of the Resurrection of Christ - Fr. Reggie - Children's homily

As you can see, I have a glass with some juice in it. There are two ways of looking at this glass of juice. Some people would look at the glass and say it is half empty. There are others who would look at the glass and say it is half full. (I Drank all of the juice in the glass.) Well, we solved that problem, didn't we? Now everyone who looks...

03/26/16 Easter Vigil Homily - Fr. Reggie

This is the most blessed and most joyful night of the year as we celebrate Jesus’ resurrection. We are so accustomed to hearing of Jesus risen from the dead that we could say “Oh yea…we know all about it” and miss the grace of entering fully into this celebration, but think about it, Jesus rose from the dead! Death is...

032416 Holy Thursday Summary - Fr. Reggie

The ceremony we are celebrating today, on Holy Thursday, puts us in contact with three thousand and five hundred years of salvation history. With this Mass, we are obeying the command Jesus gave at the Last Supper, as recalled in today's Second Reading: "Do this in remembrance of me." And at that Last Supper, two thousand years ago,...
