The Easter season concludes in a week with Pentecost. How are we preparing for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit? In today’s First Reading, just after the Ascension, the disciples...

05/28/17 Seventh Sunday in Easter - Fr. Damian

In our Gospel today, we hear Jesus in his prayer to the Father. In fact, it is known as the priestly prayer of the Lord Jesus. Jesus knew that the end of his time on earth was approaching. Yet, in his prayer, our Lord focuses on humanity. He prayed for us. One important aspect of his prayer was the fact that he prayed for eternal life. This is...

05/25/17 Ascension - Fr. Reggie

We don't think enough about the Ascension.  In fact, only those who pray the Rosary seem to think about it at all. Yet, it is a crucial part of Christ's mission and message. It is the culminating moment, the finale, the final whistle, the moment in which his victory will be enshrined in heaven for ever. Jesus ascends into...

05/25/17 Ascension - Fr. Damian

Does the Solemnity of the Ascension have meaning for us today? Or was it simply a historical event that happened two thousand years ago? Is it essential to our faith and our salvation? We find the answer to these questions in today’s Scripture readings and the Apostles Creed Prayer.   First, the Ascension is about Jesus returning...

05/21/17 Sixth Sunday in Easter - Fr. Reggie

On the Sixth Sunday of Easter, we’re reminded not only of all the reasons for our hope but the need to share those reasons with others as well. The Easter season has two weeks to go, and just as Our Lord ascended and left his disciples to continue his work, we have to be ready for the return to Ordinary Time that should be no less...

On the Fifth Sunday of Easter Our Lord reminds that that we are called to continue his work and to achieve even greater things than he accomplished during his earthly ministry.

05/14/17 Fifth Sunday of Easter - Fr. Damian

The Beautiful Woman, that is the Blessed Virgin Mary, said to the child Lucia: “Recite the Rosary every day in order to obtain peace for the world.” She also said to the three children: “When you pray the Rosary, say after each mystery: O my Jesus, forgive us, save us from the fires of hell. Lead all souls to Heaven, especially...

Deacon Tony Conti Fourth Sunday of Easter Lectionary: 49 From today’s Gospel: “But whoever enters through the gate is the shepherd of the sheep.  The gatekeeper opens it for him, and the sheep hear his voice, as the shepherd calls his own sheep by name and leads them out… the sheep follow him, because they recognize...

05/07/17 Fourth Sunday of Easter - Fr. Damian

04/30/17 Third Sunday of Easter - Fr. Reggie

The Easter season is a time for rejoicing that Our Lord has shattered the bonds of death through his Resurrection. We celebrate his victory because it is our victory as well. He didn’t just shatter the bonds of death for himself, but for all of us. St. Peter in today’s First Reading proclaims to the astounded crowds at Pentecost...

04/30/17 Third Sunday of Easter - Fr. Damian

The Gospel of St. Luke alone describes this particular incident of the Lord coming to these two disciples on the road to Emmaus. Of all the Resurrection appearances of Christ, maybe we can relate to this one most easily because the Emmaus story is really our story. These two followers of Christ don't appear anywhere else in the Gospel. We don't...
