Why did Jesus offer himself as "food and drink"?  The Jews were scandalized and the disciples were divided when Jesus said "unless you eat my flesh and drink my blood, you have no life in you." What a hard saying, unless you understand who Jesus is and why he calls himself the bread of life. The miracle of the...

Forty days after his Resurrection, Jesus Christ ascended into Heaven; every year we celebrate that event on the Feast of the Ascension. But before he ascended, our Savior promised to remain with his Church "until the end of the age" (Matthew 28:20). The most remarkable way in which he has fulfilled this...

8/15/18 Assumption - Fr. Reggie

The foundations of Christ's Kingdom are laid, but he hasn't yet finished building it up. He is still extending its borders and gathering more and more people into it. This is the work of the Church militant, the Church on earth: to build up Christ's Kingdom, to bring more...

Last week Jesus performed the multiplication of the loaves, and all the people who witnessed the amazing miracle wanted to make Jesus king. Making Jesus king was the same thing as asking him to lead them in a revolution against the Roman Empire. The Israelites at that period in their history didn't have...

Christians never stop being disciples; Our Lord always has something to teach us and is always there to help us. In the First Reading Elisha, who was the disciple of the prophet Elijah, learned...
