01/21/17 Third Sunday in Ordinary Time - Fr. Reggie

Today’s readings teach us that this fleeting world is just a stop on the way to a greater and better one that will last forever. If we get bogged down in the things of this passing world, we’ll pass away with them. The key to avoiding this is spiritual detachment. In today’s First Reading the prophet Jonah begrudgingly warns...

01/21/17 Third Sunday in Ordinary Time - Fr. Damian

What is the kingdom of God? The word "kingdom" means something more than a territory or an area of land. It literally means "reign" and the power to "rule" and exercise authority.

010718 - Epiphany - Fr. Reggie

In a homily, St Bernard of Clairvaux said that when we look at the Baby Jesus, it’s as though God the Father sent a purse full of his mercy. It was a very small purse, but it was very full.

12/31/17 Holy Family - Fr. Reggie

Today’s Solemnity of the Holy Family, within the Christmas octave, reminds us that our family is a bedrock of love. We count on them and we know that they count on us. That bedrock also reminds us that we can always count on the love of God as well. In today’s First Reading (Sirach 3:2-6,12-14) Sirach reminds us that we should not...

12/31/17 Holy Family - Fr. Damian

Do you know the favor of the Lord? After Jesus' birth, Mary fulfills the Jewish right of purification after childbirth. Since she could not afford the customary offering of a lamb, she gives instead two pigeons as an offering of the poor. This rite, along with circumcision and the redemption of the first-born point to the fact that children...
