  • Advent Vigilance

    Contributed by Paul Andrew on Oct 22, 2018
     | 5 views

    Advent is a time to renew a theocentric approach in an often-anxious world.

    Advent1C Welcome to this First Sunday of Advent. Today’s Readings from Luke’s Gospel is a little unsettling. In it, Christ seems to be describing the end of the world. Listen to his words: “There will be signs in the sun, the moon, and the stars, and on earth nations will be in dismay, perplexed ...read more

  • The Holy Spirit Of Witness And Division Series

    Contributed by W Pat Cunningham on Oct 21, 2018
     | 49 views

    The Spirit empowers, but the Spirit also divides. Because the Holy Spirit causes us to change our lives, and to summon our family and friends to the Christian way of life, conflict often emerges in relationships.

    Thursday of the 29th Week in Course 2018 The phrase, “fire that Our Lord came to cast down upon the earth” is reminiscent of an encounter Jesus had in his earthly life with James and John, sons of Zebedee. Some town had refused hospitality to Jesus and the disciples, so those two asked Jesus for ...read more

    FOBO “fear of better options?

    28B I saw a tee-shirt that said “fomo made me do it” (Fear Of Missing Out.). Did the man in our Gospel today have that, or FOBO “fear of better options,” or FODA, 'fear of doing anything?' The man ran up, knelt down, and asked Jesus, “…what must I do to inherit eternal life?" It’s like, “What is ...read more

  • The Gospel Of Mercy And Compassion Series

    Contributed by W Pat Cunningham on Oct 13, 2018
     | 122 views

    Luke’s writings show the mercy and compassion of Jesus.

    Feast of St. Luke 2018 St. Paul had a long and fruitful ministry. He is certainly one of the patron saints of the new evangelization, but St. Luke, our day’s patron, is not far behind. Luke was a gentile who joined Paul on the missionary journey in which for the first time he crossed from Asia ...read more

  • Twenty Four Hours To Live

    Contributed by W Pat Cunningham on Oct 12, 2018
     | 597 views

    Suppose you knew that you would face your God sometime tonight. What would you spend your day doing? We would not waste one second of that precious time.

    Twenty-Eighth Sunday in Course 2018 Twenty four hours to Live Let me invite you all to do what we in science call a “thought experiment” for a while. Suppose, through a vision or a medical diagnosis you attained a 99% certainty that you will not wake up tomorrow morning. Suppose you knew that you ...read more

  • Christ The King

    Contributed by Paul Andrew on Oct 11, 2018
     | 127 views

    Today on Christ the King we recall that the essential character of kingship means personal allegiance to one person. To say Christ is King implies that we are subjects.

    33B There’s a famous remark from a Modernist priest named Alfred Loisy: “Jesus came proclaiming the Kingdom, and what arrived was the Church.” Maybe his remark was a little like those T-shirts that say something like, “My parents went to the Grand Canyon and all I got was this lousy ...read more

  • Thanksgiving

    Contributed by Paul Andrew on Oct 4, 2018
     | 221 views

    For the fact that Mother Josephine proclaimed that I was good for nothing, thank you. For the sarcasm of the Mother Superior: her harsh voice, her injustices, her irony and for the bread of humiliation, thank you.

    Thanksgiving What did one turkey say to the other when they saw the Pilgrims? They look nice. Maybe they’ll have us over for dinner. Over the past two decades, much of the research on happiness can be boiled down to one main prescription: give thanks. It increases positive emotions, reduces the ...read more

  • End Times, Apocalypse, Last Judgement, Second Coming

    Contributed by Paul Andrew on Oct 1, 2018
     | 119 views

    Begin with “end of the world” in mind.

    33B In a best-selling book that first came out in the late 80’s, Stephen Covey identified what he called the ‘seven habits of highly effective people.’ The second habit the author lists is: Begin with the End in Mind. 1). Today, on the Thirty-Third Sunday of Ordinary Time, the Readings are ...read more

  • La Viuda

    Contributed by Paul Andrew on Oct 1, 2018
     | 96 views

    Las dos viudas de nuestras lecturas eran pobres de bienes materiales pero habían guardado el tesoro de la piedad y de la fe.

    32B Este día leemos acerca de la ofrenda de la viuda. [Chiste] -Mamá, ¿me das dinero para ese pobre hombre que está gritando como loco? -Y ¿que es lo que está gritando? -Helados, Helados! Cuando se trata de recaudar fondos, les encanta a los párrocos traer a colación a esta viuda, ya que ...read more

  • Saint Francis For The Twenty-First Century Series

    Contributed by W Pat Cunningham on Sep 29, 2018
     | 240 views

    St. Francis stands out in the thirteenth century, perhaps the last great Catholic century, and a recovery of his spirit would be a good start toward converting the culture of this twenty-first century.

    October 4, 2018 St. Francis of Assisi The saint we celebrate today is probably the most famous one of the second Christian millennium, and I suspect also the one we need most to emulate today. Our modern culture is steeped in materialism and consumerism. I can prove that by asking you to ...read more

  • The Conditional Forgiveness Of God Series

    Contributed by W Pat Cunningham on Sep 29, 2018
     | 206 views

    The point is this–God will forgive any sin, any offense. Nothing will make Him so angry as not to forgive. Unless. Unless we come to that confession, to that communion, with an unforgiving heart.

    Twenty-First Sunday After Pentecost Extraordinary Form “So also shall my heavenly Father do to you, if you do not forgive–every one of you–forgive your brother from the heart.” From the Holy Gospel according to St. Matthew. In nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritus Sancti, Amen. There are very few ...read more

  • Amarás A Dios —“ Con Todo Tu…..

    Contributed by Paul Andrew on Sep 28, 2018
     | 91 views

    “El amor es un acto de perdón interminable, una mirada tierna que se convierte en un hábito.”

    31B El secreto de la felicidad nos lo revela hoy Nuestro Senor Jesucristo a través del Evangelio de este dia en cuanto al mandato que el nos da de, “amarás al Señor, tu Dios, amarás a tu prójimo como a ti mismo” y en ese orden. Si ese orden se altera, surgen problemas como lo vemos en una ...read more

  • Vanities, Poverty And Destitution Series

    Contributed by W Pat Cunningham on Sep 22, 2018
     | 260 views

    We must find in our heart the vast chasm, the infinite need that only Infinite Goodness and Truth and Beauty can fill.

    Thursday of the 24th Week in Course 2018 St. Vincent de Paul The book we call Ecclesiastes is often referred to as Qoheleth, for the Hebrew name of the author, here called “the Preacher.” The first words form one of the major themes of theology, that all things human are perishable, that even what ...read more

  • Eucharistic Fix- Part 2 Series

    Contributed by Paul Andrew on Jun 29, 2018
     | 1,075 views

    In the study, one person related not having a fear of death, and another related that death and resurrection are a continual process following the psychic deaths she had while in her addiction.

    20B I want to continue with an article I read from a university in Santa Barbara about Catholic Mass and its healing implications for the addicted person. In the study, a psychological sense of alienation and loneliness appears to be a common experience for the addict, because the drug of ...read more

  • Servant Leadership Series

    Contributed by Paul Andrew on Aug 27, 2018
     | 1,174 views

    They learned to match their “I.Q. with their “I do;” if anybody wants to be first (a leader) the person has to be willing to serve all.

    25B The apostles get a little seminar on servant leadership from Jesus in our Gospel today. They learned match their “I.Q. with their “I do;” if anybody wants to be first (a leader) the person has to be willing to serve all. In reality everyone is acknowledged as a leader because everyone has ...read more
