  • Not To Be Called Rabbi, Father Or Teacher? How's That? Series

    Contributed by W Pat Cunningham on Jan 25, 2020

    Not only did the Son of Man come to serve, not to be served, He insisted that the ones who follow Him take that as the pattern of life.

    Tuesday of the 3rd Week in Course 2020 St. Thomas Aquinas This Gospel from a late chapter in St. Matthew’s Gospel has caused a great deal of ink to be spilled, especially in the dialogue or dispute between Catholics and Protestants. Catholics call priests “Father,” and the pope the “Holy Father.” ...read more

  • Sixth Sunday In Ordinary Time - 6th Sunday, Year A

    Contributed by Paul Andrew on Jan 20, 2020

    Jesus builds a shield around the law or Commandments in order to create more space and distance so that we won’t even bump up against the fence or sit on the fence, but rather keep a healthy distance.

    There was a large group of people. On one side of the group stood a man, Jesus. On the other side of the group stood Satan. Separating them, running through the group, was a fence. The scene set, both Jesus and Satan began calling to the people in the group and, one by one - each having made up ...read more

  • Who Claims Our Devotion? Series

    Contributed by W Pat Cunningham on Jan 18, 2020

    Our devotion is not to a book, not even to a church building, and not even to our fellow parishioners. We derive our identity as Catholics from our devotion to the lord of the Sabbath, the lord of our lives, Our Lord, Jesus the Christ.

    Feast of St. Agnes 2020 Tuesday of 2nd week in Course For generations after the Hebrews settled in the Holy Land, they acknowledged only God, the Lord, as their leader. But in the time of the prophet-priest Samuel, these tribes began to worry him about a king. The whole point of the covenant God ...read more

  • Jesus Was Baptized "to Fulfill All Righteousness" Series

    Contributed by W Pat Cunningham on Jan 12, 2020

    We might make the mistake of thinking that Jesus stopped growing in the Spirit at His baptism.

  • The Gospel Succeeds Even In An Age Of Fecklessness Series

    Contributed by W Pat Cunningham on Jan 11, 2020

    We need to continue on the path we were set on by Jesus long ago–the path to holiness. That means giving up everything of this world that keeps us from imaging Jesus and Mary.

  • Keep Salt In Yourselves

    Contributed by Paul Andrew on Jan 10, 2020

    5th Sunday, Year A, Fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time

    The late Pentecostal preacher David du Plessis was once approached by a Christian who complained that people don’t seem thirsty for the Lord these days. Without missing a beat, du Plessis replied, “It’s not that they are not thirsty enough. It’s that we are not salty enough!” Since moisture ...read more

  • The Love Of The Trinity Shown In The Compassion Of Christ Series

    Contributed by W Pat Cunningham on Jan 4, 2020

    In our lives, love takes form as self-giving. In this, we imitate Our Lord, who humbled Himself and gave Himself for our salvation.

    Tuesday after the Epiphany 2020 In these four short verses penned two thousand years ago by St. John, there are nine repetitions of some form of the noun or verb “to love.” What is love? St. Thomas Aquinas tells us that Love is the proper name of the Holy Spirit. Just as the Logos, the Son who is ...read more

  • The Presentation Of The Lord

    Contributed by Paul Andrew on Jan 3, 2020

    Lessons for Ladies and Gentlemen through Anna and Simeon

  • Party On! Series

    Contributed by W Pat Cunningham on Dec 31, 2019

    We all know that there were parties last evening, some that lasted well into the morning hours. But I venture to say that these parties were not celebrations of religious faith, such as the ones implied by today’s Scriptures.

    Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God Party On! Today’s Scriptures are so brief that if our minds are not focused, we might not remember any of them. I’ve wondered if that was an act of mercy on the part of those who back in the 1960's put together the three-year cycle of readings, and saw New ...read more

  • Last Or First? Series

    Contributed by W Pat Cunningham on Dec 28, 2019
    based on 1 rating

    At the beginning of the new year and decade we must ask ourselves if there is any hint of anti-Christ in our hearts.

    New Year’s Eve 2019 Last or First? Our holy Scripture today is taken from the apostle John. The Gospel teaches about the beginning, and the letter tells us about the end. And both beginning and end must be centered on Our Lord Jesus Christ. In fact, everything we do in the new year, the new decade ...read more

    Catholic Bible Sunday

  • Glory To God In The Highest Series

    Contributed by W Pat Cunningham on Dec 21, 2019

    Silence to praise. That’s not a habit this world often engages in.

    Christmas Eve 2019 Glory to God in the Highest The words to the hymn have been silent now for near four weeks, but as in the profound stillness of that first Christmas Eve, the very Word of God, the Son of God was made manifest, so the loud anthem will resound this evening from every tongue: ...read more

    based on 1 rating

    2nd Sunday, Cycle A

    Two cockroaches were munching on garbage in an alley when one engages a discussion about a new restaurant. "I was in that new restaurant across the street," said one. "It's so clean! The kitchen is spotless, and the floors are gleaming white. There is no dirt anywhere--it's ...read more

  • Our Confession Of Sin Series

    Contributed by W Pat Cunningham on Dec 14, 2019
    based on 1 rating

    Like Abraham, Jacob and David, and like all of our individual ancestors, we fall short of the mark too often–committing venial sins of omission and commission, and perhaps even total turn-aways from God’s plan.

    Tuesday of the 3rd Week in Advent 2019 Our Confession of Sin I have to admit that this is one of my favorite weekday Masses in the whole Lectionary, because we hear the genealogy of Our Lord Jesus. These old Hebrew names don’t necessarily roll off the tongue, but the list is important, because ...read more

  • Baptism Of The Lord

    Contributed by Paul Andrew on Dec 12, 2019

    I once heard a preacher who said something like, “My old man has died with Christ in baptism but sometimes the devil does CPR and manages to resuscitate him.”

    Romans 6:3 Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life. The ...read more
