    Tuesday of the 16th Week in Course 2019 St. Liborius I suppose like many Baby Boomers one of the most memorable films of my lifetime was the Cecile B DeMille epic The Ten Commandments.

    We must always turn our backs on injustice. When we support it, we encourage innocent people to become guilty.

    Injustice and Scandal When we read the story of Elijah, the prophet, we come across two really disgusting people, rulers of the breakaway kingdom of Israel. They are Ahab the king and Jezebel his wife. The history tells us that “Ahab ben Omri did evil in the sight of the Lord more than all that ...read more

    In this age, when Christians of all kinds are being ridiculed, harassed and threatened in many different ways, we need to look at the martyrs of the past two thousand years and take courage.

    Tuesday of the 14th Week in Course 2019 Jacob ben Isaac was a cheat, a liar and a thief. You may recall from an earlier reading in Genesis that he lied, cheated and stole his older brother, Esau’s, first-born blessing. Then, wisely, he left town and took up with Laban, where he married two sisters ...read more

    Our prayer, “Save us, Lord, for we are perishing,” will always elicit a positive response from Our Savior. God never changes His mind.

    Tuesday of the 13th Week in Course Many years ago–well before I was ordained--a parishioner came to me with a sad tale about her brother. He had been raised Catholic in a strong Catholic family but had fallen away from the faith. She was very despondent about the situation, so I reminded her about ...read more

    The Church and her missionaries do all these things in response to the commands of Jesus to love even unbelievers as Jesus loves them, to do to others as they would want others to do to themselves

    Tuesday of 12th Week in Course 2019 St. Dominic Henares, bishop If you look carefully at the long Biblical accounts of the life of Abraham–here identified as Abram before the Lord changed his name–you might wonder why God chose him. The answer is similar to the reply to the question “why does God ...read more

    Contributed by W Pat Cunningham on Jun 19, 2019
     | 259 views

    Do we let our good deeds shine out or do we do them in secret? Is Jesus talking out of both sides of His mouth here?

    Wednesday of 11th Week in Course 2019 A priest I know preached recently on this passage from St. Matthew’s Gospel and pointed out that this part of the Sermon on the Mount appears to contradict the earlier passage that tells us not to hide the good that we do under a basket. So do we let our good ...read more

     | 292 views

    There is no other religion that is so bold as to require forgiveness of enemies, and even doing good for enemies.

    Tuesday of 11th Week in Course 2019 Ss Mark and Marcellian Those who would reduce the status of Jesus Christ to that of a “nice guy who did good things and said nice things” should read this part of St. Matthew’s Gospel several times. Those who would relegate the Church to the scrap heap of ...read more

  • Sex And The Young Christian

    Contributed by W Pat Cunningham on Jun 14, 2019
     | 149 views

    Sex is a bridge between husband and wife, and between generations. That means they must not be abused in the pursuit of the secondary meaning of giving pleasure.

    Friday of 10th Week in Course Virtue: Chastity There’s an anecdote that is at least a half-century old, because I first heard it in high school (at this point you should state a disclaimer that this homily is not written for pre-teens). An organization announced a lecture by some out-of-town ...read more

    The docility of Mary is the opposite of willfulness of her sister Martha (Self-will run riot)

    Recently I read about a Sunday school class for three-year old’s. Their lesson for the day was the story of Jesus’ visit to the home of Mary and Martha. Afterwards, the teacher asked, “What would you do if Jesus were coming to your house today?” One little girl quickly replied, “I would tell my ...read more

    Monday of Pentecost Week 2019 Feast of Mary, Mother of the Church Whatever utopian vision human beings must embrace–whether fascism, Marxism, socialism or any other “ism”–that vision and every other one collapses when faced with the reality of sin. Today, on the feast of Mary, Mother of the ...read more

    Contributed by W Pat Cunningham on Jun 8, 2019
     | 253 views

    If Christians disagree about strategies and persons to work with, that may just be God working with our weaknesses to write straight with crooked lines.

    Tuesday of Pentecost Week 2019 Feast of St. Barnabas I can’t imagine, at the end of one’s life, any better way to be thought of than what we read about the Apostle Barnabas: “he was a good man, full of the Holy Spirit and of faith.” What more does a man need in life? We’ll come back to the life of ...read more
