The healing of the paralytic in Capernaum reveals the connections between faith, forgiveness and healing. May our faith grow each day as we draw closer to the Lord and one another.

As Jesus heals the leper we comprehend an important truth: the Lord meets us where we are - in our brokenness and frailty - and helps us grow in newness of life. Simply put, we become more when we are touched by Christ.

Jan 15, 2020

As Jesus heals a number of people in Capernaum, we see a fundamental aspect of his earthly ministry: the power to make us healthy and whole.

Jan 14, 2020

The Lord casts out an evil spirit which recognizes Jesus in the synagogue in Capernaum, revealing his power and authority over Satan's realm.

Jan 12, 2020

The baptism of Jesus recalls the gift of our own baptism and how our lives are now configured to Christ. May we live this great gift as we put our faith into practice.

The words of John Baptist remind us of a crucial spiritual point, "He must increase, I must decrease." May we seek to let Christ increase his rule in our hearts each and every day.

Jan 10, 2020

As Jesus heals the leper in the Gospel of Luke, we witness the profound compassion of the Lord, who longs for our TOTAL healing - body, mind, heart and soul. May we draw near to Christ for this healing and in turn seek to be agents of healing whenever possible.

The First Letter of John cuts through any warm and fuzzy notions of love with a decisive evaluation: we reveal our love for God through our love for one another. May this practical test guide and direct our actions, powered by the love of Christ.

Fr. Andrew Ricci - www.studyprayserve.com

 

Jan 8, 2020

The First Letter of St. John offers a beautiful and moving reflection on how God's love moves in and through us into the world. May the Lord's love flow through us today!

Jan 7, 2020

The multiplication of the fishes and loaves in the Gospel of Mark uses the same language that we use to describe what happens at Mass when the priest takes the bread and wine. May we be nourished every time we go to pray, so that we can nourish others with the gift of our lives.

Fr. Andrew Ricci - www.studyprayserve.com

 

Jan 6, 2020

Now that the holidays are passed many people kick off the New Year with a resolution. Here's one to consider for the good the soul: making Mass a weekly habit, and inviting as many people as possible to join us.

The intensity of the quest of the Magi and the treasures they offered the Christ child can teach us about the conviction and quality we bring to the Lord each and every day.

Jan 4, 2020

The invitation of Jesus to "come and you will see" to two people will become for them a life changing experience as they spend time with the Lord. The same is true for us; may we actively create opportunities to drawn near to Christ, so that we might be filled with His grace.

Jan 3, 2020

The First Letter of St. John offers a message of consolation and challenge. As children of God we are part of the Lord's family, united in his love; yet this membership means that we take seriously the destructive role of sin as we strive to live in a manner that is worthy of Heaven.

Jan 2, 2020

John the Baptist offers an example of discipleship in the Gospel today. As the crowds flock to his preaching and baptism of repentance, John consistently redirects their attention toward Jesus. May we do the same in our lives today.

Fr. Andrew Ricci - www.studyprayserve.com

 

Jan 1, 2020

As we honor the Blessed Virgin Mary as the Mother of God, we acknowledge that she is also our Mother. Given to us by Christ, we claim this relationship every time we affirm our faith in her Son.

Dec 31, 2019

As we bring the year 2019 to a close, perhaps it makes sense to take a brief walk back through the last twelve months and reflect on how our lives have changed. Where did we experience moments of growth? Where did we experience God's grace? May we look back and count our blessings as we prepare for a New Year.

The blessings and burdens of the Holy Family inspire us to face our joys and sorrows with the grace of Jesus Christ.

Dec 28, 2019

There is a grim aspect to the Gospel reading today. Innocent baby boys, slaughtered to satisfy Herod's need to protect his ego, recall for us the reality that cruelty, hatred, evil and sin are part of our human condition. May this terrifying event inspire us to respect all life as a precious and sacred gift from God.

Dec 27, 2019

On this feast of St. John - the Apostle and Evangelist - we look to John's example and consider how we are called to proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ in our lives today.

Stephen is the first person to give his life as a witness to his faith in Jesus Christ. He spoke with a wisdom and spirit that none could refute, and he offers us an example about how we show our love for the Lord every day.

Dec 25, 2019

God loves us. Plain and simple. Warts and all. God loves us and meets us where we are, not in polished perfection and immaculate attire, but in a humble manger as a displaced person. God loves us so much that he sent his Son to die and rise that we might have eternal life.

May we all drop to our knees at some point today and say thank you...

Merry Christmas, my friends!

Dec 24, 2019

Have you ever tried to get a gift for "the person who has everything" and been frustrated in the process? Everything we have comes from God...everything! The Lord needs nothing from us, but asks for only one thing: a loving heart that reaches out to others.

December 24, 2019 - Cathedral Rectory - Superior, WI

Fr. Andrew Ricci - www.studyprayserve.com 

 

Dec 22, 2019

Both St. Paul and St. Joseph respond to God's call, but they do it in very different ways. Their examples reveal that the Lord offers many ways that we can offer our lives, based on our ability and talent. There is nothing to stop us...except ourselves.

Dec 21, 2019

Elizabeth was aware of God's presence through both the baby in her womb and the woman at her door. May we actively seek the Lord's presence in our lives...so that we are ready when we returns!
