The Lord's power over life and death in the Gospel of Luke reminds us that Jesus is the Christ and Messiah.  May we let his grace transform our hearts.

The Scriptures touch upon a common theme: responding with faith in a time of trial.  Isaiah, James, and Peter all face difficult moments, and in their responses we can examine our own lives and consider how we draw upon our faith when life tests us.

Throughout her life Mary had moments of profound sorrow: the death of the Holy Innocents; the flight into Egypt; relocation to Nazareth; the rejection and betrayal of her Son; his horrific death on the Cross.  Yet Mary's faith in God inspires us to recognize that in these painful moments God is near, offering us the strength we need to carry on.

The crucifixion of Jesus reveals the depth of God's love as Christ endured suffering and anguish which connects with all aspects of human cruelty, evil and sin.  Furthermore, in the light of the Cross we can face the crosses of our own lives with hope: for just as Jesus was victorious over his Cross, the Lord will help us carry our own.

Loving other people sounds like a wonderful thing...until we encounter a situation that is hostile, antagonistic, and angry.  Yet when we strive to love others in these painful situations we find ourselves drawing near to Jesus, who teaches us to love our enemies and gives us the grace to do so.

Light comes from many sources and is crucial for our gift of sight.  Fr. Andrew invites the Cathedral School kids to consider how to let the light of Jesus shine in their hearts and out into the world.

As Jesus calls and empowers the Twelve to be Apostles, we see how the Lord continues to work in our lives...calling us to follow and then sending us into the world to proclaim the Good News of the Kingdom of Heaven.

The Lord's healing ministry reminds us that God continues to bring healing into our world today.  May we examine our lives and reach out to others with the healing grace of Christ.

On this feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, we read in Luke's Gospel of the birth of Jesus...mindful that if Mary had not been born then God's plan for our salvation would not have taken place.

St. Paul writes to the people of Corinth that we are servants and stewards.  As we care for one another and use the resources we have received, we recognize that one day we will all stand before the Lord for judgment.

It's a great fishing story: Christ speaks to the people from a boat, directs the nets, catches the fish...and gains new disciples!  What's more, these disciples will grow to become apostles who will continue to do the Lord's work and serve as an example for us today.

Sep 5, 2018

As the crowds gather around Jesus we see two central elements of his earthly ministry: healing the sick and driving out demons.  The Lord's work reveals what the demons already know; he is the Christ, the Son of God who has the power to save and set us free.

The Lord teaches with authority and power in the Gospel today.  Learning is not just for school; rather, we have lessons to learn throughout life.  May we look to the challenges of today and engage our faith with confidence.

The Lord points out that the spiritual battle happens on the inside - in our hearts - and within this precious real estate we have the opportunity each day to do our part to keep it clean.

The parable today reveals a crucial insight: We will be measured by what we do with what we have.  Comparing ourselves with others is often a waste of time; what's crucial is using what we have been given to the best of our ability.

Jesus offers a parable to the disciples about being alert and prepared, reminding us that preparation is a part of our daily life...and reveals our wisdom when we put it into practice.

The Lord urges his disciples to be awake and prepared.  Every day we have opportunities to stay "spiritually fit" as we call upon God's grace for the demands we encounter.

John's death vividly reveals the potential price tag for our faith.  Yet we can find new strength to face the injustices of life through our conviction that we are made for more...in this life and in the life to come.

On this feast of St. Augustine (the patron of my Diocese) we pause to reflect on God's love for us.  God is love, and this love is meant to find a home in our hearts and then flow out into the lives of those we meet.

Aug 26, 2018

The passage from John's Gospel marks a low point in the active ministry of Jesus.  The people have seen healing miracles and the multiplication of the fishes and loaves, but when they hear the Lord's teaching about the Eucharist they turn away.  It is in this rock-bottom moment that Peter reminds us that we face hard times with the power of our faith in Christ.

Aug 25, 2018

Do you want to be great in the Kingdom of Heaven?  Then follow the path of service.  Our example is Jesus, and the Lord will walk with us every step of the way.

Nathaniel is brought to the Lord by Philip and testifies that Jesus is the Son of God.  We, too, can acknowledge that Jesus is Lord, and in doing so we have the opportunity to put our faith into practice.

Aug 23, 2018

The parable in the Gospel of Matthew shows a variety of responses to an invitation.  The same is true for our response to the Lord's invitation to live our faith.  What will we do today?

Jesus offers a parable that reveals God's amazing generosity toward us...inspiring us to extend that generosity to one another.
