In the exchange between God and Samuel, we hear an important insight: "Not as man sees does God see, because he sees the appearance, but God looks into the heart." In light of this observation, may we focus on how we look on the inside!

Isaiah, Paul and John the Baptist all offered their lives in service for the Lord. As we follow their example, may the words of the Psalmist, "Here am I Lord, I come to do your will" echo in our hearts!

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
