Mary and Elizabeth - pregnant with Jesus and John the Baptist - meet and rejoice at the goodness of the Lord.  Both women knew hardship, yet their faith inspires us to see God at work...in good times and in bad.

The presider's chair in any Catholic Church is a place of authority, overseen by a bishop who is a successor to the apostles...of which St. Peter is the rock upon which Jesus builds His Church.  May we draw strength from the Lord, our Great Shepherd, and offer our lives to care for those entrusted to us.

As Mary and Joseph presented their infant son in the Temple, they encounter Simeon and Anna who give praise to God for the fulfillment of the Lord's promises - the Messiah has come bringing light into the world!  As his disciples may we continue to share this light as we present ourselves for service to God and one another.

St. Paul's conversion shows how God calls us to make changes in our lives as we draw close to Jesus Christ and proclaim the Good News.  The Lord reaches out to us in our weakness, inspiring us to turn away from our sins and become living witnesses to the world.

The Magi were guided through the illumination of knowledge and faith to the Christ Child.  We, too, can be guided through the challenges of life when we we use our minds to the best of our ability and get down on our knees to pray for wisdom.

Our knowledge of Mary flows from our knowledge of her Son, and her example teaches us how to be living witnesses in the face of adversity as we continue to proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ to the world.

Happy New Year!

The Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph helps us see how God works through each of our families.  We face our struggles, make sacrifices, support each other, and receive blessings with gratitude...and through it all we grow in grace.

Mary's "yes" to God offers us an example, for as she participated in God's plan of salvation so we, too, have a daily opportunity to let the Lord's work be done through our words and actions.

He is the King of Kings, and Lord of Lords...and yet he came into our world to teach us about his heavenly Father with compassion and tenderness.  May we draw near to his Divine Mercy, and say the words of the Good Thief, "Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom!"

Young and old, rich and poor, male and female...they faced their challenges in life as they kept their eyes fixed on Jesus Christ, and now they pray for us with the choirs of angels in heaven.  May the examples of the saints inspire us to live each day - in the midst of the messiness and imperfection of life - with hope they we will one day join them!

These two great figures in the Church had their share of spectacular successes and failures.  They sinned, yet with God's grace they kept their eyes fixed on Jesus - and they are wonderful examples for us today.  May we embrace our faith, return to Christ when we have sinned, and seek the Lord above all else!

The King of Glory comes to Jerusalem, but not in the way that people expect; rather, Mary & Joseph present their baby who is recognized by Simeon and Anna as the the Savior of the world.  Simply put, God comes to us in unique and unexpected ways - inviting us to be on the watch for God's presence in our lives and open to the little ways that the Lord can take our lives and do amazing things.
