The first reading from the Letter to the Colossians offers us a rich insight about Jesus as the Lord of all creation. Knowledge, however, is not enough; what matters is how we put that knowledge into daily practice.

Jesus takes the initiative and Peter responds in today's account from the Sea of Galilee. Our lives follow the same pattern: how will we respond to the Lord's invitation?

The Book of Sirach exhorts us to "conduct our affairs with humility," and through truth, honesty and perspective we can confront the pride in our hearts with this powerful (and often underappreciated) virtue.

Aug 31, 2019

The Lord's parable about the three servants illustrates how we can all use wisely our resources even if we have all been blessed in greater and lesser ways. Point: how will we use what we have been given today?

Aug 30, 2019

The Lord uses a parable to raise an obvious point: it's wise to be prepared! May this wisdom inspire us to be prepared for the day when the Lord will call us out of this world.

Aug 29, 2019

The death of John the Baptist makes it clear that in no uncertain terms there is a price for following the Lord. Our "yes" to God means that we will follow a path where sacrifice will be part of the offering of our lives.

Aug 28, 2019

Today's readings all continue from yesterday, and the Psalm and Gospel remind us that rather than flee from our sins we call upon the grace and strength of God. After all...who do we think we're kidding?

August 28, 2019 - Cathedral Rectory - Superior, WI

Fr. Andrew Ricci - www.studyprayserve.com

Aug 27, 2019

Both Jesus and the Psalmist show us that God knows us through-and-through. Rather than pretend (and become hypocrites,) we have the opportunity today to acknowledge our sins with humility and receive the grace of God.

Fr. Andrew Ricci - www.studyprayserve.com

 

Aug 25, 2019

The readings this Sunday both challenge and console us to foster unity, endure discipline, and focus on the Kingdom of Heaven. While life will not be easy, God will give us what need for the journey.

Fr. Andrew Ricci - www.studyprayserve.com

Aug 24, 2019

St. Philip offers us an example about how to invite another person (in this case Nathaniel) to meet Jesus. We, too, can be a bridge that brings someone to the Lord today.

Jesus, the Master Teacher, offers brilliant clarity in teaching about the great commandment to love God and one another. The teaching is simple and direct; the challenge is living out this commandment each and every day.

The Lord uses the image of a banquet to teach us about the power, beauty and expectation of the Kingdom of Heaven. Our journey through this life provides countless opportunities for us to prepare our souls to join this heavenly feast. Are we ready?

Aug 20, 2019

The Gospel of Matthew highlights how the temptation of riches can undermine the central place of the Lord in our lives. Rather, we are invited to constantly examine what is most important in our hearts as we seek to put Christ first before all else.

August 20, 2019 - Cathedral Rectory - Superior, WI

Fr. Andrew Ricci

Aug 18, 2019

The Letter to the Hebrews describes our life as a great race before a cloud of witnesses. Life is difficult, yet with God's grace and the help of people, angels and saints we can face our struggles with the conviction that we will cross the finish line into Heaven.

Rebuking the disciples, Jesus calls the children to come near so he can bless them. It's a powerful image for us as we strive to be a source of Christian faith so our kids can know Jesus and be blessed by him today.

On this feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary we see her swift response - in word and action - to God's call for her life. Mary example inspires us to do the same as we proclaim the greatness of the Lord in our lives.

Matthew's Gospel offers a couple of key insights into God's love for humanity. The Lord seeks us out when we are lost and astray with a compassion that knows no limit; our task is to humbly receive this gift with the openness of a little child.

Fr. Andrew Ricci - www.studyprayserve.com

The Letter to the Hebrews stresses the power of faith in the life of a Christian. Faith strengthens both the head and the heart, and as we foster our faith we are empowered with the grace we need to face the challenges before us.

Fr. Andrew Ricci - www.studyprayserve.com

Aug 10, 2019

The Lord teaches a key concept - the Paschal Mystery of death to new life - through the example of a grain of wheat. What needs to "die" in us today so that God's grace can raise up something new and blessed in our hearts?
