The boldness of St. Peter is not for a moment. Rather, he displays a steadfast conviction to live his life for the Lord Jesus...not quitting, not giving up...for the resurrection of Christ has changed his life forever.

The first reading and the Gospel feature elements about Peter and Paul.  Both of these men are giants in the early Church, and through their example we recognize that God continues to call new disciples in every generation.

Fr. Andrew Ricci - www.studyprayserve.com

Jun 7, 2019

We can place ourselves in the Gospel of John as Jesus invites Peter to follow him.  Out of love for the Lord we, too, will be called to make our sacrifices as we put our faith into practice.

Jun 5, 2019

Both St. Paul and Jesus speak of the challenges all disciples face from the wolves that seek to tear us out of God's hand.  Knowing that we will face our own spiritual battles, may we fearlessly call upon the Lord for the grace we need to respond with the gift of faith.

Jesus offers a prayer of praise and thanksgiving to the Father, praying for us who believe and follow him as we make our way through the world.

The Lord's ascension into heaven marks a shift for the disciples as they transition from their experiences with Jesus to proclaiming the Gospel on their own.  Life offers us many such transitions as opportunities that help us grow in wisdom and strength...for this life and the life to come.

The disciple Apollos was boldly speaking about Jesus when he encountered other disciples who took him aside and fostered his faith.  Throughout our lives we are called to speak and listen as we grow closer to the Lord.

St. Paul's example in Corinth reminds us that every moment of our day offers opportunities to proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ.  People are always watching and listening; what is the message they receive from us today?

Jesus promises that the Holy Spirit will guide us through this life.  May we call upon the Spirit each day and follow with confidence as we journey toward Heaven.

The challenges that Paul and Silas encountered in Philippi reveal the pattern that all Christians face throughout life.  Yet the strength we need to meet these trials comes not from our efforts alone; we rely on the power of the Holy Spirit to face what comes our way.

Fr. Andrew Ricci - www.studyprayserve.com

May 26, 2019

Jesus assures us that the Holy Spirit will be sent to bring peace to our hearts.  Where do we see the need for peace in our lives today?  May we turn to the Lord who longs to offer this grace to face whatever we find in the world today.

The Lord offers a sobering lesson in John's Gospel that when we follow the God's command to love, the result at times will be hatred from the world.  Our response?  Love....but with both eyes open so that we can address this hatred with the grace of Jesus Christ.

The Gospel of John offers a beautiful insight into the dignity of love that God grants to humanity.  Jesus calls us friends, elevating us to a glorious relationship with God, and empowers us to offer the gift of our lives with this precious grace.

May 24, 2019 - Cathedral Rectory - Superior, WI

Fr. Andrew Ricci - www.studyprayserve.com

May 23, 2019

This short passage from John's Gospel reveals the interaction between the command to love and the gift of joy.  While love often challenges us to stretch our hearts as we care for others, the joy we receive flows straight from the heart of heaven.

Fr. Andrew Ricci - www.studyprayserve.com

May 22, 2019

Jesus teaches in plain language that just like a vine and its branches, when we are connected to Christ we thrive and bear fruit.  Today we consider not only how we can continue to draw closer to the Lord, but also how we might share our lives to bring glory and praise to God in the world today.
