Isaiah reminds the people that the Lord teaches us. The real issue: Will we listen and put this instruction into practice?

Isaiah prophesies to the people with a blunt message to cast aside fear and trust in the Lord. These words are just as pertinent today as we bring the darkness of fear into the light of faith.

Dec 8, 2021

There is a sharp contrast between the Book of Genesis and the Gospel of Matthew. Whereas Adam and Eve experience the devastating consequences of sin, Mary embraces the words of the angel Gabriel and accepts God's plan for salvation history. May her words inspire us to say "Yes!" to the Lord today.

December 8, 2021 - Cathedral Rectory - Superior, WI

Both Isaiah and the Gospel of Matthew reveal that God cares for us like a zealous shepherd who guards the sheep. May we trust in the Lord to lead and guide us through this life to the next.

John the Baptist fulfills the prophecy of Isaiah as he preaches repentance for the forgiveness of sins. The Reason? To prepare the people to encounter Jesus Christ.

The Gospel of Matthew shows Jesus sending out the Twelve Apostles, empowering them to carry out his work. Their example inspires us to offer our lives for the Lord's service today.

The readings today all point to a time of fulfillment and hope. The "mountain of the Lord" or the "house of the Lord" or even the healing and restoration made possible by Jesus...it all looks to our final destination where the Lord Jesus Christ reigns supreme!

As Jesus calls Andrew to follow after him, we are reminded that the Lord's call echoes in every generation...inviting us to draw near to Christ as we invite others to join us along the way.

The centurion in the Gospel of Matthew reveals his trust in the healing power of Jesus Christ. Familiar with the role of authority, this soldier places himself under the command of Jesus...giving us a powerful example of how we offer our lives in the service of the Lord.

When the going gets tough, the tough get praying! Our help is in the Lord, and we are invited to be vigilant in our prayer as we face the challenges before us.

Jesus uses a fig tree as an example of paying attention to the changes around us. This is true for what we see in nature and discover in our hearts.

Nov 25, 2021

There are some options for the readings today, but a common theme is appropriate: What are you thankful for today? Start with God...and keep going!

Nov 24, 2021

The spiritual life is not easy, and the Gospel of Luke today makes it clear that perseverance is a crucial component in the life of faith. Hang in there!

The response today (taken from the Book of Daniel) reveals all creation giving praise to God. How will we echo this refrain in our lives today?

We claim Jesus Christ as King of the Universe, and this title establishes his reign over our hearts. Yet this king does not come to be served; rather he offers his life that all the inhabitants of his kingdom might have the hope of eternal life. Our response? Let us pledge our lives to our King!
