The call of Levi offers us an example of how Christ invites us (wounded, broken and sinful) to follow Him. As Levi accepted this call and invited others to meet Jesus, may we take heart as the Lord calls us today.

Apr 17, 2019

The Passover meal is prepared, the disciples are gathered around Jesus, and with sorrow the Lord announces that a betrayer is in their midst.  The point?  There is no spin or sugar coating salvation history as we embark on the Sacred Triduum.  For in the midst of human darkness and sin, the Son of God will shine the light of grace upon our world.

Fr. Andrew Ricci - www.studyprayserve.com

Apr 14, 2019

The Passion of Christ is the greatest love story ever told.  As we reflect on the depth of the Lord's sacrifice for our sins, may we encounter the compassion, mercy and forgiveness of Jesus, who gave his life that we might be with him in Heaven.

April 13, 2019 - Cathedral of Christ the King - Superior, WI

Fr. Andrew Ricci - www.studyprayserve.com

Apr 13, 2019

The prophetic words of Caiaphas reveal an insight into God's plan for our salvation, "it is better for you that one man should die instead of the people."  Jesus Christ takes our place by his death on the Cross so that our sins might be washed clean by his blood.  May this fact bring us to our knees in grateful thanks for what God has done for us.

April 13, 2019 - Cathedral Rectory - Superior, WI

Fr. Andrew Ricci - www.studyprayserve.com

Jesus reveals his majesty as the Son of God through his relationship with the Father and the works that he performs.  The moment we acknowledge this fact our lives profoundly change as we conform our thoughts, words and actions to the will of our Lord.

April 12, 2019 - Cathedral of Christ the King - Superior, WI

Fr. Andrew Ricci - www.studyprayserve.com

Apr 11, 2019

Jesus teaches in the Gospel of John that "whoever keeps my word will never see death."  As the Son of God, his sacrifice on the Cross becomes the means by which we gain eternal life.  May the promise of Heaven inspire our words and actions here on earth.
