It has been over two months since we last posted. Some of you might be wondering why. The easy and simple answer is that there was simply a lot going on. Life got surprisingly busy. And that made it harder for me to keep up with the posts, recording homilies and more.
On another walk on Friday, different direction. This video shows flowering trees and tulips, water and other things. While we enter into this Holy Week, we can be consoled in faith that Easter joy is not that far away. Spring here is bursting forth, even in the midst of a pandemic. Enjoy!
WASHINGTON – Archbishop José H. Gomez of Los Angeles and president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops has invited the faithful to join him in a moment of prayer on Good Friday (April 10) to pray the Litany of the Sacred Heart.. . .
