  • Today’s Prayer: May 10, 2020

    May 10, 2020 by

    One of the great images of the Second Vatican Council was viewing a family as a domestic Church. This is a natural outcome when the Church is seen as the Bride of Christ, for it is this relationship that marriage is called to emulate.

  • GBTW: What is a Deacon? May 10, 2020

    May 10, 2020 by

    In the first reading from Mass today we encounter the beginning of the ministry of deacons. But just what is a deacon? The Friar takes a look at this vocation, explains its meaning and discusses what deacons are called by God to do.

    Jealousy and envy can be difficult things for us to admit to in our lives. We do not usually tell others we are jealous of them, or that we envy this or that thing. Someone else gets recognition for something, when I think it should be me, and I feel jealous. Someone has something I want, and I can envy them.

  • Today’s Prayer: May 8, 2020

    May 8, 2020 by

    Just think of it. From all eternity, Jesus has a place in heaven prepared for us. He has shown us the way to this place, because he himself is the way. He has given us a preview of his relationship with him here on earth, as a foretaste of the eternal relationship he calls us to share with him in heaven for ever.

  • Today’s Prayer: May 7, 2020

    May 7, 2020 by

    Sometimes when we think of Jesus, we consider him to be only a little better than we are. We can reduce him to being simply a very nice guy, perhaps even someone we admire.

    But again and again we are reminded that Jesus is so much more. Jesus is the second person of the Blessed Trinity. He is the divine Son of God. He is, as we are reminded by Saint John the Baptist, so great, that even John the Baptist, his cousin, feels unworthy to unfasten his sandals.

  • What Happened?

    May 6, 2020 by

    I know that I have gotten behind the production of podcasts, but life happened. Now that we are approaching the end of the school year, I hope to get a little more regular with updates. Thanks for understanding, and let’s pray for each other.

  • Reflections from Msgr. Lavalley: The Sheepgate

    May 2, 2020 by

    Msgr. Lavalley reminds us that the sheep listen to the voice of the shepherd. And part of the listening involves keeping the sabbath holy. We need to plan what will we do in the absence of our presence at Mass. Msgr. Lavalley offers suggestions how to keep the holy the Lord’s Day.

  • Reflections from Msgr. Lavalley: The Bread of Life.

    April 29, 2020 by

    The Eucharist is not a thing, it is a person. Jesus is the Bread of Life. Jesus speaks to people who knew him personally. Despite this, they saw him and they still did not believe. How do we strengthen our faith in Jesus, present fully in the Eucharist? By doing what Jesus did: the will of the Father.
