Today’s Prayer: March 30, 2020

Today it struck me in hearing the readings that perhaps the woman caught in the act of adultery may not have actually been caught in the act of adultery.

Friarly Homily: Life in the Trinity: March 29, 2020

Fr. Simon Felix Michalski, O.P., calls us to ponder what it means to live a life in the Spirit.

Simon Felix reminds us of this, and then reminds us that we are all called to follow in His footsteps; to be willing to lay down our lives for love of others.
