The Second Father’s Day

From Mother’s Day and Father’s Day to Administrative Professionals’ Day and Grandparent’s Day, there are many days throughout the year designated to recognize and honor special people in our lives. Did you know that in some Catholic Churches throughout the country they celebrate Father’s Day twice a year? In addition to the well-known Father’s Day […]

Live the Liturgy

God insists that we treat each other with fairness and love. No compromise is offered here. The great commandment is specific: love God, neighbor, and self. Who is my neighbor? It is not just the person sitting next to me today or the people who live next door. Our neighbor is everyone, especially those most […]

Who is my neighbor?

Repay to Ceasar

“Repay to Caesar what belongs to Caesar and to God what belongs to God.” – Mt 22:21 One of the first things we might think of with this famous verse in today’s Gospel is the separation of church and state. We have heard it referenced by politicians and pundits, but it’s usually to argue for […]

What belongs to God if the coin belongs to Ceasar?

If the coin belongs to Caesar, then give it to him. Paying taxes is often unpleasant, but requires little self-investment. We know that a portion of our income must go back to the government, but what then, exactly, belongs to God? God does not seek our financial resources. What belongs to God is something that […]

He is Really Present

Last Sunday, those of us at Community Sunday had quite an experience. At the end of our excellent lunch, we began to watch a documentary about a recent miracle involving the Eucharist in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The first half of the 14-minute video explained the incredible details which I have summarized below. The second half […]

Body, blood, soul and divinity of Jesus Christ

I hope that those of you who participated in the Revival enjoyed it thoroughly. My favorite part was when the spectacular revivalist talked about the Eucharist on Tuesday night. He actually used the phrase “center of our life”. I was hooting and hollering! One of the priests who knows about my C.O.O.L. pamphlet on the […]
