10/15/2017 My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, May the Peace of the Lord be with you. I have spoken many times about the importance of prayer in our lives, especially the importance of spending some quiet time with the Lord. While praying the Office of Reading from the Breviary on Monday, October 09, 2017, I discovered a beautiful treatise which I would like to share with you. From a treatise on Cain and Abel by Saint Ambrose, bishop (Lib. 1, 9, 34, 38-39: CSEL 32, 369, 371-372)   Pray especially for the whole body of the Church   “Offer God a sacrifice of praise and fulfill your vows...

10/08/2017 My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, May the Peace of the Lord be with you. I made it home late yesterday with all 43 pilgrims. The trip was richly rewarding. We certainly did a lot in 12 days. We began in Paris with praying at the Shrine of the Sacred Heart which is located high on the hill of Montamartre. It is estimated that 13,000,000 people a year visit this shrine. From there we traveled to the cathedral of Notre Dame. It was like traveling back in time. Leaving the cathedral we made our way to the Shrine of the Miraculous Medal where we celebrated Mass. On...

08/17/2017 My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, I remember it as if it was yesterday. It all began when I went to an evangelization conference in Phoenix, Arizona, when at the last minute I decided to change the workshop that I had signed up for and went instead to the one about Life Teen. I had never heard of Life Teen before, but something was telling me to go to this particular workshop. When the presentation had ended, I knew that this was a program that I wanted to bring to SSCM.

08/17/2017 My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, Wow! What a storm Harvey was! As you know, most of the coast from Corpus Christ to Louisiana was affected by the storm. Some areas suffered more damage than others. In fact, as I write this, a large portion of the Houston metroplex was submerged by the 52 plus inches of rain that Harvey dumped on this area. Thousands of people lost their homes and businesses. It will take years to rebuild. We here is Corpus Christi need to bend our knees and thank the Lord. What we suffered was minor to what the people from Aransas Pass, Rockport, Fulton and...
