12/10/2017 My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, May the Peace of the Lord be with you. Today is the second Sunday of Advent. Remember that the Advent season is a season of penance, a time for us to repent and turn more to preparing ourselves spiritually for the Birth of the child Jesus. It will be easy for us to get lost in the worldly preparations for Christmas as we run from store to store to get the bargains as we shop for the right present for that special person. We will be going to different Christmas parties, and will probably eat and drink more than we should....

12/03/2017 My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, May the Peace of the Lord be with you. When a couple gets the news that a baby is on the way, their hearts are filled with joy. For nine months, the mother must take special care of her body for whatever she eats or drink will have an effect on the baby. There is also a lot of time spent on making the physical preparations for the new arrival. As the birth date gets nearer, the excitement grows. It was the same for Mary and Joseph when Mary was pregnant with Jesus. But in the last days of her pregnancy,...

11/26/2017 My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, I hope that all of you had a great Thanksgiving. I would wager that most of you ate more than you wanted. It was just too much to say no to that extra helping of turkey and dressing or maybe that extra piece of pecan pie. You also probably ate left over in the evening. There is still time to go on a crash diet to get ready for all the Christmas parties! I hope that Thanksgiving was a wonderful time for you to visit with members of you family that you have not seen for some time. Thanksgiving is also...

10/29/2017 My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, May the Peace of the Lord be with you. From the reports that I am getting here at the hospital, it seems as if the carnival was a great success. I want to thank all of you who worked so hard to make the annual Halloween Carnival the success that it was. It was truly an example of what can happen when the entire parish community comes together to work for the good of the parish. The school’s PTO officers and the members of the Halloween Carnival committee did a great job in putting it all together and making sure that...

10/22/2017 My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, May the Peace of the Lord be with you. This coming Saturday we will have the annual Halloween Carnival in the school yard. Please help make this year’s Halloween Carnival a success. The school PTO officers and the carnival committee have worked hard for the past five months putting it all together and making sure that everything will run smoothly. It takes a lot of hard work to make the carnival a positive experience for our children as well as raising necessary funds to support our parish school and our parish religious education program. Since tuition only brings in about one...

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...

10/01/2017 My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, By the time you read this, I and the other pilgrims, will have celebrated an early Mass at the shrine in Lourdes, had breakfast, boarded the bus and are heading for Spain. I prayed for all of you, but especially all of you who asked for prayers and those of you are suffering from some illness. Several of you are fighting cancer, and you were certainly in my prayers. I will also pray for you at the tomb of St. Theresa of Avila as well at the tomb of St. James the Apostle. Life certainly throws us some difficult curves! I...
