My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, May the Peace of the Risen Christ be with you! May the Peace of the Risen Lord be with you! When a couple get married, they are actually starting a new family unit. When the couple is blessed with children, their family begins to grow and life changes. But you know that when a couple marry they do not divorce themselves from the families from which they came. They just add to their particular families. The interaction between family members just seems to come naturally. People who may have been perfect strangers learn to grow together. It is just one big family...

My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, May the Peace of the Risen Christ be with you! October is Respect Life month. It is a time to reflect on the value of the life that God has given each one of us. After all, life is a gift from God. When a couple express their total commitment to each in the loving act of intercourse and are open to being co-creators with God and a child is conceived, a new life begins. From that very moment of our conception, God gave us life. The life that we now enjoy is the result of a loving relationship between a man...

My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, May the Peace of the Risen Christ be with you! Twenty-five years ago this month, I celebrated the first Life Teen Mass here at Ss. Cyril and Methodius Church. After that Mass, Gilbert Juarez, the parish youth minister, conducted the first Life Night in the garage of the rectory. With the help of a handful of young adults who formed the first Core, we mailed out about 1,100 personal invitations to all the teens in the parish. (Some of you who are now in your 30’s or early 40’s probably received one of these invitations.) Since we expected most of them to...

My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, May the Peace of the Risen Christ be with you! As the school year begins, I would to turn my attention to you parents. One of the hardest jobs that one can have is parenting. It is a grave responsibility to teach your children what they need to know to be good, responsible people as well as to what they will need to know to survive in the world when they leave home.

My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, May the Peace of the Risen Christ be with you! I never realized how much power a pair of socks has! When Dillard’s had their 40% off the 65% off sale a few weeks ago, I bought a pair of socks, not just ordinary black socks that I usually buy, but a pair of striped socks with some blue, pink, yellow, light brown and a light shade of purple. They are very colorful. Well I wore them to Dallas last week for a funeral which took place in a Baptist church. Now you have to realize that I was wearing my black...

My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, May the Peace of the Risen Christ be with you! On July 1, 2018, the parish began a new fiscal year. In reviewing the parish’s financial books for the fiscal year just completed, I found both good news and bad news. The good news is that that the people of this parish who attend Mass on Sunday have continued to be good stewards in supporting your parish. While we are not a wealthy parish, we were to end the year in the black. For the first time in a long time we were able to pay off the past debt to the...

My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, May the Peace of the Risen Christ be with you! After the 11:00 a.m. Sunday Mass I went to the Athletic Club and had a hard work out. When I got back to the rectory, in an attempt to cool off, I opened the ice box (the frig) and discovered a bowl of cold seedless watermelon. I took it out and began to eat a piece after piece after piece. Boy was it good. It was so refreshing. As I was enjoying the last piece, I thought how great it is to be able to live in a country that gives me...
