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. The different stages of growth that a child goes through present a different set of problems at each stage. Parents need to love each other so that their love......

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......

Dear Brothers and Sisters, good morning! In these last Sundays, the liturgy has shown us Jesus’ image full of tenderness, who goes to meet the crowds and their needs. In today’s evangelical account (Cf. John 6:24-35) the perspective changes: it’s the crowd, fed by Jesus, which again begins to look for Him. However, for Jesus it’s not enough that the people seek Him; He wants the people to know Him. He wants the search for Him and the meeting with Him to go beyond the immediate satisfaction of material needs. Jesus came to bring us something more: to open our existence to a wider horizon than the daily preoccupations......

Daily Mass is a wonderful way to start your day listening to the Lord at Mass and partaking of His own Body and Blood during communion.

My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, May the Peace of the Risen Christ be with you! This past Sunday, at the end of Gospel, Jesus said “I am the bread of life: whoever comes to me will never hunger, and whoever believes in me will never thirst.” Jesus is telling us that He is the bread of life and that we need eat of the bread of His word, we need to have an intimate relationship with Him. To do this we have to know His Word. The Word of God challenged us to look at God’s generosity and to respond in kind. His love for us is......
