My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, May the Peace of the Risen Christ be with you! Today is Palm Sunday and the beginning of Holy Week. As we enter into these sacred days let us be resolved that through the liturgy of the Church on Holy Thursday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday and Easter Sunday, we can accompany Jesus through His suffering, death and resurrection. The pain that I have been experiencing in low back and in my legs has caused me to recall something that I wrote a few years ago entitled “Suffering with Christ.” In fact, one Sunday before my last surgery, Mrs. Berta Chavez, who herself......

My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, I have been taking it easy since my surgery. While I have been doing a little more each day in my office and staying pretty close to the parish grounds (After all, I can’t drive and have a hard time asking people to take me somewhere except to the doctors and to have blood work.), I thank the Lord for giving me this time to be alone with Him. Last week I told you that Lent is about coming back to the Lord. Well this is not a one-time event. It is daily.  Those of you who are married know that a......

2/11/2018 My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, HELPING HANDS OF THE 7TH FLOOR When I was wheeled onto the 7th floor of Dell Seton Medical Center at the University of Texas, I was a bit loopy from spending six and a half hours on the operating table. Being loopy demands a lot of attention from those who are taking care of you. I don’t remember, but I am sure that I was a hand full. Instead of finding crumply nurses. I found smiley ones. As they were asking me questions, I remember my friend, Dr. John Lopez, DC, who was with me, saying, “Monsignor! You have to be......

2/11/2018 My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, There seems to be something magical about Ash Wednesday. I think that one could say that more people go to church on Ash Wednesday than on any other day of the year. Being marked with the ashes made from palm is not a sure ticket to heaven, but it is a powerful symbol that should remind us that we are indeed sinners and have a need to repent, to change our ways so as to put Christ in the center of our lives. Ash Wednesday is also the first day of Lent, which is a season of penance. Lenten practices in......

Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent, falls on February 14th which is also Valentine’s Day and the feast day of this parish. It is also a day of fast and abstinence which means that the main meal does not equal the two smaller meals and not eating between meals and no meat! This year can truly make Fat Tuesday just that – a day to eat your chocolate and steaks up until midnight.  Don’t give in to the temptation to enjoy the Valentine chocolates that will be all around you. This Ash Wednesday will truly give us the opportunity to live our Catholic faith and to let those......

As we begin the new year of 2018, Monsignor Larry would like to thank all those who have adopted being good stewards as a way of life and have made tithing (giving back to God His 10% from what He has given to us) a meaningful part of your lives. It is important for us to be good stewards and give back to God from what He has given to us. Tithing is a good way to build our trust in God since it means taking God at His word. The start of a New Year gives us an excellent opportunity to begin to live this life of trust......
