My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, May the Peace of the Risen Christ be with you! Today, in the Church’s liturgical calendar, we celebrate the Feast of the Most Holy Trinity. This feast gives us reason to concentrate on the unity that exists between God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. I think that as we look at the Holy Trinity, we need to do everything in our power to unite ourselves one to another. Our baptism truly makes us a part of the Body of Christ and unites us together as His family, His Church. Each one of us is an individual yet......

My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, May the Peace of the Risen Christ be with you! My retirement is a bittersweet moment in my life. The day that I got ordained was one that was filled with great joy and excitement. It took a while to sink in that I was actually a priest. It was a long journey. Fifty-nine years ago when I was a junior in high school I left Aransas Pass and all my friends and moved into the Corpus Christi Minor Seminary (now St. John Paul II High School). I was the only one in my class that had never attended a Catholic school......

My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, May the Peace of the Risen Christ be with you! I want to share with you a message from Pope Francis for the 2019 World Day of Vocations. The courage to take a risk for God’s promise Dear Brothers and Sisters, After the lively and fruitful experience of the Synod devoted to young people last October, we recently celebrated the Thirty-fourth World Youth Day in Panama City. These two great events allowed the Church to be attentive both to the voice of the Spirit and to the life of young men and women, their questions and concerns, their problems and their hopes.......

My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, May the Peace of the Risen Christ be with you! As the 49​th anniversary of my priestly ordination approaches on May 9​th​, I find myself reflecting on my priesthood while wondering why the Good Lord instilled in my heart the desire to serve Him as a Roman Catholic priest. In the scriptures we read that it is from our mother’s womb that He calls us. It is up to us to discover what it is that we called to do with our life. Since He gave us a free will, we know that He will not force His will on us. It......

My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, May the Peace of the Risen Christ be with you! Today is the Feast of the Divine Mercy of Jesus. Like some of you, I do not know a lot about this feast so I looked up the official web site for Divine Mercy. This is what I found: “The message of The Divine Mercy is simple. It is that God loves us – all of us. And, he wants us to recognize that His mercy is greater than our sins, so that we will call upon Him with trust, receive His mercy, and let it flow through us to others. Thus,......
