My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, May the Peace of the Risen Christ be with you! Pain and suffering, whether it be physical, mental or spiritual, is something that most of us try to avoid. After all, who likes to suffer. But suffering can also have a positive side. Suffering for and with Christ can lead us to our eternal home. On Tuesday of last week I visited the tomb of Saint Joselito, the young boy gave his life in the Cristero War in Mexico. The physical torture that he endured could have been avoided if he would have denied and stopped saying “Vive Cristo Rey.” He suffered......

My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, I am always inspired by the words of Pope Francis. Since we are still in the beginning of Lent, I want to share with you the homily given by his holiness on Ash Wednesday, March 1, 2017, at the Basilica of Santa Sabina. It is so easy for us to forget the significance of the ashes that were placed on our foreheads in the sign of the cross. Put these words of Pope Francis somewhere that you will be able to read frequently during this Lent and meditate on them often.   “Return to me with all your heart… return to the Lord”......

My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, If the number of people who were present for the Masses on Ash Wednesday was any indication, I would say that a lot of people have come to the realization that they are sinners and are in need of repentance; and that their presence on Ash Wednesday was a conscious act by which they were committing themselves to use the season of Lent as a time of growing their personal relationship with the Lord Jesus. I can dream, can’t I? For in reality, the ashes placed on your foreheads on Ash Wednesday were only a reminder that we are to repent and......

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 lives. Ash Wednesday is also the first day of Lent, which is a season of penance. Lenten practices in the Diocese......

My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, While it is true that we belong to the parish community of SS. Cyril and Methodius and that we share in the responsibility of providing the financial means to maintain the parish plant and to provide the necessary ministries that help us grow in our relationship to the Lord, it is also true that we form a partnership with the people in other parishes in the Diocese of Corpus Christi to look after the needs of the Catholic people within the Diocese, as well as the non-Catholic and unchurched who live in our Diocese. There are certain specialized ministries for which the......
