Feast of All Norbertine Saints

“Jesus said to him, ‘If you wish to be perfect, go, sell what you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow Me.’”

Have your faith and hope been increasing this week? They should be. The two most important public events of the past week have been the Solemnity of All Saints and the Commemoration of All Souls…

Holy Week with St. Benedict

Holy Week with St. Benedict

“Today is the feast of St. Benedict in the 1962 Calendar. And St. Benedict’s life is a model of how we should approach Holy Week.”

St. John the Evangelist

St. John the Evangelist

Thinking on needing to preach on St. John the Evangelist, a story I had read in one of Fr. Groeschel’s books on spirituality came to mind, which I now share with you…

Faith in the Holy Eucharist

Faith in the Holy Eucharist

“Lord, it is good for us to be here.” Although we all certainly understand and sympathize with the desire of St. Peter to build three tents and so have the Savior and His prophets remain here forever, yet we know that the time had arrived not to enjoy Christ’s glory but to undergo His sacred Passion. Nor was it the time to see His divinity until the Apostles had first learned to suffer with His humanity.

Pleasing to Behold

Pleasing to Behold

Queen Esther was a uniquely pleasing person to behold. We hear this repeatedly throughout her story and, ultimately, are told that she “found grace and favor in the eyes of all who saw her.”

Creating Something Divine

Creating Something Divine

The first Sunday of Lent offers one of the shortest texts for a Gospel in the whole liturgical year. It is only sixty-four words. St. Mark’s account of the Temptation in the Desert takes just two verses and is about as succinct as one can be. Now, I am not the evangelist Mark. So don’t expect a short sermon. Settle in. And listen in.

On the First Commandment

On the First Commandment

For what could be more natural than to love the source of our being with our whole being; what could be more desirable than to love without limits the Good which is unlimited.

Everyone Loves a Gift

Everyone Loves a Gift

Jesus tells us that we who are the sheep of His flock have been given to Him by His Father: “The Father who has given them to Me is greater than all”; that is, we are the gift which the Father has given to His Son. Jesus states this even more clearly as He prayed at the Last Supper: “Father, they are Your gift to me,” He said.
