The First Miracle of Jesus January 17th, 2010 Listen Now
Sunday of the Second Week of Ordinary Time Our Lady is called Virgin most powerful because her Son is God and cannot refuse her anything, as we see in the story of the marriage feast at Cana. Thus, we ought to turn more frequently to Our Lady. Posted in Mary, Ordinary Time, Prayer | Tags: | No Comments

We have been given do much from our Lord — the sacraments, the Church, the infallible Word of God, and especially the Holy Spirit.

Listening to God and Speaking to Him September 6th, 2009 Listen Now
Our Lord cured the sick and healed the broken hearted. In today’s Mass readings Jesus healed a deaf mute by placing his finger in his ears and saliva on his tongue. The healing power, however, did not come from these Sacramental actions, but from the words of Our Lord. This is the nature of the Sacraments — a physical manifestation of an invisible reality. Let us receive the Sacraments and be open to hearing the Word of God and speaking the Gospel to others. Posted in Healing, Ordinary Time, Sacramental Life | Tags: | No Comments
To Love with Deeds November 1st, 2009 Listen Now
The First Commandment is to Love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul, and strength. The man who loves God must board the ship of God determined to accept the course set by the Master. We abandon ourselves to God. All that matters is to be with Jesus. Posted in Ordinary Time, Uncategorized | Tags: | No Comments
Prayers to the Mother of Jesus October 10th, 2009 Listen Now
Our Blessed Mother never looks to herself, she always points to her Son. In the book of Luke we read that Mary is to be blessed by all generations. Catholic venerate her, that is, honor her because the Bible says we should. If we are with Mary we are certain to be on the sure path to her Son.

Patience in Adversity November 25th, 2009 Listen Now
Patience is part of the virtue of fortitude. Our Lord exhorts us to have patience and to persevere no matter what should happen in our lives. Patience gives us the opportunity for us to grow in humility. Posted in Humility, Mortification, Ordinary Time, Virtue | Tags: | No Comments
The Fruits of the Cross November 4th, 2009 Listen Now
Suffering is a glorious opportunity for grace. If we join our suffering with Christ, suffering becomes redemptive not only for us, but for the whole world. We become active participants in the Lord’s work of salvation and by sanctifying our suffering win for ourselves the glory of Heaven.

Preparing the Soul October 2nd, 2009 Listen Now
Jesus tried hard to convert the cities along the shores of Lake Gennesareth but they were hard hearted and refused to convert. Without this conversion it was unlikely these people would recognize Christ in their midst. We too, can be hard hearted and not recognize the grace of God in our lives. We need to mortify ourselves which prepares our soul to listen to the Lord. This is why Fridays are a day of penance in the Church.
