  • Many parts, but one body
    Pentecost is the 50th day and final day of the Easter season. Pentecost celebrates the coming forth of the Holy Spirit upon the Apostles and disciples following Jesus’ ascension to the right hand of the Father in heaven.
  • What should we pray for?
    Over the years, as a priest, I have had my share of people who came to me with one problem or another, seeking advice and guidance. The first question I usually ask people is, “Have you prayed?” Many times, the response has been, “I didn’t want to bother God with my problems.”
  • Are we failing to love?
    Next week, we celebrate Mother’s Day; in about six weeks, we will celebrate Father’s Day. There is a reason we celebrate these holidays in honor of our parents: It is from our parents that we learn the meaning of true love.
  • True vine and branches
    Last week, our Lord gave us that familiar and clear image of the Good Shepherd to help us in our reflections and prayers. This weekend, we have another great image: a vine and its branches. Jesus is the true vine and, if we are to bear fruit, we have to remain attached to Him. As St. Augustine once wrote: “Without you, Lord, nothing; with you, everything.”
  • Children of the Good Shepherd

    This Sunday is the fourth Sunday in Eastertime. It is also known as “Good Shepherd Sunday.” Our Gospel is always about that favorite image of Jesus as the Good Shepherd.
