The Kingdom of God is filled with all light and no darkness. Let the light of Christ illuminate your mind, yourself, and your world. Through obedience we walk in the light and radiate the light. Let your light shine! [AUDIO]
Jesus invites us to be humble as he is humble. At the Mass, Jesus welcomes those who cannot repay Him and offers them an hour in heaven. All Jesus is asking is that we welcome others as He welcomes us. [AUDIO]
Will many be saved? Golf is simple but it isn’t easy. Similarly we are all called to a life of self-giving love. It is simple but it requires discipline and practice. We can do it with God’s help as long as we strive to enter in. (21 Aug 2016)
When the world starts to fall apart, we know that Jesus is closer than ever. God loves us and has plans for our ultimate happiness. The theme song of Hell is, “I Did It My Way.” Change your tune! The theme song of Heaven is “Amazing Grace.” (15 Nov 2015)
Christ is the vine and we are branches. Our prayers help the dead; their prayers help us. We call this the Communion of Saints. Do you wish Christ had taken your loved one by the hand and said, “Be healed?” Our faith tells us that He did. (2 Nov 2015)
The Book of Revelation gives us a glimpse into Heaven. Heaven is more than just a place, Heaven is a person, and His name is Jesus Christ. The Beatitudes show us how we reflect the face of Christ. (1 Nov 2014)
Jesus was born in a little shack, at the edge of town, and Mary and Joseph probably thought that nobody at all would notice them…until the shepherds showed up.

Because of this truth, we should not be afraid of anything, and we should let God help us with everything.
Please continue to pray for the victims of the typhoon in the Philippines….It is painful to look at images from this disaster, which show whole cities destroyed and bodies lying in the streets. It is hard for us to believe that this sort of destruction can really happen, and it is frightening to think that hundreds of years of making …
Like the Sadducees in today’s Gospel, we often assume that life in Heaven is a lot like life on earth, only with better food, and no one gets fat.

The Greek word for Church, ecclesia, means “the gathering” or “assembly.” God is gathering His children from the four corners of the earth, and from all of history. The Holy Spirit is tugging us to join this gathering, and we need to choose whether we are going to rise with the Saints, or stay stuck in the muck.
