Ordinary 17 – So much to do and so little time. How do we keep from getting dizzy? King Solomon asks God for a change of heart. I needed the same change of heart in order to survive a crazy assignment that was much too big for me. Now it’s your turn.

Ordinary 15 – Let the seeds of print, mass-media, and bad example grow in your heart and you will turn out like Alessandro Serenelli. If the good seed of God’s word grows in your heart, you will become like Maria Goretti. What is growing in you heart?

Ordinary 14 – America became and independent nation because the colonies were interdependent on one another. In a similar way, we can only find true independence when we depend on God and support one another.

Corpus Christi – For 12 weeks we could only be together virtually. Now we can be together in flesh and blood. God desires to be with you in the flesh, so he created the Eucharist. Don’t just take Communion; enter into Communion with the God who loves you.

Trinity – How should we respond to the protests, racism, and injustice that are tearing America apart? The Packers show us the way to listen and stand together. The Trinity is willing to welcome us, should we not welcome others?

Pentecost – The Holy Spirit calls us back to our true identity as children of God the Father, members of the Body of Christ, and temples of the Holy Spirit. Don’t just receive Communion; cherish Him and hold tight to the Holy Spirit and the Sacred Heart.
