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.
Ordinary 13 – Hospitality turns strangers into friends. I was blessed by your welcome and I hope you were blessed by my presence. As the Diocese moves priests, welcome the new priest as Christ. Today in the Eucharist, Christ welcomes you.
Ordinary 12 — God is not a deadbeat Dad! On our walking pilgrimage we experienced his care in water, weather, and custard. God loves you, hears you, and cares for you. Pray for men to reflect the fatherhood of God.
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.
Easter, Ascension – My greatest achievements weren’t my achievements, they were OUR achievements. Jesus is the Head of the Body. That means He is closer to you than when He walked on earth. Ask for a deeper connection with Jesus your head.
Easter 6 – Today I have to tell my parishioners that my journey with them will end in August, when I will begin a new journey with the three parishes in Antigo as their pastor. I am grateful for the blessings of this assignment. I bow to the Jesus in you.
Easter 5 – You are chosen and precious and have a place prepared for you in Heaven. Holy Mother Church will birth you into eternal life and Jesus will be there to catch you. Jesus has a place prepared for you; do you have a place prepared for Jesus?
National Day of Prayer – What do we have to repent of? We are guilty of valuing things more than people. Do we use the first day of the week to honor God or do we spend it on ourselves? God will bless America when America blesses God.
