We are all responsible for creating a holy family. Today St. Joseph teaches us three keys to fatherhood: obedience, self-sacrifice, and giving your children back to God. If you follow Joesph’s example, your family will be holy too. [AUDIO]
Today we are reminded that God is a good father. When we get too focused on immediate needs, we lose sight of God’s presence in our lives. Keep your eyes on your Father and the other stuff will fall into place. [AUDIO]
“Son, I love you, and I’m proud of you.” We need to hear these words. We need to say these words. Jesus is the Light of the World. He wakes us up to our true potential by placing His light within us. Are you shining? [AUDIO]
My brother Omar killed my brothers and sisters in the Pulse nightclub. More than laws, we need a change of heart. Jesus offers us a blood transfusion. With the blood of Jesus in your veins you too can respond to evil with the Works of Mercy. [AUDIO]
5 Days, 13 walkers, 58 miles — another successful walking pilgrimage! We found that forming community was hard work. Only the Holy Trinity forms community easily because God is not afraid to give. The family images the Trinity, and so does the parish. These lead us to realize that we are welcomed into the Heavenly family of God himself. Do not be afraid to give; the Father gives so much more in return.

Holy Family – George Bailey puts others first, and makes Bedford Falls a better place in the process. St. Joseph serves God and makes the world a better place. He is humble enough to trust in God’s strength. Do you serve others, or serve yourself?
