Daily Mass: The Lord comes to call sinners. Catholic Inspiration

When asked why he eats with sinners and tax collectors, Jesus offers a powerful response, “Those who are healthy do not need a physician, but the sick do.  I have not come to call the righteous to repentance, but sinners.”  As we acknowledge our sins and seek repentance we, too, receive the Lord’s saving mercy.

Daily Mass: The Commemoration of All the Faithful Departed (All Souls). Catholic Inspiration

Mass Readings – The Commemoration of All the Faithful Departed (All Souls) 

(Note: there are many choices for today; this link offers a few options.)

Today we pray for all who have died, sometimes still grieving their loss, and sometimes smiling as their memory warms our hearts.  What’s more, our prayers are part of the communion we share in Jesus Christ, and we offer them for those who have gone before us…that they might meet us one day in the Kingdom of Heaven.

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord.  And let the perpetual light shine upon them.

May they rest in peace. Amen.

May their souls and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen

28th Sunday of the Year: The Lord’s Supper. Catholic Inspiration

Mass Readings – 28th Sunday of the Year

The Eucharist is a banquet that nourishes, celebrates and unites our lives.  Christ himself feeds us with his Body and Blood so that we might grow in grace.  Two simple questions follow from this great gift:

  1. Are we coming?
  2. Are we coming prepared?

For always remember that one day we will stand before the One who is the source of all grace…and what then will we say?
