Mass Readings – 25th Sunday of the Year

If your life were to be considered as a single day, what time is it – morning, noon or night?  Are you ready to step into eternity or is there something holding you back?  God lavishes grace upon our world; our task is to be open to the generous gift of grace and receive it into our hearts.

Daily Mass: You are Salt and Light. Catholic Inspiration

Mass Readings – Tuesday of the 10th Week of the Year (St. Anthony of Padua)

The Lord describes us as Salt and Light, two things that while good in themselves are also precious when shared with others.  With salt our food is tasty and preserved; with light we can see and find our way on the journey of life.  May we share our lives with one another, giving glory to God for blessings we have received.

Fr. Andrew’s Christmas Homily

Mass Readings for Christmas

The Christmas story touches our hearts and gets past our defenses.  Why?  Because babies evoke a loving response!  God’s love story with humanity helps us see how the Lord – in taking on our human form – helps us to draw near through the gentleness of an infant.  May the Christ child take us by the hand and lead us this Christmas to embrace our faith and give glory to God through the gift of our lives.
