Sixth Sunday of Ordinary Time 2019 The imagery of Jeremiah in the first reading can help us understand more fully the sense of the Beatitudes recorded in St. Luke. Surely, none of us wants to be a barren bush, a bit of tumbleweed in the desert, tossed about by the wind. We would rather imagine…

Sexta Semana del Tiempo Ordinario La visión que tenemos de Jeremías en la primera lectura puede ayudarnos a comprender mejor el sentido de las Bienaventuranzas citadas en San Lucas. Ciertamente ninguno de nosotros quiere ser un arbusto estéril, o una de esas plantas rodadoras del desierto, soplada por el viento de un lado a otro….

Fifth Sunday of Ordinary Time 2019 There are times when we consider the glory of God and feel so insignificant and unworthy before his majesty.

Third Sunday of Ordinary Time 2019 It almost seems impossible that an entire people could forget the essential content of their faith. Yet, it happens. It happened in Nehemiah and Ezra’s time because of the Babylonian captivity. In our time, it can also happen for many different reasons. That is why today’s readings want to…

Tercer Domingo de Tiempo Ordinario 2019 Parecería casi imposible que un pueblo pudiera olvidarse del contenido esencial de su fe. Sin embargo, a veces esto si ocurre.

Second Sunday of Ordinary Time 2019 For St. John, the experience of the Lord is like a great marriage feast filled with so much joy that everything changes.
