To What Does Your Heart BELONG?

Is your heart, the center of your life, your very soul, focused on God? or someone or something else?

Bishop Robert Barron, reviews the significance of the readings for Sunday Feb 13, 2022 which include Jerimiah 17:5-8 and Gospel of Luke 6: 17, 20-26 The Beatitudes.  

Everything He has is YOURS! The Prodigal son

Friends, our Gospel reading for this Fourth Sunday of Lent is one of the greatest stories ever told: the parable of the prodigal son. In a way, this parable about giving and receiving gifts tells us everything we need to know about our relationship to God.  Sunday, March 27, 2022 Bible/Scripture readings

Answering Questions why people leave Christianity

Young people enjoy asking about and discussing the big questions, from God’s existence, to how to be a good and moral person, to the problem of suffering. A disconnect takes place when we meet these intellectual questions with watered-down catechesis. Instead, we must remember the central teachings of Christianity. We must present the fullness of truth, the reality of the Incarnation, and the good news of grace.  

Are you one of these people who have left the church?  Are you someone considering Christianity?  Are you someone willing to learn about Christianity and Catholicism?  

Here are some of those answers!

Who is God? Bishop Robert Barron

Friends, on this Third Sunday of Lent, we have the privilege of reading one of the most important texts in the Bible: God addressing Moses from the burning bush. In this passage, the true God manifests his own identity: he is closer to you than you are to yourself, yet higher than anything you can possibly imagine. And he gives himself a name: “I Am Who I Am”—not a being among beings, but Being itself.  March 20, 2022

Awaiting Resurrection

Friends, all three of our readings for the Second Sunday of Lent emphasize the transcendent world, the goal of all our religious striving. St. Paul speaks of how the Lord Jesus “will change our lowly body to conform with his glorified body.” We get a glimpse of what this transformation, this metamorphosis, will be like in the Transfiguration of Jesus.

The Master has need of it!  Palm Sunday


In the Palm Sunday Gospel reading proclaimed before the procession, the Lord instructs two of his disciples to go into the village and untether a donkey. If there is any protest, they are to say, “The Master has need of it.” This is true of every baptized person: the Master has need of your gifts, of you, of the whole of your life. Once we understand this principle, everything is revolutionized—and we are liberated to be of service to Christ and his people.
