Happy Sunday!

This Sunday the Gospel tinges Jesus telling followers to follow him even leaving behind the burial of a father and saying farewell to family. He is the center in order to align us for Eternal Life. It is a challenge and greatly aided by believers who will help to lower obstacles. Also we give thanks for the new decision of the Supreme Court to abolish abortion. Let us pray for healing in this country.

Peace!

Happy Sunday!

There are certain actions of Catholics that others recognize, receipt of the true presence of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist, forgiving our enemies, confessing sins to a catholic priest, receive anointing if seriously ill, belief in the communion of saints and belief in life eternal and keeping Sunday as sacred.

May God bless all of the spiritual fathers who have laid down their own lives for Christ and fathers who love.

Peace!

Happy Sunday! The Holy Spirit renews our lives as we hear in today’s reading. Christ’s followers went from being fearful in the upper room to broadly proclaiming him at any cost. So many saints also lived a deep faith of proclamation of Christ. In June roses are in bloom and it is hard not to think of St. Therese who said she would spend her Heaven sending roses to Earth. St. Therese, hear our prayer and intentions of thanksgiving. Peace!
Happy Sunday! Pentecost Sunday will soon be here. Is it evident to others you belong to Christ? Live for Him? Follow his plan for your life? This week St. Bernadette’s relics, on tour in the US for the first time, arrived in NH. One greeter mentioned about his helping to ‘unpack her’ from the crate. He was referring to the sizable reliquary. The small country church was packed. They brought ‘Lourdes to the pilgrims’ thru a slide show and procession to generate the relics and processed again to experience fresh Lourdes water. All ages, priests, babies, school children, religious, and all ages in between participated. Life was far from easy for St. Bernadette. When they exhumed her body they found she was incorruptable. Would those who met her and her poor family with her father who struggled to find employment as a Miller have seen her sanctity? They reported there have been 70 miracles confirmed by the Vatican with St. Bernadette and Lourdes water. There is another medical committee at Lourdes who reviews reports to substantiate unexplainable ‘cures.’ The beauty of this simple country church and town made possible veneration of the relics. May God continue to increase our faith, grant miracles and foster cures. St. Bernadette, pray for us! Come Holy Spirit!
Happy Sunday! In this time of graduations, ordinations, weddings and anniversaries we have been given a number of new saints in the Catholic Church. Consider the trials they endured in their lifetimes before being raised to the altars. You never know who may be holding on to your conversion story as they encounter Christ’s mercy. We are called to become saints, as broad as it may propose to you. Let us look at these holy men and women as we pray too to become a saint. Increase our faith! Peace!
