Jesus Didn’t Die So We Could Sin

Jesus Didn’t Die So We Could Sin

Praying the Rosary when I drive has become habit. After years of remote work, I commute to an office about 30 minutes from home. I’m not too fond of driving, and sadly, most Massachusetts drivers live up to their reputation as being rude, aggressive, and reckless. So, you can gather why my Rosary beads have become my constant car companion.

The Spirit Speaks

The Spirit Speaks

“But when he comes, the Spirit of truth, he will guide you to all truth. He will not speak on his own, but he will speak what he hears, and will declare to you the things that are coming” (John 16:13-14).

During a recent Confession, I realized my greatest desire was truly to do the will of God; at the same time, coming to grips with this is also my greatest difficulty.

Writing books to share God’s love and the beauty of Catholic faith devotions is only some of the fun I am blessed to have in my ministry work! In addition, I often have the opportunity to chat with amazing Catholic peeps about various matters of faith! Recently, I had the privilege of being a guest on two entertaining podcasts—I am confident you will enjoy listening as much as we enjoyed recording them!

“Truly this man was the Son of God!”
~ Mark 15:39b

Ah, Palm Sunday. My sons used to refer to it as “the Mass that requires us to stand forever and ever (amen).” It is the Mass that turns most healthy, able-bodied children (and even some adults) into spaghetti-legged blob-o-kids.

There was a time when even my body balked when I heard the priest announce, “This morning, we’ll be following the LONG form of the Gospel.”

RSVP to God’s Banquet

RSVP to God’s Banquet

“‘Come, everything is now ready.’ But one by one, they all began to excuse themselves” (Luke 14:18). Immediately, when called to communion with the King, the invitees start making excuses. They cling to their worldly attachments, putting their to-do lists and material desires before the relationship with the King. Sound familiar?

Were you at Mass last weekend? Did you put aside all worldly distractions to be present at the most lavish banquet the King has to offer? Recall Jesus’ words in today’s Gospel, “Blessed is the one who will dine in the Kingdom of God.”
