FROM OUR EDITORS—August 19, 2018 – 20th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Author: Joan McKamey ~ August 14, 2018

After Mass one recent Sunday, a Baptist who sometimes sings with our parish choir said, “There are no denominations in Heaven.” I expect he’s correct. The Catholic friend who had invited him to sing with our choir pointed to the tabernacle and said, “Yes, but we have Jesus.” We have Jesus—his body, blood, soul, and divinity—in the [...]


SUNDAY’S GOSPEL – June 18, 2017

Author: Alice Camille ~ June 12, 2017
Sunday gospel I am the living bread that came down from heaven

“I am the living bread that came down from heaven.” John 6:51–58 Jesus is our food. Whatever emptiness may be felt in our lives, he alone can fill it. If a vacuum exists anywhere in need of justice, peace, charity, compassion, understanding, forgiveness, or simple respect, Jesus is the missing element. The living bread from […]

Author: Nicholle Check ~ June 5, 2017

On nearly every Sunday in June, the Church celebrates a special feast day. This Sunday, June 11, is Most Holy Trinity Sunday, which celebrates that there are Three Persons—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—in one God.

SUNDAY’S GOSPEL – June 11, 2017

Author: Alice Camille ~ June 5, 2017

God sent his Son that the world might be saved through him. John 3:16–18 I’m not sure how old I was, or how long I gazed up at crucifixes before the thought occurred to me. If God is so invested in roasting sinners in just retribution, as I often heard from religious people when I […]

SUNDAY’S GOSPEL – June 4, 2017 Pentecost Sunday

Author: Alice Camille ~ May 31, 2017

Appearance to the Disciples: John 20:19–23 Jesus chooses to reveal his Resurrection to the disciples as a group. We know from next week’s story that Thomas wasn’t there, and Jesus doesn’t show himself to Thomas until he returns to the group. This is significant. When it comes to revelation, the group is where it’s at. […]

Ascension: Matthew 28:16–20; Seventh Sunday of Easter, The Prayer of Jesus: John 17:1–11a “Listening is never easy. Many times it is easier to play deaf.
