With the celebration this weekend of Independence Day, we remember that God’s mercy can be witnessed in both the freedom he offers us and the way he loves us.   Freedom is a big deal in the Gospel. However, freedom in the New Testament means something very different from the way we commonly understand that […]

The Internet came on the scene back in 1995 or so. By 2000, it was becoming a household word, and business people adopted the mantra “The Internet changes everything.”   In the Church, we are halfway through our celebration of the Jubilee Year of Mercy.   When the Holy Father proclaimed the jubilee year, he […]

A father’s first duty is to protect his children. That goes for not only earthly dads, but for our Heavenly father as well. His embrace encompasses even those furthest from him.   This is why the words we hear most often in Scripture are “Do not be afraid.”   Many wonder why a loving God […]

The prophet Elijah sought God in windstorm and earthquake and fire. But he heard God only as a “still, small voice” (1 Kings 19:12). In Psalm 46, we are advised to “Be still, and know that I am God.”   But after more than a week of prayer in the upper room, the apostles were […]

If Jesus forgave and prayed for those who were nailing his hands and feet to the cross, how much more does he love us who turned to him in repentance during Lent? This is a most welcome thought as we journey through this Jubilee Year of Mercy.   As Eastertide draws to an end, we […]

May is traditionally the month dedicated to the Mother of God. She holds special significance for us during this Jubilee Year of Mercy because, through her willingness to bear the Christ child, God became “visible’’ in a particular way as the Father who is rich in mercy.   Pope Saint John Paul II, in his […]
