His Ways Are Not Our Ways

by Father Anthony F. Raso

NO MATTER HOW many times we encounters today’s Gospel about the owner of the field, who pays everyone the same wages at the end of the day no matter how many hours they’ve put in, the owner seems – to our sinful selves – to be completely unfair.

Forgive From Your Heart

HAVE YOU EVER been hurt by someone, hurt to the very core of your heart? I imagine so. This happens to most of us and it leaves a wound that may heal, but certainly leaves a scar.

Keeping Watch for The Lord’s People

TO BE CALLED, as was the prophet Ezekiel, to be the “watchman” for the House of God, is a great honor and a solemn responsibility.

It’s Never Too Late To Change Course

by Father Anthony F. Raso

BABY BOOMERS LIKE myself are now considered, accurately enough, to be “the older generation.” There is nothing about us nowadays that suggests “babies” – and even less, especially in my case as I toddle around with my cane – that can be associated with the word “boom.”

We Know Who He Is

by Father James Rodriguez

THE MOUNTAIN THEME throughout the Sundays of this month has served us well, reminding us that our altars are the truest places of encounter with the God Who is so far beyond our human understanding. In His goodness and fatherly love, He visits His people, and by the same mystery nourishes us as we wander through life.

No Limit to the Reach of the Gospel

Two weeks ago, we climbed the mountain with Jesus and His Apostles, basking in the sweet light of His transfigured face, surrounded by Moses and Elijah. Last week, we returned to the mountain amidst thunder and wind. At Elijah’s side, shuddering with holy fear before the God Who lovingly stoops down to His children, we heard the Voice in the stillness.

Abandon All Fear, Trust in Him

LAST WEEK, WE spent time atop the mountain with Jesus and His closest disciples, Peter, James, and John. Moses and Elijah appeared beside the Lord, rendering Him the full testimony of the law and the prophets. Like living signposts, they directed our attention to Him as the fulfillment of the entire Old Testament. With the Apostles, we watched and shared in Peter’s excitement: “It is good that we are here! “(Matthew 17:4).
