Easter, April 12, 2020: “I Have Seen The Lord!”

The Lord is Risen! But you wouldn’t have known it from the first discoveries by the Disciples. To them it was all horror, doubt, and darkness. But that’s the point! Easter came in the darkness. And, it was in the darkness that Jesus found his way to them. John’s Gospel account of the Resurrection is really Mary Magdalen’s resurrection story. For what happens to her, is what happens to us when we turn in our darkness and are found by…

Good Friday, April 10, 2020: “Behold The Man!”

As we follow Jesus to the Cross, as we focus on his sufferings, his passion, it can be a temptation to focus on our own sufferings as well. But this is a distraction. All other days of the year God gives to us to consider our own sufferings. But, on this day, we are called to lay aside self-consideration. We are called to follow Jesus, and to look upon and sorrow for him alone. When Pilate said, “Behold the Man!”,…

Maundy Thursday, April 9, 2020: “The Invitation”

Something happened in that Upper Room; something that would change the World. Jesus instituted his Divine meal, the Eucharist, Mass, Communion.

Palm Sunday, April 5, 2020: “Who is He?”

It was the question on everyone’s mind there that day. “Who is he?” There must have been as many answers to that question about Jesus as there were people to ask it. It is a question, though, that we all must answer for ourselves. How will we find the truth? Where we walk, and with whom, in the next few days will determine our answer. The Palm Sunday Service bulletin is available here.

Sunday, March 29, 2020: “Friend!”

What is a friendship worth? In the case of a friendship with Jesus, it’s worth everything; the entirety of our whole lives, and more. In our Scripture lesson from the Gospel According to John, the friendship of Jesus with three of his closest friends, changes their lives here and now in just one moment. But in that same moment it also changes life for them for all eternity. Listen in and  find out how. The bulletin for the service is…

Sunday, March 22, 2020: “Three Powerful Words”

In the midst of these times, indeed any time of crisis, but most especially right now, The 23rd Psalm has something specific to say to us.  Its message right now is found in its fourth verse, where it speaks three very powerful words to us; words that speak its central meaning, and have the power to stir our hearts, settle our minds, and comfort our souls.
