3rd Sunday of Lent

COMING CLOSER TO CHRIST: Christ emphasizes that everyone who refuses to repent (the barren fig tree symbolizes someone who lacks the fruits of repentance) will stay separated from God. “If you do not repent, you will all perish.” This is an uncomfortable truth, but one that the Church wants us to consider deeply, especially during…

COMING CLOSER TO CHRIST: “This is my Son, my Chosen; listen to him!” Often in the spiritual life, we can struggle with the temptation to say too much. God is calling us to listen attentively to his words and not to feel compelled to have to say something. He is looking for a response in…

Do you know what a Columbarium is? Do you realize that you can do a corporal act of mercy and visit the dead right here at Sacred Heart parish? Right below the Church is a crypt where urns are placed. Praying for the dead is an           act of mercy and charity. Just ask our receptionist…

3rd Sunday in Ordinary Time

COMING CLOSER TO CHRIST: The image of Christ reading scripture in the synagogue is what Scripture is all about: God’s presence and his voice/word which is transmitted to us. The letter to the Hebrews puts it well: “For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division…

COMING CLOSER TO CHRIST: In the story of the wedding at Cana, we hear the last words uttered by the Blessed Virgin Mary in the Bible: “Do whatever he tells you.” Mary doesn’t speak often in the Sacred Scriptures, but every time she does speak, her words overflow with wisdom. Mary was the very first…
