As we head through Lent towards Good Friday and then onto Easter. It can be power to meditate on what is called the 'Last 7 Words of Christ'.

1) Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.

2) Today you will be with me in paradise.

3) Woman, behold, thy son! Behold, thy mother!

4) My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?

5) I thirst.

6) It is finished.

7) Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit.

St Joseph is mentioned in all the Gospels, but no words of his are ever recorded in scripture. You could say St Joseph is the strong silent type. The Gospel of Matthew tells us that when Mary was betrothed to him but before they lived together, she was found with child through the Holy Spirit, and Joseph since he was a righteous man, and unwilling to expose her to shame, decided to divorce her quietly., but then an angel appeared i...

Advent comes with some challenges …for us in the northern hemisphere the days are now short and dark. Another challenge especially for children is patience. Waiting for those wrapped gifts under the tree to be opened. Celebrating Advent means learning how to wait. We hear in Psalm 130 - My soul waits for the Lord more than watchmen for daybreak. But what if Advent is the opportunity YOU have been waiting for? That time to grow in y...

Happy New Year! Advent is the beginning of a new liturgical year in the Church. Do you have a New Years Resolution for this New Liturgical Year? Let me recommend a simple one… To Begin Again.

Venerable Bruno Lanteri, who founded the Oblates of the Virgin Mary, had a popular phrase he often used… Begin Again.

What a great phrase to embrace for Advent. Each Year we have an opportunity to Begin Again with each Advent. If we have strug...

Christ became obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Because of this, God greatly exalted Him and bestowed on Him the name which is above every other name.

When Jesus arrives at the Tomb of Lazarus, Mary his sister kneels before Jesus and said, “Lord if you had been here my brother would not have died”. Jesus was friends with Lazarus and his sisters. When he sees her weeping, he is moved and The gospel tell us, Jesus Wept. Those 2 words. Are the shortest sentence in the Gospels. "Jesus wept."

Think of that person in your life you have a hard time reconciling with…if he or she doesn’t come immediately to your mind ask your guardian angel to help you discern who this person is. Pray for that person every day throughout the rest of Lent, even if you can’t stand them. What good is it to fast and obey every discipline of Lent but still end up after 40 days not reconciled with each other? The Lord’s Prayer is an important pra...

When Saint Pope John Paul the 2nd added the Luminous Mysteries to the Holy Rosary back around 2002, I found the Transfiguration to be the most difficult mystery for me to meditate on. I knew its story but didn’t know to relate it to my life. Years later after dealing with medical struggles, I realized that to experience the Transfiguration was to grasp a small sense of God’s grace in my life...

It’s OK for Lent to be a struggle. Christ never promised us fame, riches, or happiness in this life, but rather suffering poverty and sacrifice. The desert of lent helps us discern the need for God. We must realize in most cases the desert is more of a path then a place for us to live. If we follow in the path of Christ, that is in His Way of the Cross, we find not a crown of gold but a crown of thorns.

The majority of the details about the nativity all come from the Gospel of Luke, but before St Luke tells us anything about Jesus, he tells us about John The Baptist. In a way, I often think of John the Baptist as the patron of Advent...

Adorable Heart of Jesus, glowing with love for us and inflamed with zeal for our salvation. O Heart that understands the misery to which our sins have brought us, infinitely rich in mercy to heal the wounds of our souls, behold me humbly kneeling before You to express the sorrow that fills my heart for the coldness and indifference with which I have so long returned the numberless benefits which You have bestowed upon me.
