    July 25th, 2021  |  22 mins 38 secs

    The stories of the Old Testament properly belong to our lineage. The amazing things that happened in their time because of their trust and fidelity in the Lord; we can expect to operate in the same way.

  • 17th Sunday in Ordinary Time B

    July 25th, 2021  |  13 mins 7 secs

    "Repent. The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand." The desire of Jesus is that of the Father: to see the Kingdom of God break through in this world, this reality. It means we have to choose to live in that greater reality of Heaven with a renewed mind.

  • 15th Sunday in Ordinary Time B

    July 11th, 2021  |  21 mins 9 secs

    We have been given a spirit of adoption by which we cry out, "Abba, Father!" Do you know God as Father? There are obstacles to this but God with His almighty power can bring you into the fullness of His love.

  • 14th Sunday in Ordinary Time B

    July 7th, 2021  |  22 mins 56 secs

    Have we put God in a box? Does our faith have no more room for signs and wonders in this age?

  • 13th Sunday in Ordinary Time B

    July 3rd, 2021  |  24 mins 44 secs

    God loves us. The devil hates us. God wants us forever with Him in Heaven. The devil wants us forever with him in Hell.

  • 12th Sunday in Ordinary Time B

    June 22nd, 2021  |  23 mins 26 secs

    As life cannot be the same when someone close to us dies, it cannot be the same for us as we remember the death of Jesus. We are called to put on Christ and to live like Him in all things.

  • Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Jesus Christ B

    June 22nd, 2021  |  11 mins 6 secs

    Science has proven that the Eucharist (Holy Communion) is the true flesh and blood of Jesus Christ. The Eucharistic miracles of Buenos Aires in 1992, 1994, and 1996 and the scientific tests done on it has revealed that the Eucharist is not a random piece of flesh, but something very purposeful.

  • Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity B

    May 30th, 2021  |  23 mins 42 secs

    The Mystery of the Trinity is central to the Christian faith and life (Catechism of the Catholic Church, 234). The inner life of God reveals how we are to live: love in the context of community. As each divine person of the Holy Trinity has given gifts beyond measure to us, we are called to do the same. In our transition to Family of Parishes this July, our call to love has been expanded to include not just our own parish but all the parishes within our Family.

  • Pentecost Sunday

    May 30th, 2021  |  22 mins 56 secs

    The promise from Jesus was fulfilled: the descent of the Holy Spirit came upon those in the Upper Room to fill them, not so much with peace and consolation but with courage and spiritual gifts. The Holy Spirit wants to be active in you as well.

  • 5th Sunday in Lent - Third Scrutiny - A

    March 23rd, 2021  |  9 mins 35 secs

    Jesus' reaction to hearing the news of Lazarus' impending death can be very peculiar: He waited for two days before seeing him. What's going on and what can Jesus' example teach us about our relationship with the Father in tandem with prayer?

  • 4th Sunday in Lent B

    March 14th, 2021  |  24 mins 40 secs

    Gratitude and humility, in the face of what God has done in giving us His Son, cultivate a greater outlook in life and puts life in proper order and perspective.

  • 3rd Sunday in Lent - First Scrutiny - A

    March 9th, 2021  |  18 mins 1 sec

    Food and water are basic necessities to sustain life. Jesus points to a different hunger and a different thirst that goes deeper. He hungered for the conversion of souls and thirsted for the faith of others. As He did so with the Samaritan woman, He does so with us! This points us toward eternal life!

  • 2nd Sunday in Lent B

    February 28th, 2021  |  23 mins 28 secs

    To achieve a goal, sacrifice is necessary. Faith requires sacrifice, the depth of sacrifice illustrated by Abraham and Isaac as it foreshadows what God the Father would Himself do for us.

  • Jesus our Hope: CAPTURED, I

    February 25th, 2021  |  59 mins 12 secs

    If everything God created is so great and so vast as the universe, but is able to singularly love me as an individual, why in the world happened that our world is so messed up?

  • Ash Wednesday B

    February 23rd, 2021  |  3 mins 36 secs

    Lent can usually be a time filled with sorrow and a bit of dread, a kind of exhaustion over having to give up things. Lent is so much more than that: it prepares us for Heaven.

  • 1st Sunday in Lent B

    February 23rd, 2021  |  20 mins 1 sec

    Jesus said, "Repent and believe in the Gospel." Why is repentance a necessary condition to believe in the Gospel? Do we not have the capacity to understand good news and take it for what it is in its entirety? How can sin interfere with this?
