The Journey to Jerusalem: A Test of True Discipleship

June 25, 2022

Are we ready to travel the same path as Jesus? Do we have the mental and spiritual strength to counter animosity and rejection with love and forgiveness?

When we offer up goodness to the world, we will have it reciprocated in kind in one way or the other. Antoine de Saint-Exupery has an important lesson on what compassion and kindness and the acknowledgement of such is able to beget in this world; it is a lesson we should all heed with zeal.

Corpus Christi, the definitive sign of God’s love

June 18, 2022

The feast of Corpus Christi allows us to recall that Jesus, the representation of the Old Covenant Passover lamb, gave up his body for us that we might be spiritually nourished and be exempt from sin. As Catholics, we are also called to renew our awareness of the dignity of the human person, created in the image of God.

The solemnity of the most holy Body and Blood of Christ exceptionally emphasizes that while the material aspect of life should never control us, we must allow God to direct the use of the material to lead to a stronger spiritual life.
