The Easter Triduum 2017

The Easter Triduum 2017

ProLifeCorner-  Frank J. Munda- Every year during Lent for the past several years I try to listen to Fr. John Corapi’s presentation of The Easter Triduum. It helps me to think more of our Lord’s passion starting on Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and on to Holy Saturday, leading into His glorious resurrection on Easter Sunday.

There are many good and holy pastors who have given great homilies on this subject. I am especially partial to Fr. Corapi’s talk. As you do your meditations this Lent, please pray for Father Corapi and all ministers who are serving our Lord by ministering to us through their preaching’s.

Also, please pray for our persecuted brothers and sisters all throughout the world who cannot worship our Lord without fear of being attacked. May our Lord deliver them from these days of sorrow and bring peace, joy, and love back into their lives. Continue reading

Politics Cannot Save

ProLifeCorner- Annarae- After all the tension, frustration and emotion that the recent election caused so many people, Father Timothy Barr brings everything into proper perspective.

Showing Compassion to Those Who Are Grieving

Showing Compassion to Those Who Are Grieving

“As [Jesus] drew near the gate of [Nain], a man who had died was being carried out, the only son of his mother, and she was a widow.”

From an article entitled “A Grieving Mom’s Request “ which appeared in The Boston Globe Magazine, on March 8, 2015. – a year after the death of her daughter, a grieving mom – Roberta Waters writes to family and friends: she writes,

“There are no appropriate words; nothing you can say that will make it better. But your calls, your visits, your invitations mean a lot to me. They remind me that I am still alive and still have a life outside of this tragedy.” Continue reading

My Sheep Hear My Voice

My Sheep Hear My Voice

4th Sunday In Easter

“My sheep hear my voice; I know them, and they follow me …”

Every evening she could hear the newborn in the apartment next door cry and cry. The parents put the child to sleep alone in the dark. The baby cries for a long time; the exhaust­ed parents clearly are oblivious to their child’s anguish or are at a loss as to what to do.

What can or should she do? She’s not sure. Speaking to the parents might make what is just an annoying situation into something much worse.

So, in her struggle and anguish, she decides to pray.  And lo and behold; during her earnest prayer, God’s good grace inspires her to sing! Continue reading

Practical Prayer

Practical Prayer

Today I’m going to pretend

I have no other work but

To listen to your voice, O LORD

Your voice will come to me

Carried on the wind of peace,

That’s how I’ll know it’s You

Peace, beyond common understanding,

Will flood my being, as I do daily work

The work that I must do to comfort

My body: for food, for shelter, for identity

Among men: what I wear, what I drive,

Where I live – these are facts that interest

The people in the natural world, but where

I truly LIVE, in the Spirit with You, I am

Free, without cares, like a child You are

In charge and caring for me completely.

Amen

Christ’s Peace vs the Government’s Peace

Christ’s Peace vs the Government’s Peace

ProLifeCorner- Homily given at midnight mass.

“Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”

            It was the great Roman boast: Ara Pacis Augustae – which means, “the era of Augustus’ peace.”

In one of the great propa­ganda campaigns of history, Caesar Augustus was hailed as a “god” and the “savior of the world” for the peace he enforced. Continue reading

The Only Way To Peace
