The Appearance to the Seven Disciples

The Appearance to the Seven Disciples.  After this, Jesus revealed himself again to his disciples at the Sea of Tiberias. He revealed himself in this way. Together were Simon Peter, Thomas called Didymus, Nathanael from Cana in Galilee, Zebedee’s sons, and two others of his disciples. Simon Peter said to them, “I am going fishing.” They said to him, “We also will come with you.” So they went out and got into the boat, but that night they caught nothing.

The Resurrection of Jesus

The Resurrection of Jesus After the sabbath, as the first day of the week was dawning, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to see the tomb.

Poland’s President-Elect Rescues Host

During Poland’s Thanksgiving Day, thousands took part in an open air Holy Mass in Warsaw. Many government officials attended this Holy Mass including President-Elect Andrzej Sebastian Duda.

I pray for the leaders of the world that they govern according…
