Happy Birthday America!

Hi there! I just have a few minutes before we start our Independence Day celebration, but I wanted to share something with you. Here is a very short clip of my favorite loves… God and country. It is from Mass at St. John Cantius in Chicago. If you haven’t done so yet today, please pray for America and her leaders. If you don’t know a prayer, I like this one but there are many on the internet. America needs your prayers every day. I hope you have a safe and wonderful July 4th! May God Bless you and may God…

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. When it was already dawn, Jesus was standing on the shore; but the disciples did not realize that it was…

The Appearance to the Disciples in Jerusalem

While they were still speaking about this, he stood in their midst and said to them, “Peace be with you.” But they were startled and terrified and thought that they were seeing a ghost. Then he said to them, “Why are you troubled? And why do questions arise in your hearts? Look at my hands and my feet, that it is I myself. Touch me and see, because a ghost does not have flesh and bones as you can see I have.” And as he said this, he showed them his hands and his feet. While they were still incredulous…

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. And behold, there was a great earthquake; for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven, approached, rolled back the stone, and sat upon it. His appearance was like lightning and his clothing was white as snow. The guards were shaken with fear of him and became like dead men. Then the angel said to the women in reply, “Do not be afraid! I know that you are seeking Jesus the crucified. He is…

Holy Thursday: The Washing of the Disciples’ Feet

The devil had already induced Judas, son of Simon the Iscariot, to hand him over. So, during supper, fully aware that the Father had put everything into his power and that he had come from God and was returning to God, he rose from supper and took off his outer garments. He took a towel and tied it around his waist. Then he poured water into…
