Sixth Sunday of Easter

The church follows humanity n the quest for order.  However sometimes that theory gets interrupted as described in the first reading.  The Gentiles received the Holy Spirit before they were baptized.  Let us all be aware of God intervening in our life at the most inopportune times.    ~ Fr. Matt


Third Sunday of Easter

Touching, talking, and eating are a part of the apostles’ encounter with the Risen Lord. We don’t know all the details of the resurrected body of Christ, but it is a promise that we will share that experience in everlasting life.    ~ Fr. Matt



Second Sunday of Easter

We all seek to know where and how to experience the Risen Lord. Faith in Jesus empowers us to live as his disciples. We know and experience the risen Christ through the scriptures and by lives of self giving and reconciling love.    ~ Fr. Matt



Easter Sunday of the Resurrection of the Lord

During our Lenten experience we have discovered or reaffirmed what entombs us, the things that keep us from being the people God intended.  The empty tomb of Jesus Christ give us hope that we will break the bondage of sin in our lives.  ~ Fr. Matt



Fifth Sunday of Lent

Jesus dares us to live his passion. Jeremiah says write the covenant on our hearts. To obey Jesus is not passive submission. Actively listening to Jesus makes us more than we can chooser imagine.     ~ Fr. Matt



Fourth Sunday of Lent

Being lifted up (hypsothenai) has a double meaning for the author of John’s gospel.  Jesus was lifted up on the cross as a sacrifice to death and at his resurrection Jesus was lifted up from the grave into eternal life.      ~ Fr. Matt
