The Epiphany of the Lord

The visitation of the Magi reveals our need to look for the Lord outside of our “tribe”, where we feel comfortable and in control.  The revelation of God’s saving power outside the tribe of Israel urges us to be inclusive in our relationships and acknowledge that Jesus came to save us all.


The Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph

As we begin the new year let us consider that the word of God’s face is always plural reflecting our attitudes, sentiments, and personality.  At the threshold of 2019 may we ask for divine prosperity, presence, and peace.  May we be surprised at the unique ways God will touch our lives.  Let us think and live outside the box.    ~ Fr. Matt

Fourth Sunday of Advent

On the Fourth Sunday of Advent we have the final countdown to the celebration of the birth of our Savior.  What are the lessons we learned over the past four weeks?  Are we ready to renew a sense of awe and thankfulness in our lifestyle?  As you feel the embrace of love from your significant others, remember the source is found in Jesus’ love for you.    ~Fr. Matt

Third Sunday of Advent

On this Third Sunday of Advent John the Baptizer is appealing to our seemingly humdrum lives. It’s more fun to a do a heroic deed than to find fulfillment in doing our daily duties. It requires strength and commitment in which we do not give in to a simple resignation of what is necessary for our family’s health and welfare. Conversion becomes the hidden principle permeating the routing of our lives as a whole. ~ Fr. Matt
