A Hub of Cross-Cultural Catholic Evangelization
Today’s readings point us to “readiness.” The Lord is calling each of us to be ready at any moment to pray, fast, believe, and to follow Him. We see that God calls and sends chosen men from among many to be His messengers- to go and call people to Himself. Jonah was called to announce…Read More
“He has entered the sanctuary once and for all through his own blood ” (Heb 9:12). My dear friends, I wish to reflect on the saving power of the blood of Jesus through which He has paid the ultimate price of our redemption once and for all. The first reading from the book of Hebrew…Read More
I love confrontation. That’s probably strange to read since most people would rather run away or divert any sort of confrontation from arising. Whenever I see a situation that I don’t agree with, I’m quick to bring attention to it. My husband, however, likes to keep the peace and avoids confrontation at all cost. He…Read More
There is, probably, no more appropriate psalm for today’s memorial of Saint Agnes than Psalm 40, which the liturgy presents us with for reflection: Here am I, Lord; I come to do your will. Sacrifice or oblation you wished not, but ears open to obedience you gave me.Burnt offerings or sin-offerings you sought not; then…Read More

Everything about a wedding ceremony – the dress, the venue, the cake, the lights, the reception, the music – speaks of happiness, love and joy.

I waited patiently for the Lord; he inclined to me and heard my cry. He drew me up from the desolate pit, out of the miry bog, and set my feet upon a rock, making my steps secure. He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God—Psalm 40:1-3
