Daily Mass: The Lord grieves over the hardness of our hearts
We see the compassion of Christ as he grieves over the hardness of human hearts. May the sorrow of Jesus soften us to seek His charity, healing and mercy.
Daily Mass: Why we do what we do for the Lord
Jesus again reveals his identity as God while walking through a field of wheat, and during this revelation we discover an important insight into why we do what we do: to help us grow closer to the Lord!
Daily Mass: Jesus Christ is our great high priest
Jesus, our great high priest, bridges the gap between Heaven and earth through his divinity and humanity. As the Son of God he has the power to make a sacrifice for the salvation of the world; as the Son of Mary he meets us in our human weakness and struggle. May we turn to our Savior for the strength we need!
2nd Sunday of the Year: Here I am Lord!
The response of Samuel and Andrew shows us how we call upon the Lord in our moment of need and then share what we have received with those placed in our lives.
Daily Mass: Christ comes to call (us!) sinners
During the call of Levi - who leaves his post and follows Jesus - we hear the encouraging words of the Lord, who "did not come to call the righteous but sinners." May we recognize our need for ongoing conversion as we turn away from sin and follow Christ.
Daily Mass: Be somebody's somebody today
The healing miracle and revelation of Jesus as God are made possible through the selfless service of four friends who made the effort to help somebody in need. May their example inspire us to be somebody's somebody today!
