    2020-07-14 Fr Mark - Daily Mass - Sorry, But You Have Major Responsibility

    In the Gospel this morning Mt 11:20-24, Jesus rails off some harsh words to those who have seen mighty deeds but are still unrepentant. With every blessing comes a degree of responsibility. Fr. Mark encourages us to feel the load of responsibility so as to repent and be a saint.

    2020-07-12 Fr Mark - 15 Sunday of OT - Read Your Bible! You Owe It To Yourself!

    In unpacking the parable of the sower, Fr. Mark explains that if we don’t meditate regularly on the scriptures we will resemble toxic soil. Jesus is generous in giving forth His word to bring about growth and change in our lives. Fr. Mark gives three barriers that keep us from reading the scriptures: intimidation, time, and acedia. Fight through these barriers and come up with a game plan as to when you will meditate on the scriptures.

    2020-06-25 Fr Mark - Daily Mass - Christ’s words are to be listened to and acted upon

    The siege of Jerusalem in 587 B.C. was a result of disobedience to God’s word. The lesson from today’s readings is simple: be obedient to God’s word. God’s word orders reality and is the foundation of our existence.

    2020-06-24 Fr Mark - Daily Mass - You’re Thinking Too Small!

    2020-06-24 Fr Mark - Daily Mass - You’re Thinking Too Small!

    Chances are that you and I are thinking way too small on the kind of impact God wants us to make on the world. On the Solemnity of the Nativity of John the Baptist, we hear about God’s desire for his servant to be a light to the nations (Isaiah 49:1-6). Fr. Mark reminds us that whether we are engaged to be married or looking toward retirement, God’s plan is far greater than we could dare to imagine.
