Ash Wednesday: Let Your Roots Show!
Fr. Mike Leclerc, February 1, 2021
This Lent, this year even if we’re somewhat hidden from one another because of this pandemic, let’s let our roots show, at least to God.
Feb. 14: God’s Healing Love
Fr. Lou Cerulli, 6th Sunday in Ordinary Time
A reflection on Our Lord’s deep love, desire and power to heal: Mark’s Gospel is a proclamation of the Healing Power of Christ Crucified. These healings are foreshadowing of the supreme miracle, the miracle of the cross!
Feb. 7: Seeking Jesus
Fr. Mike Leclerc, 5th Sunday in Ordinary Time
Sunday worship with others is where we, together, as the body of Christ, united with all those around the world, lift up our hearts and minds to God. Where we draw strength and support from one another, where we can lift others up, and where we are renewed and given the zeal and passion to bring Jesus into every part of our lives.
Jan. 31: With Authority!
Fr. Mike Leclerc, 4th Sunday in Ordinary Time
As Christians, we have to in some way, shape, or form, submit ourselves to Jesus’ authority. Not because we’re compelled to by force or power, but because we come to recognize him as the Holy One of God, and we recognize that he actually is who he says he is; “the way, the truth, and the life.”
Jan. 24: A New Beginning
Deacon Marco Argentino, 3rd Sunday in Ordinary Time
Becoming a disciple of Jesus can be thoroughly unsettling. One has no idea what will be asked and how one will cope. It is a risky adventure, but a NEW BEGINNING contains risk! Isn’t risk also spelt FAITH!?
Jan. 17: Come and See
Fr. Mike Leclerc, 2nd Sunday in Ordinary Time
“I so want you to be the person who changes the world because Jesus changed your life. I don’t think anything would please me more than for us at St. Ignatius to raise up so many saints; so many women and men whose relationship with Jesus gives them the strength and courage and boldness to change the world.”
