Today was the final day of school before the Thanksgiving break, it is also the first ever feast day of Blessed Clelia Merloni. In my homily to the students, I attempted to combine both of these celebrations,
Mi homilia del domingo sobre como somos llamados a la santidad y como debemos trabajar juntos, jovenes y viejos para responder a esa misma llamada.
My homily from Sunday on how we are all part of one common generation seeking holiness. We must, as a society, and a Church, work together, learn from one another, and be grateful for one another.
Due to the snow, subsequent closure of school, and therefore cancelation of my class on Monday night, I have decided to make the following revisions to the upcoming schedule of classes. I wanted to communicate this information as soon as possible.

When we hear the Gospel of the ten lepers being healed, but only one giving thanks, we often think of it externally. We prefer to compare ourselves with others in terms of how much gratitude we have in comparison with our peers. Instead, maybe we should look within, and ask, why is it easy to have gratitude now close to Thanksgiving, what about the rest of the year? Shouldn’t we be grateful more that one out of twelve months?
A look at how we can follow the example of St. Frances Xavier Cabrini by following God’s will and doing what, “what were obliged to do.”
As children we like to push our siblings proverbial buttons until they do something wrong, only so that we can turn around and say, “He/She started it!” If we’re honest we even do this as adults. In today’s Gospel, Jesus reminds us that such attitudes or behavior is to be avoided as well.
Aqui esta mi homilia de hoy sobre como podemos ofrecer todo nuestro ser como la viuda en el evangelio de hoy.
At some point I’ll have to do a full story on my recent trip to Rome for the beatification of Blessed Clelia Merloni. It was an amazing, grace-filled experience.
