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,
I’ve finally figured out a way to be able to record not just my daily Mass homilies, but also Sunday homilies.
This weekend I look at three nuances in the Gospel reading that tell us a little bit more about our responsibilities as disciples and our experience of blindness.
I am so grateful for the amazing turnout we’ve had for both sessions of my new class, “Foundations of Faith,” there were after 97 the first night, we had 106 the second week. Of course even better than the numbers is the quality of questions and discussions I’m hearing from everyone attending.
For those that weren’t able to make it, or those who want to review, here are the PowerPoint presentation slides on “Faith & Science.” The readings can be found on this page. As the weeks go on, all resources (readings and slides) will be found at this hub.
Recently we had a young woman in our parish take her own life, this morning in a Mass for our middle school students, I attempted to address the related topics of depression and bullying. Encouraging our students to get the help they need and be supportive of one another.
St. John Paul II shared the love of Christ and graces he received from God. We are not called to hoard that love or those graces ourselves, but rather to share them with others.
After a great turnout Monday night for the first session of “Foundations of Faith,” it is now time to turn attention to next week.
While this week we covered Faith and Reason, next week we extend that philosophical conversation to a more practical conversation regarding the relationship between faith and science.
For this week, instead of a collection of excerpts, I have selected a single letter composed by St. John Paul II in 1988 to the then director of the Vatican Observatory.
I look forward to seeing everyone on Monday night, feel free to invite a friend!

My homily yesterday reminding us that faith is a gift from God, one which parents can help to transmit through Baptism.
My homily for the students of our school, encouraging them to act cooperatively on the playground, in the classroom, and at home.
Looking at what those called to the active life in the Church can and should do in response to today’s Gospel in relation to the contemplative life.
