Saturday, Third Week of Easter: April 21

Many of the disciples who were listening said, “This saying is hard; who can accept it?” As a result, many disciples returned to their former way of life and no longer accompanied him. (John 6: 60-66) What were the words Jesus spoke that turned away these disciples?...

Friday, Third Week of Easter: April 20

Go, for this man is a chosen instrument of mine to carry my name before Gentiles, kings, and the children of Israel, and I will show him what he will have to suffer for my name. (Acts 9: 15-16) St. Paul was the most unlikely convert to the Church. We can also say he...

Thursday, Third Week of Easter: April 19

Now there was an Ethiopian … Philip ran up and heard him reading Isaiah the prophet and said, “Do you understand what you are reading?” He replied, “How can I, unless someone instructs me?” So he invited Philip to get in and sit with him. (Acts 8: 27-31) Life flows...

Wednesday, Third Week of Easter: April 18

I am the Bread of Life, he who comes to me will never be hungry, and he who believes in me will never thirst. (John 6: 35) These simple yet profound words of Jesus are echoed over and over in the Gospel of John, as he continually wants to draw us daily into a closer...

Tuesday, Third Week of Easter: April 17

Whoever comes to me will never be hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty. (John 6: 35) The bread given by Moses to the people, in reality, was never given by Moses. It is a gift desired and decided by God because of a persistent murmuring against...

Monday of the Third Week of Easter: April 16

So they said to him, “What can we do to accomplish the works of God?” Jesus answered and said to them, “This is the work of God, that you believe in the one he sent.” (John 6: 28-29) The Gospel today takes place after Jesus fed the five thousand. We hear the next day...

Third Sunday of Easter: April 15

While they were still speaking about this, he stood in their midst and said to them, “Peace be with you.” But they were startled and terrified . . . (Luke 24: 36-37) The world is crying out for Precious Blood spirituality, for healing, and for reconciling! We read,...

Saturday, Second Week of Easter: April 14

Lord, let your love be with us, as we place our trust in you. (Psalm 33: 22) Our faith experience is a compilation of our learnings throughout the many moments of our life. We learn by what we have heard spoken about the WORD, seeing the WORD lived as a reality,...

Friday, Second Week of Easter: April 13

When they had had their fill, he said to his disciples, "Gather the fragments left over, so that nothing will be wasted." So they collected them, and filled twelve wicker baskets with fragments from the five barley loaves that had been more than they could eat. (John...

Thursday, Second Week of Easter: April 12

He does not ration his gift of the Spirit. (John 3: 34) We have a savior! Alleluia! Easter joy fills our hearts at this time of year. And yet the first reading today reminds us that true and faithful followers of Jesus were called before the Sanhedrin to remind the...

Wednesday, Second Week of Easter: April 11

Go, stand in the temple and tell the people the whole message about this life. (Acts 5: 20) I wonder how tempting it may have been for the apostles to simply ignore the orders of the angel who freed them. Did they consider, even for a moment, not going back to the...

Tuesday, Second Week of Easter: April 10

"'You must be born from above.' The wind blows where it wills, and you can hear the sound it makes, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes; so it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit." (John 3: 7-8) “Are you born again?” This was a question...

The Annunciation: April 9

Nothing will be impossible for God. (Luke 1: 37)  Today’s Scripture brings us two amazing women— women unafraid to let God into their lives and do the impossible. This Gospel is full of surprises. We might say with Mary, “How can this be?” Surely God would not choose...

Divine Mercy Sunday: April 8

God’s mercy endures forever. (Psalm 118: 2-4)  We use many images to describe the essence of the community of believers that we have come to call the Church. Perhaps the image that is most commonly used, and certainly the favorite of Pope Francis, is “people of God”....

Easter Saturday: April 7

My strength and my courage is the LORD, and he has been my savior. (Psalm 118: 14) The boldness of Peter and John is truly inspiring. They had no fear at all. No fear of the authorities. No fear of the criticisms of others. No fear of what may happen to them if they...
