Fishing with St. James

Sunday, April 23, 2017

The Octave of Easter comprises the eight days which stretch from the first to the second Sunday. It is a way of prolonging the joy of the initial day. In a sense, every day of the Octave is like a little Sunday. This Sunday is also designated as “Sunday of Divine Mercy.” “Mystagogy” or "Mystagogia" is a word meaning "going deeper into the mysteries"- that is, into the truths of the faith. Mystagogia describes the ancient custom of spending the fifty days of Easter...  continue reading

This week I want to again encourage you again to plan your “Holy Week” activities around our parish liturgies of the Triduum. The times of services are in this bulletin. The Three Days of the Pasch are observed as an annual retreat in all Catholic parishes around the world. Consider making the liturgical celebrations a priority and fit the rest of your week around them. If you cannot attend the services make time to pray at home or visit the church. As we experience this...  continue reading

In the gospel this Sunday, Jesus gives sight to a man who was blind from birth. The Pharisees branded Jesus as a sinner since he healed on the Sabbath. When people are only looking around for sin and labeling others as “sinners” they become blind to grace and healing. The newly seeing man said to the Pharisees, “One thing I do know is that I was blind and now I see.” (John 9:25) This spiritual healing is available now to all who encounter Jesus. I hope in the...  continue reading

               Fishing With St. James The first directive we receive from the Ash Wednesday Gospel (Matthew 6:1-6, 16-18) is “when you give alms.” The following is from a sermon by Saint Leo the Great (Pope from 440-461) in the “Office of Readings”. “Dear friends, what the Christian should be doing at all times should be done now with greater care and devotion, so that the Lenten...  continue reading

                    Fishing in the Paschal Mystery Repent, and believe in the Gospel or Arrepientete y cree en el Evangelio. We will all hear one of these two phrases when we receive ashes at the beginning of Lent. All Christians are called to special prayer, fasting and alms giving (caring for the poor) in the season of Lent. Each person determines how he or she will personally live out these...  continue reading

                           Fishing with St. James Last week I ended my homily with the Scripture verse that challenged and inspired me. 1 Corinthians 2:10 “For the Spirit scrutinizes everything, even the depths of God.” As I prepare for this weekend, I can’t just choose one so I will take verses from each reading: Leviticus 19:17-18 "You...  continue reading
