Fr. Mark Beran from Winnebago, Nebraska will not be here this weekend for a Mission Appeal for the St. Augustine Indian Missions. Fr.

During the month of August, the Gospel readings continue from Matthew chapters 14-16. In this Sunday’s Gospel, Matthew 15:21-28, Jesus withdrew to the region of Tyre and Sidon,” where a Canaanite woman called out, “Have pity on me, Lord, Son of David. My daughter is tormented by a demon.” She asked the Lord for help and he did not initially respond to her. Here is a reflection on this Gospel by Bishop Robert Barron. “There is a long tradition that stresses...  continue reading

During the month of August, the Gospel readings will be from Matthew chapters 14-16. The heading for this section in my Revised New American Bible is “V: JESUS, THE KINGDOM AND, THE CHURCH.” In this Sunday’s Gospel, Matthew 14:22-33, Jesus “went up the mountain by himself to pray.” Early the next morning there was a storm on the sea and the disciples became terrified when they saw him “walking on the sea.” “Jesus spoke to them, ‘Take...  continue reading

                 To the Domestic Churches of St. James Last week I wrote about how our family prayed the rosary almost every night. The rosary is not merely repetitive prayer to “babble like the pagans, who think that they will be heard because of their many words.” (Matthew 6:7) Rather it is to meditate on the Paschal Mystery; the life, death and resurrection of Jesus and connect it with our own living, dying and rising as members of...  continue reading
