  • Fr. Anthony’s homily for Tuesday, January 24.

  • @frcraig I have a question for you, Fr. Craig…We always hear that our rewards are not here on earth, but in heaven after we die, but a recent occurrence has me befuddled. My brother in law married a lovely, selfless widow about 9 months ago. Her first marriage of 41 years had been unhappy, thankless, and barren. She and my brother in law had a whirlwind courtship and engagement, then married last April. She gained a kind, loving husband, 2 wonderful grown step children, and even an adorable toddler granddaughter. Her life for the last year was as perfect as she could have ever wished for. She passed away from a sudden illness on Jan. 13. Her death was not painful, as she was in a coma. I was not the only person who observed that she had a year of love, joy and fun. Do you think that God ever rewards an especially faithful servant here on earth?

    9 DAYS FOR LIFE USCCB #NOVENA 2017
    Day Four: Tuesday, January 24, 2017
    Intercession: May those near the end of their lives receive medical care that respects their dignity and protects their lives.
    Prayers: Our Father, 3 Hail Marys, Glory Be.
    Reflection: When Maggie\’s active father suffered an accident that eventually led to his passing, her conversations with him turned to life\’s more serious topics, and his final days became a time that was cherished by the whole family. During this time, Maggie\’s dad taught her that \”dignity can\’t be diminished by pain or loss of personal control,\” that \”Jesus was walking along with him,\” and that \”our suffering is not meaningless when we unite it with Christ\’s own suffering.\” #ProLife

  • MYSTERY

    “By this ‘will,’ we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.” —Hebrews 10:10

    God has graciously revealed Himself to us through creation, history (especially the Exodus), the Jewish people, the Law, the prophets, Wisdom literature, the covenants, the priesthood, the Davidic dynasty, etc. Nevertheless, “in times past, God spoke in fragmentary and varied ways” (Heb 1:1).
    “In this, the final age, He has spoken to us through His Son” (Heb 1:2). Jesus is the eternal, incarnate, and final Word. There is no further public revelation after the apostles and the Bible. The Holy Spirit has revealed so much to us. The Church will spend all of the rest of time “to grasp fully, with all the holy ones, the breadth and length and height and depth of Christ’s love” (Eph 3:18).
    However, even with God’s astounding revelation, God is primarily mystery.
    Why and how are there three Persons in one God?
    How can the eternal Son of God empty Himself (Phil 2:7) and be fully God and fully man?
    How does the Father eternally beget the Son?
    How does the Father through and with Jesus eternally send the Holy Spirit?
    How does Jesus’ once-and-for-all sacrifice on Calvary transcend time and space?
    How does God live in me and I in Him?

  • Devotion must be practised in different ways

    From The Introduction to the Devout Life by
    Saint Francis de Sales, bishop
    [ 1567 – 1622 A.D. ]

    I say that devotion must be practised in different ways by the nobleman and by the working man, by the servant and by the prince, by the widow, by the unmarried girl and by the married woman. But even this distinction is not sufficient; for the practice of devotion must be adapted to the strength, to the occupation and to the duties of each one in particular.When God the Creator made all things, he commanded the plants to bring forth fruit each according to its own kind; he has likewise commanded Christians, who are the living plants of his Church, to bring forth the fruits of devotion, each one in accord with his character, his station and his calling.
    Tell me, please, my Philothea, whether it is proper for a bishop to want to lead a solitary life like a Carthusian; or for married people to be no more concerned than a Capuchin about increasing their income; or for a working man to spend his whole day in church like a religious; or on the other hand for a religious to be constantly exposed like a bishop to all the events and circumstances that bear on the needs of our neighbour. Is not this sort of devotion ridiculous,…[Read more]
