  • Fr. John Paul’s homily for Sunday, May 21.

  • I am thankful for the Eucharist! I had a very bad dream last night that I was attending Mass where the Conscration was being conducted by a lay person, and my complaints were being ignored, so what a relief and joy to attend Mass this morning, and see that all was well!

  • “…on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the apparitions of #Fatima , you drew attention to three other anniversaries that define our present: 1517, 1717, 1917. How are these numbers related to each other?…1717 may be striking because it is not the French Revolution but the foundation of the first #masonic lodge. There is a close relationship between the spread of the #masons and the revolutionary events. It is a common denominator of the movements connected to these dates that their aim was to destroy the united Christian world…In the 21st century there is a new wind is blowing: instead of construction there is destruction…that wants to destroy Christianity and its base, family, property, state, and religion itself…This #nihilism is the essence of the new left…the center of Marxism is dialectical #materialism and #relativism …” #masonry

  • Genuine Love of God…



    Peter and John “upon arriving imposed hands on them and they received the Holy Spirit.” —Acts 8:17

    Near the end of Jesus’ public ministry, Samaritans would not allow Jesus and His disciples to pass through their town because they were headed toward Jerusalem. St. John the Apostle was indignant. He asked Jesus for permission to call down fire from heaven to destroy those Samaritans (Lk 9:52-54). Jesus refused him, rebuking John on the spot (Lk 9:55).
    Jesus did eventually allow John to call down fire from heaven onto the Samaritans. The deacon Philip had taken the gospel in power to the unbelieving Samaritans, and they received the Word of God (Acts 8:5ff). “When the apostles in Jerusalem heard that Samaria had accepted the word of God, they sent Peter and John to them. The two…prayed that they might receive the Holy Spirit” (Acts 8:14, 15). John laid his hands on those whom he had earlier wished to incinerate, and the fire of God, the Holy Spirit, did fall upon them to consume them with the love of God (Acts 8:17). Jesus gave John his wish, but not in the way John had expected. John had to undergo a bigger conversion than the Samaritans did.
    Are there any people you wouldn’t mind having God remove from earth? Can you imagine Jesus eventually using y…[Read more]

  • God has reconciled us to himself through Christ and given us the ministry of reconciliation

    This means that none of us lives in the flesh any more, at least not in so far as living in the flesh means being subject to the weaknesses of the flesh, which include corruptibility. Once we thought of Christ as being in the flesh, but we do not do so any longer, says Saint Paul. By this he meant that the Word became flesh and dwelt among us; he suffered death in the flesh in order to give all men life. It was in this flesh that we knew him before, but we do so no longer. Even though he remains in the flesh, since he came to life again on the third day and is now with his Father in heaven, we know that he has passed beyond the life of the flesh; for having died once, he will never die again, death has no power over him any more. His death was a death to sin, which he died once for all; his life is life with God.Those who have a sure hope, guaranteed by the Spirit, that they will rise again lay hold of what lies in the future as though it were already present. They say: “Outward appearances will no longer be our standard in judging other men. Our lives are all controlled by the Spirit now, and are not confined to this physical world that is subject to corruption. The light of t…[Read more]

    I\’m thankful for purrs, forehead rubs, and kitty kisses.

  • Fr. Anthony’s homily for Saturday, May 20.

  • Catch this. My editor informed me, AFTER I published the book, that he had never finished reading the book, apologized for being so late in contacting me, and asked me to \”bug him\” with the next book. Luckily, he does not charge me, and has been great in the past. I guess life caught up to him too…still a good excuse? Anyway, he sent 10 errors he found. Nine were \”minor\” misspellings (IE your in place of you\’re, think in place of thing etc), but one was major (I had a man killed in the last novel talking…wrong name, obviously). I fixed these errors, and republished the novel, and contacted all who had purchased the \”error\” first edition, offering the changes, and a new novel, if they so desire (no one has taken me up on this last offer). The lesson for me: anyone who offers to edit the book, even if they are \”professional\” editors, must be heard from before publishing…my error. FYI, I published because I am attending a convention where my books sell well very soon, and I need copies to see there. Guess I should have emailed the editor, telling him this, and asking for his edit…my second lesson/error.

    “They had been prevented by the Holy Spirit from preaching the message in the province of Asia. When they came to Mysia they tried to go on into Bithynia, but again the Spirit of Jesus would not allow them.” —Acts 16:6-7

    Six days from today, the Church begins the Pentecost novena. In this way, we prepare our hearts and open them to the Holy Spirit. Although the Holy Spirit is our Joy, our Hope, and the Desire of our hearts, the Spirit, being God, has ways and thoughts that are very different from ours (Is 55:8-9). Therefore, we naturally are resistant to the Holy Spirit.
    The Holy Spirit proves the world wrong about sin, justice, and condemnation (Jn 16:8). The Spirit insists that we constantly realize that Jesus has chosen us out of the world and that therefore we don’t belong to the world (Jn 15:19). The Spirit would convict us as “enemies of the cross” if we are set on the things of the world (Phil 3:18-19).
    Because the Spirit is all-knowing and we are not, the Spirit repeatedly must restrict us from going to certain places and doing certain things (Acts 16:7). This is frustrating for us because we feel the Spirit is treating us like children. Yet the fact is that in many ways we are and will always be like children due to our human w…[Read more]

  • The Easter alleluia

    From a discourse on the psalms
    Saint Augustine, Bishop
    [ 354 – 430 A.D. ]

    Because there are these two periods of time – the one that now is, beset with the trials and troubles of this life, and the other yet to come, a life of everlasting serenity and joy – we are given two liturgical seasons, one before Easter and the other after. The season before Easter signifies the troubles in which we live here and now, while the time after Easter which we are celebrating at present signifies the happiness that will be ours in the future. What we commemorate before Easter is what we experience in this life; what we celebrate after Easter points to something we do not yet possess. This is why we keep the first season with fasting and prayer; but now the fast is over and we devote the present season to praise. Such is the meaning of the Alleluia we sing.Our thoughts in this present life should turn on the praise of God, because it is in praising God that we shall rejoice for ever in the life to come; and no one can be ready for the next life unless he trains himself for it now. So we praise God during our earthly life, and at the same time we make our petitions to him. Our praise is expressed with joy, our petitions with yearning. We have been pro…[Read more]

    Fr. John Paul’s homily for Friday, May 19.

  • I’ve been thinking about fossils and human dignity – – –

    “Today’s world is remarkable for a lack of dinosaurs. Big ones, anyway. Those critters would have been among the first things someone would notice here for upwards of 200,000,000 years.

    “Then, about 66,000,000 years back, something awful happened. The only dinosaurs left are those little tweeting, chirping, and cawing critters we call birds….

    “…Folks who look like me, more or less, have been around for about 200,000 years.

    “Everyone doesn’t look just like me, though. About half are women, for starters….”
