Peace or Division?
“When Jesus said he had not come to bring peace but to bring division, he was talking about the effect of his coming, not that this was the purpose of his coming. Later in his Gospel Luke reports Jesus clearly saying, “For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost” (Luke 19:10). God desires our salvation; that was the purpose for Jesus coming. Yet God gives everyone free will–the freedom and responsibility to choose, and there are some who will not submit to God.” Listen to DEACON HALL’s entire homily online HERE.
Weeping with Jesus
“Brothers and sisters, recognize who we are—the Body of Christ—and that we are truly brothers and sisters with those around the world who suffer pain and violence, whose hearts are breaking, and whose eyes day and night stream with tears. Ours is an invitation to weep with Jesus at the pain of this world, and to pray with Jesus that the grace and mercy of God, a loving Father, will change the hearts of those who plot violence and refuse mercy.” Listen to MONSIGNOR KING’s entire homily online HERE.
‘The Joy of Love’: What does the Pope’s message on marriage and the family mean for us?
As Pope Francis asks pastors of souls to enter into discernment with persons whose marriage situations keep them from the sacramental life of the Church, I want our parishioners to know that the parish clergy are available and eager to meet with anyone in such a situation, and to do as Pope Francis asks, discern God’s will together with them, in humility, discretion, and faithfulness to the Gospel and the Church. — Monsignor King
