Learning to live the Gospel of Jesus Christ in the spirit of St. Francis of Assisi.

Into New Life

From St. Paul Center As we draw near to the end of Lent, today’s Gospel clearly has Jesus’ passion and death in view. That’s why John gives us the detail about Lazarus’ sister, Mary—that she is the one who anointed the Lord for burial (see John 12:3, 7). His disciples warn against returning to Judea; Read More

Live in Light

In these last Sundays of Lent, when we have listened to the beginning of the Gospel, Jesus has always been on his way. The evangelists do not mention where Jesus is going. We now know that he was on his way to fulfill his mission, the paschal mystery, which was the will of his Father. With his passion, death, and resurrection, Jesus brings salvation, but he also brings liberation.

Meet the Source of Our Joy

This Sunday we hear the Gospel of John about the Samaritan woman meeting Jesus at the well. This is the story of the encounter between Jesus and the Samaritan woman, an encounter between two people who did not get along, and in the end, there was a happy ending

What Can I Do For Lent?

Recently, someone asked me whether it is alright to replace the Lenten fasting requirements with other deeds like prayers or works of charity. I was reminded of the rich young man who came to Jesus and asked him what he must do to gain eternal life (Matthew 19:16-30)

Let the Holy Spirit be Your Guide

In today’s Gospel, we hear about Jesus’ temptation in the desert. I want to invite you to reflect on two verses of this passage. The first one, “Jesus was led by the Spirit into the desert to be tempted by the devil.” and the second, “One does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes forth from the mouth of God.”

Be Holy

Today’s readings invite us to realize who we are in relation to God, our neighbor, and creation. The first reading says: “’Be holy, for I, the Lord, your God, am holy.’” This code of holiness is not something unattainable in our lives, that which is only reserved for a select few. Nor is it supernatural or merely spiritual behavior that occurred in the past.
