Ámense unos a otros como yo los amo

¿Cuántos de nosotros amamos a Dios con toda nuestra mente, corazón y todo nuestro ser? ¿Cuántos de nosotros cumplimos los mandamientos de Dios? ¿Cuántos de nosotros nos consideramos verdaderos o auténticos hijos de Dios? ¿Cuántos de nosotros daríamos y moriríamos por un amigo? Seria muy importante meditar profundamente sobre estas preguntas y tener respuestas; de […]

As I Have Loved You

How many of us love God with all of our minds, hearts, and all of our being? How many of us keep God’s commandments? How many of us consider ourselves true or authentic children of God? How many of us would give our lives and die for a friend? It would be very important to […]

Ustedes Son Las Ramas

Durante este tiempo de Pascua hemos encontrado muchos títulos para Jesús: el Pan Vivo, el Buen Pastor. Si recuerda el Evangelio del domingo pasado, se nos dijo que Jesús es el Buen Pastor y nosotros las ovejas. Debemos escuchar su voz. En el Evangelio de hoy, la imagen es que Jesús es la vid y […]

We Are the Branches

During Easter time we have heard different titles for Jesus: Living Bread, Good Shepherd. If you remember from last Sunday’s Gospel, we were told that Jesus is the Good Shepherd and we are the sheep. We should listen to His voice. In today’s Gospel, the image is that Jesus is the vine and we are […]

Sadly, even some Catholics bought into this narrative and helped perpetuate behaviors […]

Mercy and Compassion: October 7, 2018

Peace and all good! In today’s Gospel, Jesus presents his teaching on divorce and remarriage. And remember that the issue is not the divorce alone; it is remarriage that is at the heart of the issue. When the Pharisees remind Jesus that Moses permitted divorce, Jesus responds that Moses allowed it because of the “hardness […]
