What's Happening

November 20: A Time of Thanksgiving

As we heard on Sunday at Mass, life on this earth is a tremendous blessing. Yet, how often do we stop to give thanks? How often do we “make” time to appreciate “the gift of Jesus the Lord” – who opens for us the way to heaven? Especially when we gather around the Table of […]

November 18: The Day of the Lord

At Mass this weekend, be sure to hear the parallel between the parable (Matthew 25, 14-30) and the actual experience of Jesus and His disciples. The master was going away. They did not know why or where, but he was leaving for a long time. He left his trusted servants in charge, and wanted them […]

18 de noviembre: El Día del Señor

A pesar de su aparente inocencia, la parábola de los talentos (Mateo 25, 14-30) encierra una carga explosiva. Sorprendentemente, el “tercer siervo” es condenado sin haber cometido ninguna acción mala. Su único error consiste en “no hacer nada” – no arriesga su talento, no lo hace fructificar, lo conserva intacto en un lugar seguro. El […]

17-18 de noviembre: Preparándonos para Celebrar la Misa Dominical

El domingo que viene, la Iglesia nos va a ofrecer la parábola de Jesus tomada del Evangelio de San Mateo, 25,14-30. Pero, antes de oírla en la Misa, debemos entender que Jesús no quería hablar de “economía,” sino de la vida, de lo que uno tiene que hacer para darle un sentido. Y con toda […]

November 16: St. Margaret of Scotland / Santa Margarita de Escocia

The Church celebrates the feastday of St. Margaret of Scotland today. Much has been written about the significance of the name, Margaret. It came originally from the Greek, margaron, meaning pearl. For that reason Margaret was sometimes called “The Pearl of Scotland,” to which one of her biographers commented, “The fairness pre-shadowed in her name […]
