Reflection 13, February 7, 2016, 16th Sunday of Matthew, the Parable of the Talents PONDER THESE THINGS IN YOUR HEART - February 9, 2016 ... sometimes I do not! I do even worse when I struggle. Too often I depend upon myself. Often, I do not even enlist the help of others. I am a product of my culture and we are individualists to the core. And so, it seems that I am conditioned to solve my problems by myself. The Christian, the human person, is not an island.

Sermon for All Saints Day RORATE CÆLI - November 3, 2015 "Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God." It was his first time in Rome, and he was impressed, even overwhelmed by this place, where the ancient and the contemporary stand together, a mixture of chaos and faith, a sense of decay amidst the feeling of eternity. He was on his way to a church to see a statue of St. Teresa of Avila that a priest back home had insisted he see while in Rome. Knowing the priest, he knew that he could not go home ...http://rorate-caeli.blogspot.com/2015/11/sermon-for-all-saints-day.html
Who Is a Catholic ? GLORIA OLIVAE - November 2, 2015 ... a baptismal and marriage certificate are fine but they are not signs of one's Catholicity. 3.
