St. Luke’s Sermon on the Plain - The Beatitudes and Their Meaning for Us

Saturday, February 16, 2019
Dear Parishioners The Gospel reading this week-end is taken from what is known as St. Luke’s Sermon on the Plain. In the previous chapter Luke describes Jesus’ debate about the Sabbath with his disciples and then reveals the mission of the twelve. As happens so often, Jesus had departed to a mountain to pray, and when he descended the mountain he called the disciples to himsel ...Read more

St. Luke's Gospel - Narrating How God’s Promises to Israel Had Been Fulfilled

Sunday, January 27, 2019
Dear Parishioners, We are all familiar with the opening words, the prologue, of St. John’s Gospel. "In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God." This week we are introduced to the beginning of the Gospel of St. Luke, and only the Gospel of Luke opens with a literary prologue that clearly sets forth Luke’s motive for writing the narrative. Luke ...Read more

Sunday, January 28, 2018
Dear Parishioners, The early dates of Easter (April 1) and Ash Wednesday (February 14) narrow the time between the completion of the Christmas season, the Nativity, the Baptism of the Lord and the Epiphany.

The Study of Saint Mark’s Gospel

Sunday, January 14, 2018
Dear Parishioners, The Dogmatic Constitution on Divine Revelation was the second document approved by the Bishops of Vatican Two. Prior to the Council, there never seemed to be much emphasis placed on scripture, unlike many other religions which placed great emphasis on the Word of God.
