Father Kevin's Reflection - August 9, 2015 - “Then Jesus took the loaves, gave thanks, and distributed them to those who were reclining…”

As I greet people after Mass, it’s not uncommon for someone to say: “Father, would you pray for…my spouse or my child or my friend, who is so and so, in need of prayers?” When we reflect on this week’s readings, my heart sinks as I wonder if we have any idea of the magnitude of the prayer that we just prayed together…in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. 289 more words

Father Kevin's Reflections - June 28, 2015 - Time For Inquiry & Discovery

Did you know…in the teaching of the Catholic Church…all baptized persons are called to evangelize? It’s true! This is a teaching that came out of the Second Vatican Council 50 years ago that highlights the understanding: in the Church there is diversity of ministry, but unity of mission (best known today as “the Universal Call (vocation) to Holiness”). 473 more words

TALKING TO MYSELF
