I want to introduce a young lady to you all. I’d ask you to read a bit of her autobiography. She’s stepping out in faith to do something that will bless the world. So keep on reading… “Hi! My name is Emily Ambrosio. Fr. Reynold allowed me to tell you a little bit about myself and a little bit of what I’m about to do. My story is one of Jesus' consistent and tender pursuit of my heart. Although I grew up

Have you ever wondered and asked yourself “How much faith in God do I have?” Or “Has my faith changed and been actualized in words and deeds?” Or “How am I supposed to share my faith with others around me?” Such questions relate to the message God is offering us this weekend. In the gospel today, we hear that Jesus performed two miracles and these two miracles are interrelated. First, Jesus healed a woman who has been bleeding for twelve years.

Today I am doubly blessed: last year I was ordained to be a spiritual father; twenty-seven years before that I became a father to my son, John. Most fathers would agree that there is no sacrifice too great for their children. Yet, I know that the way that I feel about my son is only a small and imperfect representation of the infinite and perfect love that God our Father feels for each of us. There is no comparison between our

Please think about a couple of Bible verses today - “This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad. This is a familiar verse from Psalm 118. It was one of the first Bible verses I learned as a kid. Maybe that’s true for you too. Even if you’re not much of a biblical expert, you’ve heard this verse frequently because it shows up in our liturgical celebrations often. That’s apropos since Psalm 118 is a

Have you ever asked why we have the special feast of the Body and Blood of Christ although we have the Eucharist every day? As I looked up the history of the feast, I discovered an interesting story of how the feast of the Body and Blood of Jesus came into being. In 1263, there was a priest named Peter of Prague who was having doubts of faith about the real presence of the Holy Eucharist. He couldn’t believe that the

This Monday, our nation celebrates Memorial Day which commemorates the men and women who died while in the military service of our country, particularly those who died in battle. Although the concept of honoring fallen soldiers began after the Civil War, Memorial Day did not become a national holiday until 100 years later in 1971.
