  • Celebrate God’s mercy that forgives debts, and then do likewise
    by The Catholic Spirit on September 9, 2020

    This weekend, my community of St. Patrick in Oak Grove finally gets to celebrate the elimination of our parish debt — after 19 years, thanks be to God!

  • Remaining open to God’s will
    by The Catholic Spirit on August 26, 2020

  • Sanitizing Jesus
    by The Catholic Spirit on August 13, 2020

  • Receiving the Eucharist as first, last, only
    by The Catholic Spirit on July 29, 2020

  • Jesus is with us
    by The Catholic Spirit on May 21, 2020

    I could not wait to be an adult. I could not wait to be on my own. It wasn’t that I did not love my parents. In fact, I love them very dearly. But I am very much the individual wanting to explore life on my own.

  • The way, the truth, the life
    by The Catholic Spirit on May 7, 2020

    After Gospel readings on the Third Sunday of Easter concentrating on the empty tomb and appearance narratives concerning the risen Lord Jesus, and the mid-point of Eastertide focus on the Good Shepherd on the Fourth Sunday of Easter, the Church turns our attention in the second half of Eastertide to reflection on Jesus’ “farewell address” as recounted in the Last Supper narrative of the Gospel of John.

  • Every path leads somewhere
    by The Catholic Spirit on April 22, 2020

    At a hotel near Notre-Dame des Victoires in Paris in 1887, two names were listed in a guest registry on the same day: St. Therese of Lisieux and Friedrich Nietzsche.

  • Jesus Christ is risen, Alleluia!
    by The Catholic Spirit on April 9, 2020

    Truly he is risen, alleluia!
