Jesus: A Cause of Division/The Conditions of Discipleship/Rewards Matthew 10:34-11:1 Jesus’ words are harsh. The demands of discipleship are extreme. Jesus tells his disciples that the challenges they face may well include family division. No relationship, even that of blood relatives, should come before their relationship with him. Prayer: I ask that you help my family understand when in ministry and in life I am sometimes called away from them to serve you by serving others.Read More

The Mission of the Twelve Mark 6:7-13 Jesus summons, teaches, and then sends the disciples out. He gives them detailed instructions that include what to do in the event they are rejected. They are to remain completely dependent on God’s care. Prayer: Your mission lives on as you summon, teach, and send us forth. To be your hands and your feet in this small corner of the earth you created is truly a gift for which I am so grateful.Read More

Coming Persecutions/Courage under Persecution Matthew 10: 24-33 Jesus gives three points as encouragement to his disciples, each beginning with the words “Do not be afraid.” The kingdom of God will come, and the unbelievers will be revealed. Those who oppose you may destroy your body but not your soul. You will be judged by your fidelity to the mission. Prayer: May we listen to your words of comfort and consolation and believe that you will strengthen us in the best of times and sustain us in the worst of times.Read More

Washington D.C., Jul 16, 2018 / 01:56 pm (CNA).- A new Vatican instruction on the role of consecrated virginity has drawn criticism from an American group, which says that a key paragraph of the document could lead to confusion. At issue is whether entering the Church’s “order of virgins” requires that women actually be virgins.
On July 4, the Vatican’s Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life made public Ecclesiae Sponsae Imago, an instruction about consecrated virginity in the Church.Read More

Each Mass, Catholics remind ourselves of the centurion’s humbleness. “Lord, I am not worthy to receive you. But only say the word, and my soul shall be healed.” Those who are able to worthily take Communion then receive the Lord’s Body. What does healing mean, in this case? Speaking only for myself, I’ve always thought […]Read More
