“Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things; but one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part which shall not be taken away from her.”

By Fr. Will Rooney

Prudent Generosity

Everyone wants to be generous, but many times we fail to act generously. Often, we are not generous because we fear the effects it will have on us. Put another way, a lack of generosity often derives from a fear of poverty. I want to be clear; I’m not only speaking about the fear of […]

Will you go to the feast?

To be disregarded or despised is a painful experience for us human beings. Have you considered that God, in creating free persons, opened himself to being despised and disregarded? From the beginning, he opened himself to the possibility of being despised and disregarded. III. The Cross is God’s answer to this. It comes down to this: will let him love us?

Hurting and Healing

Our false image of God can get in the way of completely receiving his mercy. When that happens often desperately grasp after other things in order to try and earn our way to heaven.

Making friends by being friends

Christ himself is the Good Samaritan who finds you and me wounded and naked on the side of the road and heals us and raises us up. He makes us his neighbors and friends. We are called to invite others to become our neighbors by being their neighbors as Christ did for us. Then we must invite them to meet our best Friend, the Good Samaritan, Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns forever and ever

Harsh Healing Words from the Word

For her benefit and for our benefit, the Lord draws faith out of the Canaanite woman. She becomes a remarkable example of what trusting prayer in faith looks like. For when we desire in prayer, nothing other than the will of God, then it will be done in our lives.
