August 2, 2020 – 18th Sunday in Ordinary Time

I. Am I a “Scarcity” or an “Abundance” Kind of Person? Five Loaves and Two Fish are All We Have Here: How do you make things multiply? Do you “pay it forward?” If you have Good News do you share it? Jesus tells his disciples, “There is no need for them to go away; give…

June 28, 2020 – 13th Sunday in Ordinary Time

I.  Opposites Compromising/Sacrificing for the Common Good: it is common knowledge that St. Peter and St. Paul, martyred around the year 64 A.D. during Nero’s persecution following the Great Fire of Rome, locked horns over the direction the Church should take. Both loved the Church, both loved their Master, both discussed and consulted and compromised for…
