Corpus Christi

Fr. Donald Goergen, OP breaks open the readings for the Solemnity of Corpus Christi, the Body and Blood of Christ, explaining how the Holy Spirit transforms the bread and wine on the altar into the body and blood of Christ, in order to transform us, as we receive it, so that we can leave Mass being more Christ-like than when we came.

A Word of Hope for June 6, 2023

Fr. Don Goergen, OP, in his last Word of Hope before he takes a sabbatical, pulls at some of the tangled connections between faith and politics. We need to make political decisions based on our faith, but should not allow the Church to dictate political decisions. Complicated? Yes, but important to ponder.

The Sixth Sunday of Easter

Fr. Donald Goergen, OP breaks open the readings for the Sixth Sunday of Easter, which let us know that the reason for our hope is the gift of the Holy Spirit that lives within. Since this Spirit is the Spirit of Truth, let us not despair that we can live the truth, and rededicate ourselves to be people of truth.
