Solemnity of the Feast of Corpus Christi


To truly understand what Jesus did at the climax of his life—and what the Catholic Church does at every Mass—we must understand the importance of blood sacrifice to Judaism in Jesus time. Everything that Moses did at Mt. Sinai, and all that was done for a thousand years in the temple, was summed up by Christs ultimate blood sacrifice on the Cross, offered for the reconciliation of God and humanity. And this ultimate lifeblood of God, sprinkled by Christ the high priest once for all, is what the Mass re-presents and makes sacramentally present to us.

Mass Readings

Reading 1 - Exodus 24:3-8
Psalm - Psalm 116:12-18
Reading 2 - Hebrews 9:11-15
Gospel - Mark 14:12-26

Mass of Remembrance

It was the best of times.  The world was not with us. We shared the Eucharist in the most intimate Mass from the hands and the heart of our beloved Pastor.  

Photos are coming.

Sunday's Homily 10/08/17

by Bishop Robert Barron October 08, 2017
Today's readings pose a question: how are we tending the vineyard? We have received so much from God, but are we making the world fruitful? Are we responding to the Lord’s invitation with the works of justice, love, peace, chastity, respect for others? Or are we more or less killing the messengers?

Mass Readings

Reading 1 - Isaiah 5:1-7
Psalm - Psalm 80:9-20
Reading 2 - Philippians 4:6-9
Gospel - Matthew 21:33-43

You Are Not Your Own

In today's brief selection from St. Paul's letter to the Romans, we learn, “None of us lives for oneself, and no one dies for oneself. For if we live, we live for the Lord, and if we die, we die for the Lord.” This affirms that your life is not about you! It’s about God and God’s purpose for you. It’s about being drawn out of your comfort zone and into the adventurous space of divine mission.

Psalm - Psalm 103:1-12
