The Body and Blood of Christ Present in our Lives

Chapter Talks

“Every time that we participate in Holy Mass and we are nourished by the Body of Christ, the presence of Jesus and of the Holy Spirit acts in us, shaping our hearts, communicating an interior disposition to us that translates into conduct according to the Gospel."  Pope Francis, Angelus, June 22, 2014

Holy Trinity Sunday

Chapter Talks

Holy Trinity Sunday: this is an important solemnity of the Church.  The ‘Trinity’ will always remain a ‘mystery’ in the sense that it is difficult to explain or perhaps better to say it is unexplainable!  What we can understand comes through faith, a faith that is alive and living.  There would be no Trinity Sunday without the Incarnation of God’s beloved Son.  This is the main motif for the mystery of the Trinity: through the incarnation of Christ, we come to know the Source of all Life: God, Jesus’ Abba and our Abba.  Then, through Jesus’ obedience to God, his suffering, death and Resurrection, we are given the gift of the Spirit.  We have not been left orphaned…the Incarnate One lives on through the Holy Spirit.

A Pentecost Homily

Chapter Talks

My sisters and brother as we celebrate our Sunday Eucharist on this Solemnity of Pentecost let us acknowledge, and give thanks for the presence of God’s Holy Spirit, here and now: in our very midst, within and among us. For what our readings today are conveying to us are not merely three discrete instances of the presence and action of the Spirit of God in the history of the early Church, although they do indeed arise out of specific experiences of the Spirit forming the nascent Church, for its mission of universal incarnation of the Life of God.
