14th Sunday in Ordinary Time: “Come to Me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest.”
Who does this not apply to? Is there anyone who does not experience in this life feeling burdened and in fact desperately needing that very rest that only the Lord Jesus can give?

13th Sunday in Ordinary Time: “Whoever receives you receives Me, and whoever receives Me receives the One Who sent Me.”
This phrase is a great consolation to us.

He is merciful and gracious—isn’t that like a dream come true? Isn’t that exactly what you would want the… Read more
He is Risen! Jesus has returned to the Father, and now He sends us His Holy Spirit.

He is Risen! The Lord Jesus now prepares to depart, to return to His Throne in Glory, and in this section of the Acts of the Apostles He is giving His farewell instruction to the Apostles.

He is Risen! During the time that the Lord Jesus spent with His disciples after the Resurrection, He gave them news which at first must have been heartbreaking: that He was leaving, returning to His Father.

He is Risen! As we continue to celebrate the Easter Season, we take some time to honor our mothers. The first ones we honor on this day, of course, are our own mothers, which can lead to some very poignant moments at Christ the King, given that so many of our mothers have died. We… Read more
