Dear brothers and sisters,

           During the course of this series, we’ve talked about worry; and recall that we need to believe that worry is a choice as Jesus states when he says “do not worry” (Matthew 6:31,34); and that worry is not merely something that we just...

          This weekend’s Masses celebrate the very end of the Liturgical Year, and today we recognize that Jesus Christ is King of the Universe.  In today’s Gospel reading, from the story of the Crucifixion according to St. Luke, we hear about the “bad thief” and the “...
