Advent 1 – The Armor of Light

Let us then lay aside the works of darkness, and put on the armor of light.” From St. Paul’s letter to the Romans. Today marks the first Sunday in Advent. The theme of the coming of the Day of the Lord, or the advent of the Lord to judge the living and the dead is a constant in our teaching of the Gospel. Jesus describes it in the context of

Christ the King

This is the King of the Jews, from the Gospel of St. Luke Today is what is known as Christ the King Sunday. It is also the last Sunday of the Church year, as next week Advent begins. Today we celebrate the Kingship of our Lord Jesus, who ascended into heaven and is seated on the right hand of the Father, as we say in the Nicene Creed. We Americans

Let the rivers clap their hands

Let the rivers clap their hands, * and let the hills ring out with joy before the LORD, when he comes to judge the earth. In righteousness shall he judge the world * and the peoples with equity.

Have Mercy on Me a Sinner

Today in St. Paul’s 2nd letter to St. Timothy we are looking into the mind of an Apostle who knows the end is quite near for him. “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.” Wow he could almost be reading from Aristotle’s Nicomachean Ethics, and in fact he likely knows it pretty well. Eudaimonia is the Greek philosophical term for the

If We are Faithless, He Remains Faithful

The saying is sure: If we have died with him, we will also live with him; if we endure, we will also reign with him; if we deny him, he will also deny us; if we are faithless, he remains faithful–for he cannot deny himself. From the second letter to St. Timothy. Continuing in the second letter to St. Timothy, we read St. Paul exhorting St. Timothy to keep the
