Christ the King

John 18:33-37 Christ the King Sunday Jesus answered, “You say that I am a king. For this I was born, and for this I came into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone who belongs to the truth listens to my voice.” This the last Sunday of our Church year, and it is Christ the King Sunday. We heard in the Gospel today that Jesus, the Son of Man,

But take heed; I have told you all things beforehand

Mark 13:14-23 We are nearing the end of the liturgical year, being the 26th Sunday after Pentecost. Next Sunday will celebrate Christ the King, which caps off the year with a reminder of who is our true King, the one who loves us, protects us, and saves us. The reading from the Gospel of St. Mark today is from chapter 13, where there is a long discourse of Jesus teaching

The LORD loves the righteous; the LORD cares for the stranger; * he sustains the orphan and widow, but frustrates the way of the wicked. Ps 146:8 If there is one saying of Jesus that always gives your priests pause, it is the one you just heard from the Gospel. “Beware of the scribes, who like to walk around in long robes…” But before I get into all of that,

Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. Lament and mourn and weep. Let your laughter be turned into mourning and your joy into dejection. Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will exalt you.” – James 4:7-12 (13-5:6) In the 4th

The Bond and Covenant of Holy Matrimony

Therefore a man leaves his father and his mother and clings to his wife, and they become one flesh. Genesis 2:24 What therefore God has joined together, let not man put asunder.” Mark 10:9 The lessons today are from the Church’s core teaching about Holy Matrimony. We teach that Holy Matrimony is a sacrament, which is of course an outward and visible sign of an inward and spiritual grace, given

Let Us Therefore Approach the Throne of Grace

“Surely he has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted.” The reading from Isaiah that we heard today was one of the Songs of the Suffering Servant. You might recognize some of the verses from the Stations of the Cross, that we walk during Lent. From the earliest days of Christianity, the believers have seen the prophecy of the passion
