The Second Sunday of Easter

John 20:19-31 From the Gospel of St. John, in the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen. Today is the second Sunday in Eastertide, and as it is the 8th day of Easter, it is known as the Octave. The eight-day feast coincides with Passover this year, which ended at Nightfall last night. On this Second Sunday in Eastertide, in the year 2000,

Easter Sunday

Alleluia! Christ is Risen! The Lord is risen indeed! Alleluia! How wonderful it is to cry out Alleluia once again. Today, like that early morning that we heard about in the Gospel is the first day of the week. This is the day we celebrate the Resurrection of our Lord.

The album featured many songs that the artists had sung in their Baptist or Methodist churches as youths, and they put

Today, the fourth Sunday in Lent is known by some as Laetare Sunday, which in Latin means Rejoice.

A Call to Repentance

“God is faithful, and he will not let you be tested beyond your strength, but with the testing he will also provide the way out so that you may be able to endure it.” St. Paul wrote his two letters to the Corinthian Church to gently guide them into the truth of the Gospel. From his other writings to them we can discern that they were a bit unruly. They

Ash Wednesday

I read an article today about an Academic Paper written by a professor at the University of Cumbria in England. It is a rather alarming paper about climate change, global warming, and basically the collapse of society as we know it. It is sending some of its readers into therapy. Others plan to move to the country to get closer to the land in order to survive. This professor thinks
