The Second Sunday in Epiphany – The Wedding at Cana

John 2:1-11 The wedding at Cana This is the first miracle of Jesus as recorded in the Gospel according to St. John. The first chapter established that Jesus is the Word made flesh, God incarnate. He then proceeds to call disciples to himself and begin his ministry. The story we heard today begins with the words, “On the third day…” This is a hint of the greatest miracle to come,

The First Sunday in Epiphany

Luke 3:15-16,21-22 Now when all the people were baptized, and when Jesus also had been baptized and was praying, the heaven was opened, and the Holy Spirit descended upon him in bodily form like a dove. And a voice came from heaven, “You are my Son, the Beloved; with you I am well pleased.” Today we commemorate the Baptism of our Lord Jesus. Why did our Lord need to be

Second Sunday in Christmastide

Matthew 2:1-12 In the time of King Herod, after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea, wise men from the East came to Jerusalem, asking, “Where is the child who has been born king of the Jews? This reading from the Gospel according to St. Matthew is suited to the Epiphany, which occurs on Jan 6. This is one of those fews years where there is a Second Sunday in

First Sunday in Christmastide

John 1:1-18 The Word made Flesh This is the first Sunday in Christmastide, that wonderful 12 day feast that is over for most of your friends. Why 12 days? In the year 567 AD, the Council of Tours, which is in France, “proclaimed the twelve days from Christmas to Epiphany as a sacred and festive season, and established the duty of Advent fasting in preparation for the feast.” Christmas is

The Eve of the Feast of the Nativity of Jesus – Christmas

Glory to God in the Highest, and Peace to his people on earth! Merry Christmas! We sing this hymn every Sunday. It might seem redundant to some. Why do we sing it so often? Could God get tired of hearing this hymn so much? Could a father get tired of hearing the words of his daughter, saying I love you? Could a mother get tired of hearing her grandson saying,

Fourth Sunday of Advent

Luke 1:39-56 “In those days Mary set out and went with haste to a Judean town in the hill country, where she entered the house of Zechariah and greeted Elizabeth.” An ancient tradition designates a small village about four miles west of Jerusalem, as the home of Zachariah. In the midst of it, on a kind of platform, stands the Franciscan convent of St. John in the Desert. The church

Third Sunday of Advent – Gaudete Sunday

Gaudete Sunday “Rejoice in the Lord always; again I say, rejoice. Let your forbearance be known to all, for the Lord is near at hand; have no anxiety about anything, but in all things, by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be known to God. Lord, you have blessed your land; you have turned away the captivity of Jacob.” That is the traditional introit for this third Sunday

Second Sunday of Advent

Luke 3:1-6 Luke the Physician, as he is usually known, was a gentile from Antioch, which is just up the road from Jerusalem, in what is modern day Turkey. Antioch was thought by many to be the cradle of Christianity, as it was written in the Acts of the Apostles, the disciples were first called Christians in that city. Luke also wrote the Acts of the Apostles, which is considered

First Sunday of Advent

Advent 1, 2021 Luke 21:25-31 Today begins the new year of our church calendar, the first Sunday of Advent. Happy new year! You know how I like etymology, so to the dictionary! Advent – noun a coming into place, view, or being; arrival: the advent of the holiday season. Usually Advent . the coming of Christ into the world. Advent, the period beginning four Sundays before Christmas, observed in commemoration

Take heed

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
