The Epiphany

Today is the feast of the Epiphany of our Lord. It is one of the principal feasts of the Church. As we heard in the Gospel today, three wise men came from the East to find the new born king. We three kings of Orient are… Who were these wise men? The Greek word that is translated here as wise men, is “Magoi” which became the English word “Magi.” That

First Sunday in Christmas

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? I think it is because while many holy days are celebrated for an octave, or 8 days, Christmas is celebrated for an Octave and a half. That gives it a little more celebration than the rest. Christmas is over for most

Christmas Eve

Glory to God in the Highest, and Peace to his people on earth. 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, Mimi, I

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 “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 practically

First Sunday of Advent

Advent 1, 2018 Luke 21:25-31 Today begins the new year of our church calendar, the first Sunday of Advent. Happy new year! The season, which is largely ignored by the world, is a time of preparation for the coming of the Lord. When we speak of the coming of the Lord, there is of course our annual celebration of the Holy Nativity, the Christmas, and there is the second coming,

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

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,
