As a baptized child of the holy household of Heaven, may I please our heavenly Father in the example of Christ who faithfully fulfills the purpose for which He is sent (Is 55:11).

Why was it necessary for God to enter His creation to affect the salvation of His people? We say that He died for us but what was the price He paid that we could not? How would the world be different if Jesus never came to save us? The story begins with an understanding of…

The same voice that spoke creation into being now declares bread and wine His body and blood. In each repeated consecration, we share in the first (CCC 1410). May my respect for this universal communion of love be reflected in my demeanor.

God is spirit (John 4:24). The angels are spirit (Heb 1:14). Animals are flesh given the breath of life (Gen 7:15). Man is unique in creation—formed from the dust in the image and likeness of God Himself as the pinnacle of creation, he was given the breath of life (Gen 2:7) and dominion over all…

I will rejoice when I am persecuted for the name of Jesus. By meditating on the mysteries of the Rosary, may I imitate what is contained and be more fully conformed to Him who suffered and died for me.

We live in a world growing increasingly hostile to followers of Christ. The forces of secularism are drawing the battle lines in government, society, family, and even in churches. Expressions of faith are met with ridicule, derision, and even death in many parts of the world. Those who would follow orthodoxy find hostility from those…

The Holy Spirit is poured out on me at Confirmation. May I share Your heavenly gift as I live in the household of God, which is the Church, the pillar and foundation of truth (1 Tim 3:15).

When our Lord walked the earth, He was baptized (Matt 3:13) and commanded others to baptize (Matt 28:19). He forgave sins (Matt 9:6) and gave others authority to forgive sins (John 20:22-23). He gave us His body in the Eucharist (Mark 14:22-24) and priests to confect it perpetually (Luke 22:19). He blessed marriage (John 2:2)…

Everyone is called to enter the Kingdom (CCC 543). The Kingdom is here and now where God’s will is done. May I live to serve now and patiently await the everlasting joy to come.

Everyone is called to enter the Kingdom (CCC 543). The Kingdom is here and now where God’s will is done. May I live to serve now and patiently await the everlasting joy to come. No one is excluded from our Lord’s invitation to the Kingdom. Not the rich—who find it difficult (Luke 18:25). Not the…

You radiated heavenly glory yet spoke of Your coming Passion. The cross is Your love revealed, not an obstacle in Your path. Help me sacrificially live my love for You.

Lord, You radiated heavenly glory yet spoke of Your  coming Passion. The cross is Your love revealed,  not an obstacle in Your path. Help me sacrificially live my love for You. In the Garden of Eden, at the beginning, Adam and Eve were innocent. They were made for communion with God. God walked…

The Glorious Mysteries

In the Glorious Mysteries, our attention is on the resurrection of the body and the life of the world to come. Christ came to call all people to Himself. He restored in His perfect obedience what was lost in our first parents’ disobedience: our inheritance as children of God. In His death, He promised life. In His resurrection is the promise of life everlasting. He rose from the dead, ascended into Heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God where He has gone to prepare a place for us. Mary’s Assumption and Coronation are signs of our eternal reward in Heaven. By following her example of faithful obedience here, we hope to follow her to glory there.
