St. Mark, in his gospel today, emphasized that Jesus had touched a leper.  Why did the writer want us to know that Jesus touched the leper?  In this vlog, Fr. MD shares some of his thoughts.  Based on the readings of Leviticus 13: 1-46; 1 Corinthians 10: 31 – 11:1; and Mark 1: 40-45.


5th Sunday In Ordinary Time

by Fr. MD   •   February 2, 2018

Many people wonder what is the daily schedule of a famous person like Pope Francis, Queen Elizabeth II, etc.  The gospel today gives us a glimpse of Jesus’ daily schedule.  No matter how busy he was, he always managed to find time to pray!  Many of us are also busy but we should not make our busyness an excuse for not praying more.  Based on the readings of Job 7: 1-7; 1 Corinthians 9: 16-23; and Mark 1: 29-39.


4th Sunday In Ordinary Time

by Fr. MD   •   January 25, 2018

In this gospel, the unclean spirit recognizes Jesus.  Unfortunately, many other people who were with him failed to do so.  Likewise, many Christians claim they follow Jesus Christ, but in reality, they still do not know him.  Let’s watch the vlog to find out more.  Based on the readings of Deuteronomy 18: 15-20; 1 Corinthians 7: 32-35; and Mark 1: 21-28.


3rd Sunday In Ordinary Time

by Fr. MD   •   January 19, 2018

The gospel today talks about four men who later all became one of the 12 Apostles: Peter, Andrew, James, and John.  Compared to St. Peter who is probably the most well known Apostle, the other three remain more or less in the shadows.  Fr. MD takes this opportunity to discuss the lives of the three less known men. Based on the readings of Jonah 3: 1-10; 1 Corinthians 7: 29-31; and Mark 1: 14-20.
