In this vlog, Fr.

Many priests probably feel uncomfortable preaching today.  Why?  The gospel talks about divorce and priests are very aware that some people in the congregation are divorced!!   Why did the Church include this reading?  Why not just skip this difficult teaching?  This vlog will discuss in depth about this and other sticky (difficult) teachings.  Based on the readings of Genesis 2: 18-24; Hebrews 2: 9-11; & Mark 10: 2-16.

25th Sunday In Ordinary Time

by Fr. MD   •   September 20, 2018

In this gospel, Jesus predicts his suffering and death.  At the same time, Jesus is able to focus on what He is supposed to do now without worrying too much about the death he will face.  How is He able to do this?  By living in the present.  We likewise need to live in the present.  Based on the readings of Wisdom 2: 12-20; James 3: 16-4:3; and Mark 9: 30-37.
