Today we celebrate the Feast of the Holy Family which occurs on the Sunday after Christmas.  In this vlog, Fr. MD discusses Pope Francis’ concern about the many challenges Christian families experience in our contemporary world.  We need to pray more often for families.  Based on the readings of Sirach 3: 2-14; 1 Samuel 1: 20-28; & Luke 2: 41-52.

In this vlog, Fr. MD takes the opportunity to discuss in depth the Hail Mary prayer.  Then, whenever you pray this prayer it will become more meaningful.  God bless.  Based on the readings of Micah 5: 1-4; Hebrews 10: 5-10; & Luke 1: 39-45.

3rd Sunday of Advent

Today, the gospel explains that people were asking St. John the Baptist how they could be prepared for the coming of Jesus Christ.  What would he say to us who wonder if the 2nd Coming of the Lord will occur in our lifetime?  Let’s watch the vlog to find out!  Based on the readings of Zephaniah 3: 14-18; Philippians 4; 4-7; & Luke 3:10-18.

2nd Sunday of Advent

The gospel states that people felt drawn to St. John the Baptist.  Why?  Fr. MD thinks it is because they were attracted to his holiness and decided to seek God for themselves.  We can likewise become holy and help people seek God.  Based on the readings of Baruch 5: 1-9; Philippians 1: 4-11; & Luke 3: 1-6.
