5th Sunday of Easter

This gospel reading, in which Jesus teaches that there are plenty of rooms in the Father’s house, is often used for funeral Masses.  Many people take comfort from reading Jesus’ assurance.  Unfortunately, there are some people who are terrified of dying.  In this vlog, Fr. MD offers a few tips for those who are very afraid of their own death.  Based on the readings of Acts 6: 1-7; 1 Peter 2: 4-9; John 14: 1-12.

Fourth Sunday of Easter

Today, Fr. MD takes the opportunity to discuss why the Pope is not the Anti-Christ or false prophet as claimed by some people who are against the Catholic Church.  Jesus chose Peter to be the leader of the early Christian community and the importance of having a visible leader has not changed for the modern Church.  Thanks be to God for giving us Pope Francis as our 265th pope since Peter who was the first pope.  Based on the readings of Acts 2: 14-41; 1 Peter 2: 20-25; John 10: 1-10.
