Many people in other countries are not crazy about “ugly Americans” who visit their countries.  Let’s goal that we do not become “ugly Catholics”.  Otherwise other people won’t be too enthusiastic to get to know about Jesus or our faith.  Based on the readings of 2 Samuels 5: 1-3; Colossians 1: 12-20; & Luke 23: 35-43.

33rd Sunday in Ordinary Time

In the gospel, Jesus predicted the destruction of the Temple by the Romans.  And then the Empire of Rome gradually collapsed.  However, God’s kingdom will never stop.  May we continue to help God’s kingdom spread around the world!  Based on the readings of Malachi 3: 19-20; Thessalonians 3: 7-12; & Luke 2: 5-19.

32nd Sunday In Ordinary Time

The gospel speaks of a Jewish religious group called the Sadducees.  Who were they?  In this vlog, Fr. MD discusses them and how the gospel story relates to our faith.  Based on the readings of 2 Maccabees 7: 1-14; 2 Thessalonians 2: 16- 3:5; & Luke 20: 27-38
