This Week Letter – November 22, 2020

Brothers and Sisters,   I am not ready for self judgment.  It could be a very embarrassing experience . . .   Thinking of the words of Jesus, I come to a terrible conclusion.  Most of the good being done in my presence is the result of your kindness, Brothers and Sisters.  Rarely must I.. read more →

This Week Letter – November 15, 2020

Brothers and Sisters,   Be careful there are no holes in your pockets, for you just may lose what you have . . .   One of the reasons for people saying that today’s parable is unfair appears toward the end of the Gospel, where Jesus says:  “For to everyone who has, more will be.. read more →

This Week Letter – November 8, 2020

Brothers and Sisters,   There are some things that you just don’t borrow . . . I’m sorry . . . In today’s Gospel, we realize that there are certain things that cannot be borrowed.

This Week Letter – November 1, 2020

Brothers and Sisters,   I thought that they were all unhappy!   The words of Jesus might seem very strange to you.  The poor in spirit, the mournful, the meek, those who thirst for righteousness, the merciful, the clean of heart, those who bring peace, the persecuted . . . these He calls happy.  I.. read more →

This Week Letter – October 18, 2020

Brothers and Sisters . . . You remind me of Someone!   I hope that no one present in the community of St Constance Parish would try to use the words of Jesus against Him.  In that case, we would be like the Pharisees, of whom today’s Gospel speaks.  No doubt, there are times when.. read more →

This Week Letter – October 11, 2020

Brothers and Sisters,   A few weeks ago, with special permission, I was able to confirm a group of young people from our parish.  I recall a conversation I had with one of the persons a few days before the Confirmation ceremony.  For private reasons, she was unable to appear in church in a nice.. read more →

This Week Letter – October 4, 2020

This Week Letter – September 20, 2020

Brothers and Sisters,   Tomorrow is Monday, and so to work!

This.. read more →
