Bishop Serratelli: Light a Candle

April 8, 2020 Dear Friends in Christ, In our yearly celebration of Easter, we joyfully mark God’s renewal of his creation and his renewal of our lives through Christ’s victory over sin and death. At the dawn of creation God said: “Let there be light” (Genesis 1:4) and his powerful word made light to guide the crown of his creation, the human person. Jesus Christ is the Light that redeems us and leads us to eternal life. While we will not be able to celebrate all of the beautiful rites of the Easter Vigil this year, such as the blessing of the new fire and the solemn preparation and lighting of the Paschal Candle, we can do something to express our certain hope for the Light of Christ to banish despair. I invite all of the faithful to place a small electric light outside of their home or in their window at sunset on the night before Easter Sunday, the vigil of the Day of Resurrection, to unite our hearts in hope and to express our undying faith in our Risen Lord who is the Light that never will be vanquished. As the electric candle or light is illumined...

How Does the Bronze Serpent Foreshadow the Cross?

Of all the Old Testament foreshadowings of the cross, the most confusing might be the bronze serpent that Moses lifted up to heal Israelites bitten by snakes in Numbers 21. Moreover, this is a parallel that Jesus Himself endorses in John 3:14, And just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the desert, so must […] Source: How Does the Bronze Serpent Foreshadow the Cross?Share this:Click to share on Tumblr (Opens in new window)Click to email this to a friend (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pinterest (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new...

The Surrender Novena: Let Jesus Take Care of Everything

“O Jesus, I surrender myself to You, take care of everything!” This simple refrain captured my heart from the first time I heard it. I had never heard of the Surrender Novena—the prayer from which these words were taken—nor of Don Dolindo, its author, but I was so taken with this powerful prayer that I […] Source: The Surrender Novena: Let Jesus Take Care of EverythingShare this:Click to share on Tumblr (Opens in new window)Click to email this to a friend (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pinterest (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new...

How Bishop Sheen Helped Me to Reconcile With the Blessed Mother

Have you ever wondered what it means to be a child of God? The Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches us that through baptism, we become “an adopted child of God, who has become a partaker of the divine nature, member of Christ and co-heir with him, and a temple of the Holy Spirit.” (CCCC 1265)    […] Source: How Bishop Sheen Helped Me to Reconcile With the Blessed MotherShare this:Click to share on Tumblr (Opens in new window)Click to email this to a friend (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pinterest (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new...

Seventh Day of the Christmas Octave

FRIENDS and SERVANTS of the WORD Tuesday December 31, 2019 Seventh Day of the CHRISTMAS OCTAVE WORD of the DAY In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came to be through him, and without him nothing came to be. (John 1: 1-3) How shall I live this Word? “In the beginning” …, but aren’t we at the end of the year? Of course, but the Word speaks to us of ‘a beginning’ not tied to the passage of time, but ‘a beginning’ that leads us to reflect on the meaning given to the time we live. It is ‘the beginning’ placed at the origin of our existence, of the cosmos, the ‘beginning’ that was with God and was God, “All things came to be through Him.” The greatness of this affirmation leads us to feel within the story of love that binds the Word to the Father in the Spirit. We are not only in this story, but also are actors in this story, we are loved and continue to be loved in the relationship between the Word and the...
