From the Pastor: He Is Risen! Alleluia!

by cduesing

Without the empty tomb, there is no Christianity. Jesus would be just one more failed, false Messiah who raised the hopes of many and then dashed them. But he did rise from the dead validating everything that he had said and promised. If Jesus had not been raised from the dead, there would have been […]

From the Pastor: Holy Week

by cduesing

Today we begin the most sacred week of the Church’s year–Holy Week. Through the liturgies of this week, especially those that make up the Sacred Triduum, we not only recall the saving events of Christ’s Passion, Death and Resurrection—we enter into those events and become part of them. I hope that as many of you […]

From the Pastor: Diocesan Annual Appeal

Thank you to all who have already pledged or have contributed to the Diocesan Parish Annual Appeal. We are still waiting to get solid numbers for some have pledged through the parish and others have done so through the diocese. All money that comes in above the parish goal ($45,900) comes back to the parish […]

From the Pastor: The Prodigal Son

by cduesing

This Sunday’s Gospel is the story of the Prodigal Son. This is the most well known of Jesus’ parables and tells us much about who our God is, who we are, and about how we are to relate to him. There are three primary characters in the parable—the father, the prodigal son, and the elder […]

From the Pastor: A Journey Into the Desert

by cduesing

On the First Sunday of Lent, the Gospel is always that of Jesus going into the desert for 40 days to fast and to pray and to be tempted by the Evil One. Our Lenten season of 40 days is modeled on these 40 days of Jesus. Whether it is 40 days or 40 years, […]

From the Pastor: Lent Begins

by cduesing

This week we begin the great season of Lent. Lent is a 40-day retreat for the entire Church to help us to prepare to renew our Baptismal Promises at the Easter Masses. In that renewal, we recommit ourselves to following Jesus as his disciples. The purpose of Lent, and of the Lenten disciplines, is to […]

From the Pastor: World Marriage Day

by cduesing

Officially, World Marriage Day was last Sunday, February 10. But because we celebrated World Day of Prayer for the Sick on that day, we are celebrating World Marriage Day this Sunday, February 17. It has been said, and I wholly agree, that “the future of our culture and society depends upon the future of the […]

From the Pastor: Most Excellent Theophilus

by cduesing

Today, we begin the series of readings from the Gospel of Luke, which we will follow throughout Ordinary Time over the coming year. We begin with the first verses of that book in which Saint Luke tells us that he had studied what others had written, but also had done his own research and had […]

From the Pastor: Stand Up for Life

by cduesing

This past Friday the March for Life was held in Washington, DC. That same Friday was a Day of Prayer and Penance for Life here in the Diocese of Covington. Tuesday of this week, January 22, is the anniversary of the Supreme Court decision Roe vs. Wade, which legalized abortion in the United States. Since […]

From the Pastor: Veterans Day

by cduesing

This past spring, as I was flying to Italy as part of a pilgrimage group, I was seated next to a young serviceman from Fort Knox. He was not part of our group but was traveling because of a job that he would be doing in Italy. I asked him about his service, and he […]
