God our Father, through the intercession of St. Joseph, foster father of Your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, we give you thanks and praise for all fathers in the world. We pray for them so that they  may they find courage and perseverance to balance work, family and faith in joy and sacrifice. We pray for those whose children are lost or suffering; may they know that the God of compassion walks with them in their sorrow. We pray for men, especially the priests and monks, who are not fathers but still mentor and guide us with fatherly love and advice. We remember fathers, grandfather, and greatRead More →

 It’s a mystery!  The Trinity is probably the hardest concept to understand in the entire Christian Faith. How can God be one and three at the same time? Many theologians have tried to explain it; they provided some analogies but it seems that their explanations are always imperfect. It is actually what we call a mystery in the Catholic Faith.

The first, when applied to God, expresses God’s unfailing fidelity to the Covenant with his people whom he loves and forgives for ever. The second, rahamim, which literally means “entrails”, can be translated as “heartfelt mercy”. This particularly brings to mind the maternal womb and helps us understand that God’s love for his people is like that of a mother for her child. That is how it is presented by the prophet Isaiah: “Can aRead More →

Palm Sunday, remind us to follow Jesus, to proclaim his kingship but also that to we are called to follow him until the end not only when it is easy and everybody else is doing it.
