I THOUGHT YOU SHOULD KNOW | Jesus’ silence roars with love for our redemption

On Palm Sunday, we enter into the most moving week of the liturgical year.

As we enter into His passion through quiet prayer, we engage the love in His heart that embraces the sufferings and insults of all humanity. This is Christ's opportunity to pour out on mankind God's unfathomable love and mercy. As we encounter His outward silence, let us be in touch with the inward roar of saying "yes" to the Father. Jesus models the strength and wisdom we need in encountering the effects of sin in our lives.

BEFORE THE CROSS | Living images of the Gospel show Jesus to the world

What's the value of an image?

The image of Our Lady of Guadalupe gives one answer. Between 1531 and 1538 approximately 8 million Mexicans came to believe in Jesus — strengthened, in no small part, by this image of Mary. An image can indeed change the world.

I THOUGHT YOU SHOULD KNOW | Jesus grants infinite mercy if we see and serve Him in others

On Nov. 26, we celebrate the Feast of Christ the King. The feast describes our commencement time on earth; the Scriptures vividly describe our future. Each of us, without fail, will be there. For some, it will be a time of receiving a sentence, and for others a diploma or reward — both unending.
