Isaiah 55:6 – 9

This Sunday, we will hear from the Book of the Prophet Isaiah.  Seeing that it is taken from chapter 55, we know that it is part of Deutero-Isaiah, dealing with Israel during its Babylonian exile.  It is at the very end of the Babylonian captivity and we should read the opening verses of the chapter since they speak in anticipation of how the Persians would allow the exiles to return.  The Book of Ezra opens with the decree of Cyrus that called the exiles to return to […]

Sirach 27:30 – 28:9

This Sunday, we will hear from the Book of Sirach, one of the very last books of the Old Testament.  It was written between 200 and 175BC by a man who identifies himself as Jesus, son of Eleazar, son of Sira (cf. 50:27).  Some of your Bibles identify the book as The Wisdom of Ben Sira.  This is actually the earliest title of the book; the “ch” was added when the book was translated into Greek.  It is an excellent example of Wisdom literature, filled with moral […]

Eucharistic Revival in Action at SKS

The National Eucharistic Revival, a three-year initiative, was created by the US Congress of Catholic Bishops to remind us of Jesus’ Real Presence in the Eucharist.

Year one focused on strengthening Eucharistic devotion through efforts by priests and bishops at individual dioceses. Year two began in June and brings the revival to the parish level for personal encounters with Christ during Mass, Adoration and special events. Year three starts in May 2024, and is dedicated to going out on mission to share the gifts of the Eucharist.

“In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.” With these words, the priest who presides at the Celebration of the Eucharist draws the congregation into the sacred moment of worship. We believe in God who is both one and yet a communion of Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Made in the image and likeness of God, who is one God in three Persons, we are called to worship not only alone but also as a community. When I explain the Mass to children, […]

St. Catherine of Siena Window

The figure of our patron saint, Catherine (1347-1380), dominates this window. She is clothed in the habit of the mantellate, a name given to lay women who were Dominican nuns living in the world but not of it.  Unlike most of the religious orders of women at that time, they were not cloistered.  A painting of Catherine by a contemporary was used as a model for the face of the saint.  The lilies at the upper left and lower right are the heraldic […]

Window of the Second Coming of the Lord

The window above the choir loft is meant to direct the whole assembly toward the Parousia, that is, the second coming of our Lord.  The splendid azure color of the window is evocative of the heavens.  In the Book of Revelation 21:1, we read: “Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth.”  In the center of the window, we find a throne set upon a ruby and emerald base.  The precious stones recall the description of the new and heavenly […]
