“Saints Among Us: The Restored Order of the Sacraments of Initiation”
Sunday, September 13, 2015

Beginning this weekend and for the next two weekends, the homilies will focus on the change which will take place in the Archdiocese of Denver restoring the Sacraments of Initiation to the order in which they were celebrated in the early church and for centuries thereafter, with Baptism coming first, then Confirmation as the second sacrament of initiation, and the Eucharist the third and culminating sacrament.

Having Eyes Do You See? Having Ears Do You Hear?
Sunday, September 6, 2015

Rev Greg Lesher

 Jesus longs to remove all the obstacles that lie between us and our brothers and sisters.  He longs to remove all obstacles between us and our Father in Heaven.  Pray to the Holy Spirit to teach you to embrace the true freedom that exists in prayer, both in how we can speak to God and in how God might choose to speak to us.  Listen to God’s voice and follow where he leads.

“My Flesh is Real Food and My Blood Real Drink”
Sunday, August 16, 2015

Rev Marlon Rodrigues, O.C.D.

We will participate fully in the benefits of the Eucharist only to the extent that we imitate in all aspects of our lives the generosity and unselfishness that we see in the life of Jesus Himself. The Eucharist will certainly help us to be more thoughtful, compassionate, and forgiving and this cannot happen without our own generous commitment to love and serve. This is what Mission Appeal Sunday is calling us to embrace.

“The Eucharist IS Jesus? Impossible, but not for God!”
Monday, August 10, 2015

John Chapter 6 and other Scriptures, human experiences, and science itself help show what seems crazy is true.  For nothing will be impossible for God.

“Our problem is not wanting too much, but wanting too little”
Sunday, August 2, 2015

Fr. Greg Lesher

God has made us for so much more than we realize.  In order to receive all that he wants to give us we must cleanse our hearts of all to which we are overly attached.  Then God can fill us with his very life and even expand our ability to receive even more of his gifts.

Readings for Sunday, August 2, 2015

Fr. Greg Lesher
“And There Were Twelve Baskets Left Over”
Sunday, July 26, 2015

We are the centerpiece in the story of salvation. We are the culmination of God's creation. God gives us the Eucharist so that we may enter into a sublime and mysterious union with the Trinity. Let us live our lives so as to be made worthy of so great a gift.

“What Kind of Shepherd Are You Called to Be?”
Sunday, July 19, 2015

Fr. Greg Lesher

The Good Shepherd, our Lord Jesus Christ, is asking all of us to join with him in shepherding his people.  Jesus has formed and encouraged me to be a priestly shepherd, slowly throughout my life.  What kind of shepherd has he been forming you to be?

“The Call of the Lord to be Prophets in our World”
Sunday, July 12, 2015

The role of bringing God’s truth to the world did not end with the coming of our Lord.  We are continually called to be courageous enough to let his message be heard, even if it is not accepted.  It is important we don’t just speak and act in ways to assure we are liked.  We must not be asleep at the job he gives us.

“Nourished by the Body—Washed in the Blood”
Sunday, June 7, 2015

How does our weekly reception of the Eucharist connect us to the ancient events of our salvation?  What does it mean to say we share in the Paschal Sacrifice?  How is it that many Catholics are still unaware of the actual presence of our Lord in his body and blood, shared in the Mass?  Come to the table of the Lord’s supper and be fed by his love and mercy, his body and blood.

Jesus Left Lasting Imprints on the Lives of the Apostles
Monday, May 18, 2015

Rev. Rohan Miranda, O.C.D.

That is why they were all filled with enthusiasm for the message of Christ. He made an impression, not like other people, his impression made through his death and resurrection. His impression is a tough reality, but always helpful to all those who were with him and want to be with him.

Readings for Monday, May 18, 2015

Fr. Rohan Miranda, O.C.D.
Mothers Day
Sunday, May 10, 2015

Always keep in mind who initiated this relationship.  If we love God, it is important to remember that it is because He has first loved us.  We have been chosen to be with the Lord, to bear fruit, and to join the ranks of the saints throughout history.  But we do have our part to play and so it is good for us to remember what it is that is being asked of us.

5th Sunday of Easter
Sunday, May 3, 2015

Rev. Rohan Miranda, O.C.D.

The scripture readings emphasize the need for Christians to abide in Christ as a condition for producing fruits of kindness, mercy, charity, and holiness.  We need to abide in Christ and let Christ abide in us.  The four Gospels teach us how to become true disciples of Jesus and how to abide in him as branches abide in the main trunk of the vine, drawing their life from it.

“His Mercy Endures Forever!” (Ps 118)
Sunday, April 12, 2015

Rev. Rohan Miranda, O.C.D.

God revealed His mercy, first and foremost, by sending His only-begotten Son, to become our Savior and Lord by His suffering, death and Resurrection. Divine Mercy is given to us also in each celebration of the Sacraments, instituted to sanctify us.

“Jesus Christ is Risen! Alleluia, Alleluia!”

“The Seven Last Words of Christ”
Sunday, March 29, 2015

Even as Christ was in agony on the cross, he was still thinking of us and ministering to us. Jesus was offering consolation and hope to us and to those who witnessed the execution and did not completely understand.

“We Have a Challenge”
Sunday, March 22, 2015

Rev. Rohan Miranda, O.C.D.

 

Just as Jesus became the “Promised Messiah of Glory” and the “Conquering Son of Man” by offering his life for others, we, too, must possess Heaven by dying to self and by spending our lives in self-giving, sacrificial service.

“Don’t Forget, Don’t Conform, Don’t Abandon Ship”
Sunday, March 15, 2015

Most Very Reverend Randy Dollins

Saint Boniface once said, “The Church is like a great ship being pounded by the waves of life’s different stresses.  Our duty is not to abandon ship, but to keep her on her course.” In every age, the secular tide beats against the hull of the church, and still she floats.

“Jesus Presents a Different Image”
Sunday, March 8, 2015

When we see the Lord in this week’s gospel, it might make us uncomfortable since it isn’t the typical presentation of Jesus.  Why is he so upset?  Have we anything in our lives that creates barriers for others to draw near to the Lord?  When we look at the Ten Commandments and honestly examine our own experience, have we any idols that we place before the Lord?

“Conversion or Transformation”
Sunday, March 1, 2015

Rev. Rohan Miranda, O.C.D.

Suffering is A PART of Life, not APART FROM Life.
Sunday, February 22, 2015

The Lenten season offers us a chance each year to enter into the desert of our faith journey. It is an opportunity to grow closer to God, learning to feel and sense his love; to learn to express your love for Him and become more comfortable in your relationship with your eternal Spouse.

"A Leper am I"
Sunday, February 15, 2015

Imagine the sad plight of Old Testament lepers:  seriously sick, separated from family and friends, alienated from society, understood to be suffering because of personal sin.  In the Bible, leprosy came to be used as a metaphor for sin.  With this background information in mind, we can gain a fuller understanding of St. Mark's fascinating account of Jesus' healing of the leper.

Sunday, February 1, 2015

Who has the authority in your life?  Is it completely based in one source or divided, with you holding some or all to yourself?  What areas are you willing to let the Lord control?

”Time of Fulfillment”
Sunday, January 25, 2015

Jesus tells us that he is fulfilling all the prophecies but why?  Jesus came to reconcile mankind to God. That's it.  All of history is the working out of this mission. The Body of Christ, the Church, is his tool to accomplish this mission in history.

“Dying for Change”
Sunday, January 18, 2015

God’s people were dying for change in the days of the Judges - because of priestly corruption.  And then, God spoke to young Samuel.  God’s people were dying for change in the early first century - because Israel’s prophets had failed to thunder calls to conversion.  And then, God sent John the Baptist.  Today, once again, God’s people are dying for change.  To whom will God speak in our day?  Whom will God send with his remedy?

THE HOLY FAMILY: CAN YOU RELATE?
Sunday, December 28, 2014

If we all reflect on our own family life, I am sure you can relate to those of the very human experiences of Joseph, Mary and Jesus. From this sharing of the good, the bad, and the ugly, we can all reinforce the importance of strengthening the meaning of family in society.

“And the Word Became Flesh and Made His Dwelling Among Us.”
Thursday, December 25, 2014

“The Reason for Our Joy”
Sunday, December 14, 2014

700 years before Jesus’ birth, the Jewish prophet Isaiah predicted that Jesus’ coming would bring great joy.  Isaiah even described specific reasons for this joy.  Why should Christians be the most joy-filled people on earth?

"Human Resources”
Sunday, November 16, 2014

The Definition of Full Discipleship
Sunday, October 26, 2014

What does the great commandment look like in your daily life?  Do you see your interactions with others as a sign of your love of God?  Does Jesus give us any aspect of our lives that are not to be used in reflecting our love of God?

“Jesus Always Calls Us to See the Bigger Picture!”
Sunday, October 19, 2014

When we expect God to behave/act/respond in accordance with our expectations we are often shocked at how far off we are from the truth.  When was the last time you thought about what in your life belongs to God?  Are you more restrictive than the Lord is with your expectations?  How is this all reflected in your spirituality of stewardship?

28th Sunday in Ordinary Time
Sunday, October 12, 2014

Today’s Scripture readings offer us a standing invitation to the everlasting joy of the Heavenly banquet and a loving warning to be ever ready for it  by constantly wearing the wedding garment – remaining in a state of grace. All three readings describe how a loving and providing God sees to it that there is abundant food for His people.

“Each of Us is a Masterpiece of God’s Creation”
Sunday, October 5, 2014

On this Respect Life Sunday, if we look carefully at the readings, we can see that they have much to teach us about respecting life & that each of us is a Masterpiece of God’s Creation. 
I like to begin with a quote from our Beloved  Pope Francis – Day for Life Greeting: “Even the weakest and most vulnerable, the sick, the old, the unborn and the poor, are masterpieces of God’s creation, made in his own image, destined to live forever, and deserving of the utmost reverence and respect.” 
Our Respect Life year begins in October with the theme: “Each of us is a Masterpiece of God’s Creation.” This theme gives us the opportunity to stop and think of the beautiful works of art we have seen – paintings, sculptures, buildings, or other designs. We marvel at how such works were created and how they can stir us to an emotional response.
If art, created by man, can evoke such a response within us, how much more is the same wonder, reverence, and respect due to each person we encounter when that individual was handcrafted by God?

“Repentance”
Sunday, September 28, 2014

In today’s Gospel, Jesus is talking about repentance.  This is a weighty issue in these times called “post-modern” by academics.  The problem with repentance is the “post-moderns” and many of us Christians can’t bring ourselves to understand that we’ve sinned.  We’ve lost the sense of sin.  Without the sense of sin there is no repentance.  But the good news is, with repentance there is salvation.

“The Foolishness of the First”
Sunday, September 21, 2014

Are you wealthy, smart, talented, attractive, or well-educated?  Are you a president, a member of senior staff – or a priest, deacon, or nun?  Are you a long-time parishioner or cradle Catholic?  In this week’s Parable of the Laborers, Jesus turns justice on its head to issue a stern warning:  The gifted, the well-positioned and the spiritually blessed must be careful to avoid “the foolishness of the first.”

23rd Sunday in Ordinary Time
Sunday, September 7, 2014

The common theme of today’s readings is the impact of our membership in the Church on our “private” lives. Being a member of the Church means we belong to a community of brothers and sisters in Christ. We are, therefore, the “keepers” of our brothers and sisters, for each one of us is important to all others in our faith community. That is why we have to be meaningfully present to, and take responsibility for, other people.

To St. Peter, Jesus declared, "Upon this rock I will build my Church."  To Peter, Jesus delivered "keys to the kingdom" and the "power to bind and loose."  Peter was clearly the chief apostle - but who holds the office today?  What happens to churches that lack "Petrine Primacy"?

"In Russia, the once-atheist and still least-religious country in the world, the Roman Catholic Church continues to reclaim its membership and to reach out in countless ways to the society which suffered the 'Death of the Spirit' under four generations of communism.  With the founding of a new religious order and its reception of many vocations, there is great hope for the future but great need of assistance."

Do We Know Jesus Christ?
Sunday, May 18, 2014

Jesus wants us to believe in him so that he will come to dwell in our hearts and transform our lives. One of the reasons Christ took on human flesh was that we could come to know him as our friend.  He lives in the Father and wants to live in us.  Through the Eucharist he will make that union not only spiritual but also physical.

Our Scripture lessons for today have one common, encouraging theme: No matter what happens in our lives, the Risen Jesus is always with us.  God is always near to those who seek Him and who want to live in His presence doing His will.  With Jesus we have a positive attitude and enjoy life. How wretched our life would be without Jesus. Without Jesus we would be in a mess. With Jesus in our life we see everything in a new way.

Graciously Responding to the Unexpected
Wednesday, January 1, 2014

In 431, at the Council of Ephesus, the bishops designated the Blessed Virgin Mary as “Mother of God.”  That designation was less about Mary than it was about the divinity of Jesus.  Nevertheless, as the holy Mother of God, Mary serves as a model of how one graciously responds to the unexpected difficulties of life.
