Weekly Reflection

  • The day the power of love overrules the love of power the world will know peace. (Gandhi)


  • I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality… I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.  (Martin Luther King, Jr.)

  • Human persons are willed by God; they are imprinted with God’s image. Their dignity does not come from the work they do, but from the persons they are. (Pope John Paul II)

  • National Migration Week – January 6 – 12     

    Too often in our contemporary culture we fail to encounter immigrants as persons, and instead look at them as others. During this National Migration Week, let us all take the opportunity to engage migrants as children of God who are worthy of our attention and support.  (Pope Francis

  • I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year. (Charles Dickens)

  • Into this world, this demented inn in which there is absolutely no room for him at all, Christ comes uninvited.”   (Thomas Merton)

  • This Advent, I want to warm myself by the fire of hope!   (Christopher West)


  • One of the essential paradoxes of Advent: that while we wait for God, we are with God all along, that while we need to be reassured of God’s arrival, or the arrival of our homecoming, we are already at home.  (Michelle Blake)

  • Mark the season of Advent by loving and serving the others with God’s own love and concern.   (Mother Teresa)

  • Change will not come if we wait for some other person, or if we wait for some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek. – (Barack Obama)

We are called by God and sent by the Church to reproduce in ourselves:
Christ healing... Christ consoling... Christ always aware of the needs of others.
