Our crimes and our sins weigh us down; we are rotting away because of them. How can we survive? As I live, says the Lord God, I swear I take no pleasure in the death of the wicked man, but rather in the wicked man’s conversion, that he may live—-Ezekiel 33:10b,11a from Monday Daytime Prayer of Holy Week
Do not attempt to adjust the color on your computer monitor. The Pope is pictured above wearing a rose colored vestment. If it looks odd, it’s because this color may be worn on only two Sundays during the entire year, if it is even worn at all. Many parishes do not have this color vestment. It is an optional color for the 4th Sunday of Lent (Laetare Sunday) and the Third Sunday of Advent (Gaudete Sunday). It takes a brave priest to wear this color, so what does it signify?

It’s The Woman at the Well Sunday, I’ll say a prayer for you at mass.
My homily from the 5:30 PM mass this evening, for Transfiguration Sunday. My first audio post—-this internet thing is going to be big!
Today is the Second Sunday of Lent which is nicknamed Transfiguration Sunday. The Gospel proclaimed at mass on this Sunday is always an account of the Transfiguration. You can tell the painting above is an account of the Transfiguration and NOT the Resurrection by looking at Jesus’ hands and feet. No wounds…yet.
This is an image of Raphael’s Transfiguration. For more on this artwork click here.
I usually listen to music only on Sundays during Lent. But today is our patron’s feast!
Happy St. Paddy’s Day!
