The Everlasting King

Thursday September 28th, 2017 Saint Wenceslaus, Martyr Saint Lawrence Ruiz and Companions, Martyrs Luke 9:1-6 An earthly king doth question who, Be the man who dost such things. Be he a prophet or Elijah of old, Or the one whose neck made sword to ring? The king's perplexed, His vision blurred, His past and future vexed. Can bone and sinew, Join the spirit, And the living flesh? Tis not a prophet from of old, Nor the bane of Baal he sees. Tis not the Voice, No, none of these, Tis the everlasting King. Author's Note:  I realize that not everyone...

In Genesis the very face of evil is on a serpent.  We...

Book Recommedation Luke Meditations Prayer Reading Scripture

How to get better at prayer.

Luke 6: 12-19 In today's Gospel we read that Jesus spent the night in prayer.  When was the last time you or I spent the night in prayer?  I'm doing great if I spend 10 minutes in prayer.  Maybe a few times a week I'll spend 20-30 minutes in prayer with the rosary.  Once a month, if I remember, I'll spend maybe an hour in prayer in Adoration but even much of that is time spent trying to rein in my wandering mind. How does Jesus spend the night in prayer?  I mean, what does He do during that time?...
