Dear Sisters and Brothers, The scriptures this weekend speak to us about family life- the creation of man and woman as partners, the sanctity and indissolubility of marriage, and the holiness and example of children as models of discipleship. In short, each of us- man, woman, or child- reflects the presence of God and embodies holiness because we are formed into being by God. Human life itself ...

Dear Friends, The Gospel of Mark contains a lot of challenges for the person who wants to follow Jesus. There are days that I hear the gospel and think that the Lord’s call is not the most inviting or encouraging offer. The standard of the gospel is set high, and we might feel discouraged by expectations beyond our reach. As is always the case, there is a grace and a blessing given with e...

Dear Seton Family, The call to take up the cross, to sacrifice ourselves for the sake of the gospel, can be overwhelming, and at times not the most inviting offer we ever receive. The scripture readings this weekend, taken together, provide a compelling argument for the path of selflessness. Jesus reminds us about the role of the servant, but it is the Letter of James that points out that ...

Dear Friends, A deadly plague was spreading throughout the northeast regions of China.  Within four months, 60,000 people died. Sound familiar?  Actually, the year was 1910.  The Chinese government recruited one of the best trained physicians in Asia at the time, Dr. Wu Lien-Teh.  Dr. Wu had studied infectious diseases in England.  After performing a series of a...

Dear Friends, "Jesus... went by way of Sidon... into the district of the Decapolis." For most of Jesus' ministry, he remains in Galilee and areas with a predominantly Jewish population. Today, however, we see Jesus traveling through a heavily pagan area. This makes the utterance of faith in today's Gospel all the more astounding. "He has done all things well." In ...

Dear Friends, "This saying is hard; who can accept it?" The words of Jesus' disciples in today's Godpel (the conclusion of the Bread of Life Discourse, from the 6th chapter of John's gospel) must sound familiar. At some point in our lives, you and I have said it about some article of our faith. Christianity makes firm demands on our ethical behavior and gives no easy answe...

Dear Friends, This weekend we step away from Jesus' teaching about the Eucharist (in gospel readings from the 6th chapter of the Gospel of John) to celebrate the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The last time this occurred on a Sunday was eleven years ago! The link of Sunday's Gospel, known as the Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary (LK1:39-56), has inspired man...

Dear Friends, We continue to reflect on the Bread of Life discourse from chapter six in the Godpel of John. In this chapter, Jesus reveals Himself as the Bread of Life sent down from heaven. This statement or declaration by Jesus makes many of those who were listening to Him uncomfortable. The reason for this discomfort was their familiarity with Him and His parents. They could not grasp the id...

Weekly Flocknote - 7/29/2021

Dear Seton Family, Pursuing a life of faith takes more than a little bit of openness to mystery and to "possibility." There is certainly room for doubts and questions (the apostles Thomas teaches us that), but we cannot approach Jesus if we think we already have all the answers. If we think we have it all figured out, then there is no room for an alternative answer, so skepticism (whi...
