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...

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...

Dear Seton Family, This weekend, we meet the prophet Amos, who was truly a “reluctant” prophet. He had the hard task of preaching a stern word to encourage fidelity to the covenant. His response to harsh words is not unlike what most of us would say: “I was no prophet... I was a shepherd and a dresser of sycamores. The LORD took me... and said to me, Go, prophesy to my peopl...

Dear Friends, “A prophet is not without honor except in his native place and among his own kin and in his own house.” (Mark 6: 1-6) This summer marks the 60th anniversary of one of the milestones of the Civil Rights Movement: the Freedom Riders. In 1960, the Supreme Court ruled that segregated bathrooms, waiting rooms and lunch counters were unconstitutional and that enforcing...

Dear Friends, Three weeks ago we celebrated the Solemnity of Corpus Christi. The gospel read at Mass takes us back to Holy Thursday, to the Last Supper and we heard again the words we hear every time we come to Mass: “He took bread, said the blessing, broke it, gave it to them, saying, ‘Take it; this is my body.’ Then he took a cup, gave thanks, and gave it to them, an...
