  1. I want to thank Jim Donleavy for his message, 2nd October. I have been too sophisticated to think of guardian angels, that seemed childish, but the kindness of God and the link with infinity are not to be taken lightly or shunned. That makes sense to me in a tough world!

  2. The title of my homily for August 1 is God’s Net, not God’t net.

    Thank you for taking care of this.

  3. Can you send me a copy of you sermons of Sundays or a list of you Sermons I can request please

  5. My question is this:
    How much of your conversion and missionary efforts are directed to exclusively African American urban inmates, communities and families.
    There does not seem to be a strong Catholic effort to reach out to suffering African America.

  6. I use the Word every day as part of my prayer and thank you to all the preachers. You each have something special to give me .
    A plea- the spelling is Sydney not Sidney; the latter is often used as a Christian name!

  7. Sr. Mary Jeremiah, I am your former fellow novice at Lufkin; now live in Kansas City MO. I just signed up for this site and saw your post. Think of you often and always pray for you. ~viv

  8. I need the address of Priory of St. Albert the Great in Irving Texas . I am trying to reach Fr. Brian Pierce O.P. to write him or call concerning Meister Eckhart. I am a friend of Sister Pascaline and devotee of the former ashram in Sand Springs. I am a Benedictine Oblate and interested in developing the Beguine movement in the midwest area starting in Michigan. Thanks . Namaste.

  9. 66. The Homily should ordinarily be given by the priest celebrant himself. He may entrust it to a concelebrating priest or occasionally, according to circumstances, to the deacon, but never to a lay person. I was told that Dominican Nuns or Sisters being of the Order of Preachers were able to preach the Homily after the Gospel. Is this true? Are Sisters or Nuns able to give the Homily after the priest reads the Gospel.
