Delve Into the Gospels

Posted by Fr. Nathan March on 6/26/17

A friend of mine in high school was an evangelical Christian. He used to tell me, “God speaks to us in the Scriptures.” I thought he was speaking metaphorically. I can still remember the day I found out he was speaking the truth. God does indeed speak. And not ... Read More »

The angels told them to stop looking up, as if Heaven and Jesus were “out there” somewhere. They returned to Jerusalem where they prayed and waited for the Holy Spirit. With the Holy Spirit, Heaven and Earth are joined together in us, as they were united in Jesus. With ... Read More »

Radical Love

Posted by Fr. Nathan March on 5/22/17

In the Gospel this weekend Jesus tells his disciples, “If you love me, you will keep my commandments.” Of which commandments is Jesus speaking? Recall Jesus said, “I give you a new commandment, ‘love one another as I have loved you.’” And Jesus taught the two-fold commandments of love ... Read More »

6th Sunday of Easter (Sunday Message)

Posted by Fr. Nathan March on 5/22/17
