Faith & Love; The Foundation Of The Church

  aints Peter and Paul, known for their faith in Christ and their love for the Church, we honor with today’s Solemnity in their names. Saint Peter knew Christ during his earthly life and ministry.  He listened to Christ preach, watched as he healed the sick, observed his compassion for sinners of all stripes, and was witness to his resurrection.  Saint Peter was the first of the Apostles to give expression to the faith: “You are the Christ, the Son of the Living God.”  (Matthew 16:16) Saint Paul came to know Christ by the grace […]

Ordained A Priest 24 Years Today

The origins of today’s great celebration go back at least as far as 1670, when the devotion was celebrated by St. John Eudes in Rennes, France.  The devotion spread even further after the visions received by St. Margaret Mary Alacoque (1647 – 1690).  From this time, France regularly maintained the celebration of the Sacred Heart, until Pope Pius IX extended the celebration to […]
