Saints Michael, Gabriel, and Raphael, Archangels - Family Reflection Video

Looking back over my life, it seems that the depiction and talk of angels waxes and wanes. In older churches, we see ceilings and walls adorned with them. In pop culture, we’ve had TV shows like "Touched by an Angel" and "Highway to Heaven" and of course the classic movie, "It’s a Wonderful Life" where Jimmy Stewart’s character is led from despair to hope by his 'on the job' training angel, Clarence.

Yesterday we were privileged to have a Holy Cross Cardinal from Bangladesh join us for our feast day, Our Lady of Sorrows. I’m sure his visit will be memorable for a variety of reasons, but one reason will stand out. During his homily he spoke of the seven sorrows of Mary; but he managed to find a silver lining in each of the seven sorrows.

Learn The Heart Of Jesus In The Words Of God - Family Reflection Video

We are commemorating today one of the truly great popes of our church. He is called the Great because he was known for his charity, his sense of justice, and his political diplomacy - but perhaps even more so, Saint Gregory was known for his devotion to Christ and the Church. He urged us to study, saying, "I beg you study and meditate each day the words of God, for in so doing you would come to know the heart of Jesus."
