On April 27 - Divine Mercy Sunday - Pope Francis canonized his predecessors: St. John XXIII and St. John Paul II. At St. Mary of the Valley we honor them as we continue our Easter Journey to Hope.
Stephanie gave me a medal and a necessary lesson in discipleship. With the spontaneity, freedom, and love of a child of God, she taught me something invaluable about my need for detachment. Not clinging to something precious to her, something that signaled the height of her personal accomplishments, she freely gave – and her face radiated joy. Do I so freely give of myself, so joyfully surrender my attachments?
A wonderful Homily by Bishop Liam Cary for the Feast of Epiphany.
He speaks lucidly about our search for the face of God - and God's search for us.
