Encountering the Word — Your Daily Bible Verses For we know that Christ being raised from the dead will never die again; death no longer has dominion over him.

Daily Catholic Quote — St. Josemaría Escrivá

St. Josemaría Escrivá

A Daily Quote to Inspire Your Catholic Faith “The Lord’s triumph, on the day of the Resurrection, is final. Where are the soldiers the rulers posted there?

New Life in Christ

"The Resurrection of Christ" (detail) by Bloch

“For through the law I died to the law, that I might live for God, I have been crucified with Christ; yet I live, no longer I, but Christ lives in me; insofar as I now live in the flesh, I live by faith in the Son of God who has loved me and given himself up for me” (Galatians […]

Death is Not the Final Answer

"The Raising of Lazarus" (detail) by Carl Bloch

“God is patient with our questions, our weakness, and our struggles, just as he was patient with Thomas.” It is tradition that St. Thomas was the only Apostle to leave the Roman Empire to preach the Gospel, traveling to Syria and Persia and then to India, as far south as the southwest region of Kerala. He was eventually martyred, fulfilling […]

Daily Catholic Quote — St. John Chrysostom

St. John Chrysostom

A Daily Quote to Inspire Your Catholic Faith “They ignored the danger of death … they forgot how few they were; they never noticed how many were against them or the power or strength or wisdom of their enemies.

Readings:Acts 10:34, 37–43Psalm 118:1–2, 16–17, 22–23Colossians 3:1–4John 20:1–9 Jesus is nowhere visible. Yet today’s Gospel tells us that Peter and John “saw and believed.” What did they see? Burial shrouds lying on the floor of an empty tomb. Maybe that convinced them that He hadn’t been carted […]

The Time is Short

"St. Jerome Writing" (detail) by Caravaggio

I know it is customary during the Lenten Season for us to start reflecting on the great victories we will experience on Easter Sunday: the victory over sin and death; the victory over the enemy of this world; the victory over pain and sickness, heartache and fear, everything that would rob us of the joy of life. After all, Christ […]
