There is more to us than meets the eye. We are more than just flesh and blood; we are soul and spirit. So the day we become part of the body of Christ through the sacrament of baptism is just as important as the day we are born. Maybe more so. Read More

“Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and kindle in them the fire of your love. Send forth your spirit and they shall be created and thou shalt renew the face of the earth.” Amen.

When I cross my arms to walk up during the sacrament for the blessing. It is the reason I go to Mass every week to see Jesus when I get my blessing.” Read More
