Posted by Kevin Revolinski on 6/14/22

Today we celebrate the feast of the Holy Trinity, so I’d like to begin with the sign of the cross. In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen. Every time we say these words we are professing our belief in a triune God. When we enter ... Read More »

Love Like Jesus

Today’s Gospel reading is not a post-resurrection encounter with Jesus.  It takes place at the last supper.
