Daily Reflection – David’s Sin

Today we hear the great (or not so great) and famous story of David’s sin. It is where we get that phrase (which I think is the theme for the men’s conference in Traverse City this year) “You are that man!” when God reacts to the sin through the prophet Namaan. From God’s perspective, the […]

Daily Reflection – St. Martina

The sacrifice of those first roman martyrs was so intense-taking on an empire with the love of Christ. Asked to offer incense to false Gods. Many like St Martina had good lives good upbringings, wealth, suitors for marriage, but they gave them all up in this act of offering for Christ rather than false gods. […]

Daily Reflection – St. Francis de Sales

Daily Reflection – Conversion of St. Paul

It should give us pause. It means that our sins are directly impacting Christ and His Church now, not just in the once […]

Daily Reflection – St. Francis de Sales

“God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation” the antiphon for the alleluia verse says today. Many times we get the wrong message in a situation. Or we receive the wrong message in an email or letter. Or we give the wrong message when we are […]
