  • Mass Intentions during Coronavirus Pandemic

    Father Thumbi celebrates the Holy Mass privately every day. The Catholic Church has a long tradition of offering Masses for prayer intentions and for the souls of the faithful. Many people offer a Mass intention for the repose of the soul of a loved one, but it’s also common to request a Mass in thanksgiving to our Lord, for health and blessing or special intentions. Intentions can even be offered for someone on their birthday, anniversary, or wedding day. Whatever your intention may be, Father Thumbi will be pleased to offer the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass for your intention. … [Read more…]

  • KEY FIGURES OF THE REFORMATION – ELIZABETH I May 27, 2020
    By Fr. Dwight Longernecker Very few historical figures have been as hated and admired as England’s Queen Elizabeth I. On the one hand, she is por­trayed as “Gloriana” — Good Queen Bess or the “Virgin Queen.” She is the noble and virtuous heroine who led her country through times of crisis and threat to end […]

  • KEY FIGURES OF THE REFORMATION — ST. FRANCIS DE SALES May 23, 2020
      Five hundred years ago, the Church and the world plum­meted into crisis. The Protes­tant Revolution split Europe into warring factions. In the wake of Martin Luther’s preaching, Germany erupted in a revolt among the peasants that ended in terrible slaughter. England and the northern European countries gathered under the flag of the new Protestant […]

  • Pray the Rosary, Franciscan style May 20, 2020
    There’s more than one way to pray the Rosary. If you have a special devotion to St. Francis of Assisi, whose feast we celebrate on Oct. 4, or if you’d simply like to explore a different angle on a familiar form of prayer, the Franciscan Crown Rosary may be for you. The Franciscan Crown celebrates […]

  • KEY FIGURES OF THE REFORMATION – ST. THOMAS MORE May 20, 2020
    By Fr. Dwight Longenecker high drama of King Henry VIII’s love life has provided material for a seemingly end­less stream of books, novels, films, and television series. Henry VIII’s six marriages were swept up in the hurricane of religion, politics, finance, and power struggles of the tumultuous 16th century. Each of his wives had supporters […]

  • KEY FIGURES OF THE REFORMATION: PIUS V, THE PIOUS WARRIOR May 18, 2020
    By Fr. Dwight Longenecker By the middle of the sixteenth century Catholics in Europe must have thought the entire world was falling apart. Nations that had been Catholic for a thousand years had broken away from the Church. Protestants and Catholics were at each other’s throats, while the Islamic Ottoman Empire threatened Eastern and Southern Europe. […]

  • 9 Signs of a Healthy Relationship May 18, 2020
    One of the most common questions I am asked as a Catholic psychologist relates to whether or not someone is in a healthy relationship. Often a young woman will give me a certain scenario and ask me to comment on whether it is a “make it or break it” characteristic. Other times a man will […]

  • The power of our presence to one another May 14, 2020
    Here we go again, I thought to myself as I entered the care facility to visit “Margaret,” the woman to whom I was assigned to visit as a volunteer with a local hospice organization. I drew a breath, said a quick prayer, knocked on the door, and walked a few steps into her room. I […]

  • ‘Wasting time’ as a family May 11, 2020
    You have probably heard it said that kids spell love T-I-M-E. Most of us know instinctively that this is true. But knowing doesn’t necessarily make it easy to put into practice. Time is the one thing most of us claim to lack, no matter where we fall on the economic scale. And yet, when we […]

  • Coping with unemployment: ‘Be not afraid’ March 31, 2020
    The Catholic Church has always extolled the virtue and dignity of work. Popes have written about it. Catholic social teaching explains the theological foundation of it. We even have a patron saint for workers in St. Joseph. So what are we to think when we suddenly find ourselves out of work?  This is a difficult question […]
