The Transfiguration of Our Lord Jesus Christ

My time at Camp Crucis recently reminded me of my days as a Boy Scout. My old friend, Fr. Moseley, or Father Salt as I like to call him, was a fellow Scout, and we went on many camp-outs together. We learned many things about camping. We learned to prepare our gear, shop for food, prepare meals, and best of all we learned how to put up tents and set

Ninth Sunday after Pentecost

“The Spirit helps us in our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we ought, but that very Spirit intercedes with sighs too deep for words. And God, who searches the heart, knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.” Romans 8:26 ff Last week we began a discussion about life in the Spirit,

Eighth Sunday after Pentecost

Romans 8 and the Holy Spirit For the last seven weeks we have heard snippets from St. Paul’s letter to the Romans. This letter is the longest of all of the epistles of the Apostle to the Gentiles. Paul did not have much success in preaching to the Jews, his own people, and the leaders even plotted to have him killed. It was his declaration of his Roman citizenship that

Seventh Sunday after Pentecost

The last verse of what we heard last week from St. Paul’s letter to the Romans was this: …to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace. (Romans 8:6) You know that sometimes our lectionary leaves out verses for whatever reason. This time, it’s Romans 8:7 and 8. So let me read it all together for you. To set the mind on the flesh is death, but to

Sixth Sunday after Pentecost

Matthew 11:25-30 At that time Jesus said, “I thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and the intelligent and have revealed them to infants;” “To set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace.” Romans 8:6 Several years ago, when we lived in Grapevine, as I was getting ready for work one morning, I had the television on tuned

Fifth Sunday after Pentecost

Notes on the sacrament of Baptism Greek: Baptizo, to wash or to immerse. In Judaism, to wash ones hands in ritual for purity. Matthew 15:2 (Pharisees said.) “Why do your disciples break the tradition of the elders? For they do not Baptizo their hands when they eat.” There is one baptism Ephesians 4: There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you

Fourth Sunday after Pentecost

Jesus said, “Brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child, and children will rise against parents and have them put to death; and you will be hated by all because of my name.” Occasionally I see a TV commercial for the First Baptist Church in Wichita Falls. When describing their service, there is mention of great praise music and an uplifting message from the pastor. When I

Third Sunday after Pentecost

Jesus said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore ask the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.” One of my favorite days occurred just recently. It was the last Friday in May. What day was it, you might ask? The last day of school! I have different reasons for liking that day now than I had many years ago.

Second Sunday after Pentecost

Hosea 5:15-6:6, Ps 50:7:15, Romans 4:13-18, Matthew 9:9-13 The Call. In the Gospel according to Matthew that we read today, we heard about the call of Matthew himself. When Jesus saw Matthew sitting in the tax booth, he said, “Follow me.” Matthew got up and followed him. It seems like such a simple statement. It’s not a question. Is it an invitation? Or a directive? And why Matthew? The Gospel

Trinity Sunday

The Trinity – not just a river in Texas If you grew up in the North Texas area, you most likely went to Six Flags over Texas a time or two. Being from Ft. Worth, I went several times a year when I was young. One of my favorite rides was LaSalle’s Riverboat Ride. That was one of the original rides of the park, which opened in 1961, and it’s

    • Stations of the CrossStations of the CrossTime: 6:00 pm
      Also known as "way of the cross" or "via crucis" this devotion consists of 14 stations, taken both from Scripture and tradition, since the 18th century when the Church officially approved the now common Lenten practice. Through the stations, we are able to spiritually journey to the via dolorosa (Latin for "way of sorrows" or "way of suffering"). Beginning with Christ's condemnation all the way to his body being laid in the tomb, each "station" allows us to pray and reflect in prayer. Afterwards we meet in the Parish Hall for a Lenten study and meal.
