The Kingdom Of God Is The Person Of Jesus Christ

Sunday’s Gospel gave several parables on the Kingdom of God. Today’s readings offer a few more such parables. Jesus is not only the ‘key’ to understanding the parables, He IS the Kingdom of God, and in Him, we spread that Kingdom here on earth.  As a new day dawns upon this part of God’s good earth, may the Light of Christ ‘break upon us,’ that we may be led by Christ out of our own darkness and be better capable of bringing light and hope to others. The Kingdom of God is like a treasure […]

Tri-Fecta on North Platte

Three years ago next month, I and Fr.

God of love and mercy, you are always ready to forgive; we are sinners, and you invite us to trust in your mercy. Time and time again we broke your covenant, but you did not abandon us. Instead, through your Son, Jesus our Lord, you bound yourself even more closely to the human family by a bond that can never be broken. Now […]
