Friday of Epiphany 1- John 2:13-25

Tuesday of the Sunday Next Before Advent – 2 Peter 1:12-21

Share2 Peter 1:12-21 2 Peter 1:18-21 is perhaps the most important Scripture in Scripture about Scripture.  In it, St. Peter tells us the value of Scripture, the origin of Scripture, and the way to guard Scripture.

Wednesday of the 2nd Sunday after the Epiphany – John 4:1-14

ShareJohn 4:1-14             Sometimes the most common things are the most special and holy. Take water.  Water is one of the most common substances found on earth.  Chemically, it’s a very simply one as well, composed only of 1 oxygen and 2 hydrogen atoms.  It comprises 70% of the surface of the earth. And yet […]

Let me see your hands: how many of you would like to participate in a miracle this morning?  (Hmmmm.  It’s more difficult to count virtual hands than I’d anticipated!) Good!  Keep that in mind […]
