Tuesday of Trinity Sunday – Luke 1:26-38

ShareLuke 1:26-38 While Roman Catholics may exalt Mary to an inappropriate place and Protestants may ignore her altogether, Mary is to be an example of faith for us.  There is no denying that she was, to quote the angel, “full of grace.”  But Mary is a prototype for us, and what was true for her […]

Thursday of Pentecost Sunday – Galatians 5:16-25

ShareGalatians 5:16-25 In 1938 Orson Welles delivered what may have been the most electrifying radio address ever given.  He and his Mercury Theater group staged a radio version of H.G.
