Your weekly dose of "Living the Goodness of a Catholic Man".
October 28, 2019

From Today's Readings:

Feast of Saints Simon and Jude, Apostles.

Alleluia See  Te Deum

R. Alleluia, alleluia.
We praise you, O God,
we acclaim you as Lord;
the glorious company of Apostles praise you.
R. Alleluia, alleluia.


From Luke’s perspective, the Twelve are an important group who because of their association with Jesus from the time of his baptism to his ascension provide the continuity between the historical Jesus and the church of Luke’s day and who as the original eyewitnesses guarantee the fidelity of the church’s beliefs and practices to the teachings of Jesus.

Take a look at the short video below, as only a priest can say it, to learn more about this and what it means to honor our name (as Catholic men).

The Doors of our Hearts

'No man has ever risen to the real stature of spiritual manhood until he has found that it is finer to serve somebody else than it is to serve himself.' 
--  Woodro Wilson

Many of us lock the front doors to our houses, but do we do the same with our hearts?

When we fail to be open and welcoming, we fall to legalism and judgement, to name a few.

The paradox of leadership, both in the workplace and at home, is to ask what it means to be servants of those under us.

When we take the time to do the most humble tasks, we become a better leader, and find ourselves in the process.

Thanks for Reading.


Make it a great week. See you in your inbox again next Monday.
