The Mystical Body of Christ

We celebrate All Saints’ Day on November 1st, and All Souls’ Day on November 2nd. These two holy days serve as a reminder of the purpose of our earthly lives, and the consequences we face after death, based on how we lived…

Christ the King

On the fourth Sunday of November, only three weeks after the national elections, we celebrate the Feast of Christ the King. It is a time to remind ourselves that we have a Divine King, Jesus Christ, and He is the One on Whom we rely for our happiness on this Earth and for Eternity…

He Is Risen!

This month we celebrate the greatest feast of the Church year, the Resurrection of Our Lord Jesus Christ, or Easter. If this miraculous event were not also a real historical event, but merely a symbol or pious story, then Christianity would be false. St. Paul wrote to the Corinthians, “If Christ is not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain.” (I Cor. 15:14) St. Paul was absolutely certain of Our Lord’s resurrection as a true event because he saw the Risen Jesus in a vision. He also heard the testimony of many of the apostles and disciples who witnessed various appearances of the Risen Christ to different people in different places.
