Easter

Easter 2012

O God, who on this day,
through your Only Begotten Son,
have conquered death
and unlocked for us the path to eternity,
grant, we pray, that we who keep
the solemnity of the Lord’s Resurrection
may, through the renewal brought by your Spirit,
rise up in the light of life.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.

7 Quick Takes Friday

This week: The latest issue of New Evangelists Monthly awaits your perusal. Jeff Cavins reflects on Sunday’s Gospel reading (John 3:16). Do you get anything out of Mass in exchange for your time? What has God done for you lately? Fr. Mike Schmidt and Christopher Stefanick (respectively) address these questions. Venerable Fulton Sheen speaks from the past on issues of 2018. There was a time when Hollywood was faithful and loved their country (video proof). Ben Shapiro has a “heads-up” on how Hollywood indoctrinates us today for a very different end.

Why bother going to Mass – what is the point? Are you not being fed, enlightened or entertained? Fr. Mike Schmidt offers a different (and correct) viewpoint…
