Pope Francis

What a blessed visit we had from our Holy Father Pope Francis! It is worth mentioning that the political categories that many Americans use to frame a consideration just don't fit when it comes to Jesus, the Christian faith or the message of Pope Francis. Let's leave behind the commentators and sit with the actual texts of what the Pope said. Very beautiful indeed! It is as if Saint Peter is still fulfilling the mandate he received from Jesus, "Strengthen the brethren" (Luke 22:32).

Bronx Press Conference

http://youtu.be/i84WZbgHjLE for the video of the press conference where NYC Mayor de Blasio and Cardinal Dolan announced a new partnership to serve the poor. Seen at our Saint Anthony Homeless Shelter in the Bronx, Fr. Herald was able to witness to the Catholic approach to serving the poor by calling to mind the example of Saint Francis.

Our Lady of Sorrows


Jesus with His mother by Michael O'Brien

Mary at the cross,
New Eve with the New Adam,
compassion with His passion.
Now our suffering has meaning
when united with Jesus.
