Catholic Arkansas Sharing Appeal 2016  
On that day confessors will be available, the Divine Mercy Chaplet will be prayed, and information will be available about many of the works of mercy in our diocese — mostly funded through your CASA donations.
Third Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year C
Pope Francis has declared this year to be a great Jubilee Year of God's Mercy and in today's Gospel Jesus proclaims that bringing God's mercy to those in need is fundamental for his mission and thus for anyone who would follow him.
Mass for Life 2016
You and I are called to do all in our power to take the embarrassing and even frightening situation of unplanned pregnancy and turn it into a blessing, because we see what is wrong and refuse to keep silent.
Baptism of the Lord 2016
A calling is not the same thing as a career. A career is something we choose; a calling is something God chooses for us.
Epiphany of the Lord 2016
Quit worrying about what the "in crowd" thinks of you. Discover that freedom from fear that comes from seeking to do God's will rather than your own.
Mary, Mother of God 2016
Our obedience is now rooted in listening to God with an open heart, embracing in our own lives the cross of sacrificial love, confident that we will also share in his victory over sin and death.
Holy Family 2015
The only way to be a happy family is to be a holy family, a family of integrity that makes pleasing God, doing things his way, our number one priority, which is what Mary and Joseph did.
The Nativity of the Lord (Christmas) 2015
There is a path out of that darkness and today is born a Savior to show us the way. It will involve embracing the cross, like he did. It will involve personal sacrifice for the common good, doing God's will rather than our own, like he did — and it will lead to resurrection.
Fourth Sunday of Advent, Year C, 2015
Christmas is approaching, a time when families get together to share with each other. They share big things and little things, happy things and sad things.
Installation of Reader, Acolyte and Candidacy of Seminarians 2015
In every Mass, we priests offer our own self in sacrifice to the Father along with that of Jesus, declaring to the Father — at least implicitly — that we too freely embrace the death to self that faithfulness to God requires.
Third Sunday of Advent, Year C, 2015
Our doctrine of the communion of saints teaches that we support each other on the journey of faith and we are joined to Jesus and each other in the supernatural unity of the mystical body of Christ.
Second Sunday of Advent, Year C, 2015
There are three Advents because Christ is king not only of all places but also of all times: the past — Christmas, the future — the end of the world, and the present — and his coming in the present is the most important of the three.
First Sunday of Advent, Year C, 2015
If you are vigilant and pray and act, not to worry: you'll be ready for the Lord when he comes. But if you don't, watch out!
Thanksgiving 2015
We need to open our eyes and see, open our hearts and feel, open our lips and say with Jesus, "Father, I thank you." At the bottom line, that's what Thanksgiving is all about.
Solemnity of our Lord Jesus Christ the King 2015
Earthly governments come and go, but the Kingdom of God is everlasting. Earthly nations have borders, but the Kingdom of God has no limits.
