Journeying with St. Joseph

Journey with St. Joseph we are learning to use the spiritual tools of this master craftsman and faithful steward entrusted with the care of the Holy Family.

HOMILIES

Hear good news for everyday lives told through stories that may bring a smile or a tear but always touch the heart.
Journey with St. Joseph – Week I

Our Lenten Theme begins with a story about the once struggling French author Balzac who became a success by overcoming temptation by literally drawing a dream and vision for his life. Dreaming and receiving a vision from God through prayer helps us to overcome temptation and empowers us to provide for the good of others. Jesus, St. Joseph and the Holy Family inspire us in this homily to be Prayers, Dreamers and Providers.

Journey with St. Joseph – Week II

Our Lenten Theme continues as we juggle the numbers from 1 to 10 discovering that 9 may hold a secret that reveals how we grow in holiness by turning toward God in prayer. The Transfiguration of Jesus inspires us to be transformed into the image and likeness of Christ. Through the intercession of quiet St. Joseph, we learn to still ourselves and center our prayer in a restful way.
