Sunday Homilies

Feast of the Holy Family

The celebration of the Holy Family is the Sunday after Christmas and is one that puts the birth of Jesus into an important context for us. When God sent his Son he did not mysteriously appear out of nowhere, nor did he drop down to earth from Heaven. Jesus is the second person of the […]

Joanne Rogers was a frequent visitor to the Fred Rogers Center at Saint Vincent College, as well as to events on campus, from Pittsburgh Steelers Training Camp to concerts to interactions with students, to the Yo-Yo Ma Fred Rogers Legacy Award presentation. A select sampling of photos from her many visits include pictures with Yo-Yo Ma, David Hartman, James Ragan, Art Rooney, LeVar Burton, to Fred's biographer Maxwell King, as well as when she received an honorary doctorate from Saint Vincent from then college President Martin Bartel, O.S.B., now the 12th Archabbot of Saint Vincent, to her friendship with the 11th Archabbot, Douglas Nowicki, O.S.B. Other concerts she attended included those of André Watts, Manfred Honeck and the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, organist Alan Morrison, son of her dear friend Jeannine Morrison, with whom she was a frequent duo-piano partner. Her spirit was evident in her robust laugh, and her joie de vivre. Fred will be glad to see her. To read Saint Vincent's statement on her passing on January 14, 2021, please visit this link:

Gospel – Mark 1:7-11

The Baptism of the Lord marks the end of the Christmas Season. In a few short weeks we have gone from the baby in the manger to the thirty-year-old Jesus preparing to begin his ministry. This Baptism of Jesus by John was not Baptism as we understand it as a Sacrament of Initiation that takes away Original Sin and makes us members of God’s family.

With the best of wheat he fills us. We are so well fed all along the journey to the heavenly Jerusalem with the Bread of Heaven. We glorify the LORD, we who are the New Jerusalem, his bride, his beloved. He has strengthened the bars of our gates and blessed the children among us.

1Jn 4:19–5:4; Ps 72:1-2,14,15,17; Lk 4:14-22

Who doesn’t experience some kind of fraud and violence. Actually, fraud is a kind violence because it violates a person’s mind. When someone is a fraud that person deliberately tries to deceive others about his true identity. Fraud then is mental violence. The LORD comes to rescue his people from all such violence. He comes to redeem us.
