Homily The Lord tells us to seek him while he may be found. Receive his mercy in your life now.
Homily Always remain grateful for the gift of mercy.
Homily This is a time to rise to the occasion.
Homily When others become our number one priority and God loses his position, we head in the wrong direction. We lose our way.

CNA Staff, Sep 19, 2020 / 04:56 pm (CNA).- The Chinese government continues to imprison Catholic clergy – including bishops – who refuse to support the Communist Party, according to a new report out of the province of Jiangxi.
According to UCA News, priests in the Diocese of Yujiang who refuse to join the Chinese Patriotic Catholic Association have been placed under house arrest as of September 1. These priests have been forbidden from “engaging in any religious activity in the capacity of clergy” as part of their punishment.
For decades, the Church in China had been split between the “underground” Church, in full communion with Rome, and the state-run Chinese Patriotic Catholic Association (CPCA), which was not. The communist government appointed bishops for the CPCA.
