Epiphany! Revelation! Celebration!: A Reflection                          
By Fr. Peter Clarke, OP
​Coming! Coming! Coming!......Come!.....Gone! This describes the huge, even extravagant, build-up to Christmas, it's brief but joyful celebration, and then it's all over.

The Holy Family: A Reflection By Fr. Michael Barrow, SJ

The Holy Family: A Reflection By Fr. Michael Barrow, SJ
