Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe 2022
If we align our will to that of Jesus now, his words to the repentant thief will be directed to us as well: "You will be with me in paradise!"

The love of heaven will be as different from earthly love as chicken is from rattlesnake.

High school youth are invited to attend the 2023 Weekend for Life Jan. 21-22 at the DoubleTree Hotel in Little Rock. This overnight event focuses on right-to-life issues from a youth perspective. It is held the night before the annual Eucharistic Procession for Life and Mass for Life in Little Rock. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court's Roe v.
