Bell chimes and chanting could be heard down 195th Street at the fourth annual St. Mary Corpus Christi Procession on Sunday, June 23rd, 2019.
Christopher West, the internationally-renowned Catholic author, speaker, and president of the Theology of the Body Institute, gave an engaging, insightful, and emotional presentation to a packed St. Mary Mokena on Wednesday, May 22.
Catholics can and should honor Mary all year round, but May is an especially fitting time to develop a devotion to her.
Why exactly did Jesus have to die, and how did His dying wash away our sins? We cannot fully appreciate Christ's tremendous sacrifice on the cross without understanding these reasons.
One of the best arguments for the Catholic Church being the one, true Christian Church is that it was the first. The Protestant Reformation happened 1,500 years later and has since spawned hundreds of offshoot churches. This is the opposite of the Catholic Church, which has, in matters of core doctrine, remained stable throughout the ages.
