Thought for the Day
Prepare the Sunday Readings with Cardinal Tagle
Cardinal Tagle from the Philippines has a TV show in the Philippines every Sunday morning in which he explains the Sunday readings. It is also found on Utube. We will start presenting on the parish home page the Utube videos of explanation of the readings. Not everyone can go to the Bible Study of the Sunday readings, but more can prepare the readings using these excellent videos from the Cardinal. Click here for a text of the readings. These are also found on the Parish Facebook page.
