This afternoon I had the pleasure of discussing Sunday’s readings with Sr. Marie Pappas, a Resurrection Sister and one of the assistant superintendents of schools for the Archdiocese of New York. Sr. Marie has her own show on The Catholic Channel, “Pathways of Learning,” which airs Tuesdays at 1:00 PM. Listen below to hear Sr. Marie share her insights into this weekend’s readings, as well as tell the story of her congregation’s foundation. As she explains, the Sisters of the Resurrection remains the only congregation in the Church co-founded by a mother and daughter.
I also spoke with Fr. Pius Pietrzyk, OP, from the Church of St. Thomas Aquinas in Zanesville, OH. Fr. Pius shared with us the main points of his Sunday homily, which include this gem: loving neighbor and making ourselves lovable for neighbor are two sides of the same coin. In both cases, love is given on our neighbor’s terms, not ours.
Listen and enjoy!
