Feb 18-23: Weekday Reflections

Feb 18-23: Feb 18 Monday: Mk 8:11-13: The Pharisees came and began to argue with him, seeking from him a sign from heaven, to test him. 12 And he sighed deeply in his spirit, and said, “Why does this generation seek a sign? Truly, I say to you, no sign shall be given to this generation.” 13 And he left them and getting into the boat again he departed to the other side.

Feb 11-16 Weekday Homilies

Feb 11-16: Feb 11 Monday (Our Lady of Lourdes):  Mk 6:53-56: It was four years after the proclamation of the dogma of the Immaculate Conception by Blessed Pius IX (1854) that Mary appeared for the first time on February 11, 1858 to St. Bernadette Soubirous in the grotto at Massabielle, in Lourdes, France. Bernadette, a 14-year-old peasant girl was the oldest daughter among the six children of Francois Soubirous and Louise Casterot. One day she went to the rocky area to collect firewood with her sister and a friend. It was when she was left behind by the other two near a big rock that Bernadette heard a loud noise.
