(Romereports.com)During his homily at Casa Santa Marta, Pope Francis called on Catholics to forgive others as Jesus forgives. He said that forgiveness is a strength that Jesus gives through prayer.
"We can only pray well, and call God ‘Father’ if our heart is at peace with others, with our brothers. ‘But father, this person did this to me, and this person did this to me, and that person did this…’ ‘Forgive. Forgive as He forgave you.’ And so the weakness that we have, with the help of God in prayer becomes strength because forgiveness is a great strength. One needs to be strong to forgive, but this strength is a grace that we must receive from the Lord because we are weak.”
Congratulations to Colton and Leah Duhr, who were married at St. Mark the Evangelist Catholic Church on June 6th, 2015. May God bless them each day of their married life with a love like that of Christ for His Church.

To truly understand the significance of the Mass, we must understand the importance of blood sacrifice to Judaism in Jesus' time. On Yom Kippur, the high priest would enter the Holy of Holies and sacrifice a goat, upon which he would symbolically place the sins of the people, and a sheep. The blood would then be sprinkled around the sacred space and over the people. Jesus offering his body and blood at the Last Supper was a deliberate extension-fulfillment-of this offering. He was the sacrificial lamb, the scapegoat, upon which the temple is rebuilt-upon which reconciliation is offered.
Mark your calendars for Totus Tuus coming to St. Mark’s this summer from July 19th - July 24th for Grades 1 through High School. Grades 1-6 will meet Monday-Friday from 9 am to 3 pm and grades 7 through 12 will meet Sunday-Thursday from 7:30-9:45 pm. More details will be coming.
(Romereports.com)Pope Francis talked about wealth. He said that when a person is attached to material riches, life becomes sad and selfish. He said it slowly chips away at hope and it opens the door towards corruption, both big and small.
"The attachment to riches is the beginning of all kinds of corruption, in all aspects: personal corruption, corruption in business, even small commercial bribery, the kind that shortchanges you at the counter, political corruption, corruption in education ... Why? Because those who live attached to their own power and their own wealth, they believe they’re in heaven.”
