Mary would never see the world in the same way again because she had conceived beneath her heart, The Word, the Son of God made flesh within her. The Word from the mind of God now in her being…She would now have to see everything through the eyes of that Word and everything would change. “Nothing would again be causal and small, but everything with light invested,” (J. Duffy, “The Annunciation”). Christ, the Light of the World.
That’s what happens when we come to know Christ, to possess Christ, to bring Christ into our very being, flesh of our flesh, blood of our blood. When our heart beats with Christ’s heart we see the whole world differently. We look into the womb of every mother and see the image of the Son of God.

Yesterday, May 3rd,
marked the 10th Anniversary of the entrance into eternal life of John Cardinal
Many of you were able to be present -and others were present through
EWTN–and shared prayer with us for the Cardinal’s eternal peace and God’s
mercy. In case you want see the video coverage, you may watch it here and
I suspect that EWTN will run the program again.
At the end of the Mass,
Archbishop Timothy Dolan launched and introduced a new effort of the Knights of
Columbus and the Sisters of Life called the National Prayer for Life
Please join us in praying this
prayer every day and give it to others; all of us are hoping that it spreads
throughout our nation so that a Culture of Life may be fully restored!

Philip, he who sees Me, sees also the Father, alleluia.
O God, who makes us glad by the yearly festival of Thine Apostles Philip and James, grant we beseech Thee, that we who rejoice in their merits may be taught by their example.
Today, we also remember the soul of John Joseph Cardinal O’Connor, PhD, archbishop of New York, 1984-2000. He died 10 years ago today.
O God, Who was pleased to raise Thy servant John Joseph O’Connor to the dignity of the episcopate; we beseech Thee, vouchsafe to admit him to the communion of Thy bishops forevermore.
