My “Incredible Hulk” Easter homily from this morning. ;-)

He is risen, Alleluia!

She who was all loveliness… is today all loneliness.

Now We Know Why He Is Pope

"Said to be in the habit of waking before 5am, Papa Bergoglio starts his day with some two hours of quiet reflection before Mass."

To read Sacred Scripture means to turn to Christ for advice.

— Saint Francis of Assisi (1182-1226)

Remember when you used to be able to scroll through all the #catholic posts from a given day on Tumblr in less than a minute?

When I was traveling a few months back, I missed several Sunday Masses as I had no way to get to get them during my travels. Feeling a bit guilty, upon my return, went to Confession and was told by the priest I did commit a sin as he felt I should've made more of an effort to locate a church + get there. I was absolved and given penance. If I find myself in a situation like this again or anticipating it, what should I do ahead of time and on Sunday? - Anonymous!

There are a few apps for that, but I’ve always had the most luck with the website.

May God bless you abundantly!

I hope the conclave will not go on too long. All I know is that I’m just taking in a small “carry-on” piece of baggage. If we’re in there too long, and if they show photographs of St. Martha’s from outside Vatican City, my room will be the one with the laundry hanging in the window to dry!

— Cardinal Timothy Dolan (this morning)
