All of you are the children of God, through faith, in Christ Jesus, since every one of you that has been baptized has been clothed in Christ. There can be neither Jew nor Greek, there can be neither slave nor free, there can be neither male nor female -- for you are all one in Christ Jesus.

Galatians 3:26-28

'I am weary with holding it in'

From the National Catholic Reporter
In view of giving visibility and voice to the laity in the Catholic Church, CCRI has declared today as the beginning of a worldwide celebration of the Year of the Laity. This will go from the Feast of Christ the King, November 26, 2017, to this same feast, November 25, 2018. During this year, we envision the People of God taking on a decisive and influential voice in the governance of their Church. This will never come by a decree of the hierarchy but only by the People assuming this responsibility. Once accustomed to this new role, it is our hope that lay people, by virtue of their baptism, will recognize their responsibility to heed the signs of the times and continue to lead the Church in the direction intended by Jesus Christ.

Meditation on 9 phases of progressive enlightenment. Reflections on a Thangka painting portraying stages according to Mahamudra Practice
Hello everyone, In our gathering yesterday at MoM's Centering Prayer group, we spent some time gazing upon, meditating and praying with icons. I sensed a deepening and connection in this practice with most members there. One new member who hadn't centered before (we did have a centering prayer sit) discussed some difficulty in centering as one works with formlessness, esp. how to handled busy mind and thoughts/questions arising during prayer. We discussed the Buddhist notion of the 'monkey mind.' A part of that "monkey mind" teaching comes from a Buddhist Mahamudra Thangka (like an icon) from the East. Catherine, who was in attendance yesterday, requested the link the youtube video which describes successive paths to enlightens and inner unity..... Ronald Mendyke

Thank you for visiting our website.


We invite you to join us to share in the joy, peace, friendship, healing and love that God's Word, communion and Spirit provide.  We see ourselves as a spiritual refugee camp for the many disenfranchised, disillusioned and dishonored faithful Catholics who want to live their faith true to the vision of the Vatican II Council.

How to Make Your Voice Heard In Congress.
Take a look at this information.

(Posted 2/8/2018)

Dear Community,


We will hear this Sunday about a person, healed of leprosy by Jesus, who disobeys Jesus and spreads the word about him. The result of that single act turns Jesus into the equivalent of a first-century rock star.

To steal from a parable from Matthew, the one who was healed became yeast impacting nourishment.

Come on Sunday -- be yeast spreading the word. In body and/or in spirit we gather at 9:45am. See ya.

​Readings: 1) Leviticus 13:1-2,44-46; 2) 1 Corinthians 10:31-11:1; 3) Mark 1:40-45.

Take care,


PS. Remember our Ash Wednesday Service, February 14, 7PM with our host congregation - Wauwatosa Area United Methodist Church. I will be preaching this year - suggestions are welcome!​
