Living the Good News

Diocesan Publications exists to share the Good News. We serve those who serve: the parishes, parish staffs, the faith communities.

As a Catholic communications company, we take our commitment to the Gospel seriously. We also take the means of sharing the Gospel seriously, whether that’s in a church bulletin, on social media, or person-to-person. It’s important to us that we are faithful, accurate and creative, regardless of how we are sharing God’s Word.

One new way we have of doing this is our recently-launched blog, Living the Good News. It offers short reflections on the Catholic faith, the liturgical year, Scripture, Saints … all the things you know and love (or want to learn!) about the Universal Church.

We’d welcome the opportunity to share these short blog posts with you: simply sign up, via email. We don’t share your email with any other organization or company. It’s also a great way to share the faith with family and friends – simply forward the email and let them know about our blog.

Let us go and share the Good News of Jesus Christ!

St Rita: Teacher of Forgiveness

Click here for daily readings “Let me, my Jesus share in Thy suffering, at least one of Thy thorns.” – Saint Rita of Cascia Jesus’ words in today’s gospel seem near impossible for any regular man to act. He tells us to love our enemies, stop judging, be merciful; we are still sinful and fallen.

Our Father

Click here for daily readings For the past week, and up until just a couple days before Pentecost, the Gospel readings for daily Mass are from John’s recounting of the Last Supper. Here Jesus repeatedly speaks about, and prays to, “the Father.” I want to step back and reflect on that for a minute. God

Life’s Experiences Teach Us To Live

Click here for daily readings As I worked on processing bulletins this past week, I noticed how many churches had chosen one of our covers illustrating a trifecta of celebrations. World Day of Prayer for Vocations, Good Shepherd Sunday and Mother’s day all fell on the same day this year (not to mention the 4th

Love One Another
