Mass will be in St. Joseph Chapel at 9 AM


We Do It 
For Jesus

Br. Daniel tolls the sanctuary bell during the last Mass at the Teocalli,
 for the immediate future.


The doctor did not allow me to go to the chapel to attend the Passion Service,
although I had a great desire for it; however, I prayed in my own room.

Suddenly I heard the bell in the next room,
and I went in and rendered a service to a seriously sick person.

 When I returned to my room, I suddenly saw the Lord Jesus, who said,

"My daughter, you gave Me greater pleasure by rendering Me that service

than if you had prayed for a long time."

I answered,
“But it was not to You, Jesus, but to that patient that I rendered this service.”

And the Lord answered me,
"Yes, My daughter, but whatever you do for your neighbor,

 you do for Me."

This  Sunday, May 9th

We will return to St. Joseph Chapel, Mass  will begin at 9:00 AM.

Returning to St. Joseph Chapel may feel a little confining at first after the wide open spaces of Tepeyac Hill.  But the open halfwalls allow great air circulation, and given the heat of the Texas sun, the fans and shade will be appreciated. However, those who still prefer to sit outside are welcome to do so.  We are providing several benches outside, but you can also bring a chair and set up on either side of the Chapel.  Our sound system includes outdoor speakers. 



 Keeping the Fox Out of the Henhouse

Like so many other people these days, the Brothers are trying to learn the skills of raising chickens. You may remember a photo several months ago of a box of fuzzy little yellow chicks. Unfortunately, those poor chicks didn't last too long as fox, raccoons, and probably a coyote taught the Brothers their first lesson: the absolute necessity of a strong fence.  So after building a bigger, stronger, better protected chicken-run the Brothers are trying again. It has been about six weeks, and they still have chickens.

Br. Mikael begins the evening chicken round-up.

Peter perfects his technique of backing them into a corner.

The chickens have been taught to walk the plank to reach the coop.


Fr. John Mary's Homily from Sunday, May 2

Is God Pruning You?

“He prunes so that it bears more fruit.”  Jesus’s words shed a light of hope on hard parts of our life.  And what we are experiencing in our world, and in the Church, right now.  Even when something is done by evil, our Father can use it to help us bear more fruit.  Fruit that will last forever…
