About This Blog

Hi! I’m Fr. Ron Cochran, the pastor of The Church of St. Luke in Rancho San Diego, CA.

We are a tight-knit community of individuals and families trying to be faithful disciples of the Lord, in the Roman Catholic tradition. My commitment is to help us make the Mass central to our lives, and the Liturgy of the Word is a big part of that. I pray that this blog will help people allow God to touch their hearts and souls, through the Mass, and help them grow to be, more perfectly, the person God created them to be.

The resources I most commonly use for my reflections include the notes in the New American Bible, Revised Edition, the Jerome Biblical Commentary, the Anchor Yale Bible Commentary Series and the UBS (United Bible Society) Handbook Series. Occasionally, I may use another resource and will credit those in the posts.
