    You have an informative site but I cannot access the various segments of your articles. I am interested in commentary on the readings and Gospel for the upcoming Sunday as I prepare for the Men of St. Joseph meeting on Tuesday. It is not clear on how to access the information.

      I don’t know what you mean by not being able to access the articles. Are the links not working for you?
