While it is summer, I have been busy with the various activities that go with normal parish life. I have also been busy preparing for my presentation next week, Praying the Rosary From the Heart, on Thursday, August 25th, available via webinar at 6:30 pm (If you haven’t already registered, you can still register at […]

A Busy Week

I find myself having gone a week without posting an article here (except for the normal reflection on the Sunday readings). I haven’t written for two reasons. First, I find myself without definitive thoughts to write about. Sometimes an idea comes into my head but doesn’t coalesce into something I can write an article on […]

Three Weeks

It has been three weeks since I posted an article here that wasn’t a homily. Of course, there were several homilies in this time period. Besides the normal Sunday homilies, I posted my homilies from the Solemnity of St. Joseph, A Lenten Penance Service, Holy Thursday, and Good Friday. I love Holy Week but the […]

Seeking Your Input

If you are a regular reader of my blog, then you know that when the Coronavirus pandemic shutdown began, the number of articles I post here greatly increased.

Before I highlight a couple of ideas from the book, I want to first caution anyone who decides to read the book against thinking all atheists […]

Some Food for Thought on the 17th Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year C

At the parish where I serve, St. Luke the Evangelist, we had a missionary preaching today. So, I did not prepare a homily this week. I did sometime reflecting on the readings and offer some thoughts for you to reflect on: The gospel begins by saying, “Jesus was praying in a certain place.” How often […]

Problems with the Blog

For those who subscribe by email to this blog, you may have noticed nothing was being sent out the last couple of weeks. There were technical problems with the blog that appeared to be fixed now (the blog was completely done for the last 2 1/2 days). For those who missed my homilies for July […]

To One Who Has

The gospel for today’s (9-24-18, Monday of 25th Week in Ordinary Time) is a fairly short gospel but I would like to break it into three parts. Part One “Jesus said to the crowd:  “No one who lights a lamp conceals it with a vessel or sets it under a bed; rather, he places it on a lampstand so […]
