  • A Faith Worthy of Belief
    on Jul 22, 2015
    Alexander Ivanov, 1835Around 36 years ago, in 1979, the telephone company AT&T rolled out what became one of the more successful advertising campaigns in history. To pitch its long-distance service, the slogan was "Reach Out and Touch Someone." I...
  • Today, Moses Would Have Missed It
    on Jul 15, 2015
    Sad to say, I suspect that if Moses were a young man today, he'd probably miss the burning bush. Not, of course, because of any lack of effort on God's part. But with so many distractions today, it's awfully difficult to be attentive to our surr...
  • The One Who Walks...
    on Jul 14, 2015
    For a few weeks there, I had established a pretty good writing rhythm. Then, last Tuesday, I caught two flights to Northern Michigan and now I'm well established in the rectory at St. Ann's Church. Indeed, I'm so well established that I even started...
  • Prophetic Virtue
    on Jul 4, 2015
    What makes a prophet distinct? For those nurtured on a steady diet of Harry Potter books, the work prophet probably evokes an image of Sybill Trelawney who prophesied the downfall of Voldemort. Those of another generation may think of Nostradamus who...
  • At the Cusp of the Summer Adventure
    on Jul 2, 2015

  • Varieties of Eucharistic Reception
    on Jun 30, 2015
    I've long wanted to blog about some of the odd behaviors people exhibit at Mass. If I were an artist, I'd try to render them in drawings and put captions underneath. Alas, my drawing skills seem to have been arrested sometime around pre-school, so I...
  • The Best Intentions...
    on Jun 29, 2015
    At least it has been my experience that, when I set out to tackle a public reading project, it withers quite quickly. Such it is with a reading of Laudato Si - I intended to use each of the mornings last week to read, consider, and publicly refl...
  • Reading Laudato Si
    on Jun 23, 2015
    Having a few days break before returning to Boston, I have the luxury of giving a slow-read to the Holy Father's encyclical Laudato Si. Without trying to give a summary of the text, I thought it might be nice to offer a few reflections on the documen...
  • First Week
    on Jun 19, 2015
    I was overjoyed to celebrate the Eucharist with the daily mass-goers at my home parish of St. Brendan in North Olmsted, Ohio. I have very fond memories of serving in the small chapel before school and it was a thrill to be there today. The congregati...
  • 10 Things to Know About Laudato Si
    on Jun 18, 2015
    This is a very well-done piece produced by America Magazine.It certainly provides a remarkable contrast to the commentary offered by Greg Gutfeld.As I mentioned yesterday, the near-allergic reaction some are having to this encyclical betrays a fundam...
