Mary Magdalene-an Icon of Providence?

Mary Magdalene-an Icon of Providence?

During Eastertide we often hear about the importance of Mary Magdalene as being the first disciple to witness the resurrection.  My friend, Fr. Terry Moran, had this perspective to share on the gospel account so familiar to us.  I just wanted to share it with all of you. The gospel sounds like Jesus adopted social distancing before its time.  The…

My Anam Cara

My Anam Cara

Many years ago I read the book, Anam Cara, by John O’Donohue.  I was so delighted to actually meet him at a conference that my then employer, the Catholic Association, was holding.  What a beautiful soul and so easy to have a conversation with over dinner.  He died much too young, at 52 but many of his writings are enjoyed…

Lessons Learned

Lessons Learned

Have you ever made a really stupid mistake?  The kind where you look back and to yourself say: “how could I have done that” or “why didn’t that dawn on me?”  Making mistakes is how we humans learn though.  Case in point:  The salt and pepper shakers in the kitchen I use for cooking had a slight flaw.  My former…

Ash Wednesday Thoughts

Ash Wednesday Thoughts

Lent begins early this year.  It seems we have just put away the tree, the ornaments, and the wrapping paper and already it’s time to receive ashes on our foreheads!  We come once again to this sacred, earthy season of Lent, where we remember that it is from dust and earth from which we emerge and one day we shall…

Be Astonished

Be Astonished

The following excerpt is from Leslie Keener, CDP, who graciously let me share it with all of you in the WPC blog posts.  I think being astonished in these challenging times is a good thing upon which to reflect.  I hope you enjoy pondering it as much as I did. “When I read a story about Jesus, my attention is…

On this Sunday we celebrate the feast of the Baptism of the Lord and the end to the Christmas season.  “And a voice came from heaven, ‘You are my beloved Son; with you I am well pleased.”’ (Luke 3:22) Recently on the radio I heard a talk host asking what keeps us happy and healthy in this journey we call…

Love: Sing its Melody

Love: Sing its Melody

Much has been written about these challenging days of 2020.  It will no doubt be remembered as the year when the world was brought to its knees; when in some ways, darkness overshadowed the earth.  Some might even say when the world stood still.  Our lives were certainly changed.  A global pandemic was upon us.  We were scared.  We were…

If Only

If Only

“If only” is one of the saddest expressions in the English language, expressing the mind’s regret, says Angel Chernoff.  “It is the lament of a broken heart over an opportunity lost, the moaning of a soul now aware of what could have been.”  “If only.”  A priest friend used this in a recent homily and it started me thinking.  Thanks…
