Happiness Is…

Happiness 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…

Reflection on Hope

Reflection on Hope

In these times of confusion, anxiety, and worry during the pandemic I came across this reflection today on HOPE.  As many of you know it is my word for the year 2020.  Little did I know that on January 1 when this word came to me in prayer as my word for the year, that I would so desperately need…

The Edges of Understanding

The Edges of Understanding

So many things have been happening in these past few weeks that have captured my attention and been swirling around in my mind.  Our election results were finally in, almost all of them, and Joe Biden was declared the President-Elect.  The current President has not yet conceded even though there seems no clear path to his staying on in the…

Reflecting on Vulnerability in the Pandemic

Reflecting on Vulnerability in the Pandemic

“Have faith and trust in Divine Providence; whatever happens, happens, we have God and with God we have everything”.     Mother Bernarda Morin, 1921.  This post comes from a pre-novice with the Sisters of Providence from the Emilie Gamelin group.  I thought it had some good words to reflect upon during this pandemic time.   Fabiola Reyes, SP wrote this reflection…

Cemetery Graces and Surprises

Cemetery Graces and Surprises

It’s not often that I visit a cemetery.  I’ve never really been the kind of person that goes there after the funeral and burial are over, because after all, the person isn’t really there.  Physical remains, yes, but their spirit is enjoying the face of our Provident God.  Why write about this?  Because going to the cemetery was both a…

The Duty of the Moment

The Duty of the Moment

In these more recent days I have found myself remembering a couple of lines from a Thomas Merton prayer:  “Lord I have no idea where I am going.  I do not see the road ahead of me.”  It seems at times like my own days are sometimes a blur, defined by sadness and loss of dear friends since the beginning…
