I Love You Kiddo

I Love You Kiddo

It’s Father’s Day weekend, so I thought I would share something I wrote about my Dad and maybe it will resonate with you in some ways too. Some people have a hard time with the image of God as Father.  They tell me it depends on what your image of your own father is…maybe the type of family life you…

The In-Between Time

The In-Between Time

As I was listening to my priest friend’s homily for Ascension this past Sunday, he was speaking about the two feasts of Ascension and Pentecost—a week apart in our Catholic liturgy.  In our human reality we are so bound by time and space.  Perhaps that is a good thing because it gives us time to reflect and ponder how these…

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.
