  • A deacon’s journey to priestly ordination
    My journey to priestly ordination, when I look back at my life, was the farthest thing from my mind. I have been a deacon for the past 26 years and love every aspect of my ministry. But as I look back in time, I believe it all started about four months after the passing of my wife, Peggy.
  • Construct no wall around sacred space
    Images of endless war, overflowing refugee camps, hate-filled terrorists, billion-dollar weapons, starved children — I want to flee this world’s violence.  
  • Trusting that God is in charge
    ‘As we face the issues of the coming year, ranging from the treatment of immigrants and refugees to respect for life, ­­improved healthcare for all, or working conditions for farm workers, we continue to hope. That hope sustains us.’
  • Balancing ‘twin vocations’ on journey to religious life
    “Trust in the s-l-o-w work of God.” Those are the first words that come to my heart as I reflect on my vocation journey.  
  • ‘And a voice came from heaven, 
    “You are my beloved Son;
    with you I am well pleased.”’ — Luke 3:22
