“For they did not yet understand the scripture that he had to rise from the dead.” (John 20:9) On Good Friday, the impossible happened. God Himself was executed by His creatures. On Easter Sunday, this same God, our Lord Jesus Christ, rose from the dead, victorious over the power of the grave. In so doing, […]

Behold the wood of the cross, on which has hung our salvation: come let us adore (Liturgy of the Lord’s Passion). As we trod with Jesus the steps to Golgotha that draw Lent to a close, it is worthy to note that these are not the waning days of a dry, tired Lent. Instead, they […]

Jesus wanted His Apostles to spend time with Him before He died. Instead they slept. He awaits our visits to Him as He remains imprisoned in the tabernacles of His Churches, but we don’t come. How harsh we are on Judas. Yes, he betrayed our Lord. But have not we done so repeatedly as well? […]

One of my most fond memories of my semester in Rome was from our trip to Northern Italy. We visited quite a few museums and beautiful churches, yet one moment that stuck with me was our visit in Florence. After a long and beautiful Tuscan day, several of us went to a bar. Nights like […]

Fasting: A Source of Trial

Fasting: A Source of Trial

Lent is a season of prayer and fasting, a time for conversion of the heart. As in all things, the Christian looks to Christ’s example and seeks his grace to be able to follow him. To look to Christ means, first, to see and hear him in the Gospel. We will hear Jesus ask us […]

Are you Crazy? Preparing for Lent?

Are you Crazy? Preparing for Lent?

When I was a kid, preparation for Lent meant Mardi Gras. My mother was so good she always looked for fun things to do, also instructional things at the same time, which would help us both to learn and enjoy.  So, at St. Anne’s we would sometimes have candies or cupcakes on Mardi Gras.  Sometimes […]

Not a resolution was in my mind as I hopped on a plane in late December in anticipation of our newest grandson’s arrival. This was number four for mom, and she usually comes early. I wanted to give her plenty of extra buffer room so she could rest easier. Soon the evening came when I […]

Aristotle observed that all was in motion. Everything was in a process of change. Whatever stage you observed, there was always a prior movement and prior change. Aristotle realized that we could not go back like that forever. At some point we had to come to an originator of all this motion.

In reality, it was an aggressive take over. The von Trapp family did not want to stick […]
