• The Gospel of the family

    It’s amazing that in our sophisticated, secularized world, global attention has focused on a meeting of Catholic bishops with the Pope in Rome these past two weeks.

  • Heaven is for real and forever

    God’s ways are not our ways, and his will is not always easy for us to understand.

  • Priestly joy is a missionary joy

    It’s a beautiful sight to see — hundreds of priests, happy and relaxed, laughing and just enjoying their time together. It is beautiful to see. And it can get pretty loud, too!

  • A love that embraces every life

    This Sunday, bishops from around the world will gather in Rome with Pope Francis for an Oct. 5-19 synod that will examine marriage and the family.

  • Remembering our ‘historia’

    Every people has a story they tell about their beginnings. A story about where they came from and how they got here. A story that helps them make sense of their identity, of who they are as a people.

  • Growing in our knowledge of Jesus Christ

    It’s back-to-school time, a great time of year.

    I know many of you have been getting ready for the new school year with your kids and grandchildren. All of the archdiocese, confirmation and religious education programs are starting up again in our parishes.

  • Forming men of mission and men of mercy

    Editor’s note: This column is adapted from the Archbishop’s homily to for the opening Mass of the new academic year at St. John’s Seminary, Sept. 3, 2014. The Archbishop was reflecting on 1 Cor. 3:1–9 and Luke 4:38–44.

  • The beautiful truth about marriage and family

    In my recent columns for The Tidings and AngelusNews.com, I’ve been reflecting about marriage and the family, trying to help us pray and prepare for the important Synod of Bishops that will begin in just a few weeks. 

  • What is the family’s value in our society?

    We need to put the family first again in our society.

  • God’s magnificent plan for the family

    As the summer winds down and we move into fall, we need to turn our prayers and reflection to the meeting of the world’s bishops that Pope Francis has called for October 5-19 in Rome.

Back in New England, my brother Geordie’s been a commercial fisherman for more than 30 years. He developed his passion for boats as a kid, out fishing and pulling lobster traps with my father.
