• OK, you were right, Dad

    Now that people call me Father, I’m beginning to appreciate the trouble I made for my dad when I was young. I’m not talking about any spectacular rebellion. But, like a lot of young guys, I bristled at the idea that anyone should have authority over me.

  • Repent and Believe

    Repentance and belief: these are not two unrelated ideas. The more we indulge our sinful thoughts and desires, the more difficult it is to sustain a life of faith. We no longer see reality as it is. We become blinded by the motes and beams we’ve allowed to impair us.

  • Leading up to Lent

    Lent is a great gift of our tradition. It’s forty days when we get God’s help to change the things we most need to change. Make the most of it.

  • What are we waiting for?

    One of the symptoms of our fallen nature is an itch — a dissatisfaction with the way things are. It’s a restlessness that makes us want to move on, to do something else or go somewhere different. But our impulsive, random changes don’t fix the problem.

  • History’s restless heart

    “You have made us for yourself, O Lord, and our hearts are restless till they rest in you.” So said Saint Augustine, who was a man of many gifts, but more sins. He was at the same time a spiritual seeker and a spiritual slacker.  

     

  • How to Make It in the Movies

    Want to know how to make it to the top in show business?

    I know, I know what you’re thinking: I’m a priest! How should I know?

  • It’s about time

    “Live in the moment!” It’s useful advice. I hear it a lot when I’m worrying or over-planning. Maybe you do, too.

Loneliness and prayer

Anna Maria Scaperlanda Biddick

When I was a single adult, as for most single people, loneliness was a presence in my life.  The loneliness didn’t come on Valentine’s Day, when I showed up alone to a wedding, or when I saw an engagement on Facebook.
