January 24 - Normally, January is a welcome pause after the craziness of Christmas shopping and then, endless partying with cookies and other belt busters. This year was a bit slower. But we should still take advantage of the relative quiet. Restore some of the peace in your heart by investing in a spiritual book rather than the TV or adopt an intense physical fitness program. Put your body and mind back in balance to enable your resiliency.

January 17 -  We are all exhausted by Breaking News and political wrangling. But as Christians, we can't stop caring, throw up our hands and say "whatever". This week has numerous memorials that highlight injustice and gaps in achieving a just society. Prejudice still flourishes as we remember the birthday of Martin Luther King. Abortions continue among the poorest and most vulnerable women as we mark the Roe v Wade decision. Divisions still separate Christian denominations as we honor years of promoting unity. There is much to do, in addition to pr...

January 10 - The vast majority of the US is believers. They accept that a Divine Power exists, created us and oversees basics of life. BUT that doesn't mean that they are Christian. After the ceremony of Baptism that our parents initiated, what did we do? If we didn't receive the Sacraments especially the Body & Blood of Jesus, who are we kidding? If we didn't serve and give to the forgotten in society, who are we trying to fool... the one who sees everything? Our baptism is the start, not the finish.

January 3 - We did it! Survived 2020 with some scars but nevertheless made it. Now let's endeavor to make 2021 truly a New Year. Much of the power is in our hands. It can be more gentle based on how we treat each other. Are our words and thoughts those of healers? Do they mirror Jesus or a political agenda? Do we walk away from gossip? Do we distance ourselves from social media which is often inaccurate? "Blessed are the peacemakers..."
