When you are tired and lack patience, God desires you to be patient with someone that tries your patience in your life.
Well God, here we go again: the beginning of another ministry year. Freshmen are imploding at Life Night with a mixture of energy and nerves. Seniors already are suffering from senioritis. Veteran Core is setting the most excellent example by showing up late for the excited new Core Members. And […]
So, I might have reached Olympic exhaustion by sitting on my couch every single night the past two weeks. It is difficult work to sit, watch, and cheer on athletes who have trained tirelessly for their entire lives. It’s my American duty to cheer on my country, and I have […]
I don’t know about you, but I am so excited for the Olympics! Although I love to watch the Luge competitions during the Winter Olympics, nothing beats beach volleyball, soccer, archery, swimming, and gymnastics. Watching all the countries enter with flags raised high displaying the world’s greatest athletes takes […]
I love the boldness of Abraham in the first reading today (Genesis 18:20-32). His negotiation skills are on point. But what impresses me the most is his persistence and how he relentlessly seeks justice from God when he says, “Let not my Lord grow impatient if I go on. What […]
“I will follow you, Lord, but first let me say farewell to my family at home.” Luke 9:61 I still remember the call. I was being offered my dream job in Arizona, and I hesitated. I hesitated because it meant leaving my family, financial security, ministry, and friends. I still […]
Saturday night I went to vigil Mass and absorbed the readings and Gospel. I paid close attention to the judgment and disgust the Pharisees had for the “sinful woman” and the mercy and forgiveness Jesus showers on her. I was shocked at the courage this woman had to enter a […]
Whenever I read the Gospel of the Loaves and Fishes (Luke 9:11-17), I wish I could’ve been one of the more than 5,000 people in the crowd. Being “vertically challenged” myself, I’m not sure what I would’ve seen or heard. This wasn’t a concert. Jesus wasn’t projected on a large […]
In my life, I have been blessed to attend a few ordinations, and I have to say, an ordination is hands down my favorite sacrament to witness. I know, I should say it’s a wedding or a baby’s baptism, but they just don’t compare. Witnessing men willingly lie prostrate on a […]
A few years ago, I traveled to Philadelphia for a Theology of the Body course taught by Christopher West. I was both excited and nervous and found myself in a ministry setting where I knew no one, which is a bit strange for me. After the introduction session, I moved […]
