LENT Approaches: Seek First The Kingdom Of Heaven

As we approach this Lenten season, we are reminded once again to seek the LORD in all things. It is a time to put Jesus squarely at the center of life – above every other thing. Since the Beatitudes represent a summary of Jesus’ person and teaching, perhaps a Lenten Fast based upon the Beatitudes would be helpful. In this powerful homily of Jesus, we hear about the ways of life that lead to ‘blessings’. Lent is a time to humbly reflect at a deep and profound level where we are in need of conversion […]

Christ Our Life And Our Peace

In today’s Gospel (John 14: 27-31) Jesus prepares his disciples for his passion and death.  For the final time, he instructs them that he will be leaving them, but only to return.  He reassures them that even though the ‘ruler of the world is coming,’ he has no power over Jesus. Then Jesus says an interesting thing: He (the ruler of the world) has no power over me, but the world must know that I love the Father and that I do just as the Father has commanded me. (John 14: 30-31) Even though the […]

Spring Travels and HHS Hearing in Federal Court

Mercifully, (so far!) spring travels around the state have been successful. Last year, spring snows made it difficult, and at times, impossible to keep scheduled appointments and confirmation celebrations. In the past five days, I’ve logged 1,300 miles to attend the K of C state convention in Jackson, celebrate Confirmations in Jackson and Rock Springs, with a brief stop and visit in Pinedale, returned to Cheyenne for some meetings, drove to Casper for another meeting and a very important engagement yesterday afternoon in Federal Court for a hearing in which the Diocese of Cheyenne along with five […]

Easter Triduum

My dear friends, today we prepare to enter the Sacred Triduum. I wish to encourage all of this readership to make sure you know what the liturgical schedule is for your parish these next three days; Holy Thursday, Good Friday and the Great Easter Vigil. Our presence and full participation at these liturgies is critical. Every Christian has a vital role to play in the life of the Church and from there in the world to further God’s Kingdom. We can only accomplish our God-given role when we are walking as disciples with Christ.  The […]

A Good Start

Our Year of Faith is off to a good start. Around 400 people, including 80 – 100 youth celebrated well in Lander last Saturday. Yesterday an estimated 700 people including 120 youth continued the celebration at St. Patrick in Casper.  Both events enjoyed the blessing of weather which allowed for safe travel and the beauty of the fall season. I am edified to see in each of these events the great number of people seeking the Sacrament of Reconciliation prior to Mass.  For an hour, most of the priests who gathered were kept busy with […]

Thursday Night Life; May Edition

Admittedly, my camera skills need work. Sorry this one is a bit blurry, but I do not ask people to pose, so the movement is not welcome by my camera. This month, our Young Adults gathered at Holy Trinity in Cheyenne.  Following adoration, the group moved across the parking lot to a fire pit to enjoy the outdoor weather and some fellowship…of course, pizza just arrived as well! For the Scripture reflection, we chose this past Sunday’s Gospel from John (15): “I am the vine you are the branches.  Remain in me as I remain […]

The Call We Have Received

This week’s first readings are taken from St. Paul’s Letter to the Ephesians.  This is undoubtedly one of my favorites of Paul’s epistles.  I chose my own episcopal motto from this epistle:  Ephesians 4:15:  Rather, living the truth in love, we should grow in every way into him who is the head, Christ.   We will hear this passage tomorrow morning. If we had a goal of reading some of St. Paul’s epistles every day, we would have a great reminder of the life that is ours in Jesus Christ, and the power and grace that flow from […]
