The Backdrop Of Nature as Classroom For Instruction

Today’s Gospel from Mark recalls Jesus walking through a field of grain with his disciples. How often did Jesus utilize the surrounding beauty of creation to be the backdrop, the ‘classroom’ for instructing the disciples? He used references to creation often to refer to God and the wisdom of God’s ways. Friday last week, the mother of one of our priests died.  Saturday morning, another mother of another priest died, this one from the Philippines.  Some day, someone should write a book about the mothers of priests, but I’ll save that topic for another blog […]

Glory & Salvation Radiate From Christ’s Holy Face

Merry Christmas! As a people of faith, as God’s family, we come together this holy night to celebrate once again God’s love and mercy, the gift of our salvation in the birth of his Son, Jesus. Christmas is the ultimate celebration of our belief in God and the reality that our God is not distant! Jesus is the flesh of God, born upon the earth. Jesus is the mercy of God expressed in every human person’s hour of need. Jesus is the humility of God, who created the heavens and the earth and all within […]

Morning Interfaith Prayer Service @ St. Mary’s Cathedral In Cheyenne To Kickoff Legislative Session, 2015

This morning, we celebrated what appears to be an historical event at St. Mary’s Cathedral in Cheyenne. The 2015 legislative session begins today in Wyoming, and for several years I have been wanting to bring together faith and government leaders to pray for the work of our legislators.  Today, that dream came to life.  We were blessed with a great representation of all three branches of government, including Governor Mead. Also making a strong showing were state-wide faith leaders from the majority of faith communities.  Present were Rabbi Larry Moldo, from the Mt. Sinai congregation in […]

Christ Our Rock

Today’s first reading from Isaiah (26:4) tells us that the Lord is an eternal Rock!  Jesus in the Gospel today tells us that unless we fulfill the Father’s will, we shall not enter into the Kingdom of God.  He then goes on to give us a beautiful image of living out the Father’s Will. “Everyone who listens to these words of mine and acts on them will be like a wise man who built his house on rock.  The rain fell, the floods came, and the winds blew and buffeted the house.  But it did […]

You Are Worth More Than Many Sparrows

 Today the Church celebrates the memorial of Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha, the first Native American to be declared Blessed.  In the reading selection for today, Jesus reminds His Apostles not to fear those who can kill the body, but rather, to fear the One who can destroy both body and soul.  And so that we His Apostles would not be intimidated by such instruction, He then speaks immediately to the great love God holds for each of us.  Are not two sparrow sold for a small coin?  Yet not one of them falls to the ground […]

O Wisdom…

Wisdom, O holy Word of God, you govern all creation with your strong yet tender care.  Come and show your people the way to salvation. Today, December 17 begins the final march of the Advent Season towards Christmas, and the use of the “O Antiphons” in the daily Gospel acclamation and Evening Prayer Gospel Antiphon for the Canticle of Mary.  Each of the “titles” in these antiphons are titles for Christ. In Christ, we see the heart of our human dignity, as it is through Christ, we find our blessing.  For it is in Christ, […]
