Breaking Open the Scriptures

Missions are, I think, places more than events, places where God opens doors in peoples’ hearts and minds, places where the Holy Spirit is allowed to break into our lives, places where people get to meet Jesus again, and allow Him to change lives.

Talking With God

I love the way St. Alphonsus said in his first draft of the Rule, the constitutions by which Redemptorists live, that the purpose of the Redemptorist community is "to continue Christ." Not to imitate him. To continue Christ.

Echoing God: My Vocation as a Catechist

As a catechist, I represent the community of faith. I draw strength from being a member of this community constantly. I also offer to this community of faith my presence, my time, my gifts and talents, my skills, my education and my love.

Joy in Small Things: Fr. Ray Corriveau, CSsR

Father Ray taught me and guided me to become a fuller person and a better person of the Gospel. I miss him every day. But mostly, I am grateful every day that I knew such a man, and that he walked with me. He continues to walk with me, I know.

Harmony in All Things: Sr. Kathrine Bellamy, RSM

Have you ever met somebody who you would follow to the ends of the earth and back? Sr. Kathrine was just such a person. She was a gifted music teacher, and for me, watching her was the best education I could ever have had about how to become a good teacher.

Gifts of the Holy Spirit: Judgment

Anne Walsh speaks about right judgment as one of the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit. Right Judgment is a kind of sanctified "common sense" helping us to make decisions that are informed by God.

Gifts of the Holy Spirit: Understanding

Anne Walsh speaks about understanding as one of the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit. We become understanding by seeking to understand, not the way things work, but where God is in the midst of it all.

Gifts of the Holy Spirit: Wisdom

Anne Walsh speaks about wisdom as one of the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit. Wisdom is young, and fun-loving, playful, delighting God with her curiosity and the wonder with which she receives and beholds God's work.

Gifts of the Holy Spirit: Wonder and Awe

Anne Walsh speaks about wonder and awe as one of the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit. Wonder and Awe is the only fitting response of us human beings in the fact of an encounter with a God who is very close and still absolute mystery.

Family & Forgiveness

God is mercy. There is nothing that God cannot forgive. There is nothing
that you or I cannot forgive as well. The best picture that we have of this
kind of love and forgiveness is parents, who cannot imagine not forgiving a child for a wrong.

People of Blessing

If we look around us, or dig a little bit into our past, I think we will
discover that we can be people of blessing today because we have been
blessed by people in our past. These would be people who took us on, kind of like apprentices in the Christian life.

Dear Great-Grandmother

I think that I'm a bit like you there, as well, Anne. I take the people with
and among whom I minister close to my heart. I mother them. I try to nurture them, and nothing makes me happier than to see them succeed and thrive. I grieve when they suffer loss. Like your love for those boys, I think mine mirrors the love of Jesus.

You've Got To Try A Little Kindness

There is a song that I learned in those first few months of guitar playing that's stuck with me through all the years. Its' lines often come back to haunt me, most often when I'm tempted to be judgmental or harsh, to turn away from someone in need of help, or to offer words of criticism without words of praise or love. The song is called "You've Got to try a Little Kindness."

Breakfast on the Shore

What Jesus invites you to do may be a very simple thing. You may have
opportunity to invite your neighbours in for a cup of coffee and share your
faith with them, or you might give a word of comfort or encouragement that means very little to you, but means the world to another.

Charity at Home

Haven't you welcomed into your home one of your childrens' friends, someone who had no home to go to, no bed to sleep in, or no Christmas dinner to share with family? And you probably said, "Sure, anyone would do the same." Yes, anyone who had the heart of mercy that Jesus has.

Cure of the Paralytic

Today, as two thousand years ago, friends bring other friends to Jesus.
Unlike the friends in this Gospel story, our friends don't necessarily bring us physically, in a bed. But our friends do, most certainly, carry us to Jesus.

A Mother's Pondering

Today, let's give thanks for the gifts of Mary, our mothers, and for those
who have been like mothers for us. With them, we ponder the great works of God in our lives, and ask God's guidance and blessing on the path ahead.
