Women Religious: Encouraging, Empowering, Supporting

On Sunday, after the 9 a.m. radio Mass at the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist, I hustled down to St. Patrick Church in Kankakee, Illinois for a 1 p.m. Mass celebrating the anniversary of the religious life of my former major seminary patristic teacher, fellow faculty member at St. Mary of the Lake and dear friend, Sr. Agnes Cunningham, SSCM.


The Mixed Message of a Retreat for Gay Priests in Milwaukee

I wish to briefly speak as a member of the Catholic clergy, and as someone with pastoral experience in helping men and women who experience same sex attraction, about the problematic nature of this upcoming retreat.

Throughout all the Scriptures, both the Old and the New Testaments, there is frequent mention of priests and clergy-type figures.

A Sense of Personal Dignity

I had a friend who, when we would be watching some old movies on TV together, would comment on the actors and actresses, “He’s dead,” or “She’s dead.” I don’t know if he meant it as a comment on all mortality, or as a reminder to me not to look for future films starring these individual actors.


Living A Colorful Spiritual Life

I was watching the British Open this past weekend, and remembered a comment that a member of my military unit once said about watching golf: “It’s like watching paint dry.”


CRS: Making a Difference

I am sure that you've heard the old Chinese proverb, “Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.” I am always amazed when I see this proverb in action.


Summer Travels: A Greater Understanding

I really don’t like to travel. I am a homebody, and I like the comfort of my La-Z-Boy recliner.


Praying to Protect Our Religious Freedom

This second paragraph from the Declaration of Independence defines the basis of our independence from England. Every generation that has followed must claim its contribution to the continuance of the sentiments expressed by our founding fathers.


True Tour Stoppers: Tracing the Steps of St. Paul

I’ve always enjoyed musicals. A good musical has a well-written playbook, memorable songs and creative staging.


The Art of Letter Writing

It‘s hard to imagine the journeys of St. Paul. Right now, I’m following in the footsteps of St. Paul. Of course, there is a difference.
