Made For Mission

January 11, 2022

My best conversations happen unexpectedly in grocery store aisles. The most recent occurred at The Big Y, right here in town, next to the leg of lamb. I ran into my friend Diane who I had not seen in a while. She had come straight from confession where she had the most incredible encounter. Not […]

Reality Frees Us From Ourselves

December 14, 2021

It’s Advent. My favorite time of year. Every morning in December, I get to wake up before the entire house and pray by a Christmas tree. It’s glorious. For four weeks, I get to meditate on the mystery of God becoming man, and I love it. I love it because I love God, I love […]

Do You Want Your Life To Change?

December 7, 2021

Do you want your life to change? This was the question that Dynamic Catholic Founder, Matthew Kelly, posed to a packed church parish hall ten years ago. I can’t speak for the other attendees’ responses at the retreat that day, but I can share mine. It was a solid yes. The solution Kelly offered wasn’t […]

What if He Is Already Pleased With You?

November 9, 2021

Above my bed hangs a couple of one hundred-year-old pictures: one of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the other of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. I love them. I love that they hung on someone’s wall going back to the early 1900s. I love how they remind me that the Catholic Church spans across […]

Remember You Must Die

November 2, 2021

I like to think about my death. How’s that for an opening line? I am not a morbid person. I am not depressed, nor do I want to die. I just know that I will. And so I think about it; the Requiem Mass, followed by a street taco and margarita celebration. I’m even thinking […]

So tell me what you want, what you really really want

October 19, 2021

Now that you have that piece of '90s ear candy stuck in your head...what DO you want? What are you longing for? What precious desire of your heart has not been met yet? That’s a sacred space, I know (unlike the space song lyrics from 30 years ago take up in our heads), but I […]

There’s No Escape

October 5, 2021

If God were real, why would He allow so many horrible things to happen? If God really loved us, why wouldn’t He just step in and fix everything? Have you been asked these questions before? Have you ever asked them yourself? There’s no shame if you’ve questioned His goodness. Lord knows I have. As I […]

Become an Enemy of Pettiness

September 14, 2021

Confession: I’ve been one of those rare Catholics that does not have a deep devotion to Mary. There, I said it. I wasn’t planning to admit this in my first blog after three months away, but here it is. I hope you can forgive me.  Don’t get me wrong. I think she is great. I […]

Which Side Are You On?

September 7, 2021

Which side are you on? A dangerous question to ask in this space, don’t you think? Don’t worry. This post is not about politics or the pandemic. It’s about Christ. And that’s why we are here, right? In fact, politics and the pandemic are my least favorite things to talk about. This has nothing to […]

Give God the First Five Minutes

August 10, 2021

What does it mean to live the good life? How can I be happy? What choices will get me there? How we answer these questions has everything to do with the voices we choose to listen to. A life is formed through many small, seemingly insignificant decisions. Bit by bit, we become the result of […]
