  • Slow down, make Christmas simple with the gift of Jesus

    Well it’s that time of year again; the season of our Savior’s birth. Christmas is a time of shopping, parties, plays and dinners with family and friends. Wow! What a busy season!

    I don’t know about you, but sometimes I come out of Christmas worn out. Is it possible that in all the busyness during this time, we’ve developed a rushed and complex approach to Christmas? It’s possible that in our push to do all that we do, we find ourselves not only exhausted, but also somewhat empty on the inside.

  • Brothers live together in harmony in monastery

    I am writing this article from Cuernavaca, Mexico. I am doing an intensive Spanish course to help the Hispanic community at St. John Catholic Church.
    I am sure all will be glad to know about the life and culture in Mexico. I would like to share my experience with you. When I first started planning my Spanish study I had several options for accommodation. I asked my teacher to find a place close to a church so that I may be able to celebrate Mass every day. My teacher Esperanza, contacted the Benedictine Monks in Cuernavaca and they graciously accepted her request.

  • Church: Why bother? How to address this with teens

    A few weeks ago my youngest daughter came home for a quick visit on her way to a wedding and a football game.
    At 27, she has long outgrown her terrible teen years, although she still has a bit of an edge. That’s just Laura.
    When she was 14 or 15 she was into a grunge stage, very Kurt Cobain-Pearl Jam-Stone Temple Pilots. She’d wear pants big enough to fit two sumo wrestlers and heavy, bump-toe combat boots — to church. Hey, I was just glad she came to church back then and I wasn’t about to quibble over what she wore.
