The Golden Thread of Time

Here we are living in time you and I. Yesterday is gone. We are waiting for tomorrow. And the present moment eludes us even as we try to grasp it. God lives in eternity, where there is no yesterday. There is no tomorrow. God is not waiting for the sunset or the dawn. God lives […]

Somebody Said About Mothers

Somebody said it takes about six weeks to get back to normal after you’ve had a baby …somebody doesn’t know that once you’re a mother, normal is history. Somebody said you learn how to be a mother by instinct …somebody never took a three-year-old shopping Somebody said being a mother is boring …somebody never rode […]

Love and Revelation…

To love someone is not first of all to do things for them, but to reveal to them their beauty and value, to say to them through our attitude: “You are beautiful. You are important. I trust you. You can trust yourself.” We all know well that we can do things for others and in […]

What is the probablity that everyone will have their eyes closed at the same time in a picture? 🙂 This is my calculus class. We’ve been together for three years (through Honors Algebra 2, Math Analysis, and Calculus). I will miss them.

One Particular Prayer

The other morning, this thought entered my stream of consciousness quite abruptly. It was not like most thoughts that seem to float down my river of consciousness, where I can gingerly shift focus of attention from one thought to the next, as if hopping from one boat to another. No, this thought appeared suddenly, as […]

Teach Me to Listen

Teach me to listen, O God, to those nearest me, my family, my friends, my coworkers. Help me to be aware that no matter what words I hear, the message is, “Accept the person I am. Listen to me.” Teach me to listen, my caring God, to those far from me—the whisper of the hopeless, the plea of the forgotten, the cry of the anguished. Teach me to listen, O God my Mother, to myself. Help me to be less afraid to trust the voice inside—in the deepest part of me. Teach me to listen, Holy Spirit, for your voice—in the busyness and in boredom, in certainy and in doubt, in noise and in silence. Teach me, Lord, to listen. Amen. — Adapted by John Veltri, S.J.

Stress Test

The attached photo was used in a case study on stress level at St. Mary’s Hospital. In the photo, you will see two dolphins jumping out of the water. The dolphins are identical. A closely monitored, scientific study revealed that in spite of the fact that the dolphins are identical, a person under stress would […]

The Bible

It is the very nature of the Bible to affront, perplex and astonish the human mind. Hence the reader who opens the Bible must be prepared for disorientation, confusion, incomprehension, perhaps outrage. — Thomas Merton A couple of days ago, I received an email from Anita asking me to write about what is meant by […]

Consolation and Desolation

In the last scene of the season’s final episode of Joan of Arcadia, Joan’s parents are quietly talking in Joan’s hospital room. Helen had talked to a priest earlier in the day… Helen: He said that we go through times on consolation and desolation. Consolation is when things are flowing, and everything makes sense, and […]

Strange Coincidence?

In the Thursday night re-run episode of Joan of Arcadia called “The Uncertainty Principle”, God tells Joan to ask a troubled and lonely guy to a dance, a bully that no one likes. Joan:  Well, you never told me to ask evil out on a date before. God:  Evil is not a word to use […]
