Every Day

At the risk of sounding pious, every morning when I first wake up, usually with my eyes still closed, I make a little sign of the cross on my forehead with my thumb and pray, “I’m Yours.” It reminds me of my Sacrament of Confirmation where Father traced the sign of the cross on my […]

Paperclip Campaign

This week is the national week for the Days of Remembrance for the victims of the Holocaust. As a way to remember them, and to remember all victims of terrorism and hate crimes, wear a paperclip on your collar this week! A few years ago, a grass roots campaign was started by Sharyn Markus, a […]


They tell how it was, and how time came along, and how it happened again and again. They tell the slant life takes when it turns and slashes your face as a friend. Any wound is real. In church a woman lets the sun find her cheek, and we see the lesson: there are years […]

The Litany of Shortfalls

Lord, There was some parenting I didn’t receive;       You are my Father. There was some romancing I shouldn’t have trusted;       You are the Lover of my Soul. There are some things I want, but can’t find;       You are the Source of all good things. There are […]

Pause A While

Richard Rohr in Everything Belongs makes this simple but bold statement: God is either in this now or God isn’t at all. Think about that for a moment. Let it sink in. Okay. Do you believe that? Do you believe that in the deepest parts of your heart? Do believe that God is here now? […]

What is Real?

“What is REAL?” asked the Rabbit one day. “Does it mean having things that buzz inside you and a stick-out handle?” The only toy that was kind to the Rabbit was the Skin Horse. The Skin Horse had lived in the nursery longer than any of the others, and he was very wise. “Real isn’t […]

My Name is I AM

I was regretting the past and fearing the future. Suddenly my Lord was speaking: “My name is I am.” He paused. I waited. He continued. “When you live in the past with its mistakes and regrets, it is hard. I am not there. My name is not I WAS. “When you live in the future, […]

Psalm 143 — Mercy

Winston Churchill was plagued by what they use to call “melancholy”. Today we call it depression. He called it the “black dog”. I think he saw it as an enemy not to fight, but to avoid. Some say that is why he took up painting. I received the Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick back […]

Fact, Faith, and Feeling are three men walking along the top of a well. As long as Faith keeps his eyes on Fact, ahead of him, all three keep walking. But when Faith takes his eyes off Fact and turns around to worry about how Feeling is doing, both Faith and Feeling fall off the […]

What Are You Leaving Out?

I knew there were many interesting sights, but I didn’t want any more of the little answers, I wanted the big answer. So I asked the guestmaster to show me directly to the House of God. I sat myself down, quite willing to wait for the big answer. I remained silent all day, far into […]

Learn to Float

An allegory: Many people never learn to float. They never manage to take the initial risk, to do the opposite of what their instincts tell them. They never learn to relax, to let their head be pillowed by the water, to let go, hang loose, float free. Perhaps they simply decide they don’t want to […]
