PALM/PASSION SUNDAY

Posted on Mar 27, 2021 in Church News, Homilies

28 March 2021 I was very young, a child, when I learned that the crowd’s choice of Barabbas over Jesus was a symbol of our fickleness, our inability to love long and well. And in my child’s mind I remember pledging that I would not be this way– I think every child probably does that.  Every child’s heart goes out to this innocent man and promises with Peter:  “Even if I have to die, I will not desert you.” I wanted to see myself that way, and believe it could be that way. It was a childish pledge, a promise that didn’t know the harsh...

FIFTH SUNDAY OF LENT

Posted on Mar 20, 2021 in Church News, Homilies

21 March 2021 The Greeks, we are told in the gospel, want to see Jesus. It’s a very strange interchange. They don’t approach Jesus directly, and, they only want to see him,             Not hear him, not speak with him.             Just see him Who is this Jesus they only want to see? He’s a rock star.  This incident happens right after the resuscitation of Lazarus. And, how does Jesus respond? With that curious phrase we all know so well:  “Unless a grain of wheat falls to...

FOURTH SUNDAY OF LENT

Posted on Mar 13, 2021 in Church News, Homilies

14 March 2021 Over the years I have had the good fortune to watch a lot of people grow up. From the young people at St. Pat’s to the students at Newman, to the children in this parish. In particular one child was only 12 days old when I first met him. His parents were in the military and when they came home from Berlin, they brought him. He turned out to be an only child, and in the beginning I was sure that would mean a spoiled child. His parents have always wanted the best for him– And they had more patience with him than I did. When he was stubborn and would not eat his vegetables,...
