6 September 2020 In the second reading today Paul says a very interesting thing. He says that the only debt any of us have is the promise to love one another. Another man, Merrit Malloy, writing about death suggests this for all of us living in a poem called “Epitaph” When I die give what’s left of me away To children and old men that wait to die. And if you need to cry, Cry for your brother walking the street beside you. And when you need me, put your arms around anyone And give them what you need to give me. I want to leave you something,...

TWENTY –SECOND SUNDAY OF THE YEAR

30 August 2020 After I had been at Newman for about 20 years my mother called one morning.  As most of you know I grew up in Hatley. My parents lived right across the street from the parish complex— School, convent, rectory, church, cemetery. So my mother calls and says:  “Oh, you’re still there.” “Yesssss,” I said.  “And why wouldn’t I still be here?” “Well,” she said, “I heard from someone that you’d been moved.” “Really?”  I said.  “And just when did you hear that?” “Oh, about a week ago?” she said.

I didn’t know a soul at St. John’s. I didn’t go for orientation and I picked my classes for that first semester rather thoughtlessly: Logic–at 8 am taught by an old monk who taught only this class And then went off to the abbey woods to log for the rest of the day. Introduction to Sociology, taught by a monk who chain-smoked during class. Interpersonal...
