Seeking Shelter

Peace! We hosted "Las Posadas" this evening. A beautiful remembrance of the humility of our Lord, and faith of Mary and Joseph. A lot of people joined us. Praise God!

A Brother And Friend

Peace! I just learned of the death of Br. Eymard McKinnon, ofm cap., of our Province of St. Mary. I thank God for the gift of him. In my own life he was a friend and an inspiration as well as a brother. Eternal Rest grant unto him, O Lord, and may he enter into true LIFE. God bless you, Mac!

Viva La Virgen de Guadalupe!

Paz y Bien! This morning I preached at the mass in honor of Our Lady of Guadalupe. The power was out as we began, and then returned toward the end of my sermon. Just what every preacher dreams of: to see the light go on during a sermon! My favorite image from the account of the apparitions is our Lady taking the time to arrange the roses in Juan Diego's tilma before she sends him off to the bishop. Such care for a little detail, yet how much about God does she reveal. Gracias, Madre!

Pax et Bonum! I have been gone long from this blog, but not, God be praised, from musing. Advent is the perfect time to walk consciously in our path, to seek God's will, and most of all to listen to His words of love in our hearts, our relationships, and the whole created universe. God bless and keep us!
