    After leading a parish pilgrimage to Italy and dealing with family and parish matters I have been very busy and not had time to blog very much. There has been nothing too dramatic, but the usual...

    One of the things I am grateful for in our world today is the attention given to the loving nurture and care of children. We see more and more products being made, articles being written, and...

    Calm me in my rush this morning as I pack and drive to and park at the airport. I know I’ll never be as adept of a traveler as George Clooney in Up in the Air. I pack too much because… well, I may...
