Thursday November 9, 2017 Jn 2:13-15

This episode in the gospel of Jesus driving out the traders in the temple is so unlike him.  I usually think of Jesus as the meek and humble one who would not hurt a fly.  The one who turns the other cheek and gives his clock to the needy.  Frankly Jesus driving out the traders

November 1, 2017 All Saints Day

Today we celebrate the great feast of All Saints and I am reminded of a conversation I had many years ago with a Fr. Franco.  He used to be my parish priest when I lived in Kafue, Zambia.  Father was giving us a lesson on this great feast and he mentioned that to be a

Wednesday July 12, 2017 Mt 10: 1-7
