Worry.  It seems to be a constitutive part of human life.  It can be oppressive and intense at times, depending on our life situation.  A single mother barely getting by can feel an ever-present worry about how to provide for her family.  Our culture, obsessed with appearances, can cause worry in the average person about…

What does it mean to be perfect?  Webster’s dictionary gives a definition of “being entirely without fault or defect: flawless.”  A quest for perfection can lead us to achieve great things, but it can also lead to damage.  Since we are human, being “without fault” is not something we can achieve.  Our society tends to…

Law

Laws are important for any society.  They give us a structure for living as a community.  We have courts, judges, police forces and law makers all to help our law making and keeping.  In Jesus’ time, the Jews had additional religious laws that impacted their everyday lives.  These religious laws flowed from the Ten Commandments…

This Sunday we approach the end of the Christmas season.  Tuesday we return to the green of ordinary time after closing Christmas with the Feast of Jesus’ Baptism on Monday.  But before we do so, we celebrate this feast of the Epiphany and the Magi who followed a star to find Jesus.  It is also…

Happy New Year to all!  Today is a day for toasts, resolutions, football games, and family celebrations.  In addition to these, today we celebrate the Solemnity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Mother of God.  It is a day of honoring Mary for her role in the history of salvation as Mother of God. “Mother…

In the St. Joseph’s chapel resides the Cathedral’s manger scene.  It is a serene scene with Joseph and Mary lovingly beholding Jesus.  The shepherds look on with a holy awe and wise men arrive to pay their homage.  This scene is one that can engender a sense of warmth, peace, and calm.  But if we…
