Pastor's Pen, 4th Lenten Sunday

On the last day of school in my first year in Jamaica, I remember an interaction I had with a student. As exams were coming up and religion was not high on their priorities, I lost my temper with this young man who was studying for some other course. I had made judgments about him and so I spoke harshly towards him in front of others. After the fact, I felt bad.

Pastor's Pen, 3rd Lenten Sunday

During this Lent, I’ve been thinking a lot about the expression of the Christian life. We often think of the Christian life in terms of the moral or ethical life. This means that there are good things that Christians should do and bad things that Christians should avoid.


Pastor's Pen, 2nd Lenten Sunday

In one sense the transfiguration is easy for us to understand. Jesus Christ is perfectly God and perfectly human – at the transfiguration he reveals both natures, the divine and human, to his disciples and all of us. In another sense it’s less clear but much more personal. Some years ago, while on retreat, I was given the transfiguration to pray.


Pastor's Pen, 1st Lenten Sunday

Due to a very heavy schedule this week, Fr. John was unable to provide us with his weekly note. We offer this wonderful Catechesis from Pope Francis on the Sacrament of Reconciliation. -Anna


Pastor's Pen, 8th Regular Sunday

I’ve been thinking these days of faith.  In this week’s Gospel Jesus in fact asks if his followers were “of little faith?”  Throughout the Gospels we hear Jesus speaking of faith as part of one’s miraculous healing, of having enough faith to command a mountain to move
