Overcoming Racism, Reproductive Genocide, and Sexual Perversion with Grace and Goodness

“God’s grace and truth must always be at the center of our life. This is common sense.” Rev. Walter Quinn Today I attended Mass at Priests for Life at our monthly administrative meeting where Father Walter Quinn delivered the homily.

In reading Ezekiel 30, I reflected on this passage: Ezekiel 30:  17 The young men…will die in battle,…

Discovering “pockets of happiness” in a “messed up world”

Discovering “pockets of happiness” in a “messed up world”

Recently I was invited to officiate at a “baby dedication” for three little children.

Stop And Smell The Roses

Stop And Smell The Roses

And I’ve been talking with colleagues in the natural life and family movement, which includes pro-life, marriage between a man and a woman, good educational choices, stopping the violence in our world, helping people not to be overwhelmed with life, and all of that.
