Tech Safety Act

As we move into Lent, we reflect on who we are and who the Gospel calls us to be. This renewal demands an examination of attitudes and actions. Events of the past year have engaged our nation in a similar examination of consciousness, and, of course, there is a connection between our individual and collective [...]

Having just passed the first anniversary of identifying COVID, we know how much healing our nation needs. As new, more contagious strains of the virus appear, the human toll increases. Statistics give an account of the number of people who have fallen ill and of those who have died of the virus, but true to [...]

Words Matter-House Impeachment

Words matter.  The Incarnate Word, Jesus speaks unceasingly to us of God’s love.  We make vows; public officials begin their service with an oath to their office, convinced that people are as good as their word.  For almost two weeks, our nation has been immersed in a consideration of words and their consequences.  On January [...]

Final Epiphany

How well we know the Epiphany story:  A distant star, eager pilgrims, a leader determined to preserve his power, and a newborn child--God’s tiny, infinite and intimate gift.   And there were presents: gold for kingship, frankincense for divinity, and myrrh, an aromatic used to prepare the dead.  Finally, there was the dream warning the magi [...]

Christ The King

What would it be like to see Christ the King through Mary’s eyes? I imagine she sees her beloved Son as one who asks only that we accept and share God’s mercy. This is Christ’s gift to us and the gift he asks of us. In this time of protests, civic divisions, pandemic spread with [...]

Police Reform

How well our blessed mother understands the pain of parents mourning the death of their child! On Monday October 27th, we witnessed yet another black family who mourned the death of their son at the hands of Philadelphia police. Walter Wallace's mother had called for an ambulance to assist her emotionally disturbed son; however, the [...]

Temporary Protected Status

In her Magnificat, Mary rejoices in God's mercy that reaches "from generation to generation." Pandemic related isolation has caused us to miss that wide human contact with family and friends. Scientific explanations and social and technological support help, but we remain lonely and stressed. If as adults we find the long and ongoing but temporary [...]

Alaska Refuge

Last week's feast of the Queenship of Mary reminded us of our mission to follow Christ in working for justice and peace.  Plans to allow oil and gas leasing programs to operate in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, home to wolves, caribou, and other wildlife.  The drilling also threatens the culture and livelihood of the [...]
