Many saints experienced a crisis of faith at some point during their lives. Rather than shy away from the pain, they embraced it. This stage is the one you probably find yourself in now. Can you find your way through this pain to a rebirth of faith? Many before you have succeeded in this. We […]

Gratefulness

Mon, 10/19/2020 - 05:30

Remembering what my own eyes have seen is a practice in gratefulness. My own eyes have seen good people beyond counting and blessings without number. My eyes have seen the birth of my children and the passing of my parents. I have seen terrible accidents but many, many more near misses. My eyes have seen […]

Elements of Hope

Wed, 10/14/2020 - 05:30

What might an Ignatian approach to hope look like, especially in days that may feel turbulent? Ignatian hope is at root a Christian hope: Christians affirm in the Creed our belief in bodily resurrection and in eternal life. God is good, and God’s goodness always remains powerful and present, no matter what else is going […]

Luke Learns from Mary

Mon, 10/12/2020 - 05:30

In honor of the October 18 feast of St. Luke, let’s listen in to an imagined story by the evangelist. It started with Mary. I first met her during a trip with Paul, who I first joined in Troas; we went throughout Macedonia, so a stop in Ephesus was easy to manage. Mary was mending […]

I was standing in the parking lot of Campion Hall at Seattle University, my eyes welling with tears that I refused to let fall and a lump in my throat that I forced myself to swallow. It was the moment I had been dreading for 25 years: the end of my life being responsible for […]

The Great Re-Imaginer

Wed, 10/07/2020 - 05:30

Having faith and hope seems almost absurd in times like these. The brokenness, darkness, and suffering of our world are in plain sight. Uncertainty looms and lurks around us. Fear rears its head way too easily. I hear the cries of despair in my daily comings and goings. I see the pain as I listen […]

Soul to Soul

Mon, 10/05/2020 - 05:30

The loud clang, clang, clang of the church bells resounding across the quad combined with the incessant chatter of excited kids running out of classrooms, looking for either their family cars in the carpool lane or their parents waiting on the warm September concrete. The noise of the bells was so loud it elevated the […]
