Letter to a Young Priest

“Gather around you kind, honest parishioners. And one effective spiritual director – older, wise women work best.  They will keep you honest and humble.  They will apply bandages when you fight incompetent authority – for you will be wounded in those fights.  But you will also be blessed by the good, honest parishioners, clergy, and bishops whose goodness you will discern out of your spiritual disciplines and who will nurse you back to health.”

Firing Up Our Gifts

“God created us each to be the person we are — with talents and passions that need to be used.  We are not what our family or culture dictates that we should be.  Instead we have a unique purpose, whispered to us from the depths of our own hearts, where Christ dwells.”
