This morning, my sister emailed me about this powerful video. For some of you reading this blog, it will have deep meaning. Mother Theresa used to say that we didn't need to do great things, just little things with great love. The video speaks for itself....[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ov71Tmcch_s]

I have only been to one military funeral. Lance Cpl. Matthew Snyder was 20 years old when he was killed in Iraq on March 3, 2006. Matthew was from my church, and his mother was one of our religious education volunteers.His funeral took place right after we had gotten news that our pastor was critically ill in Italy, and we didn't know if he would recover. Our nerves were very raw and our hearts...

I hope you find it beneficial.When I began making the Spiritual Exercises, I began working on the discipline of the Daily Examen. I can't say I was always faithful to it, but it was very beneficial when I did. I continue to strive to make it a...

The other night, I happened to catch the season finale of The Biggest Loser. I'm usually at work when the show is on, but I saw it for the first time during one of our big snow storms. I guess that was towards the beginning of the season.Having recently undergone my own weight loss journey, I was amazed at the exercise routine of these very obese people. Without a doubt, they had to have the...

First off, hope you're having a good day. I had to go to Baltimore for a meeting, and someone I work with asked me to pick up a bag of the country potatoes I wrote about yesterday. I had to go to two Trader Joe's stores before I found them :( As it turns out, they're a new item. I hope you can find them easily.When I was on my eight day silent retreat last year, my spiritual director told me...

I wanted to tell you about a new dinner I've been making over the last few weeks, compliments of Trader Joe's. They are always bringing out new products, and I recently picked up a couple of bags of their Country Potatoes with Haricots Verts (green beans) and Wild Mushrooms. Everything is pre-cooked and seasoned with olive oil and garlic. Heating them through in a saute pan takes just a few...

Although it was a bit overcast today here in Maryland, it would a great day to go sailing. I haven't been too many times, but when I do go sailing, especially on the Chesapeake Bay, I realize how much I love to be around water. There's something about the immensityof what's right underneath the hull of the boat. I'm reminded of the saying, you're a little fish in a big pond.I'm pretty sure you...

When the time for Pentecost was fulfilled, they were all in one place together.And suddenly there came from the sky a noise like a strong driving wind, and it filled the entire house in which they were.Then there appeared to them tongues as of fire, which parted and came to rest on each one of them.And they were all filled with the holy Spirit and began to speak in different tongues, as the...
