My bulletin column this week has three quotes from the Cantalamessa retreat. That retreat is bearing great fruit in my preaching and in my personal prayer.

Kind of nice to have made the Vatican news for a tweet. “...ha twittato, ringraziando il Papa...” I hope my thanks to the Holy Father actually makes it to him.

Fr. Cantalamessa influenced my reflection on a line from today’s Gospel Mk 6:48A “Then he saw that they were being tossed about while rowing, for the wind was against them.” He gave us an image of relying on our own rowing when it really is a sailboat, led by the Holy Spirit.

A truly blessed experience to be on retreat with Fr. Raniero Cantalamessa, OFM Cap. and the US bishops. The Holy Spirit was powerfully present and I was quite moved. Thank you Holy Father for giving us this gift.

Heading to Chicago for the Pope’s retreat. Thank you for your prayers. May God inspire us this week to know what to do, or to concede, going forward; whatever is necessary going into the future. Veni Sancte Spiritus.

A girl told me she woke up 3 times last night and at 5:30 she had enough so she woke up her little sister and sent her in to wake up her parents.

The children are holding up the Bambini from their home nativity scenes. The rest of the Church was filled with others holding up theirs. What a wonderful atmosphere at today’s family liturgy.

Here are three Third Graders in Faith Formation dressed by their classmates as Christmas trees. It reminded me of my acting debut as “Big Tree Number One” when I was in First Grade.

“When one speaks of [the Final Judgment] it is usually as of something dreadful. In reality, the judgment is a testimony of honor for man, for it places him in a position of responsibility. Only a free and responsible being can be judged.”

I had three Confirmations at Saint Mary Church in Winchester today. However, the middle one for Ashley and Josh was a particular honor. Blessings on this beautiful parish and all those Confirmed.
