Truth – unpleasant and inconvenient, but . . .

. . . truth, nonetheless.

In the middle of Holy Week, look at the Christ on our doorstep, whom we turn away from.

Forget about enemies. If we love only those who are “nice,” what good is it? How do we love those who are not nice?

I have been a Catholic priest for nearly fifty years, most of that time serving in parish and college campus ministry. I also have professional degrees in theology and liturgy, as well as institutional management, and continue avidly to explore pastoral theology, Scripture, liturgy, ecumenical and interfaith relations, and spiritual direction. I have a passion for sharing insight into our Christian heritage through teaching, writing, and leading pilgrimages, especially to Early Christian World sites in Turkey. Now actively retired from parish ministry, I live at Nazareth House in Los Angeles.
