My reflections on 2020 in the form of a prayer-lament. "Those who know me know that I enjoy writing and sharing year-end reflections on the Eve of a new year. But this year in particular, it’s been hard to find the right words...Though in many ways I am still grieving 2020 (perhaps you are, too), I wish you a Happy New Year and eagerly await our vaccinated embrace. Joy shall come."
On this Holy Saturday
Contemplations on the Scriptures in the time between Good Friday and Easter Sunday.
"...on this Holy Saturday in the time of coronavirus, everything seems extra...slow. It is as if God asks us to wait—to pause—a little while longer in contemplation of his death and resurrection. It is in this waiting that I felt inspired to share what's been on my heart..."
Antoine, from Chicago
"I met a 22-year-old boy on the side of Fullerton St. in Lincoln Park, Chicago.
He held a cardboard sign with his head down. "Hungry." Next to him was a Holy Bible; on his neck, a simple red rosary."
