Jesuits, Rabbis, Strangers, and Awe.
I have a prayer partner. 
Every morning we connect across the miles and exchange intentions.   Yesterday morning, we texted as usual: How may I pray?  she asked. Not sure what I need. I will ask Mary to accompany you today and meet every need that arises. I...

Our Lady of Sorrows
It’s one of those statutes destined to drive non-Catholics a
little batty. Bigger than life size, extravagant in detail and anguish,
Simeon’s prophecy to Mary given flesh and steel.  Something to contemplate this Feast of the
Seven Sorrows. One thing that s...

Mystery
I love
mysteries.  I’ve written two (please,
God, a publisher!)  and have read hundreds. I cut my teeth on Sherlock Holmes, own several collections of the tales including
the ultra-nerdy annotated version.  This  is probably why I am not fond of “sequels” o...

Trick Question
What follows is a rambling reflection apropos of not much
more than the heartbreakingly sad state of affairs in America on February 4,
2014. I got a forward from a resident at one of the more
prestigious medical schools in the country. 
The subject was one ...

Candlemas
Our Advent discipline was to turn off anything electrical or
electronic that gave light (no computers or cell phones!) at 8 in the evening
and spend the remaining hour before bed by the light of candles and oil
lamps.  Four weeks, give or take, living
as ou...

Yes
Last evening, sometime after 7:30, I was sitting in a dark, very loud concert hall listening to a Christian rock artist, watching a sea of young folks sing along and wave--it's a technological world--their smartphones instead of bic lighters in the dark.  H...

My Favorite Sins
There’s already been an
ocean of ink spilled over the synod and the relatio that has come from it, with
plenty of disappointment on both sides.   The relatio retains the vague and non-specific language that
characterizes thinking-in-process, but it does off...

Martha, Martha Redux
One tries not to get athwart
ones guests.  However, if one is yours
truly, that doesn’t always happen….this time it was in discussion of Martha, my
patron saint and on her feast day no less. I have to admit that I am a
bit touchy on the subject of Martha.  ...

The Right Question
I spend my life answering questions.   Always have.   People come to me for answers, right, wrong or indifferent, every day in
my line of work.   One of the first things I have learned is that answering the
right question—which is not necessarily the one as...

Sex, Love, and Personhood
Having spent innumerable weeks in an online bioethics course wrangling with the ethics of abortion, contraception, ensoulment,  and the definition of personhood, I can say without fear of contradiction that the discussion is pretty much a fine mess.  Witnes...

Within Your Hearing
I have now officially surpassed my previous record of
consorting with Catholics, set when I was fortunate enough to attend a papal
mass with 85,000 or so of my closest Catholic relatives.  With half a million folks or so at the March
For Life—and a great pl...

Sightseeing
Someone asked me what I hoped to get out of this trip. I know this sounds hokey but I really don't have expectations.  I think God will surprise me. You know what's great (so far, anyway) about a trip like this? Spending the day with a bunch of visibly Cath...
