The Great Responsibility on the Battlefront of Fatherhood - June 19, 2022

Fathers of Prince of Peace... If Jesus, who is God, needed a human (nonbiological) father in Saint Joseph while on earth, how much more do our children need us!? Our children have a throne marked in Heaven with their name engraved upon it, but there is an enemy that seeks to prevent them from ever sitting upon their throne.

A letter to our graduates - May 22, 2022

Dear graduates, as the father of five adult children, I have experienced what your parents are going through right now.  Let me shed some light on what you probably perceive as truly bizarre behavior!  You see, the part of their lives that you filled while living at home will now be empty.  As you prepare to move from under their roof, they are reflecting on your journey to adulthood – and with that reflection are surges of heartache, but also hope.  The heartache is the pain of loss – as you grew, they have tried to sacrifice heroically for you.

Traditionally many reflect on the “Seven Last Words of Christ.” If you look between the four Gospels, you find seven sentences Jesus speaks—three are unique to the Gospel of Luke, three to John, and one to Matthew/Mark.
