Do you not care if we perish?

“Teacher, do you not care if we perish?” This is what the disciples said to Jesus when crossing the sea and a storm began to blow. This is from yesterday’s Gospel reading, Mark 4:35 – 41. Do you ever ask Jesus the same question? “Jesus, don’t you care about me?”

Global Warming and the Pope

Leave a comment

Earlier today Pope Francis released a new encyclical “Laudato si'”Praise Be: On the Care for our Common Home. As with anything the Pope writes or says, there is sure to be a lot of misinterpretation, especially by the mainstream media.

I know it is hard to believe, but the silly season has begun again. Yes, it’s true, we are already seeing the dawn of the 2016 Presidential Campaign.

The Wonder of it All

I’ve noticed lately that I spend a lot of time looking at things, noticing things more than I used to. This could be because I have more time to do this, or more likely because it is finally spring here in the Northeast, a time for rebirth and renewing. Gee, that sounds like the Resurrections doesn’t it?
