Scenes from my first Christmas

Yes, this is my First Christmas.....as a Deacon of course. Fr. Andrew reminded me and the entire congregation of that, along with the story ...

Do we decide?

I'm still on the book .....Behold  the Man"  and there is now another quote  I have to share with you...."Do we accept the responsibility of life giving love and communion that comes with being Catholic, or do we decide and define for ourselves what being Catholic means, influenced by a culture of death that chokes the word and bears no fruit?" 

What does it mean to each one of us about being Catholic, and who gets to decide?

  1. Hi Deacon Mitch,

    Thank you so much for the work you are doing with the men in the parish. It is sorely needed! I don't know if you've already read this but it came to me a few months back on a Facebook post by one of the Catholic sites that I subscribe to. It was entitled: "Into The Breach", An Apostolic Exhortation to Catholic Men, my Spiritual Sons in the Diocese of Phoenix, by Thomas J. Olmsted, Bishop of Phoenix, Arizona. It really piqued my interest so I delved into it. It is very powerful and applies to both men and women! It's over 20 pages long. You can go on-line and find it at: intothebreach.org. Also, I'm recommending two more great books that I read over the summer: "It's Dangerous to Believe", and "Adam and Eve After the Pill", both by Mary Eberstadt. Both are very disturbing and will most likely shock you and make your blood pressure rise as they did mine!! Also, the "Theology of the Body" retreat that I participated in a couple of years ago was one of the best things I ever did! Wish it had been around when I was a young woman! Anyone contemplating marriage should definitely do this retreat! I really enjoy your homilies! Keep up the good work!
