I know things have been pretty quiet on this blog for the past week. I’ve been in a bit of a funk lately.

This is priceless – I wish someone could translate!
Today’s Gospel reading from Matthew (below) made me think of this hilarious video I came across over the weekend: Just a quick note on today’s Gospel. A few years ago a priest here gave some good advice about what it means to forgive someone seventy times. He said, obviously we need to forgive people as many times as they offend … Read More

It’s outrage!! And it seems that our neighbors to the North … Read More
