About 15 years ago, I was invited to give a talk in Santa Fe about the Mexican border. I thought about that today because the person who invited me, Bob Glazier, an old friend, died recently.

Hace 15 años un amigo, Roberto Glazier, me invitó a hacer una presentación en Santa Fe, Nuevo México, sobre la frontera mexicana. Repasé ayer el contenido en PowerPoint, porque mi amigo murió recientemente.

 

Me di cuenta de que todas las personas en la presentación vivían la tradición celebrada en Las Posadas cada Navidad. Pero, más que costumbre navideña, era su misión.

I recently watched a movie released in 2007.  I had heard it was excellent, but the plot did not intrigue me: a young man goes hiking in Alaska and dies shortly before returning to civilization because he mistakenly eats poisoned berries.  I had been terribly wrong for years.  The story of Christopher McCandless is extraordinarily moving.  It is a story of discovery, healing and sadly, premature death.

Merry Christmas. As I write this I’m in a restaurant where they are taking down all the holiday decorations two days after Christmas. I told the manager that one of the things I love about being Catholic is that Christmas goes on for so many days after the 25th. It’s so wonderful.

“Daddy, our church is being invaded by the bishops,” Jesse leaned in to tell me from the back pew, just moments before Bishop Hartmayer was set to begin the celebration of both the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception, as well as the diaconate installation candidacy and lectors.

Recientemente vi una película lanzada en el 2007. Había escuchado que era excelente, pero no encontraba la historia muy interesante: un joven se va de excursión a Alaska y muere poco antes de regresar a la civilización al erróneamente comer semillas venenosas. Ahora reconozco que estuve muy equivocado. La historia de Christopher McCandless es extraordinariamente conmovedora. Es una historia de descubrimiento, sanación y lamentablemente de una muerte prematura.

“The hopelessness all around us is endless,” writes the theologian Father Romano Guardini in his 1957 book titled The Living God where he elegantly expresses what every human heart experiences periodically throughout its existence: extreme desolation, loneliness and despair.

I went through a few days recently where every conversation seemed to focus on people I know struggling with major problems. A loved one dealing with poor health, someone struggling with addiction. There were relationships that were strained, people who were just difficult to deal with, and good folks making choices that made life harder than it needed to be.

There is a ballet that ensues around our home between 7:30 and 9 p.m. almost nightly.

“La desesperanza que nos rodea no conoce límites,” escribe el teólogo Romano Guardini en su libro de 1957 titulado El Dios Viviente donde elocuentemente expresa lo que todo corazón humano siente periódicamente a lo largo de su existencia: desolación, soledad, y desesperación.
