“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.

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.

“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.

Nine years ago, I was part of a local running club that was training for a half-marathon. I loved this group and all the time we spent together. It was a good season where my five sons were all young enough to not have too many activities going on, and I was able to sneak out three days a week for group runs that took me all over our city.

The prayers of the faithful had just begun when I received a pair of requests for intercession of my own: “Daddy, can I go to the bathroom?” was loudly whispered by Jesse and Eli over several siblings down the pew.

 

“Alright,” I replied, “let’s go.”
