We headed out on a family hike last week, eager to get in some sunshine after weeks of relentless rain. It had been several very lazy weeks of Christmas break, and while I’m all for relaxing and resting up, it was starting to feel like the days of being cooped up in the house would never end.

There is a widely-circulated story involving my grandma and a pair of nicely-dressed young men stopping by her house to ask, “Have you heard the good news of the Lord?”
 
Grandma welcomed them in and asked if they’d like something to drink while she fixed a cup of coffee. (They weren’t interested in the coffee.)

Recuerdo una vez escuchar a mi abuelo decir, “cuanto más uno habla, más oportunidad hay de decir tonterías”. Esto es muy cierto, pienso que es mejor escuchar más y hablar menos. Lamentablemente en la actualidad todos hablan, pero pocos escuchan. Las vías para uno expresarse se han multiplicado en estas últimas décadas, y me atrevo a decir que hay tanta información en el internet que una serie de vidas no serían suficientes para leer todo.

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.
