Following my ordination as a priest, I never imagined that I would become so immersed in the issue of immigration. I knew that as an immigrant I would serve fellow immigrants, and I anticipated working with Spanish-speaking Catholics since I spoke Spanish.

WASHINGTON (CNS)--Do Catholics believe that the Eucharist is truly the body and blood of Christ?


A Pew Research Center survey released Aug. 5 found that nearly 70% of Catholics believe that the bread and wine used for Communion during Mass are “symbols of the body and blood of Jesus Christ,” while about 30% believe that the bread and wine “actually become” Christ’s body and blood.


The findings clearly touched a nerve as commentators jumped to analyze the data, questioning the language that Pew had used in its survey questions.

Cuando fui ordenado sacerdote nunca me imaginé que estaría tan inmerso en el tema de la inmigración. Anticipaba que serviría a mis compañeros inmigrantes y que trabajaría con católicos de habla hispana ya que yo hablaba español.

My friend Sabine recently asked if there was anything she could do to serve me. She had it on her heart to do something for me, and she just wasn’t sure what. Her husband travels for work and her week had free time, and she felt God asking her to do something for my family.

What is your attitude toward work? Do you work in order to live, or do you live in order to work? How do you express yourself through your work? Do you feel that you accomplish something of value most days, or do you feel that your labor is meaningless toil that only achieves your minimal paycheck?


These questions reflect some of the many attitudes that people have toward work.

Jesus returned to Galilee after spending 40 days in the desert. He traveled all around the area, healing those who were sick and calling people to follow him.


One day Jesus and his friends were walking through a field of grain. It was the Sabbath, a day of rest on which no work was to be done.


As they walked through the field, Jesus’ followers picked the heads of grain, rolled them between their hands and ate them.


The Pharisees noticed and questioned Jesus.


“Why are you doing what is unlawful on the Sabbath?” they asked.

Imagine if it were determined that 20% of mass killers were afflicted with diabetes. Imagine if the public discourse revolved around diabetes being a factor that prompted them to commit their horrific crimes. On the face of it, the idea of blaming diabetes for mass murder seems absurd and insulting to people who have diabetes. But the same argument is being made about mental illness and gun violence, linking horrific massacres to people who suffer from mental illness.
