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.”

I recently visited two of the seminaries where our men from the Diocese of Savannah are studying to be our future priests. As the Vocation Director, I have a privileged view of the good that is happening in the seminaries, giving me much encouragement and hope for the future.

The president of France, Emanuel Macron, really stirred the pot a few weeks ago when he was speaking to a group at a Gates Foundation event in New York.

Whether you want to use Ecclesiastes 3, or The Byrds, there is a season for all things, and in the simplest of terms that means: We all “turn” into our parents. That thought passed through my mind as I walked up to every caretaker at our All Saints Trunk or Treat and said, “You know, when I was growing up we only got one piece of candy per house.”

Hace poco visité dos de los seminarios donde estudian nuestros seminaristas de la Diócesis de Savannah para ser nuestros futuros sacerdotes. Como Director Vocacional tengo una perspectiva privilegiada de las cosas buenas que están ocurriendo en los seminarios, lo cual me llena de gran esperanza para el futuro.

My phone camera is filled with screenshots of beautiful table settings, ideas for perfect centerpieces and stacks of just-right china and silver. I have a plan for the perfect Thanksgiving tablescape: I just can’t execute it.

My eyes went left and right in search of a black-suited man with Band-Aids on his face as the service center lady said, “You need a new motor.”

 

“A new what?” was the only reply I could muster, still intently focused on locating "Mayhem" somewhere in our vicinity. Magan was left shaking her head saying, “What?” in hopes of luring me away from the phone long enough to share the news.

While I was in college there was a blind student one year below me. I never had a class with him, and only spoke with him once, but everyone on campus knew him. He was part of the chapel’s music ministry, having to memorize the words and notes of every song they prepared for Mass. He walked around campus with great ease using one of those distinctive white canes used by the blind.
