August 18, 2013  Jeremiah 38:4-6, 8-10; Heb. 12:1-4, Lk. 12:49-53


I am often asked, “Do you feel lonely?”  And the answer is “No”, not for along time, for I have come to understand that I am surrounded by “a great cloud of witnesses”–my parents, teachers, friends, Jesus, Dorothy Day, Damien, Francis–I am not in an armchair but in a race, moving forward, drawing on my strength, persevering–and when I meet obstacles I can look to Jesus, who faced and over came worse. Yesterday during Elizabeth’s ordination I thought of the decades of my ministry–like the worn, tattered rabbit you become and so I persevere and become more tattered. Deo Gratias! Thanks be to God!
