The mercy of God

Today, the Sunday after Easter, Catholics honor the Mercy of God. Of course, we need God's mercy year 'round. So much needless cruelty and suffering in the world could be avoided - or at least overcome - -if mercy were in greater supply. Think, for example, of the senseless violence in our own neighborhoods. But Divine Mercy Sunday focuses in a special way on God's love at work through the passion, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Mentoring twins was an eye opener

I first met them about a year ago last year. They were the epitome of youth: energetic, exuberant, poised to conquer the world, eager to learn and experience everything that they can possibly learn and experience while deeply rooted in the moral compass and Christian ethics instilled in them by their parents.

Veterans suffer in blame game

Around 10 years ago – I believe that time is accurate, because as I grow older, time speeds up immensely – I took my mother to the Veteran's Administration outpatient clinic in Redding for an appointment. I remember looking at the clientele in the waiting room thinking how when the waves of post-war casualties from our then- (and now-) current conflict starting hitting the VA system how much it would be overrun and over-burdened.
