Fr. Glenn: Lessons From A Coyote

Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church
Los Alamos

Walking across our frigid parking lot last Thursday morning, as I often do I saw a coyote trotting along the edge in that characteristic coyote lope … returning from her journey to who-knows-where (likely scavenging around the high school … gnawing on tender freshmen now and again?) But this isn’t just any ol’ coyote; she’s the same one I’ve seen skulking about since early spring—easily recognized by an apparent malady reducing her fur to a minimum.

With all this sexual harassment stuff these days, we hesitate to click a news website or open a newspaper, for it means to receive yet another new revelation of some luminary who has strayed far from the path of propriety … followed by the almost inevitable “apology” … even though their malfeasance may have continued to the very time of being revealed. So … is he sorry for the behavior, or just sorry he was caught? One can’t help but wonder; one can’t help but doubt.

Pastor Granillo: He Is Coming

When He returns is not as important as the fact that we are ready for Him when He does return. ―A.W. Tozer

My mom was a working, single mom. (For the record, these people are among the highest level of superheroes.) This meant that my siblings and I would often come home from school and find the house empty because mom had to go to work. We had a procedure in place for when this happened. We were to lock the doors, find the list that she left for us, and then call her to let her know we were all safely at home.

Fr. Glenn: Forgive Us Our Trespasses…

Huh … Charles Manson died about a week ago. For those too young to remember, Manson was leader of a cult (“the Manson family”), which engaged in torture and murder back in the late 1960’s, but he fortunately was captured, his cult broken up and he had been in prison ever since … dying after many decades of incarceration at the age of 83.

Predictably, some headlines were vengeful and gloating; for example: “Make Room, Satan; Charles Manson is Finally Going to Hell”, and editorial cartoons were rife with depictions of

It seems we can scarcely open a news website or newspaper each day—sometimes each hour—without reading that yet another celebrity, politician, or eminent person has been accused of sexual harassment or abuse.

Sexuality, of course, is one of our most basic drives—probably only just below survival itself … and sometimes even survival loses out.

Fr. Glenn: The Mystery Of Evil

We often wonder why God allows certain things. The Sutherland Springs church shooting last Sunday is certainly one of those, and we could as easily recall Las Vegas, Orlando, or any other such event or tragedy, natural or manmade. Why did God allow those who love and worship Him—young and old—to die in the very midst of that worship?

And yet … needless violence has always been with us.

Fr. Glenn: ‘What Is Truth?’

One thing very all too evident in our day is the impatience and incivility manifested in so much of our public (and likely, private) discussion. I often lament to hear of persons walking out on talks, lectures, sermons/homilies etc., simply because some (even perhaps all) of the speaker’s points do not coincide with the “walker’s” own ideas.

One wonders how the walker will understand accurately the speaker’s views and ideas if exiting the moment he hears something “offensive” or not in accord with his own?

One of my tasks, as a parent, is to help my kids develop good habits. My wife and I realized, early on, that children will typically develop poor habits if good habits are not encouraged.
