Fr. Glenn: In Good Times And In Bad…

By Fr. Glenn Jones

Ahhh … a belated Valentine’s Day to you all. Flowers, chocolates, hearts, cards, muchas smooches. Luuuuvvv. Hopefully good romances and kindnesses renewed. And, for you husbands who forgot about it … I hope that couch is comfy. 😉

One of the greatest joys of priests and ministers is the blessing of marriages … brides coming down the aisle embodying scripture, “She was radiant with perfect beauty…” (Esther 15:5), and the congregation musing approvingly of the insight of the groom: “Do not deprive yourself of a wise and good wife, for her charm is worth more than gold.” (Sirach 7:19)

Roadside Art: Wildlife Crossing … Watch For Tortoise!

We have all seen wildlife crossing signs along roadways but they are usually for deer, elk or other larger wildlife. In a desert state park in Nevada, this wildlife crossing sign is for the desert tortoise, which is prevalent in the area and not easily seen by drivers or hikers due to its smaller size. (Photographer Gary Warren travels the country and is sharing his photos of unusual roadside art with the Post.) Photo by Gary Warren/ladailypost.com

Roadside Art: Canoes Spotted On Rocky Hillside

Row, row, row your boat … wait, where’s the water? Three canoes have been placed on a rocky hillside just outside of Terlingua, Texas. I do not know who placed them or why they are there but they make me smile every time I see them. The closest water is the Rio Grande, which is several miles to the south of the canoes.

Roadside Art: World’s Smallest Target Found In Texas

A tiny decaying cinder block building located between Marathon, Texas and Alpine, Texas is now Target Marathon. The building was probably used by the railroad in the past as tracks sit just a few feet behind the structure. It is not known who created the miniature Target, which comes with a red shopping cart out in front. It was first seen in 2016. The world’s smallest Target sits alongside U.S. Highway 90 between the roadway and the train tracks. A little bit of mystery but a project sure to bring a smile to visitors traveling this stretch of highway in west Texas. Photo by Gary Warren/ladailypost.com

Fr. Glenn: Light From Light

By Fr. Glenn Jones

 A beautiful full moon rising above the mountains east of Albuquerque in a cloudless sky this evening … something I used to enjoy even more immensely looking east from the cliffs of Los Alamos as it bathed the Rio Grande valley in the softness of its light. Truly beautiful. Thank you, Lord.

Now, the more analytical among us could, of course, expound on the fact that the moon is really just a cold dark mass of rock and dust, devoid of both life and light, and that it simply reflects light from another source—that massive ball of hydrogen hidden from view which roils with constant

Española Valley

I’ve been thinking quite a bit about my first experiences in Los Alamos. My first memory on the Hill is a Saturday morning in the early 1970s, I was about 5 years old. My mother worked as a housekeeper for Mr. & Mrs. Atkins and would sometimes bring my sister and me with her on a Saturday when she made a special trip to do Mrs. Atkins’ hair.

While she was busy with the hair do, my sister and I hung out in the kitchen with Mr. Atkins. He was a master at making dollar-sized pancakes, the only item on the menu when we came to
