Fr. Glenn: Learning From Others

By Fr. Glenn Jones

An interesting—and edifying—evening.

Here in the Archdiocese of Santa Fe—as in many other dioceses around the U.S.—we have quite a number of non-native-born priests—from Vietnam, Mexico and Latin America, Spain, and Africa, to name just a few places of origin (not even to mention myself, originally from Texas, which sort of counts. And, by the way: I ain’t got no accent; it’s y’all that talk funny! 😉

Anyway … I attended a dinner hosted by our Nigerian priests the other evening, and a most enjoyable evening it was. It wasn’t so much the food they had prepared (though it was quite

Fr. Glenn: A Useful Servant

By Fr. Glenn Jones

During this time of year, in preparation for Christmas we Catholics read in Mass the Gospels referring to John the Baptist, who preached two major themes: repentance from evil, and producing good fruits of a good life—works of charity. Most Christians believe that without repentance, our good works have little spiritual effect … for doing evil is acting against (rejecting) the Good—i.e., the will of God—and consequently in some degree separates us from God—from Christ—who teaches us: “He who abides in me, and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do
