Fr. Glenn: Growing Thicker Skins

By Fr. Glenn Jones:

I’ve recently been watching a historical fiction series set in the 1200s about conflicts—internecine and otherwise—of a tribal group in the western Asian region—constant wars and conquests, treachery and intrigue.  Being a regionally-produced series, it’s very interesting to observe the emphasis on various ways local cultural emphases and perceptions differ from our own.  But one thing that strikes starkly is the constant theme of revenge—every insult, backstab or perceived slight eliciting a nefarious plot to “get even”… often involving the “if he brings a knife,


Fr. Glenn: Surrendering

By Fr. Glenn Jones

Likely you’ve noticed that there sure is a lot of surrendering these days … and so unnecessarily (not to mention insincerely), too. Even the comics often ridicule the tendency. One makes an innocent comment on social media or in a speech or even simply in daily conversation, and can be immediately excoriated across the chasm of electronic insulation. Before you know it, the initial commentator is backpedaling as fast as their little fingers can type, almost to apologize for existing.

Fr. Glenn: The Goldilocks Syndrome

By Fr. Glenn Jones:

Often noted nowadays is the lack of class or even courtesy in civil(?) discourse—never more evident than during election seasons. Wild accusations abound, and commentators seem to vie in outdoing one another in vulgarity, as if that leads a greater credence to their argument rather than the reverse. But perhaps most evident is the propensity to disregard anyone’s position or argument other than one’s own, refusing to even listen to counterargument. We like to proclaim ourselves as open-minded, but are we really?

Unlike Goldilocks in the children’s bedtime story, many
