Fr. Glenn: Long Odds

on April 7, 2019 - 9:24am

By Fr. Glenn Jones

This evening … a dead body lies in the street just below. To one side the blue compact car—a Honda, I think—its hood laying several feet away. A little farther up … a mangled motorcycle, almost unrecognizable … bits of mechanical and fiberglass detritus strewn about for yards around. Lomas Boulevard is blocked and taped off … police milling about, apparently waiting for investigators. Coroners. Official vehicles come and go. To the south a church … the normally-scheduled Mass being celebrated within.

Fr. Glenn: Lost And Found

on March 31, 2019 - 8:07am

By Fr. Glenn Jones

“I need more material.”

No … that’s not me speaking about this column, but rather something the world seems to say perpetually … as in “materialism”. “I need more stuff!” … regardless of the fact that the desire for more “stuff” never seems to satisfy, but rather feeds the desire ever more … rather a vicious circle.

It takes a strong and wise person to realize the negative effects of unbridled material desires. That hit home again this weekend in the Catholic Mass as we read the parable of the Prodigal Son … alternately called “The Loving Father”. 

Most people know that

Immaculee Ilibagiza

IHM News:

On Friday, April 5 and Saturday, April 6, Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church will host guest speaker Immaculee Ilibagiza, author of the New York Times Bestseller “Left to Tell”.

When the Rwandan genocide began in 1994, Immaculee’s father sent her to hide in the home of a local pastor. Huddled in a 3 by 4 foot bathroom with seven other women for three months, they were unable to speak to each other lest they be heard. They had to take turns standing up in the cramped space.

Turning to prayer to escape the anger, resentment and hate that was building up

Fr. Glenn: Elusive Truth

on March 24, 2019 - 7:47am

Fr. Glenn Jones

One of the more unpleasant aspects of my new job for the Archdiocese of Santa Fe is being the referee of sorts between differing parties—trying to liberate truth from the shackles of the two adversarial positions. For the casual observer that may sound fairly simply, but the initiated can assure you that it is not.

One of the complicating aspects which worms its way into the proceedings is nefarious pride—not pride such as a parent might have at the success of a child, but rather the self-interested and defensive pride which obscures truth, preventing reconciliation and the

By Fr. Glenn Jones

Have you noticed these days that, in a meeting or gathering, people will often not let a speaker finish his thought before interjecting with some objection or observation? It’s quite rude ... to the point that, if in charge of the meeting, I find it necessary to begin by requesting people to wait to be recognized before speaking—sort of an impromptu partial imposition of “Robert’s Rules of Order”.

One of the noticeable benefits of such order is that meetings are shorter.
