Misplaced (or Lost) Zeal

What are you zealous for? Many people can be very zealous about so many different things….political candidates, sports teams, etc. In the 2008 election I worked very “zealously” for a candidate. On one occasion me and another lady stood on a busy corner for two hours, during rush hour holding our candidate’s sign, jumping up …

A Prophet In Her Own Mind

I’m back in time…May 2001 to be exact; I’m remembering when me and friend Barbara D. met on the plaza in front of Cornell University’s student union.

Spoken as part of the ritual of the mass, they were spoken every Sunday and were a spiritual touchstone for a young girl growing up in …

Deep Calls to Deep

The ocean is a vast, beautiful, fearsome, sometimes violent and always awesome thing. I am always enthralled by underwater images captured on film or video. The cornucopia of creatures and plant life is dizzying to behold. I have also seen films of storms of sea and shook in my shoes at the thought of being …

Leaping into Faith

Isn’t it amazing how most of us plod along through our lives ascribing importance to so many things that are not important at all?;at least not important in the grand scheme of things. As a child I had an intense love for Jesus. Then I “grew up” and the pull of the world seduced me …
