Sweet Corn Chowder and Friday Suppers

For me, this soup is the ultimate in comfort food. It is smooth and creamy, heavy on the carbs and sweetened by the corn. My grandmother also liked it for its ease of preparation—especially on meatless Fridays. When I was a young adult and still residing at my widowed grandmother’s home, we shared busy though [Read More…]

Rule of St. Benedict and Prayer for Priests

Today’s reading in the Rule of St. Benedict states for the monastery Abbott:   Let him who know, then, that he who has undertaken the government of souls must prepare himself to render an account of them…he may be sure beyond a doubt that on Judgment Day he will have to give to the Lord an [Read More…]

Prayers and Praise Rose and Fell

Sitting in my oratory, I finished the Salve Regina prayer. I then looked from the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe out the window at a gray winter’s morning. I felt heavy that morning, down, and I didn’t know why. Kissing the blue millefiori rosary in my hand, I returned it to the porcelain dish, [Read More…]

Fighting Depression with a Winter’s Soup

As an avid vegetable gardener I have often kept a root cellar, or something similar, for storing harvested produce. In one house it was literally a hand dug portion of the basements exposed to tree roots and in another a fieldstone basement. Putting food by just seems like a natural progression for those of us [Read More…]

Perseverance in Seminarians, Thursday’s Prayer for Priests

  Lord Jesus, once you called the first disciples in order to make them fishers of men.  Continue to let resound today your sweet invitation:  “Come and follow Me.” Grant to young men the grace of responding promptly to your voice. Sustain our bishops, priests and consecrated souls in their apostolic work.  Give perseverance to [Read More…]

Who has the Map?

Journeys—Mary and Joseph’s, the wise men, Jesus’ cousin John, and Jesus himself. In the past few weeks everybody we read about in the Bible is on a journey following a path—and probably prayed to remain watchful on a course laden with misdirection. I was 28 in 1982. This picture was taken while we waited at the [Read More…]

Fertility God Missing the Mark

He was a dear friend from college and delightfully quirky. He was six foot eight, brilliant, perceptive, with a quick and witty sense of humor, and never disrespectful. He was the gentlest of souls and a devout Catholic of Polish descent. I liked to think he saw me as a little sister. Even though I [Read More…]

A Virgin’s Fear

The angel appeared and said “Do not be afraid…” Some heavenly being popped up in front of me, I’d need calming down too! These words were spoken to Zechariah in Luke 1:13; and a few months later to Mary, Luke 1:30. Let’s never mind about St. John the Baptist’s father.  Consider only Mary for a [Read More…]
