Cuando era un estudiante universitario decidí que el tiempo no me gobernaría. Me negué a usar un reloj y tampoco tenía un celular. Sorprendentemente, nunca llegué tarde a donde tenía que ir. Aprendí a estar atento a las personas y actividades que me rodeaban para determinar el paso del tiempo. Desarrollé un reloj interno bastante preciso. A pesar de mi deseo de rebelarme contra el tiempo, los relojes seguían marchando y el mundo seguía girando alrededor del sol. Aprendí la… Read more

When I was in college I decided that I would not be ruled by time.  I refused to wear a watch.  I did not have a cell phone.  Amazingly, I was never late to wherever I needed to go.  I learned to be attentive to people and activities around me to determine the passage of time.  I developed a fairly accurate internal clock.  Despite my desire to rebel against time, clocks kept ticking and the world kept revolving around the… Read more

Recuerdo una vez escuchar a mi abuelo decir, “cuanto más uno habla, más oportunidad hay de decir tonterías”. Esto es muy cierto, pienso que es mejor escuchar más y hablar menos. Lamentablemente en la actualidad todos hablan, pero pocos escuchan. Las vías para uno expresarse se han multiplicado en estas últimas décadas, y me atrevo a decir que hay tanta información en el internet que una serie de vidas no serían suficientes para leer todo. Aunque millones de personas viven… Read more

  I recall my grandfather say once, “the more someone speaks the more likely he or she will say something dumb.”  I agree with him.  It is always better to listen more and to speak less.  Unfortunately today in society everyone speaks, but not many listen.  The number of outlets to express opinions has rapidly multiplied in the last few decades – I venture to say that the internet has so much information that several lifetimes would not be enough… Read more

Pareciese como si marzo del 2020 fue hace ya muchísimo tiempo. Las calles del centro de Savannah estaban vacías. No había turistas, ni peatones, y todos los lugares de estacionamiento estaban disponibles. La mayoría de los negocios estaban cerrados, excepto la farmacia y algunas cafeterías. El 27 de marzo el Papa Francisco ingresó a la Plaza de San Pedro mientras esta estaba vacía y oscura para un servicio especial de oración, uno que cautivó y consoló a millones de almas… Read more

A medida que se acerca la fecha para entregar este artículo para publicación, los resultados oficiales de las elecciones presidenciales de los Estados Unidos aún no se han finalizado. Durante cuarenta y ocho horas me he sentido impaciente con el deseo de que la espera llegue a su término y un rápido desplazamiento por las redes sociales muestra que muchos comparten mis sentimientos. La paciencia es una virtud difícil de ejercitar, especialmente en la modernidad cuando nos hemos acostumbrado a… Read more

As my deadline to submit this article approaches, the official results of the presidential election have not yet been finalized.  For forty-eight hours I have felt impatient with a desire for things to unravel to their end whatever that may be, and a quick scroll through social media shows that I am not alone.  Patience is a virtue difficult to exercise, especially in modernity when we have grown used to immediate responses and results.  The word patience comes from the… Read more

November 10, 2020 The report on ex-Cardinal and ex-Priest Theodore McCarrick was released this morning by the Holy See. While it will take time to read it with appropriate thoroughness, please know that I am praying for his victims and for all of those who have been hurt by the Church and her ministers through action or inaction. This report represents a darkness in the history of the Church, and is a reminder to those of us charged with shepherding the flock… Read more

Father Ubald survived the 1994 Rwandan Genocide. He played an instrumental role in the healing process of the country once the genocide ended. He was led by the Holy Spirit to pray with people and to bless them with Jesus truly present in the Blessed Sacrament.  He began to see Jesus work miracles in his midst. For the past few years, he has led The Secret of Peace, a retreat center in southwestern Rwanda where the faithful gather to pray… Read more

Archbishop Viganò, former Apostolic Nuncio to the United States, has written a new letter addressed to “American Catholics and to all Americans of good will.”  It was published by The Remnant Newspaper on November 4, 2020. I have commented on Viganò’s letters before, and even speculated that these letters may be written by someone else who is deeply invested in U.S. politics.  I understand that the Archbishop speaks English very well, and has always had a keen interest in U.S. politics. … Read more
