A belated (and certainly inadequate) nod of thanks and admiration goes to our first responders. Friday the 13th was truly a hard and trying day for them as they responded to the death of an infant in that early morning. Thank you, brave lads and lasses, for your service to that family, and daily to our community.  Only Heaven can count the sorrows that each of you have alleviated or prevented over the years of your service.

Such careers as first responder (police, firefighter, EMT, etc.) … military, nurse, doctor,

I'd rather have ten people that want God than 10,000 people who want to play church. –Leonard Ravenhill
 
October has been celebrated as Pastor Appreciation Month since 1992. During that time, churches and congregants will show their appreciation for their clergy through cards, gifts, and assortments of Kit Kats and Dr. Pepper. For more traditional churches, there will be the ever-famous pot-luck. (In New Mexico, this can easily be turned into a green chili themed cook-off! Praise God!)
 
The idea comes from passages such as

“Look and see if there is any sorrow like my sorrow ... I weep; my eyes flow with tears…” (Lamentations 1:12)

“A voice is heard … lamentation and bitter weeping. [She] is weeping for her child; she refused to be comforted for her child, because she is no more.”  (cf., Jeremiah 31:15)

Few scripture verses better capture the agony of parents who have lost a child to the scourge of death, which came Friday to a beautiful 27-day-old angel who stretched her wings and flew back to God … “the silver cord is snapped ... and

The Las Vegas shooting, of course, dominated the news this week, as tragedies often do. Remembering that massacre, it’s timely that the Gospel that we read at our Catholic Mass this weekend is the parable of the vineyard owner and the rebellious tenants (Matthew 21:33-43). One very poignant verse in that Gospel passage comes when the owner had finished preparing his vineyard, and “…he leased it to tenants and went on a journey”—a seemingly almost offhand remark, but it speaks volumes about our world.

There was no respect for youth when I was young, and now that I am old, there is no respect for age — I missed it coming and going.  – J.B. Priestly
 
I am definitely a Generation X’er. I grew up as a latchkey kid, with divorced parents, who watched actual music videos on MTV, and knew how to tweak the TV enough to watch Showtime after dark. My mother is part of the Silent Generation. She is a firm believer in “waste not, want not,” simple living, and traditional values.
 
My father, on the other hand, is a bit harder

You may remember the movie “Letters from Iwo Jima” that came out about 10 years ago. “Letters” is fairly unique (in American cinema, at least) in telling the story of that World War II battle from a Japanese point of view.
