Fr. Glenn: Free To Be Whom We Will To Be

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.

Cute joke in the e-mail the other day: 

A priest waited in line to fill his car with gas just before a long holiday weekend, but there were many cars ahead of him. Finally, an attendant motioned him toward a vacant pump. “Father," said the young man, “I'm so sorry about the delay. It seems as if everyone waits until the last minute to get ready for a long trip.” The priest chuckled, “I know what you mean. It's the same in my business.”

Ah, time, precious time.

Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective. James 5:16 (NIV)
 
I have heard tales that occasionally, in a relationship, a person can suddenly find that they are the object of anger or frustration and not know why. You probably know exactly what I’m talking about. You walk in and you immediately sense the tension in the air.
