Fr. Glenn: The Best Policy

When I was in the Marines, one trait that was pounded into our “brain housing groups” was the virtue of integrity.

Integrity…honesty…truthfulness…trustworthiness; these are essential especially in combat situations because lives are on the line, and so these virtues were insisted upon also in training and daily life. Even in training situations, if someone tries to cover a fault or failure by lying, it could cascade quickly into losing Marines.

All who are skilled among you are to come and make everything the LORD has commanded. (Exodus 35:10 NIV)

I received a gift this week from a local artisan. I was looking for a functional and elegant communion goblet; something nice that also said “New Mexico” with a hint of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. The cottonwood goblet that he made was absolutely perfect. Upon seeing it, it became quite obvious to me that this person had a gift that many of us do not have.

Fr. Glenn: Guilty!

You know … guilt gets quite the bad rap. And “sin”? Hooo-boy! ... don’t even bring THAT one up. That’ll make you persona non grata even in many Christian circles these days. But what IS sin? ... that bugaboo word that even Christians in our day often disdain to utter? It is a short sharp word often ridiculed … yet certainly not by Jesus and the apostles, who spoke of sin often. 

For us Christians, sin can be simply defined primarily as the purposeful departure from the will and teaching of God, and therefore from the

Pastor Granillo: Healing Hatred

All my friends are heathens, take it slow

Wait for them to ask you who you know

Please don't make any sudden moves

You don't know the half of the abuse – 21 Pilots, “Heathen”

Every person in this world has a narrative. We all have a story about who we are, where we came from, and what we have gone through to get to where we are. Each person would be rightfully hurt if another were to presume what their story was, or presume where they come from or what they have been through.

Fr. Glenn: One People Under God

This last week we were treated to yet another example of the truth of scripture—that “there is nothing new under the sun.” (Ecclesiastes 1:9) The wall-to-wall coverage about the Charlottesville and subsequent protests and counter-protests reminded of the riots of the 60’s and 70’s. Sigh. Perhaps the birthing pains of eventually moving toward a more civilized society, we can only hope.

Predictably, there were myriad reactions over the Charlottesville protests and events.
