Fr. Glenn: The Question

on October 6, 2019 - 9:16am

By Fr. Glenn Jones

If there was [absolutely] nothing, whence came anything at all? If nothing existed, whence came existence? If all things have a source, from what does the first thing come?

Ooooo … the paradoxical question that at some time occupies musing minds of all. In fact, one of the great questions driving science itself. Even ancient philosophers like Plato and the pre-Socratics considered that question, formulating rudimentary ideas of atoms and “prime matter”—unformed “stuff” (by analogy think of modeling clay) which composed materiality. 

Big bangs, multiverses, and who knows

An Open Book: Day Of Remembrance

Los Alamos

The anniversary of my father’s passing, or Yahrzeit in Yiddish, is a date that I have to track carefully on the Jewish calendar. On this modified lunar calendar, the observance of June 6, 2009 changes a few days forward or backward each year, and I have to look it up regularly.

But for my mother’s Yahrzeit, there is no tracking required.

Fr. Glenn: Caring For Lazarus

on September 29, 2019 - 7:47am

By Fr. Glenn Jones

First responders might find it interesting (hopefully edifying) to know that today (September 29) is the annual Catholic day for the commemoration of the archangels mentioned in scripture:  Michael, Gabriel and (in the Catholic and Orthodox scriptures) Raphael. Michael, of course, figures prominently in the book of Revelation as leader of angels in the depiction of the defeat of “the dragon” (Satan). Gabriel is in the Gospel of Luke and the prophet Daniel. And, finally, Raphael is a primary character in the book of Tobit.
