Dear brothers and sisters,

            During this series, we’ve been talking about how life is a little better when we have breathing room.  God has no limits, but we do.  When we don’t have breathing room, we become very self-centered and self-focused.  Our culture co...

Dear brothers and sisters,

                Breathing Room is the gap between how we are living our lives on a daily, consistent basis, and our limits.  We need to live with breathing room in order to be followers of Jesus Christ, because otherwise we tend to become self...

        Breathing Room is the space, the gap, the margin between where we’re living our lives, and our limits.  We all have limits; nothing is impossible for God, but some things are impossible for us, and we live within our limits.  As we come to understand how to liv...

             Today’s gospel reading is striking.  Sometimes when we read the Gospel stories, we can easily imagine the vocal undertone of Jesus’ words.  Like any other person, sometimes his voice would have been gentle and calm, and sometimes it would have been tense....

Dear brothers and sisters,

                  Jesus speaks in today’s Gospel (Luke 12:35-48) is about vigilance, and this part of Jesus’ discourse balances out what he said a few verses earlier about not worrying.  In those verses (12:22-34) he instructed his listeners n...

Dear brothers and sisters,

In today’s Gospel, Jesus is approached by a man who asks him “Teacher, tell my brother to share the inheritance with me” (Luke 12:13).  At first glance, Jesus’ response to this man’s request seems strange.  The man has a real problem: his brot...

Dear brothers and sisters,

                  We’re celebrating the 17th Sunday in Ordinary Time – but for a Christian, there is no such thing as “ordinary” time.  G.K. Chesterton reportedly affirmed that being a Christian changes everything – even the way you brush your...
