The great question that has never been answered and which I have not been able to answer despite my thirty years of research into the feminine soul, is "What does a woman want?"

St. James the Elder, Apostle

Mark 10:35-45, Acts 11:27--12:5

In the name of the Father and of the + Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Today is St. James the Elder. He is sometimes referred to as St. James the Greater or St. James Major; this has nothing to do with his stature among the disciples—though he was one of the three that were part of the inner circle of disciples—he was simply the older of the two disciples named James. He was John's older brother, a fisherman like Peter and once his partner in the fishing business before giving everything up and following Jesus.

Beyond that and despite his place in Jesus' inner circle, little is written of him besides what we heard today. So, for time and eternity, St. James the Elder day has been the day when is read how he and his brother brazenly asked to sit as Jesus' right and left in glory, and Jesus' response to the brothers. Right off the bat this should tell us that this day is not about James, the great faith he had, nor even how great a man he was, any of this being true or not. No, this day is about Jesus.

Eighth Sunday after Pentecost

Luke 10:38-42

In the name of the Father and of the + Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

It was said on Wednesday night that if we had a scheduled day, we would be able to get a lot more done in a day. Whether or not that could be the case, it is an indication that we are a people with something to do at just about every hour of the day. We barely have time to sleep these days. It seems, and it just may be the case, that we are busy people, busier than ever.

Seventh Sunday after Pentecost

Luke 10:25-37

In the name of the Father and of the + Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

"Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?", the lawyer asks. It's an age old question, isn't it? Oh, the forms always change, but the question is always the same. "What must I do to be saved?" "What can be done to get to heaven?" "What can I do to transcend this mortal coil?" Every one of them seeks a way to move from this life to the afterlife, however that is defined by the one doing the asking or redefined by the one doing the answering. "What can I do to be rewarded with a good afterlife?"

She's Alive!

and she reports on the traffic in Denver

I speak of none other than Amelia Earhart. I have to wonder...why would a parent do this? Oh well, too bad she's not our "Eye in the Sky."
