the Theology of Weeds

the Theology of Weeds

As I was pulling up weeds, doing a little pruning and planting pots of annuals, I thought about all of the spiritual lessons I have learned over the years in the garden.  Weeds have taught me a lot.

Come Holy Spirit!

Come Holy Spirit!

This Sunday is Pentecost, the great celebration of the Church when we “remember” the descent of the Holy Spirit on the Apostles 50 days after Easter as they were huddled in the Upper Room.  I think a close look at the prayers for Mass makes clear that we are “remembering” in the Biblical sense of the word.

We are pilgrims, this is not our native land

We are pilgrims, this is not our native land

This Sunday’s second reading from the first letter of Peter reminds us to “conduct ourselves with reverence during the time of sojourning. . . realizing that you have been ransomed . . . with the precious blood of Christ.” (1 Peter 1: 17-19)
