Last evening I was able to be part of the Rite of Admission to Candidacy for Holy Orders for Andrew Sullivan, who is a first year theologian for our diocese and studying at Kenrick-Glennon Seminary in St. Louis.
As I was preparing for the men’s retreat several weekends ago in Timber Lake, I came across this phrase: “no Bible, no breakfast; no Bible, no bed” by Fr. Larry Richards.
During the men’s retreat, one of the ranchers came up to me and said, “Fr. Mark, I am not sure I have ever heard God speak to me. I did my homework assignment last night but nothing really happened.”
On Tuesday we celebrated the memorial for St. Kateri Tekakwitha. I was struck by how generous Kateri was in her relationship with Jesus.
