Many centuries ago, there lived a man by the name of Barnaby. He was a juggler who lived from day to day on the small donations he received. He went from town to town and he would take knives or balls and juggle them. And that is all that he could do. He felt embarrassed over his lack of talent. He almost felt totally useless. People in the town in which he juggled would be involved in their business work. Some would run small little shops. Some were doctors and teachers. And Barnaby would see all these people working every day and be more discouraged with each passing day. Continue reading “Our Lady’s Juggler”

Often when we meet in the family we call to mind experiences we have shared. This can be more than mere reminiscence; sometimes bringing to mind really takes us back into the the concrete experience we share – and that could mean tears and laughter. At holy Mass we use the word commemorate when we bring to mind the gift of the Eucharist at the Last Supper, the grace of salvation remembering Christ died for us to rise to new life and we expect the promised gift of His Spirit at Pentecost. Our faith tells us that the words we say bring about a real change and we come into the presence of the events we bring to mind – Christ’s Body and Blood given for the life of many. We k look forward to meeting you there.
Covenant of Love with God the Father as Goal
