Father and Son

Priorities

A child arrived the other day… He came to the world in the usual way. But there were planes to catch and bills to pay… He learned to walk while I was away. And he was talking before I knew it. And as he grew, he’d say, “I’m gonna be like you…” My son turned […]

Out of Order

Out Of Order?

Mother:  “You can’t get any popcorn. The machine is out of order. See — there’s a sign on the machine!” But he didn’t understand. After all, he had the desire, and he had the money and he could see the popcorn inside the machine. And yet, somehow, somewhere, something was wrong, because he could not […]

Trust

As he lay on his hospital deathbed in Melbourne, an Australian Marist Brother told his gathered friends and relatives the story of his spirituality. It came from a personal experience he had a few years ago, when he met the “Flying Rodleighs” after a circus performance in Freiburgh, Germany. He told them: “One day I […]

How Do You Carry Your Loads

How Do You Carry Your Loads?

I compare the troubles which we have to undergo in the course of the year to a great bundle of sticks, far too large for us to lift. But God does not require us to carry the whole at once. He mercifully unties the bundle, and gives us first one stick, which we are to […]

Which Attitude Do I Have To Wear Today?

The differences in human life depend, for the most part, not on what people do, but upon the meaning and purpose of their acts. All are born, all die, all lose their loved ones, nearly all marry and nearly all work, but the significance of these acts may vary enormously. The same physical act may […]

How Do You Worship?

I worship best when I’m climbing a mountain, or walking along a river, or sitting at the edge of a lake, for then all of God’s glory is before me and about me; it all becomes a part of me as my senses expand to accept it all. There always comes a moment of exultation […]

Youth Reflections

Youth

Youth is not a time of life; it is a state of mind; it is not a matter of rosy cheeks, red lips and supple knees; it is a matter of the will, a quality of the imagination, a vigor of the emotions; it is the freshness of the deep springs of life. Youth means […]

Who Got Carried Away?

Two monks were once traveling together down a muddy road. A heavy rain was falling. Coming around the bend, they met a lovely girl in a silk kimono and sash, unable to cross the intersection. “Come on, girl,” said the first monk. Lifting her in his arms, he carried her over the mud. The second […]

Reflections on Compassion Two monks were washing their bowls in the river when they noticed a scorpion that was drowning. One monk immediately scooped it up and set it upon the bank. In the process he was stung. He went back to washing his bowl and again the scorpion fell in. The monk saved the […]

Points of View

On Respecting Ones Opinion Two flies were strolling along the ceiling of an apartment. “You know”, remarked the first fly, “humans are so silly”. “People are silly?” replied the second fly. “How do you figure that?” The first fly shrugged his wings. “Just take a look,” he said. “They spend good money building a nice […]

Leap of Faith

Faith Without Works

Reflections on Taking the Action Smitty was hard-headed, to put it mildly.  When a flood hit the area, he climbed to his roof.  A rescue boat came by but Smitty called back to their offer of help: “No, thanks. I have faith in the Lord.  He will save me. The waves came higher and Smitty […]
