Mindful of my imperfections, seeking to know Truth more deeply and to live Love more fully.

Quid sum miser tunc dicturus? Quem patronum rogaturus? Cum vix iustus sit securus?
Recordare, Iesu pie, Quod sum causa tuae viae: Ne me perdas illa die...

The media missed the story

They were focused on glamour and power.

They were only interested in news items that fit into their narrative.

And so they, and nearly everyone else in the world in those days, missed the most important event of all time.

So do many, many people today, chasing after glamour and feel-good philosophies.

It is our job to report this event, as Saint Paul reminds us in today’s first reading (1 Corinthians 1:17-25).

Jews demand signs
and Greeks look for wisdom,
but we proclaim Christ crucified,
a stumbling block to Jews
and foolishness to Gentiles,
but to those who are called,
Jews and Greeks alike,
Christ the power of God
nd the wisdom of God.

For the foolishness of God
is wiser than human wisdom,
and the weakness of God
is stronger than human strength.
