Dividends for Life

Several years ago, I was driving down a local highway and glanced at a business advertisement which read, “Often Replicated, Never Duplicated.”  This memorable phrase stuck in my mind since then, but not in the context for that particular business.  Rather, it brings to mind my belief in our nation’s Catholic schools. Since 1810, parishes […]

We Over Me

I pray that each of you is enjoying God’s grace and peace during these final days of summer. By the very nature of our existence, Catholic schools are different than public and charter school systems. Christ is the purpose of our school and the reason for its existence. Each year, as the spiritual leader of our […]

 

Alleluia! He Is Risen! Alleluia!

Friends of Blessed Sacrament, One of my favorite Easter stories is a passage illustrating the Risen Christ’s appearance on the road to Emmaus.  Feeling defeated, lonely, confused and scared, the two disciples become amazed at the one man who does not appear to know “of the things that have taken place” in Jerusalem. Once they […]
