  • Five Remedies for Sorrow from St. Thomas Aquinas
    Post by Msgr. Charles Pope , 4/19/2016

    “Some of you who follow me on Facebook know that I just lost a beloved pet, Daniel, our rectory cat. Losing a pet is not to be equated with losing a spouse, sibling, or friend, but it remains a painful loss. Part of the reason for this, I am convinced, is that we cannot communicate with animals as we do with one another. We cannot know what they are experiencing “inside” and so cannot reassure them or be reassured by them that they are still well despite the suffering that dying brings. We have to make decisions for them without really knowing much about what they are experiencing. At any rate, Daniel’s journey and sufferings are over. Mine will linger a little longer, but I am well and content that we did what we could for him. ... ”

    “A big problem today is that of rampant boredom. One would think, with all the diversions available to us, we would be one of the least bored generations in history.

  • The Passion of Anger and the ?Miserable Truce? of the Modern Age
    Post by Msgr. Charles Pope , 4/11/2016

    “Here in the Western world, we live in a culture that tends to treat anger as taboo. A common tactic to unsettle an opponent today is to accuse him or her of being angry. It is amazing how easily humiliated and/or defensive an adversary can become in response to such an accusation. Yes, it is remarkable how quickly the one accused of anger can feel the need to resort to denials such as these: ... ”

  • Is Your Spiritual Life Like a Sailboat or a Motorboat?
    Post by Msgr. Charles Pope , 3/31/2016

    “When I was about 10 years old I took some sailing lessons, and then did so again when I was in my early 30s.

    Post by Msgr. Charles Pope , 3/29/2016

    “The recent death of Mother Angelica provoked the expected saddness at the passing of such a great woman. Indeed, her vivacious and plain-spoken presence has long been missed during these years of her declining health. She called this her time of purgatory and purification. In an extraordinary grace, the Lord called her at 5:00 PM on Easter Sunday, likely the very time at which He was making His first appearances to His disciples at Emmaus and in Jersalem. ... ”
