Second Sunday in Easter- Fr. Chris- April 23, 2017

Easter 2 April 23, 2017 David Sedaris is an American humorist known for his works in the New Yorker as well as his numerous books. In one short story in his novel, Me Talk Pretty One Day, David amusingly tells of his struggles as a 41-year-old returning to school to learn French while living in Paris. His classmates are people from all over the world from different cultures, backgrounds, and languages. Here is an excerpt from the chapter “Jesus Shaves”: It was my second month of French class, and the teacher was leading us in an exercise…Printed in our textbooks was a list of major holidays alongside a scattered arrangement of photos depicting French people in the act of celebration. The object was to match the holiday with the corresponding picture. Normally, when working from the book, it was my habit to tune out my fellow students and scout ahead, […]

Easter Sunday- Fr. Chris- April 16, 2017

Easter Sunday April 16, 2017 Suddenly Jesus met them and said, “Greetings!” And they came to him, took hold of his feet, and worshiped him. Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid; go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee; there they will see me.” It was Friday afternoon at the end of a long week. I walked down the hall of the continued care facility in the Washington DC area where I was serving as a chaplain. My thoughts were with the weekend as I turned towards the stairs to leave. Then I saw her eyes. They were eyes that cried out for contact, for human interaction, for community. A part of me was tempted to just nod, smile, and keep walking… after all I was off the clock. Yet, the desire to respond to those pleading eyes overcame my desire to leave. As I entered […]

Fifth Sunday in Lent- Deacon Gill- April 2, 2017

Lent 5 April 2, 2017 Four years ago Rod and I visited Peru. Our first stop was in Lima where we visited, among lots of other places, the Saint Francis Monastery. It is two blocks away from the President’s Palace and right in the heart of historic Lima. The Monastery of San Francisco is a colonial church dating back to the 18th Century. At ground level you’ll find a library of more than 25,000 antique texts, including the first Spanish dictionary published by the Royal Spanish Academy and a Holy Bible from 1571. But it is what lies beneath that draws so many visitors. Lima’s first cemetery was the catacombs below the monastery. The catacombs remained in use until 1808 when a city cemetery outside of Lima was founded. And  it wasn’t until 1943 that the catacombs were rediscovered. It is estimated to contain 70,000 burials. Not complete skeletons but […]
