GOD WITH US December 18, 2016 The Godfather One comment By Paul Koch – We don’t often spend much time talking or ever thinking all that much about Joseph. His story is an incredible story. His call to be the protector and provider for the blessed mother of our Lord gives us a powerful image of Christian faithfulness and strength of character. Instead of abandoning Mary when he learns that she is with child, he lovingly cares for her, protects her, and watches over the...

A JAGGED CONTENTION: ADVENT WAITING December 17, 2016 A Jagged Contention One comment “Frankly, any idea of planning our own lives is out.

Then one stands face to face with his creator and judge, who has come...

DO YOU HEAR THEIR SHOUTS? November 27, 2016 The Godfather By Paul Koch – When you think of the arrival of our Lord on that first Christmas in the little town of Bethlehem, you have to admit that He arrived with quite a bang. I mean, sure, He was born in a manger and in the poorest of poor conditions, but the fanfare that surrounded this arrival is legendary. Shepherds tending their flocks are greeted by an angel proclaiming good news of a great joy. If that wasn’t...

YOUR FAITH HAS MADE YOU WELL November 24, 2016 The Godfather Leave a comment By Paul Koch – This day is truly a wonderful day. It is a day of family and friends, a day of food and football, a day where everyone gets a little time off from their usual grind and just stops in order to give thanks. And though our days of innocent bliss from our childhood have grown cold, though we no longer want to dress up like puritan settlers or native Americans, we still find value in a...
