    The Eucharist—Corpus Christi Procession, Churchill Downs, Louisville, Kentucky

    June can be very hot especially if you are an Altar boy wearing a wool cassock in the sun at a Corpus Christi procession. We had to be perfectly still in our kneeling. It was very hot and humid. The Nuns saw to it that there was no movement or talking except for singing or saying prayers. The temperature had to be 99 degrees! Then it happened—the server to my right and one row away fell face down in the infield and did not move! He was immediately taken away for treatment. I remember thinking what the heck are we doing here anyway? My 10 year old mind thought what is the big deal?

    Father Giani Baggio, C.S. caused me to think of this during his homily last Sunday at St. Pauls. Of course “the big deal” was and is the Eucharist. Now I have a different view and understanding of Corpus Christi and the presence of Christ. Taking an hour each week to spend in Adoration with God is something I cherish and when It is not possible to be there I am disappointed. My time in Adoration is an opportunity to be in the real presence of God and The Holy Trinity. I guard those moments. I cherish those moments.

  • It takes an Archdiocese

     With the addition of the 17 men who were ordained by Archbishop Naumann in June 2017, we now have 40 permanent deacons in active ministry serving the Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas.

     We have at least one deacon serving in 30 of our parishes, and even more our deacons are making their presence—and in a deeper sense the Church’s presence—felt in prisons and jails, hospitals and nursing homes, and really anywhere the mercy of God is most needed. We are proud of the growth of the diaconate in the Archdiocese, and I’ve frequently heard the Archbishop praise our formation program.

     As I reflect on all this, I truly believe that the growth of the diaconate in our Archdiocese is a singular grace given to us at this time. It also reflects the gifts of our Archdiocese at this moment in our local Church’s history.

  • Reflection - The breaking of the bread

    Their eyes were opened and they recognized him. (Luke 24:31).

     It had been a long day of walking, but Cleopas and his friend wanted more time with their traveling companion. The mysterious stranger seemed ignorant of the turmoil of the past few days, but he could explain the Scriptures like no one they had ever heard before. Wanting to hear more, they urged, “Stay with us” (Luke 24:29). So he stayed and shared a meal. Then, with a simple gesture and a simple prayer, he broke bread and gave it to them. And suddenly, their eyes were opened: they recognized their broken Lord, their risen Lord.
