15th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Like Nothing We Would Expect
It is important for us to understand that the Kingdom of God is not about separating ourselves from everything the world throws in front of us. It's about dealing with evil, and living our lives alongside it, in the middle of it and in spite of it.   It is as close to us as our dearest friend, or our worst enemy; it touches us in our greatest joys and in our deepest sorrow. And it is never farther away than our next breath, or sigh, or tear, or burst of laughter.

Pat Callahan's Addendum

Book for Pat 1

 "I thought that those who read my letter to friends and family at the time of my 1984 resignation from clerical ministry in the July/August CORPUS REPORTS would enjoy the HAGAR cartoon that I included on the title page along with a personal message. I think humor has been essential to carrying me through many life challenges and was an important part of introducing my somewhat heavy treatise. I would also add a correction to a typo I made in submitting the text. I spent 15 years of active ministry as a priest of the Seattle Archdiocese with 7 as associate pastor and 8 as pastor of 2 large parishes....not 25. I hope sharing my story will prompt others to submit theirs to Tony Steger & Maxine Gilmeister at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. For those who would like a digital copy of my "farewell address" send me an email request to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

14th Sunday in Ordinary Times

Seeds and Good Ground
Having "good ground" really means being open to and aware of the presence of God. It means letting go of so many of the thoughts and cares that seem so important, and making room for the power and love of God.  The seed may never take root, because we become arid with worry; it may be choked to death by our worldly and selfish concerns. It may be scattered to the winds by the relentless whirlwind of activity that we engage in. Only in the good ground of a person who lives each day in faith and love will the seed of God's Word bring forth the harvest of holiness and happiness that He intends.

Too Many Birthdays

So I'm sitting here sipping a cup of Joe at the Warm Puppy Cafe in Santa Rosa. From the large picture windows in the cafe, I can watch kids learning to skate in the ice arena. One little guy in a blue sweatshirt (he looks about 6 or 7 years-old) catches my eye when he does a whallopolozza of a belly flop right in front of my window. "Ouch", I think. "That must have hurt." Nah! This little dude has true grit. He gets right up and starts skating again.
