    Prayers desperately needed

    In case you haven’t heard, there is a standoff in Nevada between the U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM), and a rancher by the name of Cliven Bundy.  Mr. Bundy is a rancher, as was his father, and his grandfather, on this particular massive piece of land since the late 1800s.  In 1993, the BLM […]

    The Feast of The Annunciation: Mama Mary Loves Us!

    Today is the Feast of The Annunciation of Our Lord.  It holds particular significance for me because it is the anniversary of the day my wife learned that we would be parents for the first time.
