For the last several years one my New Year’s resolutions is always to increase the amount of silence in my life, and every year it is an incredible challenge!! But it looks like I’m not alone. I recently started reading The Challenge of Silence by Anselm Grun, O.S.B. And in honor of my resolution I’m going to be silent and let his words speak to you: St. Benedict commits his monks to silence so that they may be less apt to sin. But if we take a closer look at monastic...

Hail to the King!!

Posted by on Nov 22, 2010 in blog

This Sunday we celebrated the Feast of Christ the King, marking the final week of our ecclesiastical calendar!  I was blessed to attend the Eucharistic procession at Old St. Patrick’s in New Orleans.  Father invited the little children and their parents to join in the procession as the Real Presence of Christ (the Source and Summit of the Christian Life), displayed in a monstrance, was carried around the beautiful Church.    In the hectic day-to-day of life it is so easy to...

Vision of Source and Summit

Posted by on Sep 16, 2009 in blog

In my years of doing youth ministry, I have found there to be a general lack of catechesis among teenagers. Sure, teenagers can tell you the basics about Jesus, but their understanding does not proceed much further. I have to admit, when I was a teenager, my grasp of the faith was average at best. The vision of Source and Summit is to provide teenagers, young adults, and adults with a better understanding of the faith and the person of Jesus Christ. This is the reason that...
