Pass the Salt Please!

On vacation this summer Joe and I were frustrated with the slow pouring salt-shakers! (Just one of our bad habits!) Taking matters into his own hands, Joe switched the tops of the salt and pepper-shakers giving us the “fast pour” on the salt. Salt is one of my four basic food groups. It serves us well for two reasons! Salt not only spices up our food but also has a valuable lesson for us. What can a common spice teach us? Back in its day, common salt was traded and valued like oil is today. It was because of what it did for other things that made it so important and esteemed. Salt was in high regard and often used as a high standard. (“He’s not worth his salt.”) Salt brings out flavor, and adds zest to everything. Salt acted as a preservative to prevent spoilage, as it does in many ways today, making it a very valuable commodity. Even Jesus used salt in his teaching, “you are the salt of the earth”. Just what are we suppose to learn from this? We are each called to be each other’s salt in two ways: We add flavor: We draw out the best in others, adding the spice of life – we make people smile, we dash their fears (real or imaginary), we add the zest of friendship, love, a hug, a phone call, sharing a meal. Salt in us brings out the best in ourselves allowing us to enhance the lives of others, just like the foods it serves. We preserve: Like salt, we also preserve each other, protecting health... read more

Prayer to St. Kateri Tekawitha

Prayer to St. Kateri Tekawitha Saint Kateri Tekawitha, our elder sister in the Lord, discreetly, you watch over us; May your love for Jesus and Mary inspire us with words and deeds of friendship, forgiveness, and of reconciliation.

Help us, as you did, to encounter the Creator God present in the very depths of nature, and so become witnesses of Life. With you, we praise the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen.

God, Where Are You?

One more mass shooting, one more hurricane and we are crying, “God, where are you?” These are not just setbacks. These are not merely bumps in the road. These are full-blown, world altering tragedies bringing devastation to property and personal lives. As we’ve so sadly witnessed recently on so many fronts that life can turn in a second, unannounced. One doctor’s diagnosis, one storm, one missed red light, one frantic phone call, or one beat of the heart. Sometimes we get so caught up in our day-to-day living that we take our life for granted. We fall into the trap of thinking that this human condition is forever. Our lives consist of a collage of all these precious TEMPORARY years, days and minutes that we are on this earth – for better or worse. Often it takes the jolt of a tragedy to look to God for meaning. We need to remind ourselves that God is with us, and speaking to us through ANY situation. When the world seems to fall apart and the bottom drops out of our lives, we need to see past the ugliness and through the pain to the ultimate reality of things – which is – despite all appearances, God is still in charge, still cares, still has the power to make all things right, and still intends to do just that – in good time!  What enables us to see all that so clearly when disaster has struck so hard? Faith! Even in the thick of turmoil, the Shared Presence of God can be felt. One phone call, one friend, one act of patience, one... read more
