... I have really made a strong effort to hold one day a week, generally Sunday, as Sabbath. The rest of the week, daily stuff, plus the courses I am taking, plus long range planning for school manage to fill my day in a positive way. Oh, and also visiting in our "bubble" of socially-distanced relationships.

On that day, Jesus went out of the house and sat down by the sea. Such large crowds gathered around him that he got into a boat and sat down, and the whole crowd stood along the shore. And he spoke to them at length in parables, saying:

Kairos is Greek for "right, critical, or opportune moment." In Christian theology, it means "a spiritual opportunity" It's a concept that focuses on the quality or meaning of moments that are transformative. (You can contrast it with "chronos"... this is the time we talk about/think about when we consider chronological time, or sequential time. It's the time that "passes." We often lay it out like a timeline. We use seconds, minutes, hours, etc.)

Part of the process of discerning what’s important in our lives is gathering facts that will help us look at what is real regarding our decisions. After the facts are gathered, then what to do with them? Facts help us orient ourselves to all the considerations we must attend to. They are not the whole story.

We are living through extraordinary times. I am reminded of the beginning of Dickens’s book: It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. We are facing a pandemic, an economic meltdown, social unrest, violence, and injustice against people of color and against immigrants. As people of faith, we are called to live with an extraordinary commitment to the gospel.

"If we're really doing the Gospel work, our work is not to be loved by everyone. If we're really challenging the status quo in the way that Jesus did we're not going to make everyone happy. It is uncomfortable. It also means taking risks, it also means putting your body on the line." -Sister Alison McCrary SFCC

Recently I came across a saying that tells us the poor have much to teach us. As I thought about that I asked myself what the poor can teach us. Dependence is one thing.

Jonah found out. So did Isaiah and Jeremiah, although in very different ways. It’s impossible to run away from God!

Chapter 58 of the Rule of Benedict outlines the procedures for receiving people who desire to enter into the monastic life, specifically for Benedict, the cenobitic community. The chapter does not sugarcoat the process; it’s not meant to be a breeze. The elder member of the community entrusted to journey with the seeker must lay out the struggles in a candid and sincere manner. The seeker must show a love for the Liturgy of the Hours, for obedience, and for the hardships that are inevitable on the path of a communal life focused in humility and prayer and conversion.
