  2. Happy Easter. Thank you for leading us through Lent to this glorious day! I have learned so much and truly reflected on how I can be more giving of myself. Jesus will guide me, I am sure of it.

  5. Father, I have been following your posts throughout Lent. I see now that with your Easter morning post, you have been telling us that we are to be trampling down death along with Jesus. That we must each do our part, as little as it may seem. There is much to be stamped out of this world and we may never complete the task, but God is happy when we try.

  6. Happy Easter Fr. Stephen. Sometimes I think I am losing track of who you were to us and then I see this and it all comes flooding back. You were with us briefly, but you are greatly missed. Keep on touching lives wherever you go. It makes a difference to those who have been blessed to know you. Even if you don't remember the little encounters, we surely do.

    1. I learned a great deal on Long Island and met so many very fine people along the way. It's also where I was able to rescue my dear Linus - my golden dog. I received such wonderful support there and met folks who said, "You're not reaching your audience; the Pauca Verba column has to be online." And then other folks who set it up and took charge of the techno part. Now the blog is approaching its 500th post. Christ is Risen! I send a blessing of gratitude!

  10. My father was Irish and when I was in seminary sometimes I was able to get away and pay him a visit. At the end of each visit he would say, "Son, keep the faith." I think it was an old Irish-ism - from the days when the Catholics were persecuted and faith (especially the Mass) was lived underground. So in difficult days - "Keep the faith."

  11. I will be visiting Lourdes for the first time in a few weeks. These films you are showing of Lourdes are so exciting to see. I have been watching them over and over. I feel comfortable knowing what to expect now. I can't believe I will be visiting the place where Mary appeared. Thank all of you for doing this.

  14. Father Stephen, I have been listening to this Christos Anesti since you put it up on Easter Sunday. I feel so uplifted at the thought of Jesus's love for us, that he should suffer and die to save us. It brings light to my life watching the Gospel unfold before us here. Thank you so much for this and sharing your work with us. Your blog is a blessing. I only wish you could know how much your blog is used as a guidance, a faith journey, a wealth of information about our faith and a rope to cling to in the dark so that I don't lose my way.
