Every week is busy. Some weeks are just busier. Not only was last week Homecoming week for the Catholic high school where I work, I had the great opportunity of attending a long-time friend’s wedding yesterday. The ceremony was wonderful and it was great to see friends, but I can honestly say that I wasn’t thrilled about getting up at 5:30am on Saturday to drive 6.5 hours, go to the wedding, and drive 6.5 hours back today. After a long week, it certainly throws things off!
Don’t Take This Too Seriously
Some movies offer a window into the divine, sparking our imaginations and leaving us with wonder. Others, are just silly. In this week’s Upon Friar Review, Fr. Patrick and I spend a few minutes with the latter, discussing Jack Black’s portrayal of a Franciscan wrestler in Nacho Libre.
Take This Seriously?
What might seem like a continuation of our folly in this week’s Everyday Liminality is actually a sneaky way to have a deep conversation. Almost. Reviewing the shameless and hilarious Free Guy, we recognize that there are actually some deep philosophical questions lurking beneath the surface.
Take This VERY Seriously
If more humor is what you’re looking for, definitely don’t watch this week’s reflection on Breaking in the Habit. Using a scene from Calvary as a springboard, I discuss how we should forgive horrible situations but never forget them. That goes for what people have done to us, but also what we’ve done to others.

The Chaos Continues
And so here I am, writing on Sunday evening, realizing that the week is already upon me! Please pray for my time management, my ability to say “no,” and the success of whatever God wants to do with me this week.
Peace and good,
Thank you for your insights and sharing them with us. May the Lord give us the strength to forgive; not to forget; but to heal and change attitudes that makes the sin possible. Thank you! Pace e Bene!
