Benedict XVI, in his apostolic exhortation Sacramentum Caritatis, has several points dedicated to pointing out the relationship between the two sacraments. Obviously, since the Eucharist is the sacramental memorial of the Paschal mystery of Christ, all the other sacraments are linked to it.

    A novel by the Irish writer Samuel Beckett begins with this sentence: "The sun shone, having no alternative, on the nothing new." The sentence is a neat introduction into the novel that follows, and into much of Beckett's work, including his famous Waiting for Godot. A similar spirit permeates the novels of Franz Kafka and Albert Camus, for example, two other champions of the postmodern mood. That mood can best be described by one word: fatigue.

Hello, Hello...
Today, I want to share a different story with you. Yes, different and very sad story, but before telling it, I have to tell you something that happened to me nine years ago.

On that day, I was going to work when suddenly, from behind a wall, a duck flew toward me at full speed, with such bad luck that I hit him with the car and he was thrown to the ground. I reversed the car, stopped, and got out to help the poor bird. It turned out that the duck was not a papa duck, but a mama duck. How did I realize it was a lady duck? Because there, next to that wall, under a bush, were about 15 small, beautiful and defenseless ducklings.

DaneBairdDane Baird has been a witness member of the Home of the Mother for over 3 years. He has two daughters, Jean and Susannah. The newest addition to the family is Halo, wonder-dog! His profession is teaching autistic children and he enjoys acting in several parish and diocesan ministries, as well as supporting the Home of the Mother.

His blog is called "Fathers Floreat!" Floreat is a word he heard on retreat, it is latin for to flourish, to bloom. Men should be blossoming according to God's plan.

Jesus’ public ministry was a ministry of presence. Being present to His apostles. Being present to married couples, the poor and all sinners. He was present, challenging the Pharisees on their contrived piety and endless rules that might never convert their own hearts to His Father. When He was alone, He was praying, so, again, He was fully present. He was present, this time, to the empowering Father, someone who could renew our Lord’s spirit and body as He martialed on in his mission of the salvation of souls. This was a God of presence, being present.
