A reflection on the priesthood from Jesuit Fr. Guy Consolmagno.

When prayer became a necessity for one government official.
Earlier this week, I posted a quote on our Facebook page from Eulalia Cobb. She’s a listener from West Pawlet, Vermont who wrote a lovely reflection in response to last week’s show on her practice of mindfulness while spring cleaning a chicken coop:
“In years past, I rushed impatiently through this coop cleaning. After all, there was a garden to be planted…”
What I find so delightful about posting wonderful words like Eulalia’s outside the bounds of speakingoffaith.org is the broad knowledge base and interesting insights we may not have learned otherwise. Many times this wisdom serves as a fresh starting point for fans who may not have happened across these quirky, endearing stories. And that’s why I absolutely dug Denise Klitsie’s comment in response:
Obama's statement that "some are to blame, but all are responsible" sounds a bit familiar.
A quote from Oglala Lakota tribe member Ryan Wilson, referring to tribal elders who were listening to young girls singing in Arapaho.
