Birthdays this week: ???
Keeping-in-touch: I enjoyed three days of tennis last week and played softball in the rain Sunday night with Nativity Men. We had a good pot-luck gathering with faculty and spouses. And we celebrated Tom Duggan’s retirement… what does a philosopher do in retirement? I have offered to facilitate a summer session on Christology and am building a Moodle supliment for those who wish to use it… I’m excited about this.
Comments on the Readings: Fr. Foley: “Two ways of life: on one side, Grab And Keep. On the other, Receive and Let Go. The hired hand, the good shepherd.”
My Comments: The Good Shepherd offers a love so wonderful we must take some time to savor this awesome gift. Sometimes I hectically spend my time working for wages (or in hopes of some) that I fail to reflect on my “labors of love.”
May the peace of Christ be with each of you.
