  1. God Bless you for your tribute to Nathan. I’ve been haunted for the past 24 hours of the local TV news video showing Nathan walking down the street and the video of his killer before and after the shooting. I didn’t realize until I was directed to read your blog that he was a sidewalk counselor. May his death be a catlyst for change in the culture of our troubled youths. John Curran


  2. Because of your tribute to Nathan I have begun following your blog. God bless you for the work you do as a priest. The Church needs you and others like you who follow in the footsteps of Jesus.


  3. Pondering this young man’s death, in my heart, I know he is among the communion of saints. I can’t help noticing that he died at age 24. This is the same age as some of my favorite saints….Therese of Lisieux, St. Elizabeth Seton, St. Kateri Tekawitha.

    Once when reading the story of St. Rita, I remember her saying that God takes us when our soul is best disposed, and without regard for the desires of our family. Gosh, that’s an idea I find very hard to swallow when I consider the circumstances of Nathan’s death.

    I will pray for healing and peace of heart for all concerned.

  6. Father,
    I just read your post about Voltaire’s letter to his disciple about sacriledgous communions. do you know where one could find a copy of that letter? I have a friend who wants to use it for a class he is teaching.


  7. I heard about in Timothy Dolan’s book, Priests for the New Millenium.


  8. I read a lot of your blog posts even if I do not always comment. Thanks for the wisdom!
