Homily from the Second Sunday of Lent. Obedience precedes understanding. We are made for adventure. But adventure means mystery and uncertainty. Often, what holds us back from action is a lack of knowing why. But what if there is a better question than “why?”? What if the adventure of obedience means asking “how?”? Mass Readings from February 28, 2…
 
This week we take a walk down memory lane with five of the six members of the UMD women’s hockey 2020-21 senior class, which is coming off its final weekend of play this season at Amsoil Arena — a four-point weekend against Wisconsin that left the team two points shy of the WCHA title.

The UMD women’s hockey program wore its most recent special edition jersey last Saturday against Minnesota State and will do so again Friday against Wisconsin at Amsoil Arena in Round 1 of the WCHA Regular Season Championship. It’s a throwback inspired by what the men’s team wore in the early 1950s. Joining us to talk about jerseys of Bulldogs past…
 
Homily from the First Sunday of Lent. God is not safe, but He is good. Trust is a challenge for all of us. Trust in God is a battle that every person faces at some point in their lives. Often, we might find is easier to trust God if He were a “tame god”, but He is not. This Lent, our invitation is to not only trust in God’s mercy, but also in His j…
 
Project management is about people: working with people, for people, through people. So it goes to reason that managers who have a deeper understanding of human behavior will be more effective. Beyond managing their teams, PMs are heavily involved in forecasting - defining the scope, budget and schedule of their projects, and then making decisions …
 
Homily from Ash Wednesday. Return to the Lord with your whole heart. We are often tempted to run away from God and from difficult moments in life. We might even be tempted to escape from all that has been taken from us over the past year. But to choose to embrace this moment is to choose to embrace the Lord and His Providence. Mass Readings from Fe…
 
Homily from the Sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time. Every choice comes at a cost. Looking back, there are some things we could have known. And looking back, there are some things we could never have known. But one thing is unfailingly true when seen through hindsight: every decision comes at a price and every choice has a cost. Making the decision is ri…

Homily from the Fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time. Good times don’t last…and neither do bad times. One of the many things that life teaches us is that life is always changing. To grow is to change. There are times that are good and there are times that are bad. All of us go through good times and bad times and neither of them are permanent. In both goo…

Homily from the Fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time. I learned, but I didn’t grow. Knowledge is powerful. Having lived through this past year, and looking back on what we have been through is essential. We can have learned a great number of things over 2020. But unless we are willing to act on that knowledge, hindsight will be powerless. Mass Readings f…

Homily from the Third Sunday in Ordinary Time. Editing is the enemy of how we remember the story. We look back so that we can see clearly and learn from our past. But we also have a temptation to edit the story we tell ourselves. We might edit how we tell the story, but we must not edit how we remember the story. Mass Readings from January 24, 2021…

Homily from the Baptism of the Lord. At the Incarnation, God joined His dicinity to humanity...at the Baptism of Jesus, God identifies with our brokenness.

Homily from the Mass of the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary, and Joseph. Parents are not powerless. It can be so easy for parents to feel powerless when it comes to passing on the faith to their families.

Covid-19 has changed the way we operate on every level, including how we manage projects.

Homily from the Fourth Sunday of Advent. Silence magnifies and waiting purifies. Waiting is not meant to be wasted.

Homily from the Third Sunday of Advent. No one can take from you what doesn’t belong to you. We all have the temptation to pretend to be someone or something other than we are.

Homily from the First Sunday of Advent. God will not just get us through this moment…He has brought us to this moment. Too often, we find ourselves just wanting this moment to be “done."

Homily from the Solemnity of Christ the King. What you do with the delay makes all the difference. We have a destination: to be who we are and to be that well. We have a Roadmap and a Rule of Life.

Homily from the Thirty-third Sunday in Ordinary Time. What have you done with what you've been given? No one ever sets out to lose.

Even with a great roadmap, we need regular checkpoint…

Homily from the Thirty-second Sunday in Ordinary Time. Excellence requires making the decision carefully, consistently, and quickly.

Homily from the Thirtieth Sunday in Ordinary Time. Holiness isn’t always changing your what as much as changing your why. Our lives have been reclaimed by Christ and we have become a new creation. Because of this, every moment of our lives can be lived with and for a new purpose. Every moment can be repurposed to be a sacrament, and sacrifice, and …
 
Homily from the Twenty-ninth Sunday in Ordinary Time. The roadmap begins with “Who”. There is one true goal in life: to be a saint. Many of us believe this, but is there a path?

Homily from the Twenty-eighth Sunday in Ordinary Time. There are many goods. There is only one best.
