Most everyone in the San Diego area knows the Marine Corps motto: “Semper Fi,” always faithful. Some know the Coast Guard motto: “Semper Paratus,” always prepared. From my experience as a deacon, I suggest that the motto for the diaconate should be: “Semper Gumbi,” always flexible. What I thought I would do as a deacon […]

Though the subtitle is tongue in cheek, one of the concepts we learn in Cursillo to help maintain our spiritual life in Christ is summed up in those three words: Piety, Study, and Action.

When Marie laughed you could hear the joyful noise blocks away. Her language could be rough and loud, but we never underestimated her ability to communicate with people on the street. She had assisted people on the margins since the late 1960s when she helped people suffering from HIV/AIDS on both sides of the San […]

Last weekend I was blessed to attend a retreat at Camp Stevens with diocesan colleagues who work in Children’s and Youth Ministry. I am not sure I have enough superlatives in my vocabulary to do justice to the beauty of the locale or the richness of the experience. The weather in Julian was picture-perfect—crisp and chilly, […]
