Bonus Treats

This is a bonus treat . H/T to  Homilists For the Homeless for this video link.

 Franciscan friar, Father Richard Rohr believes that church buildings can be a great asset of modern Christianity, or its greatest peril. 

Father Rohr explains the paradox in a sermon delivered at Trinity Wall Street on the Gospel story traditionally called “the widow’s mite.”

Also check out this video from Fr. Richard I posted earlier this week,called Learning To See and this oldie but a goodie that still stands the test of time from a 2009 podcast on The Meaning of Advent from here.

If you want some great reflections please check out Hungry and You Fed Me: Homilies and Reflections for Cycle C, featuring James Martin SJ and Richard Rohr OFM, my friend Fran Rossi Szpylczyn  and cover plus inside illustrations from the beautiful artwork of Brother Michael O’Neill McGrath. 

Fran gives more information and links here.
 Fran also says "if anyone is interested in using Hungry and You Fed Me for faith formation, prayer group or small faith sharing purposes, please contact Jim Knipper, his info is seen below. 

We continue to get more inquiries from many who are considering using the book for prayer groups, bible studies and faith formation. We think it is a great idea and are willing to help support that effort. 
So if you are interested in purchasing 6 or more books at one time, please email DeaconJim at and he will provide you volume discounted pricing! Tis the season to be generous!! "

I am certainly enjoying reading it. 

Finally, thanks to my friend Meredith Gould for this one.
