Back to School

September 3, 2019 at 2:36 pm

Chaplain’s Corner Padre Zibby Jonczyk It is hard to believe that summer is almost over and it is time for many of our kids to go back to school. It is that time of the year we tend to welcome with mixed emotions. Another summer is almost over. Days are getting shorter; the nights are drawing in faster, and although we can still feel the warmth of sun on our skin, that cool morning breezeRead More

Notre-Dame Cathedral a monument to faith

Chaplain’s Corner Padre Z. Gracjan Burkiciak On April 15 the Cathedral Notre-Dame de Paris caught fire, destroying the Spire and the oak frame and the lead roof. The main structure was intact.

The Great Organ with 8,000 pipes built by François Thierry in 1800 century was also saved but sustained water damage. Because of the ongoing renovations, the copper statues on the Spire hadRead More

Chaplain’s Corner Padre Marcin Rosinski I do not know about you, but forgiveness is not easy for me.

Sometimes when we have done a good job and are complimented on our success we sabotage the parade by converting a positive into a negative. This flaw sees us undervaluing our currency. Sometimes I do this when someone IRead More

The poison of overgeneralization

The poison of overgeneralization

January 29, 2019 at 8:45 am

There is a poison that can spoil our souls. It can eat away at our confidence. Sicken our sense of hope. Taint our opinions and as leaders can impair our judgment of self and others. It’s overgeneralization which is a term that can describe negative events as never-ending patterns of failure. Maybe you’ve experienced this before. I work hard for something but for whatever reasons I don’t receive what I believed to be the justRead More

Twelve days after Christmas, on January 6, many Christians celebrate the Feast of Epiphany, from the Greek word epifaneia which means manifestation or appearance. The Feast celebrates the revelation of God to humanity through the birth of his Son. Some of you might know it also as Feast of the Tree Kings which is the name we used in my old country, Poland. You might remember from your childhood the story of three kings, wiseRead More
