Thu, Jun 8th 2017 11:00 am

Over and over again I have learned that when we pray "Come, Holy Spirit," we had best be prepared for surprises!

Bishop Malone: Sealed, strengthened and sent
Mon, May 8th 2017 08:00 am
Late on Easter afternoon, driving east on the Thruway, I stopped for coffee. The woman at the counter asked me, "How was your Easter?" A gracious, well-intended expression of hospitality, but ... was? How was my Easter? ... and this on Easter Day! I said, "My Easter is great, thank you, and it will be for the next 50 days. I pray it will be for you, too." I never miss a teachable moment, in this case, an opportunity to make a simple reference to the Great 50 Days, the season from Easter to Pentecost when the Church basks in the radiance of the Risen Lord and longs for a new coming of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost.

Bishop Malone: Open wide your hearts!
Mon, Apr 10th 2017 02:00 pm
Isn't it a curious and concerning thing that so many of our Christian feasts have been overlaid - better, co-opted - by all sorts of customs that, though nice, have little to do with the essence of those feasts.
