What Olympians can teach us about the pursuit of greatness and glory

What Olympians can teach us about the pursuit of greatness and glory

| Deacon Marc Paveglio | February 27, 2014 | 0 Comments

Just recently, the winter Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia, concluded, and the victors went home with their medals. I’m always riveted by the level of power, agility and endurance these athletes display on the ice and snow. I’m even more impressed, however, by their stories.

Humility is a virtue we learn from Christ

I have seen many people — politicians, celebrities, even priests — especially in Uganda where I grew up, demanding honor and respect from others. Being honored and respected is good. But, if we overly demand it from others, it may not be good. The readings of this Sunday challenge us as Jesus’ followers to learn to be humble.

The boldness of the Word

The boldness of the Word

Jesus is many times presented as a nice person: kind, compassionate and a ­gentle shepherd.

However, we are reminded this week that Jesus is uncompromising and demanding. God did not send his only Son to entertain us: He came to proclaim and teach the truth, which often collides with our lives.

I love to cook. And, to be honest, I’m not too shabby at it. A few years back, I was cooking a tasty meal for 20 of my brothers in the seminary.
