There’s the slightly cheesy statement that “nails did not keep Christ on the Cross: love did.” Well, such a statement could be equally applied to the Sacrifice of the Mass and the abiding presence of Christ in the Holy Eucharist: it is not our own worthy treatment of this mystery which makes Jesus Christ present on the altar, or in the Tabernacle outside of Mass. It is His own love, His own fidelity to His assurance that “I will not leave you orphans. I will come to you . . . And behold, I am with you always, even until the consummation of the world” (Jn. 14:18, Mt. 28:20).

I have many interests although I would have to say that reading about history especially Church history trumps it all: a good ole history book can keep me occupied for hours . If I am not reading a history book I enjoy Altar Serving, Playing the Piano, Rock Climbing, Reading Fiction, Taking Care of my Farm Animals and bossing everyone in the magazine around. Although, some people may call me a control freak that is completely false, I just like to have a tight controlling grip around everyone I 'see'. (Wait what are those two editors doing without my permission?!?) Other Jobs: I also write articles, blog posts, and manage the website.
