A few days ago, Adoro tagged me for a 'Top Ten' posts meme. Life interfered, but since it is a cold and foggy day in Iowa, it is time to scour my archives to see if I can round up ten posts that are worth sharing.
1) Spiritual Moms for Priests is a recent addition to the 'Called by Name' archive. I not only pass along info from the Vatican, but tell a bit of my own vocation story.
2) November brings The More, the Merrier with an idea of how to reinvigorate life in a parish.
3) October brought an unexpected surprise in Grateful for Gifts Received.
4) September brought about craziness in A Week in the Life of a Vocation Director.
5) I swiped A Father grows to support his daughter's vocation from Brad at Roman Catholic Vocations.
6) Seek Eagerly After Love was my attempt to present some of the themes from Deus Caritas Est.
7) My thoughts on Ordination to the Priesthood appeared in the Telegraph in May.
8) How to promote vocations in the Parish was the subject of One Every Eight.
9) Just in time for Advent comes a reflection from Lent on The Need for Reconciliation.
10) Last, but hopefully not least, are the words from one of the hardest days of my life as a priest, but also one of the most rewarding, as I shared my thought from the Homily for the Funeral Mass of a dear young one.
