God gave me a gay son ... and I did not alwyas think it a blessing [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2014
God gave me a gay son ... and I did not alwyas think it a blessing Thomas A. Nelson Mark gazed out the small window of his dorm room. It was Saturday morning and the bitter cold bleakness outside matched his mood. His anguish—realizing that he was attracted to some of the young men around him and the conviction that those feelings would disgust people—fed his terrible feeling of isolation and left him feeling numb. He didn’t think it was his fault; he wondered if God had made him that way. But it wasn’t a problem he could talk about, not to family, not to friends. No one could help him. Even God didn’t answer. So on this Saturday morning Mark realized nothing really mattered anymore. It could only get worse. And while it frightened him —having considered it for quite a long time — he also knew how he could fix it. The only way to confront this demon was to end it all. Nobody would understand it anyway. He didn’t understand it. But he knew he was gay, and he knew being gay was an abo...

Waiting for Gabriel [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2014
Waiting for Gabriel Timothy P. O’Malley Do you have children?” For most 30-somethings, this harmless question is the opening volley of a round of acceptable chit-chat. Colleagues at the office fill silences with news of recent pregnancies, first communions, and athletic milestones in their children’s lives. For my wife and me, however, a question about our brood never offers an escape route from awkward social interactions, but is rather the prelude to uncomfortable conversations with strangers and confidants alike. “No children,” we say, our voices revealing our discomfort with the question. How can you say to a complete stranger, a trusted teacher, a friendly cleric, a college classmate: “We’re infertile”? THE DIAGNOSIS AND AFTERMATH My wife and I met before our senior year at the University of Notre Dame and became engaged a little over a year after we began to date. Like so many Notre Dame couples before us, our nuptials took place at the university’s Basilica of the Sacred Hear...
Family Ethics Practices for Christians [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2014
Family Ethics Practices for Christians Julie Hanlon Rubio If we are to honor the Christian tradition’s elevation of sharing food around a table, we have to find “a deeply satisfying way to eat.” 1 This would mean, first of all, sitting down together. Getting this practice right not only provides a context for making just choices but also trains family members in being in community with others. When families fail to eat together, they practice a problematic kind of individualism where personal tastes and priorities trump the value of community. According to anthropologists, family meals are a primary means of “civilizing children. It’s about teaching them to be a member of their culture.” 2 Around the table, a family talks about the stories, jokes, and issues that become central to its identity. Here children learn how a conversation is structured, how to ask others about their days, how to respond to questions or to extend a discussion. Moreover, in sharing food that is not always t...
Everyday Grace Guardian angels at work [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2014
Everyday Grace Guardian angels at work Peter Folan a Grandparents are like wisdom of the family: 99 They are wisdom of a people. ~ Pope Francis It was an early August morning and the sun had only begun to peek through the foggy Cape Cod morning; it would take a few hours to melt the morning dew sprinkled across the yard. The glittering spiderwebs that danced on the tips of the disheveled lawn would soon disappear in the heat of the day. The morning would rise shortly as would the day, sending my grandfather, whom we called Puppy, back home for another week and me off to my summer routine. Snuggled next to him, we reminisced about his childhood and recounted tales from our family lore. During those early summer mornings, my grandfather and I also explored questions about God, Jesus, and miracles. He told me that everyone has a guardian angel to help them see God’s work in their daily lives. At 10, I searched everywhere but could not see mine or understand. I adored Puppy, and we shar...
INTIMACY Between Generations [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2014
INTIMACY Between Generations Drew Christiansen, S.J. Intimacy, we think, is for young friends; for lovers, spouses, longtime colleagues, perhaps even for the mature consumers of Cialis, but not for the frail, infirm, dependent elderly, nor especially for dependent elders and their overworked family caregivers. We are oblivious to intimacy in late life. But more and more men and women are caring for their aged parents, relatives, and friends, and finding in their caregiving a special form of intimacy, more exacting in its demands and more expansive in its generosity than the others. PHYSICAL INTIMACY AND DIGNITY IN OLD AGE Nearly 30 years ago I returned in the summer to Berkeley after a year as a visiting professor at Notre Dame. While I was away one of the neighbors, a retired professor of sociology at CAL, had begun coming to the community for lunch. After a few days, however, Elizabeth failed to appear in the dining room, and the rector asked me to carry lunch to her apartment. Th...
