 The Smell of Sheep

When sheep lose trust and confidence in their shepherds, when they sense a lack of attention and care when they have no example to follow, they tend to scatter.  And without a flock to tend, shepherds are no longer shepherds.

And the Gospel is blunt and absolutely clear in reminding us that our shepherding should be marked by compassion and justice, gentleness and reconciliation - by our own willingness to lay down our lives. Maybe it is time for all of us to re-examine just how willing we are to do just tha

Making Sense of Man's Inhumanity to Man

Making Sense of Man’s Inhumanity to Man
by Hank Mattimore

If one of the major tasks of old age is to make sense of life, I flunk.

For starters I can’t begin to comprehend the isolation, the loneliness the rejection that drove a young man to plan and execute the brutal murder of 17 human beings, most of them his own peers. My eight decades of life experience can’t tell me why.

We cope in different ways when we hear of yet another school massacre. We rage at the greed of our elected representatives who are selling their very souls for the filthy lucre of campaign money.

We shed tears for the victims and their families and yes, for ourselves because allowing the killing of our children to happen poisons the air we breathe, casts a dark cloud of sadness and despair over our lives.
