• Solitude & Me#

    6 July, 2016

    As with our Lord and St. Benedict, I too require solitude's fields of refreshment. In solitude I discover more of Jesus. He then disarms me with love. I need solitude to enter the depths of myself, where hopefully, I will hear God speak a word of love to me. “Be still and know that I am…...[read more]

  • St Benedict did Solitude#

    5 July, 2016

    Saint Benedict (c480-550) was not always a human saint. Born as Roman nobility, he would abandon his normal studies around the turn of the sixth century. Still a student Benedict chose a deliberate journey to the Subiaco series of caves about forty miles east of Rome. Distressed at the wanton…...[read more]

  • Jesus did Solitude#

    4 July, 2016

    Did Jesus ever make a mistake? His brief season upon planet earth was punctuated in silence, devotion and prayerful solitude. A model we all would do well to heed.

Elijah then disappears with an equal pace. This man of pensive passion still scrambles for my attention…...[read more]

  • The Conflict Between the Educated Church & Jesus

    31 January, 2016

    I fear the doctrine of the church, I disdain the missal and I abhor the ill-judged compromises of ecumenism; for where is the yearning of the soul if it is not first to sit at the feet of the Almighty, prior to the busy ritual communion of saints? Doctrine dilutes faith, ritual destroys…...[read more]

  • The Purity of Solitude

    1 November, 2015

    A human spirit encompassed by silence, a soul released from today and a body absent of distress always gains health with solitude. Solitude is the company of the Divine while still upon earth. It is the stripping of distraction, and the clothing with spiritual intent. A heart emptied…...[read more]
