  • “May the Force be with you!”
    No doubt, many of us remember that greeting from the “Star Wars” movies. It is one of many theological themes that run through that series.
    Belief in a supreme authority or some higher powers is almost universal, even if such forces are regarded as nothing more than an impersonal reality, which is still above our comprehension — or perhaps forever beyond it.

  • “Fear is useless; what is needed is trust” (Lk 8:50).
    With these words, Jesus dispelled the din of the mourners who assumed “the obvious:” that the life of a dead 12-year-old girl — the daughter of Jairus — was over and done with. Nothing more could be done.
  • Question: How many diocesan officials does it take to install a new bishop? Answer: At least two dozen. That's how many have been gathering at the diocesan Pastoral Center in Albany to discuss invitations, color-coded seating at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception and, especially, the logistics of finding parking spaces for 1,200 people on a weekday afternoon in downtown Albany.
