Personality by Pixels

What was a favorite course you had in school, from grade school thru grad school?
Clinical Pastoral Education, Washington Hospital Center, D.C. I learned experientially as a chaplain intern, the very human reality to which we are called to bring God's compassion and mercy.

Why is Salesian gentleness so important to you?
Because it makes the Gospel real, human, and accessible.

If you were asked to select a motto by which to live - other than De Sales' Live Jesus, what would it be?
Always be gracious and grateful.

What do you miss about living in a time when there was less technology?  Why?
People, myself included, seemed more patient.  We didn't have an urgency and immediacy, in terms of our expectations about almost everything.

Pope Francis continues to both inspire and challenge.  What is most inspiring about him and what is most challenging?
His commitment to migrants and the environment is both inspiring and challenging.

Of all the gifts friends and family have given you, what is a favorite?
Their time, forgiveness, and understanding.

On a bad day, how do you make it a little better?
I ask myself, "How is life cracking through this pain?"

What is a favorite Scripture quote or passage?
MT 11:29.  "Learn from me, for I am gentle and humble of heart."  It was De Sales' favorite, and I return to it almost daily.  The Spirit continues to teach and form me through it.
