  • The blog header depicts an important and yet mis-understood New Testament scene, Jesus flogging the money-changers out of the temple. I selected it because the faith that gives us consolation can also make us very uncomfortable. Both Divine Mercy and Divine Justice meet in Jesus. Priests are ministers of reconciliation, but never at the cost of truth. In or out of season, we must be courageous in preaching and living out the Gospel of Life. The title of my blog is a play on words, not Flogger Priest but Blogger Priest.

The Practicality of St. Paul

St. Paul is the Jew’s Jew.  He draws from the Old Testament relation of marriage between the Chosen People and God to speak analogously of Christ as the divine bride groom and the Church as his bride.  Paul is also very practical.  While he has a preference for single-hearted or celibate discipleship, he acknowledges that not everyone has that gift.
