  • 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.

Donate to Help Victims of Typhoon in Philippines


Sustained winds of 150-195 miles per hour (with gusts of up to 235 miles) makes Typhoon Haiyan one of the most powerful storms on record. Even though it moved quickly, it has caused much devastation. Many prayers for the people who have endured so much… first an earthquake and now this. I know many of my parishioners are worried about friends and family at home. Stay strong, you are not alone.

I have yet to hear anything from the Archdiocese but here is a link to Catholic Relief Services. 80% of the Filipino population is Catholic and Catholic Relief Services is on the ground and trying to help. You can assist by going to their website and making a donation to assist the hurting people in the Philippines. Millions are suffering and homeless. 10 to 12,000 are dead. Let them know that the we care. They are not alone.


With Typhoon Haiyan striking the Philippines, the Supreme Council of the KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS has already approved $250,000 for humanitarian relief. Knights and their families throughout the Order are urged to remember in their prayers all the people affected by the massive storm. Speaking to many friends in the Knights, you can also donate for this relief through the K of C.


Dear Jesus, we ask you to give strength and hope to your people who trust in you. Blessed Mother, please intercede for your children in this dark hour.
