  • 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.

My Mother is with the Lord


Sometimes all you can do is cry. I told friends, “Well, at least now I know someone for certain among the saints who will plead to let me in when I come to the gates of heaven.”


Rest in Peace, Momma.


Many thanks to the Knights of Columbus Color Corps for lending solemnity to the services.  The family and I appreciate the support of friends and parishioners.  God bless you all.

  1. That’s one big family she has to pray for her. I’ll pray for her. I like making friends with people in purgatory/heaven…the more the better. Hopefully, they’ll all remember me and pray for me when I die.

  2. Eternal rest grant unto her Oh Lord and let perpetual light shine upon her. God Bless y’all and bring y’all strength and peace.

  3. My deepest condolences. Lost mine 3 years ago. Very difficult but our faith tells us there is hope.

  4. Father Joe, I know you will miss her so much. Give yourself the time to grieve, Loosing a second parent is so different from losing the first. Let Mother Mary hold you in her loving arms; Mary will understand. Cry, and let others cry with you… for you; you will be glad you did.
