In August, as state chaplain of the Knights of Columbus, I attended the Knights convention in Philadelphia. The speakers, the archbishops of Iraq and Syria, made us painfully aware of the violence in their homeland and the danger of Christian presence and the celebration of the Eucharist coming to an end in the Middle East.

“How far are we from the cookie shop?” I ask my friend as my two thumbs find the pounding pressure points in my lower back. The crowd is so dense that I can barely bend my elbows to hit the points.

On the Feast of the Holy Family, when they read from the Book of Sirach at Mass, I always urge my four daughters to listen carefully—and take notes.

It is disheartening when people walk away from the Church.
Sometimes, when we try to talk, they run at us like some kid on the opposite team in a game of Red Rover. They want to break through our line and pull somebody else from the Church. They may even attempt to pull us away.
