As the eagle soars above the mountains beyond the heights of creation, John the Evangelist elevates the person of Jesus Christ to a realm outside the capacity of human comprehension. And yet, we see in John’s scripture that the Divine was just as near to humanity: “and the Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us” (John 1:14). It is with this spirit of the Beloved Disciple that I write this blog. Will I navigate the heights of creation as the eagle or attempt to explain the utter colossality of the Incarnation? Most likely no, however I will give people a glimpse into the life of a newly ordained priest serving a suburban parish community. With St. John as my inspiration, I anticipate remarking on relevant topics in the Church, discussing life here at St. Dominic Parish in Brookfield, WI, and journeying towards a greater understanding of priestly ministry in our 21st century world.
