Walking Prayers

I’ve just read a book about walking prayers: The Complete Guide to Prayer-Walking by Linus Mundy. In a previous post, I wrote about walking a labyrinth, but this is different, and you don’t need a labyrinth to do it. It has an added benefit to prayers said kneeling in a pew or sitting in a […]

Self-Esteem and Fitting In

As a teacher, I sometimes came across a situation in which a child who was a little different was shunned or picked on by classmates. Perhaps you observed this when you were a student. Maybe you can identify with that child! The epidemic of bullying seen in our country bears out the fact that the […]

A number of things happened recently to provide me with a topic for this post. Yesterday I went to the eye doctor to get “piano glasses,” which will let me see the notes without tilting my head back when I play for the people in Notre Dame Village on Sundays. Then this morning on a […]

We are celebrating creation during September and until October 4, feast of St. Francis of Assisi, the great lover of creation. My book Voices, God Speaking in Creation has a prologue that is quite appropriate for this month, so I’m reprinting it here this week: I said to the almond tree, “Sister, speak to me […]

by Kathleen Glavich, SND on August 14, 2019

No doubt you remember Uriah Heep, the character in Dickens’s novel David Copperfield who kept referring to his “umbleness.” All the while, Mr. Heep was nothing but a scheming hypocrite. His humility was fake, used as a tool to manipulate others into thinking well of him. People who are truly humble are admired. Those who […]

Last week because I cannot bilocate I was faced with a decision:  Do I go to a friend’s family reunion Saturday or to a community celebration?  I wanted to attend both.

Creation, a Springboard to God

by Kathleen Glavich, SND on July 31, 2019

I just finished writing an endorsement for a book that is built on the premise that there is divine presence in all of creation. This concept is scripture based, for we read in Jeremiah 23:24, “Do I not fill heaven and earth? says the Lord.” When the Son of God became incarnate, he united himself […]

Meaning of Names and Patron Saints

by Kathleen Glavich, SND on July 17, 2019

The other day I told two of our cooks that the saint whose feast day landed on their birthday could be considered their patron saint. One man’s birthday was the feast of St. Basil, which was appropriate for a cook. When I told the other man that his saint was St. Josaphat, he commented, “It […]
