Vivir y Morir

Who Do You Say I Am?

Peace and all good. In today’s Gospel, Jesus asks a question to his disciples: “who do people say that I am?” but that was only a preliminary question; the real question was “Who do you say I am?” The first question is easily answered; one has only to be a reporter. But the second question […]

Strangers

From the Associate Pastor’s Desk In 2014, I did my chaplaincy internship at Cedars‐Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.
