To those of you who have been avid readers of Fr. Jim’s Homilies and find them keeping your “I-am-hanging-on-by-my-fingernails” Catholicism nurtured, like me, he hasn’t fallen off the face of the earth. We who have known and loved Fr. Jim for years have a nickname for him: The Roamin’ Catholic Priest. He is an avid world traveler. And sure as it is that you also have to put away the Christmas decorations after Epiphany, it is also a sure sign that the holiday season is over when Fr. Jim heads for a warmer and sunnier climate for a few weeks. He will usually email his homilies to me from wherever he is in the world if he can get an internet connection. When he headed out this time, he did not tell me that he would not be sending me homiles as he usually does, but I know where he is and I have a feeling he is out of internet range. Not to fear. He should be back tanned and rested within a few days.

"Solidarity does not assume that our struggles are the same struggles, or that our pain is the same pain, or that our hope is for the same future. Solidarity involves commitment, and work, as well as the recognition that even if we do not have the same feelings, or the same lives, or the same bodies, we do live on common ground." - Sarah Ahmed
