Fr. Charles Irvin, Diocese of Lansing at 402-A E. Madison Street, DeWitt, MI 48820 US - Home

    You have arrived at my cyberspace home. Enter and browse, won’t you? Here you will find ideas that I have expressed in articles, essays and homilies, as well as in my newly published book, ENTERING THE HEART OF GOD:Praying the Lord's Prayer In Our Times.
     Forty-six years of being a priest have shaped me. I have been formed by the hands of people among whom God has sent me to love and serve. Within them God dwells; through them He reaches me. I am what I am because of so very many good souls. All of which means that the thoughts shared here are certainly not mine alone. They come from souls sharing a Faith, a Faith inspired by the One whom God has sent us. “We are not on earth as museum-keepers, but to cultivate a flourishing garden of life and to prepare for a glorious future.” (Pope John XXIII)
      Welcome to my house. I’m glad you stopped by. Do drop in again for other visits.

Yours in the Lord,
Fr. Charles Irvin

Palm Sunday - 2014
Blood is life-giving; it is the essential element in sustaining us in life. Babies the womb receive oxygen and nutrients from their mothers’ blood. When natural disasters occur the Red Cross appeals for blood donors. During surgeries donated blood sustains patients in life. In many cultures the bonding of people is sealed in rituals that mingle blood. In all cultures blood has a deeply religious significance.

7th Sun [A] 2014

Yogi Berra once said: “You've got to be very careful if you don't know where you're going, because you might not get there."

Way back in 1865 Lewis Carroll published a novel for children. Alice in Wonderland was its name. In that novel we find Alice one day wandering around in a dream world. She stops and asks a cat: "Would you tell me, please, which way I should go from here?" The cat replies: "That depends a good deal on where you want to be." Alice said: "Oh, I don't much care." With that the cat responds: "Then it doesn't much matter which way you go." But Alice persisted: "But I want to get somewhere." Whereupon the cat, with a wry grin, said: "Oh, you are sure to do that!"
