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

Welcome!
    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


17th Sun [A] 2014
The Kingdom of God, always somewhat mysterious for us, was always on the mind of Jesus. There are almost one-hundred and fifty references to God’s Kingdom in the New Testament, fifty-two of them in St. Matthew’s gospel alone. The more Jesus spoke about the Kingdom the more it seemed to His listeners to be an other-worldly place. Perhaps that’s because in a world gone insane, sane things seem to be unreal.

18th Sun [A] 2014
We just heard: Thus says the LORD: All you who are thirsty come to the water! You who have no money, come, receive grain and eat; come, without paying and without cost, drink wine and milk! Why spend your money for what is not bread; your wages for what fails to satisfy? Heed me, and you shall eat well, you shall delight in rich fare. What we are hearing is God’s divine invitation to us. The question is: Do we recognize that? Does it mean anything to us, or are we just not interested?
