When I was ordained as a Permanent Catholic Deacon in 2004, Gerry and Kristin gave me a simple greeting card. Inside it read: “DeaconRey.com… it’s yours.” What a great gift. A URL. A website. A way to express myself in whatever way I wanted… and to the whole world. This, I learned, is not an easy thing to do. It takes a willingness to take some risks, persistence and not a small dose of ego to create and maintain a personal website. In any event, here it is. As you’ll no doubt recognize, it’s a constant work in progress.
You’ll see large scale lapses in the timeline. That’s a function of changing blogging platforms and losing some original content as well as the fact that for many years in the interim, I didn’t write down homilies, choosing instead to compose them in thought and prayer only. Once delivered, they quickly faded from memory.
I hope you’ll consider following deaconrey.com and please feel free to comment on these posts.
