Brokeness. I've experienced it on a recent trip to Trinidad during which I had time to attend a prayer meeting there and having the opportunity to pray for so many wonderful people who came forward with various degrees of 'brokeness'...
I've had to make an unexpected trip to Trinidad to see my mother who had to have emergency surgery. She is in a stable but serious condition to date. In the course of my short stay I've had the opportunity to see lot's of family and old friends who have come to the hospital to visit. And I have come to realize that though years have passed and situations have changed that we still all have great commonality in faith...
I remember looking on CNN as the Berlin Wall came down; facinated because I never imagined I would witness the end of The Cold War that way. Actually it was the beginning of the end of the Cold War, but I was present (unnuked) in this moment of history. Now there seems to be a new Cold War developing; this time not between superpower nations but within THE only superpower nation. Yep, you betcha, as SP would say right here in the good ole USA....
Hi, welcome to my weekly blog. I'm deacon Michel and I love blogging and the healthy exchange of constructive ideas. Now my mind has been known to wander on a million different things all at once so don't be surprised at what you find here. I often scratch my head and go 'Huh?' at my own thoughts. Feel free to leave a comment and share your thoughts with me.
This blog reflects MY ongoing Christian journey: insights gained through the Holy Spirit, my experiences, my studies, my relationships. The content of this website is solely that of Deacon Michel du Chaussee, and does not represent the Archdiocese of Miami or any other entity of the Roman Catholic Church in any official capacity. Needless to say, I hope that none of my writings are contrary to the doctrines of faith and morals that are reflected in Sacred Tradition or as taught and guarded by the Magisterium of the Church or to the truths of God as revealed in the Holy Scriptures.
For I take seriously what a very wise man has often said to me:
