Why this blog

Ranger Station

When I was seventeen, I started keeping a journal. I’ve kept it ever since. The original idea was to track developments in a promising year. It was necessarily a private exercise and has remained so ever since. Lately, though, I’ve realized that I’ve never written purely for myself (if for no one else, I’ve written for future grandchildren), and that there is something strange about filling books with words no one reads. So I’ve decided to start this blog (awful word) to share a bit more. In good conscience, I can’t do otherwise. Whatever light is in me didn’t start with me and isn’t mine to keep.

  1. Hey Tim, I found your blog after Marty Mullaney asked me if you had written anything lately. Glad to see you venturing into the blogosphere. Hope you and the family are well and that ’14 is full of blessings for you.

  2. Timothy, Read your article, Rediscovering Jesus, in the March 16 issue of America. I can’t express how well I thought it was written and how profoundly I am being affected by its contents. I’m a 74-year old, married, Jesuit educated on-again, off-again practicing Catholic. Have you watched Nova’s THE SECRETS OF THE VATICAN on my computer (PBS.org) was probably. Makes one want to nail a new 95 theses on the doors of St. Peter’s. Anyway, for the first time in my life I’ve read something about believing in Jesus and forming a relationship with Him that makes sense (I actually have contacted my local parish church about joining its Divorce Recovery Ministry. I’m not a joiner; never, ever. But I’ve read your article three or four times and find myself wanting to give back. Thank you.

    • Dear Mr. Geoghegan, thank you for your kind words. The Lord obviously has plans for you! I’m glad my article was helpful in this renewed encounter. There was a time in my life when I thought such a relationship was not possible, but then Christ showed me otherwise. I’ve never regretted any step ever taken in his direction. I expect you are finding and will find the same. God bless you!
