If there are the sounds of a lively discussion mixed with hearty laughter and the aroma of a good cigar, Father James can't be too far away. His priestly service has taken him to four different countries, many parish settings, and in contact with more friends that rivals most politicians. One of his favorite quotes: "Let your religion be less of a theory and more of a love affair." - G. K. Chesterton
Father James is the Pastor of Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church in Corpus Christi, Texas. Visit him on the web for his Sunday homilies at http:// www.fatherjames.org.

Balancing the Material and the Spiritual
The equilibrium of Catholicism is explained today by Father James. It is the both/and approach to all of reality. Catholicism celebrates the physical as a gift from God, but it points our direction to the things of God as our treasure and the pearl of great price. During the Collect of today's Mass, the priest prays: "we may use the good things that pass in such a way as to hold fast even now to those that ever endure."
