The Apology

I have had to make this type of post to often and it bothers me, because I hate not doing something I love and something that I feel is important. Over these last few months, life has been a little bumpy not because of exterior happiness, interiorly. I lost my daily rhythm and suffice it to say my priorities have gotten out of whack. BUT NOW IT’S LENT! I hope to take this time and use it wisely to reassert my priorities, which after the roller coaster ride of my own handling of life will be difficult.

Some of you, my friends, will wonder, “what is he talking about?”Don’t worry about it. I just let life take control and went along for the ride and didn’t allow the Lord to order my life. I let life order my life. In other words, I need to pray more, listen more, love more. When I don’t do that, well, my interior life suffers, which then effects every other area.

So I apologize, that I haven’t posted anything in a month and a half. Lent is here and it is the time to reorder life. Put first things first and less important things on the back burner.  (Although I have given a social media for Lent, you can remind me to post through the contact button at the top right hand side of the page.)

These are my hopes for Lent. I’d love to here yours.

About Fr. Kyle

I am a priest of the Archdiocese of New Orleans. I was born and raised right outside New Orleans. I attended Catholic school my entire educational career. By the time I graduated high school, I had two paths to choose: rockstar or priesthood. I pursued both for awhile but eventually came to the understanding God's will was priesthood and my will was rockstardom. After making that decision, to allow God's will to be mine, I needed a new way to channel my creativity. I began writing as I finished up my formation for priesthood. I still play music, but priestly ministry comes first. My bride: St. Rita of Cascia Parish in Harahan, LA.

    Did my inner thoughts and feelings somehow find a way to comingle with yours? What I’ve learned about myself and my frailties in the last 2 years is that when i place all of life’s “urgent” matters before God, i am ill and anxious. Lent is my “favorite” time. God calls me to be naked without shame and to look to him for true peace and direction. I know he has great plans for me and i MUST be still and listen.
