Glimpses, by Fr. Larry Gillick, S.J.

The eye, the ear, the finger tip take into our minds "Sound bites" to which we listen or neglect.  This weekly column of Glimpses will begin with a smell or taste, a touch or noise which has caused a smile or frown or gasp or stoppage in my play of life.

The column is based on the Ignatian insight that God's love's-labors are lost only on the inattentive and that God's love's-labors are repeated in the multiform of creation and relationships to catch our attention.  Each column will be just a glimpse which tripped my snooze alarm and invited me to wake up and live a little more deeply.

April 26, 2016:  A Message From Fr. Larry Gillick, S.J.:  

I have enjoyed writing these Glimpses for the past two years and have appreciated the kind responses to them.  My time-schedule has gotten the best of me. I will write others as time and glimpses allow. You can find back postings of the Glimpses here on the website. Thank you.
