By Br. Jim Miller, MSC  A Brother’s perspective: “Who do people say the Son of man is?” This is a good question to ponder during our Lenten sojourn and hopefully one that we will be able to answer by the time we complete our life here on this beautiful earth that God has created for…

I have not come to call the righteous to repentance, but sinners.” (Lk. 5:31-32) Sometimes we, too, think like the Pharisees and scribes and complain against our fellow brethren.
