What should happen to the San Pedro smokestack off the Harbor Freeway?

On Facebook, the Northwest San Pedro Neighborhood Council asks a great question:

 

What do you think should happen to the smokestack off the 110 freeway on the sanitation yard, that says "San Pedro"? Remove, keep, fix up?

This caught my attention because I read with some alarm about the…

Whale Killed by Ship Ends Up at White's Point

I didn’t hear the phone ring Sunday morning, but I slowly started to let go of my dreams as I heard fragments of a conversation that ended in “…we’ll be right there. Thanks for reporting it.” My eyes weren’t open yet when Diane said; “that was Matt (Christopherson); a Cabrillo Marine Aquarium volunter reported a dead marine mammal at White’s Point; larger than a sea lion but he can’t tell what it is.”

 

As we…

Pastor's Message: Third Easter Sunday

May 8, 2011

Third Sunday of Easter: Acts 2:14, 22-33; 1 Pt 1:17-21: Lk 24:13-35



Today’s Gospel has the story of the road to Emmaus. I am always reminded of a poster I had in the confessional of my first parish of an idyllic autumn road with the inscription, “Happiness is not found at the end of the journey, but along the way.” The two disciples were definitely not on the road to happiness. They were walking away from

Jerusalem, confused and dismayed. Only one of them is named,… Continue

Capitalism, democracy and human resources

I’m a small business owner, and like most Americans, I believe in capitalism. There’s no better economic system for taking advantage of every person’s ability to create value for society. Also, like most Americans, I believe in democracy: government by and for the benefit of all citizens; that grants every individual the opportunity to strive for life, liberty and…

Cabrillo Marine Aquarium floating oceanography lab coming up May 15

As soon as we got to the ocean from scenic Alamitos Bay we found a pod of long-beaked common dolphins on last year’s See the Sea, Si? trip aboard the 118-foot RV “Challenger.” Soon we were surrounded by dozens of leaping dolphins.

 

As fun and exciting as a dolphin encounter is, the experience was not difficult to top during the remainder of the three-hour trip. We pulled up many different species of very…

How did you hear of the assassination of Osama Bin Laden?

How did you hear of the assassination of Osama Bin Laden?



I experienced the news via Twitter!



White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer tweeted just after 9:45 p.m., "POTUS to address the nation tonight at 10:30 PM Eastern Time."



10:30 p.m. on Sunday night? I feared that it could be one of those "there is an astroid headed for Earth" kind of press conferences.



I turned on CNN to hear Wolf…

Pastor's Message

May 1, 2011

Acts 5:12-16; Rev 1:9-11a 17-19; Jn 20:19-31



If there is any passage that Catholics should put to memory I believe that it should be today’s Gospel, John 20:19-24. John’s Gospel has Jesus giving the sacraments of Holy Orders, Confirmation and Penance on the night of the resurrection. The disciples still do not understand the events that have taken place; they are in the upper room afraid with the doors locked. The gospel says that the doors are locked for fear of the… Continue

Easter Sunday: Solemnity of the Resurrection of The Lord

Acts 10:34a, 37-43; Col 3:1-4; Jn 20:1-9



Last August 5th, we remember the thirty-tree miners who were trapped in the collapsed mine in Chile. At first we believed this to be another tragic mining accident with no hope of survival. Miraculously, after seventeen days a note was retrieved from a probe dug deep in the mine with the words written by one of the trapped

miners in red letters, "All 33 of us… Continue

Palm Sunday of the Lord’s Passion:  Mt 21:1-11; Is 50:4-7; Phil 2:6-11; Mt 26:14—27:66

 

Today, Palm Sunday or Passion Sunday we enter into the Holiest Week of our Church Calendar.  We begin Mass today with a short procession to the center of the Church where we read the first Gospel and bless the Palms.  We remember that Jesus entered the City of Jerusalem with great acclaim. “The very large crowd spread their cloaks on the road, while others cut branches from the… Continue

the Raising of Lazarus

April 10, 2011

Fifth Sunday of Lent: Ez 37:12-14; Rom 8:8-11; Jn 11:1-45

 

Today at Mass we hear the story of the Raising of Lazarus.  On a surface level this is the story of Jesus raising to life a friend who had died. Jesus is notified about the illness and eventual death of a dear friend and after a short delay, decides to go to visit the family.  His…

Fireworks in San Pedro and Los Angeles

Despite the fact that fireworks are banned in Los Angeles and many of its sister cities, they really know how to do the Fourth of July right. My wife loves firework displays. In LA alone, we've seen fireworks from the Colorado St. bridge in Pasadena for the Rose Bowl show and from the deck of a home in the Palos Verdes hills watching the panorama from Carson's Home Depot to San Pedro's Queen Mary. We watched the Culver City show with neighbors from a bridge over Ballona Creek. Nothing beats…See More
