Easy to take for granted

May 27, 2018
Archbishop Paul S. Coakley

All of us are creatures of habit. The habits we form become part of the daily rhythm of our lives. We may not even be aware of these habits until something disrupts our routine. Part of my morning routine is to grab the morning paper from the driveway before my first cup of coffee.

The day is off to a rocky start when, for one reason or another, the paper is delayed. Maybe I’m old school, but I like to spend time with the paper before starting my day. That’s not to say that I haven’t grown accustomed to using various smart devices or my laptop for accessing digital media or tuning in to my favorite radio stations for programming so I can stay connected.

Es fácil dar por hecho

27 de Mayo, 2018
Arzobispo Pablo S. Coakley

Todos somos criaturas de hábito. Los hábitos que formamos se vuelven parte del ritmo diario de nuestras vidas. Es posible que ni siquiera estemos conscientes de estos hábitos hasta que algo interrumpa nuestra rutina. Parte de mi rutina matutina es tomar el periódico matutino antes de tomar mi primera taza de café.

El día ha tenido un comienzo difícil cuando, por una razón u otra, el periódico se retrasa. Tal vez soy de la vieja escuela, pero me gusta pasar tiempo con el periódico antes de comenzar mi día. Eso no quiere decir que no me haya acostumbrado a usar varios dispositivos inteligentes o mi computadora portátil para acceder a medios digitales o sintonizar mis programas radiales favoritos para mantenerme conectado.
