  • The Good Old Days

    by Olu Brown
    Don’t be discouraged and don’t be afraid, because God is with you; God promised to never leave nor forsake you - even in difficult times. It reminds me of the words of one of my favorite poems by one of my favorite poets, Langston Hughes, in his poem “Mother to Son”: Well, son, I’ll tell you: Life for me ain’t been no crystal stair. It’s had tacks in it, And splinters, And boards torn up, And places with no carpet on the floor - Bare.

He had been ordained for more than 50 years and had, during all those years, been exemplary, honest, faithful, and generous. He was deeply respected. Now, in his late 70s, legally blind and semi-retired, he celebrated mass every day, heard occasional confessions, and spent most of the rest of his time praying. I was taken by his goodness. One evening, sitting with him, I asked him: “Father, if you had your life as a priest to live over again, would you do anything different?” Given his obvious goodness and fidelity, I was expecting him to say no. His answer surprised me. He said, I would be a gentler with people the next time...
