The name "Eloi" refers to the cry of Jesus as He died on the Cross,
"Eloi, Eloi, lema sabachthani?" which is translated
"My God, my God, why have you abandoned me."
A BIG THANK YOU to all of you who have been with me and my wanderings over the past two years. I am told that this is an accomplishment for a blog, especially one by a Catholic priest. I am truly edified by this milestone. May God bless you all!
I have been ordained as a Roman Catholic priest for 22 years and have seen many parishes and had several assignments in the Diocese of Allentown. As of June 2011, I am the Catholic Chaplain at Kutztown University and Albright College, Reading, PA. Born and raised in Bally, PA. I have a BA in Theology/Philosophy and a BA in Elementary Education, as well as a minor in Psychology, from Alvernia University in Reading, Pennsylvania. Prior to entering the seminary, I was a fifth grade Catholic elementary school teacher.
