Major TV markets would generally include New York, Los Angeles, Chicago or Miami. This
fact alone makes it more difficult in some facets of sports for smaller cities such as Pittsburgh,
Green Bay or Jacksonville to compete in categories such as Cable revenue, Public Relations or
investments in their farm teams of AA ball. When Roberto Clemente died lending aid to
victims of the earthquake in Nicaragua, my memory is that it solidified my support of the
Pittsburgh Pirates. Of course it did not hurt that they surprisingly won the World Series once
over the Yankees and the other time over the Baltimore Orioles. So, a recent article in the July
edition of Columbia, a magazine for the Knights of Columbus caught my eye, because it
featured Danny Murtaugh who had managed the Pirates for some years. He never missed
Sunday Mass, would often attend during the week and invite other coaches to come along. I
must say, I had the same experience when I was stationed at Holy Redeemer in Kissimmee with
the coaches of the Houston Astros during spring training. They were often at the vigil Mass,
depending on the game schedule, but always made a point of remaining in the background. The
nuns where Danny Murtaugh’s children attended elementary school often remarked to the
students, “Watch Danny Murtaugh when he goes to receive the Eucharist. If he can be devout
so can you.” Now, years after Murtaugh died at the age of 59, following the 1976 season, I
wonder if some of us would do well to remember the likes of Danny Murtaugh. Some seem to
miss the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass because of a volleyball tournament, a trip north on I-95 or a
weekend at the beach. As Catholics, we can at times seem very casual in our beliefs. If Christ
did not die on the Cross or rise from the dead, our
Salvation would be a question mark and the Eucharist
would be little more than a mirage. Sanctifying the Sabbath
is, of course, one of the Ten Commandments. If folks in
the public eye make time, our explanations seem feeble at
best. On another note, after winning the World Series, on
a quiet evening at home while reading the sports section,
Danny asked his wife, “Kate, how many great managers do
you think there are in baseball?” Without looking up from
her knitting, Kate replied, ‘”I THINK THERE IS ONE

A Way Of Life For A Grateful Disciple
“For where your treasure is, there also will your heart be.”
Luke 12:34
Jesus encourages us to build up our treasure in
heaven. The world encourages us to build up our
treasure in real estate, investments, and material goods.
How much time are you investing in building up a
worldly treasure? How much time are you investing in
building up a heavenly treasure? To invest more time
in the things of heaven, you must let go of some of the
things of this world.

Un mensaje desde el pequeño Mercado
Mercados de televisión grandes generalmente incluyen New York, Los Angeles, Chicago o
Miami. Este hecho en sí hace más difícil la competencia para las pequeñas ciudades como
Pittsburg, Green Bay o Jacksonville en categorías como ingresos, relaciones públicas o
inversiones en sus equipos AA. Cuando Roberto Clemente murió llevándoles ayuda a las
víctimas del terremoto en Nicaragua, recuerdo que mi apreciación por los Piratas de Pittsburg
se solidificó. Por supuesto que el ganar la Serie Mundial sorpresivamente ante los Yankees y
luego ante los Orioles de Baltimore también ayudó. Así que un reciente artículo en la edición de
julio de Columbia, una revista de los Caballeros de Colón, me llamó la atención porque
presentó a Danny Murtaugh quien fue manager de los Piratas por algunos años. Él nunca se
perdió la Misa Dominical, frecuentemente asistía a misa durante la semana e invitaba a otros
entrenadores a que lo acompañaran. Debo decir que tuve la misma experiencia cuando estuve
en Holy Redeemer en Kissimmee con los entrenadores de los Astros de Houston durante el
entrenamiento de primavera. Estaban frecuentemente en la Misa de vigilia dependiendo del
horario, pero siempre permanecían en la parte de atrás. Las hermanas en la escuela donde
asistieron los hijos de Danny Murtaugh señalaban frecuentemente “observen cómo Murtaugh
recibe la Eucaristía, ya que puede ser tan devoto como tú”. Ahora, años después de que
Murtaugh muriera a la edad de 59, luego de la temporada de 1976, me pregunto si nos haría
bien a algunos de nosotros recordar lo que Danny hacía. Algunos parecen perderse del Santo
Sacrificio de la Misa por un torneo de Volleyball, un viaje al norte por la I-95 o un fin de
semana en la playa. Parecemos muy casuales a veces como católicos en nuestra creencia de que
si Cristo no hubiese muerto en la cruz o resucitado de entre los muertos, nuestra Salvación
estaría sin responder y la Eucaristía no sería más que un espejismo. Santificar el domingo es por
supuesto uno de los Diez Mandamientos, y si personas en la esfera pública sacan tiempo,
nuestras explicaciones parecen por lo menos, débiles. En otra nota, luego de ganar la Serie
Mundial, en una noche tranquila en su casa mientras leía la sección de deportes Danny le
preguntó a su esposa, “Kate, ¿cuántos grandes managers crees que hay en la pelota? Sin dejar
de mirar lo que estaba tejiendo, Kate le contestó, “Yo creo que hay uno menos de lo que tú
