Reiser’s Ramblings” is a collection of daily/weekly editations/devotions ~ daily reflections from the best columns written over the past three decades by Father Bernard Reiser, founding pastor of Epiphany Parish in Coon Rapids, MN. In the book, find Fr. Reiser’s take on everyday topics such as family, kindness, gratitude, prayer, helping others, and staying focused on what’s important in life. Fr. Reiser’s essays are rich in symbolism, wise in understanding of human nature, and fruitful in explicating the word of God.

The columns are separated into six sections: Early Life and Key Influences; The Wonder of God's Creation; Our Place in God's World; Counting Our Blessings; God's Grace at Work Within Us; All Eyes on Heaven. Each column is titled and short. So we end up with reminiscences and a lovely book of short, easily read edifying stories and thoughtsExcerpts from Eric Hoffer Book Award Review of “Reiser’s Ramblings” “A collection of weekly newsletter columns; a mixture of humorous, sad, nostalgic and inspirational pieces. By turns thoughtful, provocative, or just plain funny, it is the kind of book one can sample, read and reread, or share stories from with family and friends. It is nicely illustrated with black and white photos and drawings. The columns are short, but memorable, and always provide something to think about or learn from. Never stuffy or preachy, Reiser has created an enjoyable reflection of life.”

All profits from the sale of Reiser’s Ramblings go to Haitian relief efforts sponsored by Reiser Relief.


Excerpt

My first memories go back to the farm where my parents, Aloys and Ottilia Reiser, raised me, my brother, and my three sisters during the Great Depression.

My father was a truck farmer, meaning the vegetables and meat he raised was trucked into the Minneapolis Farmers Market for sale every day. Farming was a difficult way to support a family during the Great Depression yet my father never faltered in his faith that God would provide for us. My father never said, “We’ll try” when telling us something needed to get done. Instead, he told us, “We will!” This lesson in perseverance was one all of his children took to heart.

The little parish we attended in Medina, Minnesota, was called Holy Name, a small country parish of seventy families with a parish school of about eighty students, divided into two classrooms. We attended Holy Name through eighth grade and learned our lessons so well that we outpaced our public school classmates once we moved onto Wayzata High School.

It was at home on our family farm and at events in our small parish where I developed my love for God and the Catholic faith. My parents worked hard, fed us well, loved us and loved each other. Never once did I hear my parents quarrel.

I was ordained in 1949 and have devoted the remainder of my life to the faith, serving God’s people, ministering, presiding over baptisms, marriages and funerals, lifting up the needy, helping the poor.

Since my ordination, I have traveled around the globe, witnessed dramatic world events, built up God’s church to the best of my ability, and paused once a week to jot down my thoughts on it all. In this first section, I share some of my columns to give you an idea about the early influences that shaped me.
