If you want to know how to meditate, this is for you

If you want to know how to meditate, this is for you

Praying the Word of God, meditating on the Scriptures, entering into the life of Jesus in the Gospels…. We are told how important it is to pray in this way so that we will mature in Christ, transformed in the Spirit.But when we sit down to meditate, we might discover we don’t know how. That how is what Saint Ignatius Loyola learned and then taught to millions who followed him when we was alive, and those of us who have followed his guidance since. For five centuries the teachings of...

St Ignatius of Loyola: Master of Prayer

St Ignatius of Loyola: Master of Prayer

Once on a retreat I was finding prayer difficult. I felt dull, held back, resistant. I was praying with a passage from the Gospel of Mark, one of those simple passages about Jesus teaching and healing the crowds.As I was meditating on the Gospel passage, I imagined myself in the crowd. Suddenly Jesus approached me and took me by the hand. He started to walk with me so fast down the road that I could barely keep up. Just the two of us were on this lightning journey. I realized I couldn’t ke...

Does Jesus Speak To Us?

Does Jesus Speak To Us?

When Gabrielle Bossis was 62 years old, aboard a ship midway between Europe and Canada, she began to hear the voice of God. From that moment until her death in 1950, she kept a near-daily record of what she heard, transcribing her conversations with him word-for-word. She eventually shared these intimate moments of prayer in a book entitled He and I which quickly became a classic of spirituality. A successful playwright and extensive traveler, Bossis was an unconventional mystic, ...

Saint John the Baptist: New Graphic Novel

Saint John the Baptist: New Graphic Novel

I must have been about eight years old when I first started creating comics. I remember drawing the adventures of a group of superheroes who would fight giant monsters and evil robots. I understand now why I was attracted to comics at such a young age. It’s the same reason that people of all ages and across many different cultures are drawn to comics—drawing, the heart of comic-making, is a universal language. Before humans could read or write, they were drawing on cave walls.My appr...

Feast of Corpus Christi: Thank Jesus for the Gift of Himself

This Sunday we celebrate a special feast day—a solemnity, actually, which ranks above the Twelfth Sunday of Ordinary Time that would normally fall on this Sunday. It’s the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ, also known as Corpus Christi.Not many people know that this feast is due to the initiative of a woman in the 13th century, St. Juliana of Cornillon. Or, rather, it’s due to the initiative of God, who inspired Juliana, who then acted on this inspir...

Visionary Women: Women's History Month

Visionary Women: Women's History Month

Being a film reviewer, it’s thrilling to see Hollywood come out with more films by and about women, such as the Oscar-winning Roma, Leave No Trace, The Hate U Give, and Captain Marvel. I also come into contact with many amazing women storytellers in the film industry, those who seek to bring about change and truly a better world for all. So many recent and not-so-recent films present women characters that lead efforts to promote peace, end war, and pioneer nonviolence as a solution to conf...

Plan of Life 2019

Plan of Life 2019

“Come to me, all of you,” Jesus said to then-sixteen-year-old James Alberione. It was December 31, 1900, the famous “Night Between the Centuries” when James was praying in the Cathedral of Alba. “Come to me, all of you.” James, I want you to bring me all the people of this new century. I want them all, and I want you to bring them to me using the “new means” of communication. But first I want you to bring me yourself, James...

You are stopped in your tracks. A spouse leaves. A friend dies. A job is lost. Opportunities pass you by. A child makes decisions that break your heart. As you absorb the pain of what is happening, the important things begin to surface. What was hidden, suddenly s...

Confessions of a Chesterton Geek

Confessions of a Chesterton Geek

I’m one of those people who, for a long time, claimed to love G. K. Chesterton without ever having read anything he wrote. I liked the idea of him, and since I was a theology major I pretended to know all about him when he came up in conversation. But it wasn’t until my junior year of college that I decided to stop posing and actually pick up one of his books.I reluctantly borrowed Orthodoxy from my dad, expecting to be bored out of my mind. I couldn’t have been more wrong. Aft...
