Just yesterday, Pope Francis addressed the Patrons of the Arts in the Vatican Museums and said about beauty, our theme for today, "In every age the Church upon the arts to give expression to the beauty of her faith and to proclaim the Gospel message of the grandeur of God's creation, the dignity of human beings made in his image and likeness, and the power of Christ's death and resurrection." Today Sr. Mary Lea Hill led us in discovering beauty through art as it is lived out in the Pauline ...

What is Cinema Divina?
What is Cinema Divina? By Sister Rose Pacatte Lectio DivinaCinema Divina is drawn from the ancient practice of lectio divina. This spiritual practice is a firm portal by which we can engage our noisy, over-stimulating, and technologically mediated world. Lectio divina, and by extension, cinema divina, can lead us to spiritual growth and sharing our light with the world.The basic principle of lectio divina is that it is an authentic encounter with God through the Scriptures. Lectio divina means s...

After yesterday's marathon, I think we need to establish some ground rules.Here's Rule #1: Get used to it.Right now things feel a bit like that little pirogue I paddled off in one fine summer morning when I was a postulant home for a family visit. I pull...

The second is an interview he granted Eugenio Scalfari, an Italian journalist, in the same setting as the three day interview with his fellow Jesuit, Antonio Spadaro. I find it amusing that the Pope, who makes good use of his own cell phone, called to offer Scalfari an appointment, but had to wait to be "put through" to the journalist by the newspaper man's nervous secretary.There are things in tha...
