We Are Wonderfully Made

We Are Wonderfully Made

Sing to the Lord a new song, his praise in the assembly of the faithful. Let Israel be glad in its maker, the people of Zion rejoice in their king. Let them praise his name in dance, make music with tambourine and lyre. For the Lord takes delight in his people, honors the poor with victory. Ps 149:1–4 (NABRE) God loves us as if we were the center of his universe! We who have died and risen with Christ, we in whom the Son abides, we for whom Jesu...

My Baptism Bible

My Baptism Bible

The most intense experience of God we can have in our lives is when we celebrate a sacrament. It might be hard to believe, because receiving Holy Communion or going to confession doesn’t always feel like an intense experience of God.

As I began reading it I was struck by the Pope's opening reflection on light and thought it was perfect for this first of our summer editions. He states at the outset that the pagan world hungered for light and developed the cult of the sun god, Sol Invictus, whom they invoked each day at sunrise. As much as the sun...

Strength in Weakness

Strength in Weakness

We all have things in our past that haunt us – friends we’ve lost, cruel things we have said, inexcusable things we have done. St. Paul knew this feeling, the feeling of having squandered something that cannot be restored, the feeling of having done something that can not be taken back.  In the Book of Acts, Stephen is “full of grace and power,” and does “great wonders and signs among the people” (Acts 6:8). But the people believe that Stephen is blaspheming when he preaches about Jesus a...
