Evangelical Simplicity and Learning to See Lazarus Watch

Image of There was a rich man who dressed in purple garments and fine linen and dined sumptuously each day. And lying at his door was a poor man named Lazarus, covered with sores, who would gladly have eaten his fill of the scraps that fell from the rich man's table. Dogs even used to come and lick his sores. When the poor man died, he was carried away by angels to the bosom of Abraham

Learning to See the Lord With the Eyes of Living Faith Watch

Image of Learning to 'see the Lord' calls for our free cooperation with grace. We need to acknowledge our sin, admit our weakness and invite the Lord into our lives. Jesus is always revealing Himself to the humble, to those who truly want to see Him.

Jesus wants you and me to see Him. He is not hidden. He is seen by those who have eyes which are opened by living faith. He is showing ... continue reading


Rejecting Christian Atheism Watch

Image of The apathy we see among some today in the Church is not new. In Revelation, Jesus addressed the Church of Ephesus with a similar concern. While being faithful to carrying out the proper functioning of a church, he said,

How easy it is to attend Mass weekly, have our kids in CCD, render some service in the parish and yet live out most of our daily life as if ... continue reading

TUESDAY HOMILY: Building and Rebuilding the Church

Image of In the Gospel, Jesus speaks about the Temple He seeks to build as a family. When Jesus was told that his Mother and relatives were outside the crowded house where he was teaching and healing wishing to see him, Jesus used it as an opportunity to say that he can come from heaven to earth to found a family. That family would be characterized by particular behavior:

Just as the Temple in Jerusalem needed to be restored with hard work, incredible generosity, and perseverance, so each of us and the Church ... continue reading

A Spirituality of Encounter. Pope Francis and the Woman Who Anointed the Feet of Jesus Watch

Image of That path of encounter proceeds along a life of prayer, adoration, contemplation and love. Her posture before the Lord, her response to Beauty and Love Incarnate, her honest self-understanding, her quick repentance; these are our Gospel lessons today. Let us come before the Lord, who is truly present to us as we receive Him in the most Holy Eucharist, and experience the encounter of encounters. Let us take Him into ourselves and become what we receive. Let us discover the spirituality, the way, of encounter.

The Woman whose story is told even to this day, as Jesus promised it would be, saw Jesus for who he is and was changed in ... continue reading
