Take Up Your Cross Daily

And he said to all: If any man will come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me. Lu 9:23 " Follow me." This was the Lord's invitation to the first disciples. He called them from their work to walk behind him in the manner of students so as to be with him, so that... Sign in to see full entry.

The Total Christ

The doctrine of the Totus Christus is Augustinian; it is the result of Augustine's continued reflection on the Pauline theological insight on the Body of Christ and the Johanine chapters on the Eucharist (John 6) and the vital relationship between Christ and his disciples in the "Vine and the...

A conversation in heaven about us

The Bosnia-Croatia Bible website has a good parable about what the Lord did for us. The first time I saw it, I was reminded of what Scott Hahn was talking about this afternoon during an EWTN program: "He paid for a debt He did not owe because we owed a debt we could not pay."

This Thing About Religion

A lot of people don't realize that talk about religion as opposed to non-religion only came out as a result of the rise of atheism. And atheism is very recent, a creation of Western civilization. The motivations for this come from the 18th century with the rise of rationalism. Previous to this,... Sign in to see full entry.

Interview About The Priesthood: Questions I Would Have Liked To Answer

Interviews about the priesthood especially when done by students doing an assignment are predictable.

The Jesus Seminar

I've been reading Lee Strobel's " A Case for Jesus." I was surprised to find out that in matters of Christology, I've been un-updated!

In The Beginning, A Love Story

I was reading Matthew's account of the conception of the Lord and it struck me that at the beginning of the Incarnation of the Word of God, there is a love story: that of Joseph and Mary. The biblical narratives don't give us much. But the line where it says that Joseph, instead of denouncing Mary... Sign in to see full entry.
