97% Remain Faithful

So often when news hits the airwaves, we can't let go of it. The events--horrible though they may be--are inflated, drilled, judged, regurgitated ad infinitum. Reality is twisted for the sake of feeding the American hunger for spectacles. This week, America has been graced with an historic visit by... Sign in to see full entry.

Charity

This weekend marks the beginning of the 2008 Bishops Appeal for Catholic Charities here in my diocese. As I've read here in our mini blogosphere recently, apparently we Catholics are a bunch of money-grubbing hypocrites throwing blame, accusation and judgment around like confetti. One writer here...

Addiction

Addiction is the most profound block in humanity’s quest for God. Everyone is afflicted. Everyone. What exactly is addiction?

We Know What We Believe.

Thank God for my friends. They have great sense. For several years now I’ve practiced a form of Hatha Yoga as a means of staying fit and relieving stress. I got into it about a decade ago when I was looking for a method of exercise that would be easy on my knees and back. As a teen I was a catcher... Sign in to see full entry.

"It is not wisdom that saves, it is ignorance."

Such are the words of Fulton J. Sheen in his timeless Lenten reflection The Seven Last Words, first published in 1933. The first of the last words Christ is said to utter from the cross is, "Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do." As I read the reflection, I began to wonder about my...

Mothers And Daughters

Honor Thy Father And Thy Mother...Hah. Moses never met my mother. This is a woman that spends her free time thinking of ways to make her children miserable. Believe it.

Climbing To The Mountaintop

Saturday morning I dropped my apprehensive husband off at his very first "Renewal" experience. He was open to it, but he had reservations. A Saturday night away from his wife topped his list of reasons to not go. He went anyway. "I was counting down the minutes yesterday when you dropped me off," he... Sign in to see full entry.

A Tool Of Sacramental Proportions

After a two-day discussion with one of my favorite writers here on Blogit, I decided to buy a book by a rather controversial figure in the world of religion. While I enjoy the works of my dear friend gomedome, I don't always agree with him, simply because we have very different belief systems. I... Sign in to see full entry.

The Reality Of Non-Belief In The Modern World

Both here and in the real world, there is a group of individuals that either do not believe God exists, or seriously question the possibility of an all-knowing, ever-loving God. The reasons, I've come to learn through dialogue with people holding these kinds of beliefs about God, are as varied as... Sign in to see full entry.

My Personal Stations

One of the many endeavors in which I have my hot little hands is the writing of prayers. Not the little before and after meals ditties that the nuns of old forced us all to memorize, but serious reflections that have been used in a variety of settings. So today, I share with you the first of a... Sign in to see full entry.
