Learning from Jewish Prayer

Some passages in the Bible are like family arguments. Take, for instance, Jeremiah—not someone we’d call a polite person. He stomps and shouts not only at the ways of the people, but also at God. A brief example: You are always righteous, Lord… yet I would speak with you about your justice: Why does the way of the wicked prosper? Why do all the... [Read more...]

Loss of indoor plumbing and ice cream aside, who can deny how wonderful it would be to have been there in person? To witness the miracles, to hear his voice,... [Read more...]

Saint Rose’s Christian Kool-Aid

Saint Rose of Lima

“Don’t drink the kool-aid!” Saint Paul tells us in the Epistle for today’s Mass. He warns the Thessalonians “not to be shaken out of [their] minds suddenly” by doomsday cultists claiming that the coming of the Lord is “at hand.” Many of the early Christians, especially those who knew Our Lord personally, were anticipating His second coming to be within their own lifetimes. But as the years passed it became clearer that we might be... [Read more...]
