The Cross and Desalination

Br. Joseph wrote about offering it up and relaxation a few weeks ago. My consideration today will focus in a little bit more on hardships offered up. Maybe you heard your parents or grandparents use the classic Catholic expression “offer it up”. But what does it mean and how does it work? It’s not a command to “be tougher” or to “feel... [Read more...]

Even God himself tells his people that they will rue the day that they asked for a king (1 Samuel 8). And yet, the Lord God is called... [Read more...]

Christianity in Diversity

Praying before a Crucifix.

In our contemporary culture, one Christian claim is harder than all others for people to accept: that Christianity is not merely true, but that it is the truth. Few deny that Christ is a helpful guide or an admirable model, but they also avoid those heavy words of his: “I am the way, and the truth, and the life.” I once explained my religious vocation to an old high school friend. He understood my sincerity, but his response was, “Yeah, but... [Read more...]
