General Audience

St Peter’s Square Wednesday, 20 March 2019 Dear Brothers and Sisters: In our continuing catechesis on the “Our Father”, we now turn to the third invocation, “thy will be done”. We see God’s will revealed in the person of Jesus: to seek out and to save that which is lost. If we do not appreciate this we risk misunderstanding the meaning of the third aspect of the “Our Father”. We can affirm, however, without a doubt, that God’s will is indeed for the salvation of all mankind. Our prayer, then, is...

Adoration Is an Invitation to a Transfiguration Experience

I was at a weekend retreat gathering of priests and religious some years ago. One of the elderly priest-attendees remarked how times had changed. He said that many years ago when priests and religious gathered in a place, the first thing that they would ask is where the chapel was located in the building so that they could spend some moments of Eucharistic adoration. But now, when priests and religious gather together in a place, they first ask for the Wi-Fi password and the place in the house w...

‘Just Have More Faith’: How Bad Theology Hurts the Suffering

Why does God answer yes to some prayers and no to others? Why does God miraculously heal some people and not others? Why does disaster strike one city and not another? I’ve been pondering these questions since Hurricane Florence devastated much of Eastern North Carolina last year. I live in the center of the state, and contrary to the foreboding predictions, we were relatively unaffected. In response, a friend said, “I know why we were spared catastrophe and the storm circled our area and w...

Behold the Anciente Mappe of Fairyland, a Fantastical 1917 Mashup of Tales from Homer’s Odyssey, King Arthur, the Brothers Grimm & More

For most of publishing history, books for children meant primers and preachy religious texts, not mythical worlds invented just for kids. It’s true that fairy tales may have been specifically targeted to the young, but they were never childish. (See the original Grimms' tales.) By the 19th century, however, the situation had dramatically changed. And by the turn of the century, childlike fairy stories and fantasies enjoyed wide popularity among grown-ups and children alike, just as they do toda...

Cry Out rallies prayer around Arab Bedouins during Lent

Middle East North Africa (MNN) -- Christians worldwide are observing Lent, a 40-day period spanning from March 6 to April 19. Specific reasons vary, but most believers generally view Lent as a time for reflection and practicing spiritual disciplines. While Lent is often associated with fasting, prayer is also a critical component of the season.  Cry Out is offering a free 40-day prayer guide during Lent that focuses on the Arab Bedouins.  Speaking on behalf of Cry Out, Peter* says, “This is...

Boundaries Will Not Cure Codependency: Interview with Rosaria Butterfield

I can tell you anything. No one understands me like you do. I don’t know what I would do without you. I’m so glad we struggle with the same sins. It makes me know that I’m not alone. Perhaps some trace of these statements sounds familiar to all of us, but when they characterize the tenor of our relationships, we have a problem. Codependency stems from an epidemic — a crisis that has quietly crept into our churches. Rosaria Butterfield calls it the “crisis of loneli...

Today's Read: The Man with No Face by Peter May

Imagine that you're a Scottish journalist on assignment to investigate the political climate in Brussels as the UK is on the verge of joining the European Union. What would you do if the journalist you're supposed to meet up with is found dead alongside a high-ranking British government official? You would likely stick around to figure out what happened. That's what protagonist Neil Bannerman does. Here's how the book starts: Kale watched the train through the rain-spattered glass and th...

The Story of Marriage in Seven Verses

Recently I married an unusually mature couple. Both groom and bride were in their late thirties. They had waited with admirable patience. Both were established in life and in faith, and they knew where they each stood: together on God’s word. Few couples, if any, that I’ve married have demonstrated such clear, solid, stable footing together on the rock of what God has said in the Bible. So, it didn’t surprise me that when I asked them to pick a favorite passage or two for the wedding, they ...

5 Ways to Re-enchant Your World

This post is written by Paul M. Gould, author of Cultural Apologetics, a new book, video lecture series, and course, and is sponsored by Zondervan Academic. T he dominant way of perceiving today can be described as disenchanted. For many, the world is not seen in its proper light. We think the world is ordinary, or every day, or mundane. But this is not what the world is actually like. In reality, the world is deeply beautiful. It is mysterious. It is sacred. It is a gift. Wha...

Shining Grief

Many years ago my housemate* badly broke her ankle. This was in the days before social media, so while folks might have had cell phones or email, there was no easy way to set up a central location to asynchronously share information on demand.   On the day she went into surgery, my husband was the contact point at the hospital. He called me at home with updates so her family and friends could then call me to see how she was doing. It was a stressful and worrisome time.   I spend the day do...

Lent & the Light of the Transfiguration

At the Transfiguration, God told the apostles: “This is My chosen Son; listen to Him.”  Why did they need this Divine exhortation? Gospel (Read Lk 9:28b-36) St. Luke tells us about a most extraordinary episode in today’s Gospel.  We know it as the Transfiguration, when Jesus was temporarily revealed to Peter, James, and John (and through them, later, to us) in His glory—“dazzling white” light in His face and clothing.  His humanity wasn’t blotted out; rather, it was changed in a way the apostl...

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and Great Expectations

Everything Can Turn Into Prayer

To remain in a state of prayer, it is not necessary to be always actively praying. Every action done for God rises to His throne as an act of homage. It constitutes a lifting up of our whole being to His supreme majesty, a recognition — which, although not always explicit, is nonetheless real — of His sovereign due, and is the filial act of the creature offering everything to his Creator and his Father. In practice, what is required of one who wishes to pray always? He must give to each of his i...
