The US unemployment rate won't return to its pre-pandemic level this decade, according to the government's official scorekeeper

Nick Oxford/The Washington Post/Getty Images The Congressional Budget Office forecasted that the unemployment rate will not fall below the 3.5% it once was in February 2020 for the rest of the decade.

How Bishop Sheen Helped Me to Reconcile With the Blessed Mother

Have you ever wondered what it means to be a child of God? The Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches us that through baptism, we become “an adopted child of God, who has become a partaker of the divine nature, member of Christ and co-heir with him, and a temple of the Holy Spirit.” (CCCC 1265)    Similarly, the Church teaches us that when Our Blessed Lord spoke these words from the Cross: “Woman behold your son, Son behold your Mother” (Jn. 19:26), that we were given at that moment, the t...

Is It Worth the Work?

I thought I was over the hurt. I was sure I had moved on, but as I slipped my thumb under the seal of the invitation to my ten-year college reunion, I realized I had not forgiven her. During our last semester at school, harsh tones and accusing anger from a friend had been more than I could handle, especially in the middle of my battle with depression. I was living with deep soul-sadness and overwhelming self-doubt I couldn’t explain or escape. When my friend questioned something I’d done, it wa...

The Love of God for Repentant Sinners

Consider the old saying: “If a man divorces his wife and she goes from him and becomes another man’s wife, will he return to her? Would not that land be greatly polluted?” And you, sinning soul, “you have played the harlot with many lovers” (Jer. 3:1). It is not I who have left you, says the Lord. No, I am a faithful spouse, one who never sues for divorce. But you, faithless soul, you have abandoned me and given yourself not to a single lover, but to thousands upon thousands of corruptors. Never...

Reconciliation: Reflecting God’s Fullness Together

Pemberton (M.T.S., Duke Divinity School), minister for university engagement at First Presbyterian Church of Berkeley, Calif., contemplating reconciliation through the lens of C.S.

Reconcile

Matthew 5:21-26   I just made a phone call this morning that I have been dreading for a couple of weeks.  I did not have a conversation, I left a message. But already I feel a little better.   The person I called is someone to whom I made a promise that I didn’t keep.  I am terribly sorry about this and want to make amends, but I fear the encounter.  It will be scary to ask for forgiveness. It always is.   Today’s reading from the Gospel of Matthew spurred me on.  If you know that your br...

Desiring the Sacrament of Reconciliation (Despite Being Scrupulous)

The day that I am writing this article was a huge day for our family — the day that our oldest child received the Sacrament of Reconciliation for the first time. It wasn’t planned that way. She was supposed to have her official First Reconciliation Service in a few days, but as she and I left the house to go and decorate our church for Advent (I’m a member of our parish’s sacristy team, and she’s the littlest sacristan and my biggest helper) I mentioned to her that I was going to go to Confessio...

Rituals of reconciliation help to heal moral injuries for veterans

A long read in Duke University’s Faith & Leadership blog examines ministries of reconciliation offered to veterans by the Episcopal Church. The Revd David Peters is himself a veteran, and an Episcopal priest: From his years as an Army chaplain and his earlier experience as an enlisted Marine, Peters knew when he formed the Episcopal Veterans Fellowship that veterans would do best in a community of fellow veterans. He also knew from his theological training that veterans needed the sacramental st...

PLEASE Ladies…

It’s only a brief mention. But it’s a brief mention in The Bible . Certainly not the mention they hoped for. Euodia and Syntyche. If they were here today, I’m sure that they would at least quietly mention that “all the work we did, and he mentions THIS!” They are considered ministry partners to Paul, who play a significant role in ministry, as do we. If you are reading through Philippians, and you blink or sneeze, you’ll miss the mention of them. It’s that brief. “Now I appeal to Euodia and...

Senate Democrats Tax Reform Principles

On 8/1/17, almost all Senate Democrats plus the two independent senators issued a letter to President Trump, Majority Leader McConnell and Senate Finance Committee Chairman Hatch, on their “key principles for tax reform.” The 45 signers indicate they want to work on bipartisan tax reform. The three key principles they “believe are prerequisites to any bipartisan tax reform effort” are: Do not increase the tax burden on the middle class and should not b...

More Than Simply Surviving Infidelity, Couples Must Aim to Resume a ‘Normal’ Relationship

When couples are trying to recover from an incident of infidelity, the betrayal often becomes the oversized elephant in the room. In fact, in every room. Infidelity typically looms over a relationship. Breakfast is served with a side of infidelity. The garden sprouts infidelity. The shower spews infidelity, and the bedroom… well, the bedroom blasts infidelity like a set of powerful speakers ramped to maximum volume. Just as the original infidelity was an unwelcome intrusion into the relat...

When Infidelity is an Uninvited Guest at Your Thanksgiving Dinner

No time of year is a good time to be coping with infidelity. But when the wounds of a relationship betrayal are still tender and coincide with a traditional family holiday, such as Thanksgiving and Christmas, the sting of infidelity is that much sharper. Infidelity is a private matter. If there is any hope of repairing the damaged relationship, it is best to deal with it discreetly. While partners can take proactive steps to rebuild and move forward, including work with a qualified relationshi...

When Radical Change Is the Only Way

It was meant to be a fun getaway. At least that was my understanding. I was fifteen years old, from a small town, and harboring big hurts in my heart. So I leaped at the offer to visit my father. I was angry at this point in my life. And my mother made a fine target for any and every negative emotion that welled within me. All of my frustration and wounds were hurled at her in a steady barrage of insults, eye rolling, back talk, and phone conversations held intentionally within her earshot where...

How Can I Free Myself from Guilt?

His name was Tom. He was traveling on business and was staying at a motel in Arizona one night when he turned on the television and happened across our live show. He had never phoned in to a “call-in” show before. And for the first minute or so of his call, we thought he had just telephoned to say hi. He talked a little baseball and spoke about a few other odds and ends until finally the cameraman started encouraging me to help him get to the point. Now I’ve been accused of many things, but pati...

Learning to Forgive Through the Saints

For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father also will forgive you; but if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. Matthew 6:14-15 It goes against our sinful human nature to renounce vengeance and to leave our malefactors unpunished, but this is what is expected of us. “‘Vengeance is mine; I will repay,’ says the Lord.” (Rom. 12:19).  This very difficult teaching was obeyed by the saints — although in some cases, not without muc...

50 Cent and The Game Squash Decade-Long Feud While Partying at Ace of Diamonds Strip Club

The Long-Term Effects of Adult Sibling Bullying

You know that sinking feeling all too well. You’re expected to make an appearance at an upcoming family gathering, and you just know your sibling will be there — putting you down, as usual. While some parents see bullying among their children as a normal form of sibling rivalry, few people realize that, in many families, it can continue well into adulthood. So, what is it and why does it occur? Sibling bullying can take many forms, but it is always done with the intention of shaming, belittli...
