Man City ‘closing in on’ completing Saul Niguez transfer

One of the biggest summer transfers? Manchester City are ‘closing in on’ a deal to buy Atletico Madrid star Saul Niguez after supposedly overtaking Barcelona in the race to sign him. Saul has grown into one of the best midfielders in La Liga over the past few years. As well as the fact that Saul has a knack for scoring incredible goals, the Spaniard is very versatile. That has lead to interest predominantly from Barcelona. It was also suggested all the way back in December that Man City were co...

Is The AR-15 A ‘Weapon Of War?”

Joe Scarorough: As a longtime gun owner and supporter of the Second Amendment, I agreed with the Supreme Court’s “Heller” holding that concluded Americans had the right to keep and bear arms. But that constitutional protection did not, and will not, extend to guns designed as weapons of war. One should expect such things from a mindless dolt like Scarborough, but we should be able to expect better from people who should know better.  Apparently, it has become all the rage to throw around a few g...

Notes on the Culture: From Claude Monet to Banksy, Why Do Artists Destroy Their Own Work?

Whether as a disavowal of one’s early output or because of simple frustration, some creative souls have relegated important pieces to history’s dustbin.

4 major religions with anarchist roots

Anarchists aren't typically portrayed as particularly religious; instead, we think of them as violent anti-authoritarians.While many modern anarchists rankle at today's religious organizations, the elements of these faiths often express a lot of ideas that anarchists express as well.Here are 4 major religions and how they connect back to anarchy. None Generally, we don't think of anarchists as religious. Anarchists, after all, are anti-authoritarian. What could be more authoritarian than gods an...

Turn the Other Cheek?

“Love your enemies and turn the other cheek.”  “Judge not, lest you be judged” (Lk 6: 27-38). It sounds admirable to some, but preposterous to others.  The 19th century philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche thought such doctrine would breed a society of weaklings.  Karl Marx thought these words would help keep the oppressed under the thumbs of the capitalists. Does Jesus want us to be doormats, suckers who allow ourselves to be taken advantage of by every bully, dictator and gangster that comes down t...

Saul’s Name Didn’t Change at Damascus, His Eschatology Did

Despite popular belief, Saul did not become Paul on the road to Damascus. Those are simply two versions of the same name: Saul the Hebrew version, Paul the Roman. However, what did change when Christ appeared to Paul—and it’s perhaps the most overlooked part of the story—was Paul’s eschatology. In Paul’s encounter with Christ, he saw the end breaking into the present. In fact, Matthew Aernie and Donald Hartley, authors of The Righteous & Merciful Judge, suggest that for Paul, his vision was ...

‘To Dust’ Director Shawn Snyder on Odd Couple Matthew Broderick and Géza Röhrig Digging Corpses [Interview]

Science and spirituality intermingle in one man’s off-kilter quest for absolution. In this dark comedy To Dust, a Hasidic cantor by the name of Shmuel (Géza Röhrig) pursues scientific answers to his spiritual question. In Shmuel’s Jewish spirituality, the soul finds peace when it decays into dust. If the body isn’t dust yet, then the soul is still around. In his heart and nightmares, Shmuel senses his wife’s soul will suffer for a long time if her body doesn’t decompose soon enough. Thus, Shmue...

Here I Raise My Ebenezer: The Inspiration for ‘Come Thou Fount’

Samuel took a stone and set it up . . . and called its name Ebenezer; for he said, “Till now the Lord has helped us.” (1 Samuel 7:12) The Hebrew word Ebenezer may be the least known lyric among all our most beloved English hymns. Baptist minister Robert Robinson (1735–1790) wrote “Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing” at age 22, not long after his conversion, which was influenced in part by the preaching of evangelist George Whitefield. The meaning of Ebenezer originates more ...

De La Hoya in 'no doubt whatsoever' over Canelo-GGG trilogy

Oscar De La Hoya has confirmed a third fight between Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin will happen – and predicts the judges will not be needed to settle the outcome next time. Canelo picked up the WBA and WBC middleweight titles when ending Golovkin's unbeaten record last September, winning their rematch by majority decision after the first meeting had finished as a split-decision draw. After a brief move up to super-middleweight, where he stopped Rocky Fielding to claim...

The first reading from the Acts of the Apostles recounts St. Paul’s conversion. Probably many of us may not be able to relate to the character of St.. Paul as some of us might say, “Sinner, yes; but persecutor? No!” Or it may be due to the fact that many of us did not experience conversion in the manner by which St. Paul did, which was both sudden and spectacular. Lastly, some of us may even contend that St. Paul was special — he was chosen and called — and we were not. But are we really that di...

The Conversion of St. Paul Gives Hope to All of Us

According to Romans 8:28, “We know that all things work for good for those who love God, who are called according to his purpose.” It is no coincidence that the Feast of the Conversion of St. Paul, traditionally occurs a week after the Feast of the Chair of St. Peter. Throughout Church history the reformed murderer and the simple fisherman frequently are portrayed in art and sacred liturgy together as exemplars for Christians to follow. In fact, Peter and Paul share a feast day together on June ...

Fully Embracing Christ’s Mission for Us

The path to conversion for each one of us is a process. Most of us do not have experiences where we are struck blind, like Saul, and come out of it with the zeal of St. Paul. We are often not like the Apostles who leave their nets and follow Christ immediately. We tend to dither and procrastinate quite a bit. Although, even though the Apostles followed Christ when He called them, they too underwent conversion as they learned what discipleship was going to cost them. They even ran and abandoned C...

In the first reading we hear of the martyrdom of the deacon St. Stephen, the Church’s first martyr. Like the Lord Jesus, Stephen died outside the city, stoned to death for what his tormentors considered blasphemy. Like Christ, at his death, he commends his spirit to God and forgives his tormentors, “Lord, do not hold this sin against them.” Saul, the future St. Paul and Apostle to the Gentiles, was a witness to Stephen’s martyrdom. In the Gospel reading Jesus warns his followers that they would ...

He Will Build a House for My Name

This post is the seventh and last in a series adapted from Anticipating His Arrival, a family Advent devotional by Rick Brannan.  2 Samuel 7:1–16 It happened that the king settled in his house. (Now Yahweh had given rest to him from all his enemies all around.) And the king said to Nathan the prophet, “Look, please, I am living in a house of cedar, but the ark of God is staying in the middle of the tent.” Nathan said to the king, “Go and do all that is in your heart, for Yahweh is with you.”...

Intimacy with God Is the Main Thing: Letter to My 30-Year-Old Self

I wish I’d known sooner that intimacy with God is more important than my sense of “calling” from God. That when he calls us to wait, he is drawing us closer to himself. My younger self would’ve embraced my season of waiting, rather than let it frustrate her, if she had made intimacy with God the main thing. I remember that young woman well. Thirty and pregnant with my first child — my husband and I were thrilled — I also was pregnant with anticipation. As I received the high calling of moth...
