  • What is the kingdom of God?
    Jesus, in a rich parable (Mark 4:26-34), presents to us this Sunday a beautiful image that, no doubt, would have been familiar to the agrarian culture of the ¬≠Israel of the Lord’s day. Jesus expresses the central message that He is in Himself and that He came to bring: the kingdom of God.
  • Children of Adam and Eve
    In the first reading (Gen 3:9-15), we learn of the story of our first parents, Adam and Eve, and their fall from their state of original innocence. As the Catechism of the Catholic Church reminds us, the Church’s doctrine of original sin is “the reverse side” of the Good News.
  • Eucharist, not just a symbol
    There is a famous story about a meeting between two famous Southern writers of the 20th century — Flannery O’Connor and Mary McCarthy — at a party. Flannery O’Connor, a great Catholic short story writer, recounts her encounter in "The Habit of Being."
  • God is a multi-tasker
    The Most Holy Trinity is a mystery and, like all things that are mysterious, there is only so much we can say about it. What we can say is that God is a multi-tasker.
  • Many parts, but one body
    Pentecost is the 50th day and final day of the Easter season. Pentecost celebrates the coming forth of the Holy Spirit upon the Apostles and disciples following Jesus’ ascension to the right hand of the Father in heaven.
