The Shack

 

People continue to ask if there will be another opportunity to discuss The Shack.  So one more time—especially since Pope Francis continues to emphasize God’s Mercy.  It will be open to both new and returning discussants.

Beauty

 

Beauty:  this is a mystery in our life.  We will reflect and pray about its significance, unique to each of us.  Each day of prayer will enrich the successive one.

Ash Wednesday

 

In his important work, The Joy of the Gospel, Pope Francis asks every Christian to “daily renew their personal encounter with Jesus Christ.”  As we begin Lent we will look at how we can do this and what effect it can have on our lives.

I Contemplate God As God Is Contemplating Me

 

An “Oasis” Day, offering us the opportunity to spend time resting and being nourished by God, while giving our bodies and our minds a well-deserved break from the busy routine of everyday life.  Let us acknowledge the need to dedicate some special time contemplating God in the same way He contemplates us, so that we may deepen our relationship with God.

Towards Renewing Our Baptismal Promises

 

If you and I were baptized as infants, then maybe we don’t have the appreciation of what our baptisms mean like those who choose to be baptized as adults.  We will use the three “Scrutiny” gospels from John to teach us the profound meaning of baptism:  being freed from spiritual thirst, blindness, and death.

Một Ngày Cho Mẹ

 

Người Việt Nam vốn có một lòng kính mến Đức Mẹ một cách đặc biệt. Bằng chứng là bất cứ khi nào chúng ta cầu nguyện đều không bỏ qua Kinh Kính Mừng. Lòng sùng kính này cũng là một trong những truyền thống lâu đời của Giáo Hội nữa. Hôm nay đang trong Thánh Hoa, tôi có thể dành ra một ngày để học hỏi về lòng sùng kính Đức Mẹ trong Giáo Hội như thế nào và trong truyền thống Linh Đạo Thánh I-nha-xi-ô ra sao?
