    The Stations of the Cross can feel so far removed from our 21st century world. This Good Friday, I invite you to experience Christ’s passion through new eyes, the eyes of our homeless brothers and sisters living in our own neighborhoods.

    After all of the talk from Pope Francis and Catholic bloggers about marriage and the family in recent month, I decided it was time to try it out for myself.

    The Supreme Court’s decision has changed some things, but it hasn’t changed our responsibility to love people with same-sex attraction or their children, and it has given us an even greater opportunity to shape cultural perceptions of marriage by living a better alternative.

    Most of us are sick of hearing news about two reality stars who we love to either praise or hate. But what we’re almost all forgetting is that, as different as they are, they are both fallen human beings who need love, forgiveness, and prayer more than anything else.

    A country that was founded on the free practice of religion should legally protect the rights of its citizens to practice their religions in all arenas where faith may come into play. But when practicing our religion in the public sphere and faced with difficult decisions we have to always ask ourselves, by taking this action, am I loving God and loving my neighbor?

  6. A Rabbi Walks into the Vatican and Shares Some Poetic Theology of Love

    I’ve been hearing a lot of great things being said about the presentation given at the Humanum Conference by Rabbi Jonathan Sacks, the former Chief Rabbi of the UK and the Commonwealth, so I decided to start by watching his speech. I was very impressed by what he added to the conversation. One of the things I admire most about the Jewish faith is how poetic a lot of their theology is. Rather than speak about all the problems that the modern definition of marriage has (high divorce rates, abortion and contraception, ignoring gender, etc.), he discusses why marriage as it has been understood throughout history is so beautiful and necessary.

  7. Show Mercy Even If They Don’t Deserve It

    Whenever we have a hard time showing mercy to someone else because we don’t think they deserve it, it’s important for us to think about how much we don’t deserve the mercy that is extended to us from Christ. Whenever someone does something that really bothers me, I’ve been making an effort to think about if I’d want Christ to forgive me of the same thing. The answer, so far at least, has always been “yes”, even when they haven’t done anything to deserve my continued love and forgiveness.
