The faith of my non believing friend

I read a book quite some time ago called The Faith of the Unbeliever by Martin Robinson and that phrase has always stuck with me. I found interesting this notion of people who claim to not believe in God, yet despite this a kind of latent faith, a longing still...

There’s something about Mary

  To tell you the truth I've never really been that interested in Mary...but you have to admit there is something about her, the mother of Jesus that is, that quietly and persistently challenges you to take another look at this woman. So as a result, lately I've...

Thank God that someone swore at church the other day

Thank God that someone swore at church the other day. Let me explain. We often have a gathering on Sunday mornings where we just encourage anyone and everyone to boldly and publicly share what God has been up to in their lives over the last couple of months. As you...

When we're surrounded by so much injustice, it can be easy to become numb or indifferent to the pain around us. But God calls us to "hunger and thirst for righteousness" by living it out in our love and kindness shown to our neighbour.

In today's Lent video, Karina Kreminski reflects on how those who long for righteousness, peace and justice find fullness in the Kingdom of God, as they participate with God's in making right the injustice in our world.

We expect too much of humans, imagining them as limitless, unbreakable, Promethean champions; not taking into account the sinfulness and blindness of the human heart/mind. We expect too little of humans, reducing them to mere consumers, demographics, and drivers license numbers.

When despair for the world grows in me
and I wake in the night at the least sound,
in fear of what my life and my children's lives may be.
I go and lie down where the wood drake rests
in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.
I come into the peace of the wild things

The canonization of Oscar Romero is an immense step forward for the church, and a great wrong finally righted. Archbishop Romero, gunned down at the altar while saying Mass, after his prophetic defense of God's poor in El Salvador, was clearly, and always, a martyr and a saint.

Calling it “social” media is the original lie. It suggests this medium is a portal to intimacy. So you imagine you “know” people you “see” constantly online.

But if you’ve never met them, you don’t *know* them.

This is just publicity by other means.
