God Speaks Only One Word in the Whole Bible

And when the long-anticipated Christ event finally arrives, it often catches us completely by surprise: it comes with a theological significance and finality no scriptural readers could have expected.

Pope Francis: Where we are very busy, thinking everything “depends on us”, but we risk overlooking Jesus

Addressing the faithful in Saint Peter's Square for the Sunday Angelus, Pope Francis says we need an "ecology of the heart" developed through "rest, contemplation and compassion". And the summer is a good time to do this.

Having Compassion on Yourself and Others

When I was 25, volunteering at St. Joseph’s Medical Centre in New York, I always finished my days exhausted. When driving back to the seminary with Guillermo, he was always energized by his visits, while I reclined my car seat and passed out. His patients could speak, whereas I was assigned to patients who could not! I was depleted by trying to communicate the whole day with people who could barely respond.

Living From an Overflowing Tank

Robert Morris once thought of his life’s mission as refuelling others: his wife, children, his church, and everyone who came to him. God told him in this metaphor, “Your job involves going… to fill up their tanks with the fuel from your truck.” But he was serving so often that it crept into his sabbath day of rest. It started with checking emails, then having meals to support people, and then scheduling work meetings.

Boasting of Our Weaknesses

We’ve just started our annual Sabbath Summer season at St. Anthony’s, and here are my six recommendations for a restful, renewing, and re-creative summer: 1) Read good literature, because good books are the simplest way to renew the whole person, body, mind, and soul; 2) Go on vacation, because you’re so tired; 3) Waste time with friends, in the sense of enjoy their company and don’t try to accomplish anything; 4) Go on retreat,

Spending Money on Mission

As mentioned two weeks ago, today we’re going to re-examine our financial generosity, because that’s the focus of today’s Second Reading. However, I had a significant change of heart two weeks ago when my third action item was to ask you to think about increasing your sacrificial generosity.

Seeing Life as a Mission

Given that we’re celebrating the solemnity of our patron, St. Anthony, today’s homily is about celebration and mission. The Readings are about Jesus’ mission, and they’ve touched me deeply. The First Reading says, “The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me… he has sent me to bring good news to the oppressed, to bind up the brokenhearted” (Is 61:1). This verse refers to Jesus, but we share in His mission (Cf. CCC 1287).

It Matters That God is Called ‘Father’

Why is God called ‘Father’? Can He be called ‘Mother’? In the Second Reading, we see an example of the unanimous tradition of calling God, ‘Father’: “All who are led by the Spirit of God are sons and daughters of God… When we cry, ‘Abba! Father!’ it is that very Spirit bearing witness with our spirit that we are children of God” (Rom 8:14,16).
