Genisis 2:18 tells us, "It is not good for man to be alone."  The theology of the body builds on this idea to assert the donative meaning of our body and science has ample examples of why people are social by nature.  Add this one to the list.According to new research, if you're struggling with self control, the best way to achieve it is to surround yourself with strong-willed friends.We all desire self-control -- the resolve to skip happy hour and go to the gym instead, to finish a r … [Read more...]

Savior of the Week

supercape

Pope Francis offers a helpful reality check to the self-help culture.We need to “go out”, then, in order to experience our own anointing, its power and its redemptive efficacy: to the “outskirts” where there is suffering, bloodshed, blindness that longs for sight, and prisoners in thrall to many evil masters. It is not in soul-searching or constant introspection that we encounter the Lord: self-help courses can be useful in life, but to live by going from one course to another, from one metho … [Read more...]

Recovering from addictions is a painful process.  It isn't unusual for a serious addict to have to go through a treatment program 3 or more times before they can maintain sobriety.  One of the biggest challenges of recovery is changing your life and your social network after you get out of treatment.  If the addict keeps the same friends or stays in the same environment post recovery as he or she did before seeking help, there are just too many temptations.Comunita Cenacolo (Community of the … [Read more...]

imagesCASDEKT3

In his homily for his installation, Pope Francis reflected on the "vocation of protector"  so ably modelled by St. Joseph, who's feast we celebrate today.  In his comments, Pope Francis made some surprising and important comments on the importance of developing emotional control and how our ability to be good stewards of our emotions directly affects our ability to be the protectors of one another God calls us to be.But to be "protectors", we also have to keep watch over ourselves!
