Are We Alive in Faith?

What Are You Doing with that Wine?

Friday’s gospel is about new wine and old wineskins. Fr. James Bradley (whose Twitter feed — @FrJamesBradley — is a source of social-media spiritual nourishment) reflects: fervent and yet silent interior renewal, that makes us ready to receive the graces of this endeavour and to act on them, as we seek to bring the gospel [Read More...]

Just Another NYC Commute

Via a Dominican friar and Blackfriars Music: Now that’s how you evangelize through media!

St. Augustine on the Rules of Christian Engagement

As anyone who reads this blog regularly knows, I am quite grateful for the monthly devotional Magnificat (some of whose creators have become friends -– though my addiction preceded the friendship).
