This Is Christianity

I love these words from Archbishop DiNoia’s Easter Vigil homily last week: “We see that no one has ever desired anything more than God desires to share the communion of His trinitarian love for us.” What more do we need to know? Obviously, there is much more, catechetically, much more of the depth of that [Read More...]

This Is the Priesthood

I wrote over on my mothership, National Review Online, today about the ridiculous but important controversy — a warning bell — at George Washington University over a chaplain at the Catholic Newman Center there who is, as it turns out, Catholic!

Is Today Just Another Day? Or Is It a Day of the Living Passion?

Holy Saturday. Would that every Saturday be! Every day. Today, these last few days, these coming Easter days are a chance to set things right, simply by orientating ourselves to God. Simply.

Need a Good Friday Gateway Drug?

The Order of Preachers — the Dominicans — help here. If you are looking for a way into the Passion today, this video beautifully illustrates the prayer of this day: Canticum de Passione Domini from Province of Saint Joseph on Vimeo.
