Reasons to Believe the Resurrection Actually Happened

…are under discussion over at Catholic Weekly. First things first: the gospels were not written long after the events. They and almost all the New Testament documents are written within the lifetime of the apostles or within living memory of them. They have all the earmarks of eyewitness testimony from people who are writing memoirs, [Read More…]

Holy Saturday

Good Friday

In this story of Good Friday it is the best things in the world that are at their worst. That is what really shows us the world at its worst. It was, for instance, the priests of a true monotheism and the soldiers of an international civilization. Rome, the legend, founded upon fallen Troy and [Read More…]

Bishop Barron on the stubbornly historical nature…

…of the Christian faith: Christianity is not fideist, that is to say, reliant upon a pure and uncritical act of faith on the part of its adherents. Rather, it happily embraces reason and welcomes critical questions. Secondly, and relatedly, Christianity is a stubbornly historical religion. It is not a philosophy (though it can employ philosophical [Read More…]

Just a reminder to those who think violence substitute for obeying Jesus

Increasingly, I think fear and a kind of sloth are at the bottom of our lazy militarism. “Look!  I lobbed some bombs!  What more can I possibly do?” Well, you could open your hearts to refugees and let them come here. “Absolutely not!  Filthy terrorist kids!  Sean Spicer says five year old Iranian kids want [Read More…]
