Saints are made, not born. They come from different faiths, homelands, and backgrounds to change the world for the better. We know these figures for the miracles they performed, the sacrifices they made, or the joy that they brought. But the transformations that turn ordinary people into saints are less well known. From Sin to Saint, the latest podcast from Pathos aims to change that. This series will explore the events and circumstances that transformed saints of all faiths from merely swimming in their cultural current to reshaping it for the better. Read more

By Dr. Sam Rader (Spoiler Alert) Several weeks ago, I wrote a post on Instagram: “I want to create a new martial art. When one opponent can coax the other to stop fighting, through gestures of love and affection, both parties win.” The new existential sci-fi movie Everything Everywhere All at Once directed by the Daniels (Dan Kwan and Daniel Scheinert) is the film I’ve been waiting and praying for a very long time.

Years ago, as a young Greek Orthodox kid, I remember my parish Priest standing up and saying to our congregation, “We’re Christians. We should read the Bible.” And then he added, almost as an afterthought, “Start with the New Testament. The Old Testament is hard!” If you’ve read the Bible, I’m sure you can relate! Whether you’re a Christian seeking to better understand your religion’s theology and sacred narratives, or a practitioner of another faith tradition just trying to be... Read more

It might seem peculiar to think of death as something you can do well. But, in the end, there are few things we would want for ourselves and our loved ones more than a “good death.” Thinking about death as a journey, and not just a specific moment in time can help us to understand what it means to die well. But, as with any journey, one needs to prepare for it. “When We Die,” a new three-part video series... Read more

By Zach Miller We know from the Bible that when pushed to his mental limit, Jesus was not above throwing tables over and chasing merchants with whips. But what was Christ’s position on chopping down parking meters? Released in 1967, Cool Hand Luke depicts prison camp ward, Luke Jackson, whose unconquerable spirit represents an intolerable aberration under the regime of the tyrannical camp staff. The film was an icon of late 1960’s cinema, and arguably the most iconic role for... Read more
