Ten Catholic Things That Caught My Eye Today (Jan. 30, 2015) January 30, 2015

1. Pope Francis: Lukewarm Christians are in grave danger.

Or as St. John Fisher puts it in the Liturgy of the Hours today:

he did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, an offering and a sacrifice to God in a fragrant odor, that he might redeem us from all our iniquity and cleanse for himself an acceptable people.

… And yet we are the most ungrateful of men. Indeed, we have gone beyond the bounds of ingratitude: we give no thought to his love, nor do we recognize the extent of his kindnesses to us. Rather we reject the one who lavishes so many favors and even appear to despise him; and the remarkable mercy that he has continually shown to sinners does not move us to form our lives and conduct according to his most holy command.


3. “Please don’t forget” Nigerians.

4. Fr. Barron: Why Having a Heart of Gold is Not What Christianity is About.

5. Who’s entering religious life these days? (With testimony from my young Dominican friend Brother Humberto.)

6. You think you’re cold? An ice church in Romania.

7. Married with six children and on the same page as the pope.

8. On John Bosco (his feast day is Saturday) and Pope Francis.

9. A Denver bulletin insert on assisted suicide.
