A Saving Faith
Jesus had thrown a curve ball, and now it crosses the plate. He says abruptly, “And what about you? Who do you say I am?”
Being Present to God and Life
Too often we are not present to the beauty, love, and grace that brims within the ordinary moments of our lives. Bounty is there, but we aren’t.
The Rock on which the Church is built
The apostle [Peter] who was supposed to be the rock of the Church, betrayed the Lord he loved in his Lord’s worst need. A betrayal like that seems to have something hellish about it, doesn’t it?
Authority within the context of the People of God is a special kind of authority. The reading from Isaiah is about removal from office for abuse of authority and replacement by someone who shall be a father.
The Great Work
Can you see your whole life as a way to worship God? Does your fear ever give way to love?
a need we feel
but can’t define
like air we breathe
