The Word Embodied

Kavanaugh, S. J.

Not Conforming to the Age

The lure of holiness, as Jeremiah found out to his discomfort, provides no warm blanket. Love's love is no crutch, as some critics of religion have imagined.


Historical Cultural Context

John J. Pilch

True Honor

In his own lifetime, Jesus was able to read the handwriting on the wall. He had made an ever-growing number of powerful enemies


Thoughts from the
Early Church


The road seems rough, you draw back, you do not want to follow Christ. Follow him just the same. The road we made for ourselves is rough, but Christ has leveled it by passing over it himself.


Scripture In Depth

Reginald H. Fuller

Transformation takes place through hearing the Word of God and through offering oneself to God in union with Christ’s suffering. This takes place quite concretely in the liturgy.
