John Foley, SJ
Gone for Good?
What is the Spirit? Is it simply a dose of “grace” that we earn or receive in order to be holy?
Measuring Ourselves in Love
The real test of whether or not we are followers of Jesus is the capacity or non-capacity to forgive an enemy.
Ask in My Name
What is it to ask for something in Christ’s name? It can’t be a matter of simply tacking the name of Christ on to any prayer. “I would like a Porsche, please, in the name of Christ.”
In Sunday’s Readings we hear how Paul and Barnabas went into the synagogue and while there began proclaiming the Word.
The generosity of the Spirit surprised the circumcised believers accompanying Peter. They had grown up believing that God favors some people over others.
How was “the love of God revealed to us?” If Jesus had not come into the world, what would you know about God?
you have a Father
who cares for you
who understands you
he knows all about you
