  • Prayers of the Saints: St. Dominic

    St. Peter preached a wondrous sermon at Pentecost, helping to establish the Church. Later, St. Stephen, one of the first deacons, preached such a convicting sermon, it cost him his life. Through the power of the Holy Spirit, preaching—the proclamation of the Gospel message—claims a unique capacity to change lives. That capacity was certainly needed at the close of the twelfth century when heresies struck the European

  • Type Casting: We All Have Much in Common

    The Gospels spill over with stories that we enjoy sharing with our children. The birth of Christ is told over and over.

Three days later, his assistant manager brought him one of the discs. “I didn’t expect this. You’re going to be surprised,” she said. “We caught somebody

  • At Dawn, Rejoice and Dance

    The earth responded to the crucifixion of Jesus with consuming darkness, thunder and lightning, and an oppressive sense of foreboding unease. It didn’t last. Each Lenten season, we are reminded of the sacrifice of Christ and the significance of our uniting with him in baptism, purposeful and sober, reflective and selfless. Easter week, we celebrate the sacrificial death of the Savior in somber terms and meditative worship. Then, on Resurrection Sunday, we
