Church Leadership

As you know, about a month ago, bishops from all over the world held a meeting (a “synod”) in Rome, primarily for open discussion. Pope Francis wanted the participants to speak up, openly , about how best to address various challenges to family life. Before the meeting, the Pope said that he wanted free and frank discussion, from everybody. Well, that’s what he got. At the end of the meeting, a report was issued, summarizing the discussion. That report, in its entirety, is to be circulated among Catholics throughout the world, so that as many people as possible can contribute their...

Give more

You are thinking, “Last week he said to spend less, and now he is saying to give more? What?” The most powerful, memorable gift you can give to someone else, is yourself.

Prepare

Prepare the way of the Lord, make his paths straight,” and open yourself “entirely to Christ’s action” is still the message of Advent. Will you simply acknowledge the presence of the call and pass on, busily pursuing other things? Or will you stop and turn, opening wide your heart to Jesus, welcoming his appearances in your life? Jesus has appeared in the flesh. This is what we celebrate as the First Advent of Christ called Christmas. And Jesus is going to appear a second time to complete his reign as Lord and ruler of all. This future appearing is commonly referred to as Jesus’ Second...
