When Mass Feels like Going Through the Motions

Last edited 19th September 2018

The Karate Kid didn’t know waxing a car would teach him karate, but Miyagi knew. In a similar way the Church, in her wisdom, teaches us certain motions—kneeling at Mass, making the sign of the Cross, etcetera—so we may learn the deeper virtues that will lead us to holiness.

Dreaming Like God

Last edited 13th August 2018

One of my favorite things about telenovelas (Spanish-language soap operas) is that through all kinds of turmoils, drama, and plot twists one thing is always consistent: each character has a purpose and is the hero of his or her own story. This is easily seen for the protagonist because the story is told from their point of view; but each side character is also the hero of their own story, even if their story doesn’t get as much screen time.
