Free From Fear: Reacting to Global Violence
Last edited 26th November 2015

This weekend, I, like many people on social media, changed my profile picture to include a French flag filter. It’s not much—it doesn’t fix the problem. But it’s a simple way to show solidarity with the French people affected by recent acts of terrorism. It has been inspiring to see friends and strangers across the world show similar solidarity–with France, but also with Beirut, Syria, Baghdad, and all of the other areas across the world currently affected by violence.

Bishop Barron on Vatican II and the Power of the Laity
Last edited 25th November 2015

In this video, Bishop Robert Barron reflects on his time on live television during the Pope's recent trip to America. Bishop Barron talks about some of the issues that were raised on air, and how he responded to these issues - in particular, he talks about the role of laity in the Church. Specifically, the laity have a role to sanctify the Church - and to change the world! This challenge is for each one of us... will you take it up?

What Is the Sign of the Cross?
Last edited 17th November 2015

The Sign of the Cross is a Christian ceremony that represents the Passion of our Lord by tracing the shape of the Cross with a simple motion. It is a ceremony, I say, and here is what is meant by that term. A skillful manager assigns to each of his subordinates his proper task, making all of them useful, not only those who are vigorous and energetic, but also those who are less so. Similarly, the virtue of religion, hav­ing for its proper and natural work to render to God the honor that is His due, draws up each of our virtuous ac­tions into its own work by directing them all to the honor of God.

Hoobert Heever Apologetics
Last edited 17th November 2015

There never has been an apologist who hasn’t bungled. The tradition started early. Peter, visiting Antioch, must have been embarrassed when he realized he undercut his own principles when he removed himself from the table of the Gentiles. Surely he was doubly embarrassed when Paul upbraided him for throwing a stumbling block in front of new Christians (Gal. 2:11–14).

Flying Solo
Last edited 10th November 2015

Are you tired of doing it all on your own? Are you starting to feel a little charred around the edges, afraid of admitting that you’re approaching burnout? Maybe you’re new to the youth ministry game and have been put in charge of “starting something up.”
