Simple Charity

Last edited 20th March 2012

Charity really isn’t all that hard. I mean, it is hard to get over ourselves, over our discomfort, over our feelings of inconvenience, over our feelings of not having enough time or money. But it is very clear when we need to charitable. We are faced daily with so many needs. What is easy about it is that it just requires a response. A simple response.

Fasting from Injustice

Last edited 20th March 2012

I have a confession to make. I am horrible at fasting. Epically horrible. My Lenten fast usually devolves into me eating precisely that from which I have vowed to abstain in a shameful and ridiculous display of my apparent lack of self-mastery. And then (good Catholic that I am) I feel guilty. Epically guilty.

A Reflection on St. Joseph, by Fr. Thomas Rosica

Last edited 2nd October 2015

Joseph reveals to us the task given to fathers to proclaim God's kingdom by word and deed. His unique role as "foster father to Jesus" draws attention to the truth about fatherhood, which is more than a mere fact of biological generation. A man is a father most when he invests himself in the spiritual and moral formation of his children. Joseph was keenly aware, as every father should be, that he served as the representative of God the Father.
