DIVINE WISDOM

The Lord’s message, through Moses, was to “take no revenge and cherish no grudge . . . love your neighbor as yourself” (Leviticus 19:18). We might think, “Great in theory, but not always realistic!”

Then Jesus in today’s Gospel goes even further. Take a slap in the face and then turn the other cheek? Treat enemies the same as friends? Again, we’re tempted to think that those are nice ideals, but not very practical in the “real world.”

Paul echoes Jesus when he tells the Corinthians that what passes for human wisdom is absurdity to God. Divine wisdom casts sunshine on the good and the bad, showers rain on the honest and the dishonest—without distinction. We must examine our wisdom and common sense to see how they compare to the wisdom of God, and make adjustments accordingly.

CATHOLICISM:  The Pivotal Players

During Lent this year we will be offering a series called CATHOLICISM: the Pivotal Players.  This is a six-part series that illuminates a handful of saints, artists, mystics, and scholars who not only shaped the life of the church, but changed the course of civilization.

The series is a continuation of Bishop Robert Barron’s epic ten-part documentary about our Church.  It unlocks the truth behind the Church’s most influential people – f rom St. Francis of Assisi to Catherine of Siena, from St. Thomas Aquinas to Michelangelo, all the way to Blessed John Henry Newman and G.K. Chesterton.  Christ’s Incarnation is ...

Baptismal Font

For the past couple of months I’m sure many of us have been thinking and praying about our Baptismal font.   Parishioners have offered varying ideas and opinions, ranging from removal to rehabilitation to leaving it as is.   At this time, nothing appears to be the clear way forward; therefore, I have put the font in the hands of our patron saint and placed his statue inside.   My hope is that the statue will lead us to a prayerful and faith filled decision on what to do with the font.  In the meantime, the font will be decorated with the colors of the seasons as we ask St. John the Baptist to guide us.  Please note that all Baptisms have and will take place in the St. Gianna Chapel.
