  • The Resurrection is key to living our faith
    Post by Bishop Paul S. Loverde, 4/25/2014

    “If I asked you to choose the single event that has most influenced and touched human history, what would you choose? The invention of the alphabet? The discovery of the New World by Columbus? Maybe you would name a medical advancement that saved millions of lives, or an invention that allowed us to accomplish things previously never imagined. Yes, human history has included many world-changing discoveries, inventions and advancements, but, in point of fact, none of them would be considered the single event that has had the greatest influence on our history — at least, not for the followers of Jesus Christ. ... ”

  • The ?Unnamed? Days of Holy Week
    Post by Sr. Clare Hunter, 4/15/2014

    “Have you ever wondered why the Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of Holy Week don’t get a special name? I have. We have quite the entrance on Passion (Palm) Sunday by publicly processing, singing and carrying palms. We read the very long Gospel and wince as we shout out “Crucify Him! Crucify Him!” After the celebration of an intense liturgy, it feels like we are just getting started, and then we have to stop for three days, only to rev up again for the big line up of Holy Thursday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday and finally Easter Sunday. ... ”

  • Lenten Foods: Japanese Tempura
    Post by Deacon Marques Silva, 3/17/2014

    “"Some have suggested that the word tempura comes from the Latin Quatuor Tempora ("four times"), a name for the Ember Days, penitential days marking the changing of the seasons. The tradition of abstaining from meat on those days each quarter was brought to Japan by Spanish and Portuguese missionaries. When this European Christian tradition met a Japanese culinary tradition, a deep-fried seafood and vegetable dish was born: tempura!"[1] ... ”

  • If By The Spirit...
    Post by Rev. Paul Scalia, 3/14/2014

    “Self-denial is not foreign to the world. It is not original or exclusive to Catholics. Granted, the indulgence of our culture might obscure this fact. Most people do seem to go about seeking to satisfy their appetites, and more. The world’s dominant message is not self-restraint but self-indulgence. Nevertheless, even in the midst of all this we do find some self-denial. ... ”

  • What Can Sisters Do For You?
    Post by Sr. Clare Hunter, 3/13/2014

    “In God’s providence, I am spending National Catholic Sisters Week (March 9-16) in Lowell, Michigan, at the Franciscan Life Process Center. I am with a group of college students and staff from Marymount University on their Spring Break service trip. Hence a trip to snowy Michigan, where the low last night was negative one, to work and pray with 14 Sisters from my Community, the Franciscan Sisters of the Eucharist. ... ”

  • Let?s hear it for the nuns

  • Evangelism Should Be Like Dunkin? Donuts?
    Post by Deacon Marques Silva, 2/24/2014

    “About once to twice a week I go by Dunkin’ Donuts and pick up a cup of coffee before work. I have a few options, but I always choose the one that is in the opposite direction of my office, adding an extra ten minutes to my commute time on purpose. ... ”

  • A Facebook Education
    Post by Sr. Clare Hunter, 12/11/2013

    “I’ll confess, though not a devout Facebook user, I have it, and I learn from it. A scan of the news feed shows me pictures and news of friends (um, real ones) and family, articles on faith, recipes, videos, and world news. My “friends” happen to give me a lot of information about the Arlington Diocese, life issues, sexuality, and Pope Francis. Overall, it has become my go-to place to get a quick view of what is going on. I can see why they don’t have options to click “dislike,” or “pathetic,” or “this is sick.” I suppose I could put that in the comment section, but that would be a lot of work, and un-Sisterly. For the most part, my “friends” are quite tame as far as information goes, but I have run across a fair share of links that pose the question: “how much crazier are things going to get?” There is some whacked stuff out there! In the spirit of generosity, I thought I should share a few. Feel free to reassure me that I am not completely insane. ... ”

  • Pillar and Bulwark
    Post by Rev. Paul Scalia, 11/22/2013

    “As we conclude the Year of Faith this Sunday, we do well to recall Pope Benedict's hope that the year would lead to a greater appreciation of faith's two essential components: the act of faith and the content of faith: ... ”
