Explaining Eucharist to child; defending Mary Magdalene

Q. At Mass recently, after listening intently to the words of consecration, our 4-year-old granddaughter whispered to my wife, “Is wine really blood?” How would you answer her question? Also, would your answer be different for a 7-year-old, a teenager or an adult taking RCIA classes?

It’s like a scene from a futuristic movie.

In a grade-school classroom, students work at “pods,” odd-shaped work stations that take on the look of islands, each with three peninsulas. Each peninsula hosts a large, glistening computer monitor, and pods share some of the newest technology available.

In Year of Mercy, pray and fast to end violence

In Year of Mercy, pray and fast to end violence

| Bishop Andrew Cozzens | November 19, 2015

All of us have once again found ourselves in stunned shock and grief at the terrible terrorist attacks that happened Nov. 13 in Paris. We have been scandalized now for months by ISIS’ senseless acts of violence, which has most often been directed against our Christian brothers and sisters in the Middle East. So many have been driven from their homes, and some of them brutally murdered because they refused to give up their faith. What are we to do in the face of such incredible evil?

Durante el Año de Misericordia, orar y ayunar para que termine la violencia

| Bishop Andrew Cozzens | November 19, 2015

A petición de Nuestro Santo Padre Francisco la Iglesia universal está a punto de embarcarse en un año de Misericordia. Como cada año jubilar será una gran oportunidad de gracia para nosotros entrar en una experiencia más profunda del amor de Dios. Como ha dicho el Papa Francisco, “ Es mi deseo, en efecto, que el Jubileo sea experiencia viva de la cercanía del Padre, como si se quisiese tocar con la mano su ternura, para que se fortalezca la fe de cada creyente y, así, el testimonio sea cada vez más eficaz.”

Daniel and the great unveiling

Daniel and the great unveiling

| Bishop Robert Barron | November 18, 2015 | 0 Comments

Toward the end of the liturgical year, we Catholics hear at Mass from the mysterious, often confounding and utterly fascinating book of Daniel. Recent scholarship has demonstrated that the book of Daniel had an extraordinarily powerful influence on the first Christians, providing them a most important template for understanding the significance of Jesus. Daniel is, of course, an example of apocalyptic literature, which in the common understanding means that it has to do with the end of the world.
