Ahead of what promises to be one of the most contentious election seasons in modern U.S. history, a panel of religious leaders at Georgetown University advised Oct. 2 that Christians should look to the Gospel, not just for guidance on how to vote but also how to respond toward others in a national political environment pushing division, not unity.

Christians loving one another proves Christianity

| Father Byron Hagan | May 14, 2019 | 0 Comments

We are familiar with the summary of the Commandments that Jesus gives when under the interrogation: “What is the greatest commandment?” He says that “the whole law and the prophets” are summed up in the commandment to love God with our whole heart, soul and mind, and then to follow upon this love with loving our neighbors as ourselves — a tall order indeed. In fact, it’s impossible without divine grace.

In the face of sin, there seem to be two opposite reactions. First, we might react with anger and condemnation. We might have a tendency to become outraged. This certainly could be appropriate.

The Eucharist, Christmas and the manger

The Eucharist, Christmas and the manger

| Father Michael Van Sloun | December 19, 2018 | 0 Comments

St. Luke places an extremely high value on the Eucharist, and it is a major point of emphasis woven into the fabric of his Gospel from beginning to end.

The manger is mentioned twice more in verses 12 and 16.
