Do You Hear What I Hear?

“How beautiful…are the feet of Him Who brings glad tidings.” —Isaiah 52:7

Freedom in Forgiveness

Mysterious Freedom Gained by Forgiveness

Forgiveness is a mysteriously freeing action both on the giving and receiving end. I think about my own capacity to forgive and to receive forgiveness. It’s a challenge at times!

How often do we rewrite the parable of the Prodigal Son to fit it into our narrow perception of God and His mercy? Maybe it’s hard for us to accept that God really means what He says when we listen to the words of Jesus, “I tell you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents” (Luke 15:10).

Immaculate Conception Explained

immaculation-conception

Father Mike Schmitz of Ascension Presents offers an explanation on the often misunderstood celebration of “The Immaculate Conception”. Many mistakenly confuse this annual celebration on Dec. 8 with Mary conceiving Jesus, but rather is about Mary’s conception in her mother St. Anne’s womb. Mary, full of grace, conceived without original sin. With God nothing is impossible. Take a moment to have this theological reality clarified in a hip and holy way.
