Fr. Glenn: The Prescience Of Rodney King

Well … this weekend the government “shut down”—the perennial threat tactic when the two major parties can’t agree (Can’t agree?! Gee, what a surprise). The news thereafter becomes a blame game shouting match … accusations a’flyin’… and weariness for all of us on the receiving end of the news. It seems that whatever one party proposes, the other party feels duty-bound to oppose, lest the first party get the least particle of political benefit.

Throughout history, Christianity has played a central role in the Middle East and North Africa. Distinct sites from both the ancient and modern times demonstrate Christianity’s unique and vast place in the region. Tragically, Christianity’s cultural and contemporary position in the region is persistently under attack.  
 
According to the World Watchlist Report (2017), the

Fr. Glenn: Missing Class

This week’s uproar over the president’s reputed profanity (which he denies) in a private meeting simply highlights what seems to be an increasingly rapid downward spiral in societal propriety, courtesy and … well, just plain ol’ class.

Whether the president did say what is reputed, he would not be the first politician to use such crude language, and—sad to say—will likely not be the last.  Obama, Kennedy, Nixon, Johnson, Cheney, Biden … all have had vulgar comments recorded, and doubtless the list could go on.

Fr. Theophan Mackey: Transcendence Of Mountains

While driving the road off of the mountain, the vista of the Sangre de Christo Mountains opens before you. It is a spectacular view in every season. Right now they are capped with snow that has somehow avoided us here in Los Alamos.

However well we know the sight of them, they are very far off. Even if we look at maps or fly over them on our way in or out, they remain distant. Even our own mountain remains transcendent, unknown.

Pastor Raul: The Light Of The World Part 2

A man named John was sent from God. He came as a witness to testify concerning the light, so that through him everyone would believe in the light. He himself wasn’t the light, but his mission was to testify concerning the light. The true light that shines on all people was coming into the world. (CEB, John 1:6-9).

These words speak a very powerful truth that is somewhat taboo in our culture today. This truth affects us all as it speaks of reality and addresses the figments of our imaginations.

Light is important to us, because it

CALVARY CHAPEL News:

Is neo-Darwinism true? It is according to the National Academy of Sciences and the other professional science societies in our land. Yet the fields of molecular biology and genetics have been demonstrating conclusively for well over 20 years that the framework is untenable.

Fr. Glenn: Looking Ahead To The Past

Entropy: a measure of the amount of disorder within a system; lack of order or predictability; gradual decline into disorder.” Such is an amalgam of some definitions found on the ‘net. More on that later.

Well … I recently caught myself doing … “it”: reminiscing in the past … the “When I was growing up…” syndrome. All that was missing was a few “whipper-snappers” thrown in.
