Who are you...to God? Who does He say you are? That is THE question. At stake is our identity. Is anything more important?? It's the question answered for Jesus as he began his public ministry and was baptized. The Father publicly endorsed him: "This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased." God says the same thing thing to us. Have we heard i…

This is the Pelagian influence - among the 'junk' t…

Wherever needed reform begins pushing back against entrenched mediocrity, leaders face the question: "By what authority?" Chapter Two of 'Divine Renovation' shows that the movement of parishes from maintenance to mission is NOT the personal agenda or ideological preference of one person or a group; it's a gospel and magisterial mandate. Fr Mallon p…
 
The identity crisis facing the church has left us confused and weak. The church is a movement, meant to go forth and bring the good news of salvation in Jesus Christ to all peoples. But instead, the church is often a tribe - closed in on itself, self-referential, even to the point of becoming "sick," according to Pope Francis. Are we fostering chur…
