Seeing God in Creation

I just finished reading the book Radical Amazementby Judy Cannato.  She talks about the origin of the universe in terms of the “Big Bang Theory” and “Evolution.”  She seeks to develop a Christian Spirituality from the science of what God has created.  Here, I wish to offer a few highlights to ponder.

A Brief Word From Away

I haven’t written in a few days so I thought maybe I should write something.  I am taking a few days off and enjoying the spring weather.  I’ve been doing a little reading, spending some time with friends, and spending time “working” in the yard.  I put “working” in quotations because, while it is work, […]

Holy Thursday

The readings for the Mass of the Lord’s Supper celebrated in the evening on Holy Thursday are very appropriate to the occasion. The first reading (Exodus 12:1-8, 11-14) recalls the original Passover event when God lead the Israelites out of Egypt by the hand of Moses.  It was the Passover meal that Jesus celebrated at the Last Supper.  This […]
