"The attack started from a village controlled by jihadists, Father Paul Thabit Mekko, a Chaldean priest, told Fides, but was rejected by the Kurdish Peshmerga troops. In the night, panic...

    St. Paul reminds us in his Pastoral Epistle to live out our faith so that it “may be evident to everyone.” [1 Timothy 4:14-16]How is that working for you?For example, while waiting for Mass to begin, do you analyze the people around you? Critique their choice of clothing? Hairstyle? Makeup? How they worship? Or are you focused on your purpose?Perhaps when you look at anyone at church, you pause and remember that they always have a more interesting story to tell than the one you conjure in your mind. We all need prayers, not persecution, especially in church, as one...

    Healing the Family Tree is a groundbreaking book by the British psychiatrist Kenneth McCall. I met Dr McCall when I lived in England, and used his book in my own developing healing ministry as an Anglican priest. Dr McCall was brought up in China as the son of Christian missionaries. While there he experienced exorcisms and the influence of generational curses on families. As he matured he studied to practice medicine and specialized in psychiatry. He discovered that some incurable psychiatric patients had, as part of their problem, unresolved deaths within their family circle. He experimented with a new therapy...

    Growing up in New Albany, Ind., during the 1950s, I never heard the term domestic church, but I knew what it meant. I knew it because my parents and my friends parents made their homes domestic churches, even before that phrase from our Catholic tradition was retrieved during the Second Vatican Council. I guess you could say that my childhood friends and neighbors were at home in church and in church at home. But what did it mean in practical terms that we experienced the family as a domestic church? For one thing, it meant that nearly every Catholic family...

When you come in to visit me,who asks these things of you?Trample my courts no more!Bring no more worthless offerings;your incense is loathsome to me.New moon and sabbath, calling of assemblies,octaves with wickedness: these I cannot bear.Your new moons and festivals...

    There is a powerful principle in The Bible that we need to get a hold of. The principle of putting God's word in your mouth. From the beginning of time God breathed into man's nostrils the breath of life. Now, that breathe was not God blowing into man's nostrils. When he breathed into man's nostrils he spoke. Notice, Psalm 33:6 says, "By the word of Lord were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth." So, the breath of God and the word of God are the same. And it was that breath...
