Benedict XVI, in the Exhortation Sacramentum Caritatis writes:
"This relationship between creed and worship is evidenced in a particular way by the the rich theological and liturgical category of beauty. Like the rest of Christian Revelation, the liturgy is inherently linked to beauty: it is veritatis splendor. The liturgy is a radiant expression of the paschal mystery, in which Christ Jesus draws us to Himself and calls us to communion."
The beauty of…Continue

Why "waste" your time asking another man to join the Knights of Columbus? Here's why:
My daughter frequently remarks about current events “everything happens for a reason.” For years I’ve responded “perhaps not, you just need to find a reason to make sense of it.”
I stumbled across a quotation from St. Pope John Paul II which caused me to rethink my position: “… for people of faith, there are no coincidences, only…Continue
I have a great friend, a brother really, who lives near St. Louis. I’ve been thinking of him lately for a lot of reasons, not the least of which because I’ll be seeing him in a little over a week.

A few years ago they opened a home for pregnant women providing love and care for mothers and their 48 expectant and…Continue

My very close friend, Rev. Christopher Smith, pastor of Prince of Peace Catholic Church in Taylors, South Carolina recently wrote a very compelling article regarding music in the Liturgical Life of the Church. It is so well done that I want to share it with you. I think that the catechetical nature of the article will help us to continue to better understand the climate of the Church, liturgically and theologically.
Fr. Smith: The first time I ever went to a Life Teen…
Recently, Raymond Card. Burke made the following statement, “The beauty of the Sacred Liturgy is given concrete expression by means of the objects and the gestures of which the person – a unity of soul and body – has need in order to be raised to the realities of faith which transcend the visible world. This means that sacred architecture and sacred art, including the sacred appointments, the vestments, the vessels and linens, must be of such a quality that they can express and communicate…Continue

The Precepts of the Catholic Church are a description of the absolute minimum actions required of Catholics regarding the Church.
The Church uses these precepts to remind us that Christian life requires a commitment to prayer and active participation in the liturgy and sacraments. If we fall below this bare-minimum level, we can’t rightly consider ourselves to be in full communion with the Catholic Church.
Each of these precepts of the Catholic Church is a requirement.…Continue
