Find Hope in Christ

As Advent comes to a close, claim the peace and hope that Christ offers us at Christmas. The Christ Child gives us special grace to grow in hope—that theological virtue which allows us to look toward heaven as our ultimate goal—but if you’re finding it difficult to accept that hope this year, you’re not alone. Many Catholics have struggled to get into the Christmas spirit after this exceptionally hard year for the Church.

Fundamentalist, creation, literal, Bible

Do We Take the Bible Literally?

The term “Fundamentalist” has at worst become a term of abuse and at times a term to designate someone who takes traditional religious beliefs, including moral stands, seriously (e.g., those who nowadays consider that homosexual actions are immoral because of what the Scripture says about them are regularly described as Fundamentalists). This latter understanding is vague to the point of confusion, because it would include all orthodox Christians.

The Nativity

The Nativity: the Sanctuary of Our Souls

This Nativity scene, partly unfinished and also damaged, was painted in the 1470’s by Piero della Francesca. He is a seer into the invisible world. Though with his sense of realism he is fully in this world, he is not of this world. He gives us a glimmer of another world far deeper and infinitely vaster than we had imagined.
