07_Cherished Takes Time, Cherished Series

8/15/2022
Unity, permanence, holiness, reverence, glory: "For no man ever hates his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, as Christ does the church, because we are members of his body. 'For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.' This is a great mystery, and I mean in reference to Christ and the church" (Eph 5:29-32). This is where I get to tell you some wonderful news from here on the home front about the Catholic...

06_Mutual Submission, Cherished Series

8/8/2022
I've hit "wives submit to your husbands" pretty hard, but now it's time for "the rest of the story," "husbands, love your wives." Love is the center of everything, after all, and the wife's submission is only rational and only makes sense if her husband submits to her in love, by love, for love, and with love - the love of Christ Himself. Thank you to my newest Friends of the Show, Jean I; Anita W; Karen K; Phyllis T; Allison D; Sarah H; Ally B; Kelsey W; Tara D, for loving and lifting me!...

05_Authentic Love & Boundaries, Cherished Series

8/1/2022
Relationships (especially in our vocations) are Providentially meant to teach us authentic love - how to give it, and how to receive it. As a matter of charity, aggressive personalities must learn to respect others' proper boundaries, and passive personalities must learn to erect proper boundaries. And all of us must learn authentic forgiveness. Thank you to my newest Friends of the Show, Julie M; Denise S; and Amanda W, for loving and lifting me! Friends of the Show get all Premium Content...

04_It’s About You, Not Them, Cherished Series

7/25/2022
When pop quizzes come to us to through people we love, especially people we're married to, the temptation is to focus on them - their faults, their meanness, their motives. But those pop quizzes are about us, not them. The Holy Spirit is trying to heal us of wounds that are deeper and older than the offense in front of us.

03_Your Maker Is Your Husband, Cherished Series

7/18/2022
Healing is the "science of love," as Therese of Lisieux framed it. Because all healing comes from God, and God is relationship, we are healed in the measure that we know God intimately. We cannot love God when other things are prioritized over our time and attention. We cannot know Him if we are not consciously connecting to Him. We cannot expect to experience His unconditional love while holding a bag of conditions. How do we consciously connect to Him when we cannot hear or feel Him? As...

02_The Divine Romance, Cherished Series

7/11/2022
Love is the ultimate mystery, isn't it? Love is both the primary human need and the fundamental motivation of every human act: we're always, always, always either trying to get love or trying to give love. It's that basic. We need to be cherished and to cherish. Because it's as fundamental as the philosopher's "first cause," when our attempts to love or be loved are rejected or twisted, or when we are not loved well, we suffer the deepest possible suffering. On the other hand, because it's...

01_So You’re Needy?, Cherished Series

6/20/2022
So you're needy? You were created to be needy. In fact, you were created with an abyss of neediness because your neediness was meant to be satisfied. You were created to be cherished. Adam and Eve were created needy: they needed food, water, work, and intimate relationship before sin ever entered the Garden. The tragedy of sin was that it separated Adam and Eve from the Source that was meant to satiate their neediness. But Jesus restored our connection to the Source. So embrace your...

07_The Greatest of These Is Love, Spiritual Gifts Series

6/6/2022
Sandwiched between St. Paul's sermon on spiritual gifts in 1 Corinthians 12, and his correction of abuses of sign gifts in chapter 14, is perhaps the most beautiful treatise on love ever written. Should you have all the "best," most visible gifts, should you know and understand everything there is to know and understand, should you be martyred -- none of it profits you nor anyone else a thing, if not rooted in love. If the subject of spiritual gifts is new to you, the process of discerning...

06_Sign Gifts | Gift Clusters, Spiritual Gifts Series

05_Service Gifts | Gift Clusters, Spiritual Gifts Series

5/23/2022
While those with "equipping gifts" prepare others' heads and hearts for the work of ministry through discipleship, those with "service gifts" do the hands-and-feet work of ministry. Most of us have several spiritual gifts that the Holy Spirit arranges in "clusters" that help us minister effectively to others in the Church. In this episode, we explore types of service clusters and begin unpacking the nuances of individual service gifts. Thank you to my newest Friends of the Show Julie S;...

The Conference Is Over, What’s Next?

5/9/2022
Now that you've taken the quiz, listened to the talks, and read a little about your gifts, what's next? First: a warm welcome to new listeners and a sincere request to you to stay subscribed through Pentecost. St. Paul says we, the church, are the answer to renewal for the Church and the world (Eph 4), and you need a community in which to grow and discern your spiritual gifts in power and effectiveness. I hope you and I might even become friends. So give yourself the gift of God's word from...

02_The Person-Gift, Spiritual Gifts Series

4/25/2022
"The gifts also have a personal usefulness, because their service of the common good favors the growth of charity in those who possess them . . . In the essential work of new evangelization, it is now more than ever necessary to recognize and value the numerous charisms capable of reawakening and nourishing the life of faith of the People of God" (Iuvenescit Ecclesia).

01_Equipping the Saints, Spiritual Gifts Series

4/18/2022
Grace [charis] is first and foremost the gift of the Spirit who justifies and sanctifies us. But grace also includes the gifts [charismata] that the Spirit grants us to associate us with his work, to enable us to collaborate in the salvation of others and in the growth of the Body of Christ, the Church. There are sacramental graces, gifts proper to the different sacraments. There are furthermore special graces, also called charisms after the Greek term used by St. Paul and meaning "favor,"...

06_Suffering and Physical Healing, Just Rest Book Club

2/14/2022
If suffering is redemptive in Christ, should we really expect healing? In this week's book club, we talk about the two ways the Bible speaks of suffering, and pray for physical healing. The next series, Cherished, is postponed for a couple of weeks, until I can get the website back in order. Keep an eye on the Facebook and Instagram pages for forthcoming details.

1/24/2022
God's invitation for you to work with Him always affects those around you, and they will not always understand or support your efforts to grow and change out of old, destructive, but comfortable ways. How do we manage their expectations and needs while also addressing our own? We're moving into chapter three of Just Rest, addressing our emotions and the logistics of healing in the midst of other important relationships.
