Entrust, What Is Faith?

Faith cannot simply be belief – in God, or in a set of teachings – for “even the demons believe and tremble” (James 2:19). In this show, we discern what faith is, by looking at what it isn’t. Study Audio LOVE the Word™ is a Bible study method based on Mary's own practice: lectio without the Latin. This week’s LOVE the Word™ exercise is according to a Augustinian* personality approach. Listen (Receive the Word) Hebrews 11:6, “And without faith it is impossible to please him. For whoever would...

V – Visual Expression and the Artist

"Every genuine inspiration contains some tremor of that “breath” with which the Creator Spirit suffused the work of creation from the very beginning. Overseeing the mysterious laws governing the universe, the divine breath of the Creator Spirit reaches out to human genius and stirs its creative power. He touches it with a kind of inner illumination which brings together the sense of the good and the beautiful, and he awakens energies of mind and heart which enable it to conceive an idea...

V Is for Verbalize

Depending on where we are in the stages of prayer, we will "verbalize" differently, according to St. John of the Cross. In the purgative and illuminative stages, we have a lot to say to God, and He reciprocates. Verbal meditation becomes increasingly more frequent, focused, balanced, and peaceful. But in the desolation of the night of the soul, where God is preparing one to receive Him as He is - without images or words - verbalization comes to an abrupt and shocking halt. Indeed words are...

Observe: How Do I Discern?

While Mary gives us the model to strive for as we LOVE the Word™, Jonah is likely a more realistic example for us to study as we are practicing, because when Jonah hears the word of God, he does the exact opposite! How does God work when we are not obedient to what we've heard, whether it's because we are inexperienced, timid, suspicious, or flat-out rebellious? Study Audio LOVE the Word™ is a Bible study method based on Mary’s own practice. This week’s LOVE the Word™ exercise is based on...

How do I listen with small children? Is listening simply reading the scriptures? If I read passage after passage, book after book of the Bible, have I really prayed if I have not discerned God as a Person there, and adjusted my life to what I have heard? Mary goes further than simply hearing or reading the word in a cerebral way that does not penetrate or move her. She knows how to listen unto contemplation and union. Study Audio LOVE the Word™ is a Bible study method based on Mary’s own...

Lectio Without the Latin

Lectio divina, is Latin for divine reading. In the 12th century, a Carthusian monk named Guigo formally described and recorded the stages traditionally considered essential to practicing lectio divina: lectio, meditatio, oratio, and contemplatio. The LOVE the Word™ method retains the fundamental monastic practice and discipleship in scripture reading, meditation, and prayer that constitutes traditional lectio practice, but without the confusing Latin terms. Instead, we simply LOVE like...

LOVE the Word™ Introduction

Pope Francis called Mary the “mother of listening,” because she didn’t just hear the word (in our case read, also), she understood how to interpret it in light of her own relationships, circumstances, and habits. Modeled on the Annunciation, LOVE the Word is a new lectio method that invites our Blessed Mother to guide us in her own personal “listening” practice: L – listen, O – observe, V – verbalize, E – entrust. We learn how to LOVE the Word like Mary, from Mary. She teaches us to...

Catholic Eschatology in a Nutshell

"For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains it will do so until He is out of the way. And then the lawless one will be revealed, and the Lord Jesus will slay him with the breath of his mouth and destroy him by his appearing and his coming" (2 Thess 2:7-8). Amen, and hallelujah!

What Will Occur in the Major Chastisement

"Antichrist will be of Jewish extraction, of the tribe of Dan, will be circumcised, will rebuild Jerusalem and the Jewish temple, in which he will set himself up as God. Likewise he is to begin his work of seduction among the Jews who will accept him as their Messiah. Thus Irenaeus says of Antichrist: 'Jeremiah does not merely point out his sudden coming, but he even indicates the tribe from which he shall come, where he says, "We shall hear the voice of his swift horses from Dan--he shall...

The Coming Era of Peace

"In all of Christ's disciples the Spirit arouses the desire to be peacefully united, in the manner determined by Christ, as one flock under one shepherd. The journey of the Church, especially in our own time, is marked by the sign of ecumenism: Christians are seeking ways to restore that unity which Christ implored from the Father for his disciples on the day before his Passion: 'That they may all be one; even as you, Father, are in me, and I in you that they also may be in us, so that the...

What Will Happen in the Minor Chastisement

"The good will be martyred, the Holy Father will have much to suffer, and various nations will be destroyed...But in the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph...and a certain period of peace will be granted to the world. Do you want to learn a prayer?" the vision asked, "Yes we do!" the children responded. "When you recite the Rosary, say at the end of each decade: 'Oh My Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell, and lead all souls to heaven, especially those in most need...

What Constitutes Public and Private Prophecy

The Holy Fathers, we say, are of supreme authority, whenever they all interpret in one and the same manner any text of the Bible, as pertaining to the doctrine of faith or morals; for their unanimity clearly evinces that such interpretation has come down from the Apostles as a matter of Catholic faith (38, Providentissimus Deus). . We receive those doctrines which they thus teach, not merely because they teach them, but because they bear witness that all Christians everywhere then held...

What to Expect in the End Times

More than ever before in history, the foundations of human life and civilization seem on the precipice of destruction from every social, moral, cultural, political and economic angle. Only in apocalyptic scripture does the tone equal our own contemporary foreboding about the state of our world; nations; churches; communities; schools; families; and marriages; and how evil and difficult times will get. Global events inspire fear, and what follows for people of faith is often talk of the...

Israel, His Servant

“[T]he Church of Christ discovers her ‘bond’ with Judaism by ‘searching into her own mystery.’ The Jewish religion is not ‘extrinsic’ to us, but in a certain way is ‘intrinsic’ to our own religion. With Judaism, therefore, we have a relationship which we do not have with any other religion. You are our dearly beloved brothers and, in a certain way, it could be said that you are our elder brothers. (Pope John Paul II at the Great Synagogue of Rome, April 13, 1986).

He Fills the Hungry

If you're not famished for spiritual things, chances are it's not because you have feasted and are satisfied, but that you have snacked on junk food away from the true table. When your soul is stuffed with small things, there is no room for the great. If you don't have a hunger for God, perhaps it is because your god is your belly: "Their end is destruction, their god is the belly, and they glory in their shame, with minds set on earthly things" (Phil 3:19).

He Puts Down and Exalts

The most common cop-out against God, religion, or Christianity is “all the evil in the world.” What about the evil in me? Doesn’t the evil in me deserve acknowledgement and punishment? Doesn't my selfishness help cause and perpetuate “all the evil in the world”? God allows suffering partly because humanity’s evil works it and deserves it, but He redeems suffering to reveal something else. "He has shown strength with His arm" means He has bared His arm. The image is God baring His muscle to...

The Strength of His Arm

Most of what we consider "life" is sandwiched between two periods of inactive helplessness - birth/infancy and death. Weakness and dependence straddle human life. Helplessness, then, cannot be inferior to independence. This punctuation at both ends of my doing seems designed to teach, and even warn me, that neither the beginning nor the completion of my life depends on me. Therefore the value of my lifespan is not solely dependent on the strength, activity, work, or ability to contribute...
