Friends, this past Friday I had the great pleasure of chatting with National Catholic Register Executive Director Dan Burke about my trip to the Holy Land and why every Catholic should make a pilgrimage there at least once in their lives. I truly enjoyed chatting with Dan, and I know you’ll enjoy listening to it. In the case you didn’t catch us live on Friday or the re-broadcasts over the weekend, Here’s the podcast.
Violence, and then fire - an intriguing parallel between Pentecost and the George Floyd riots. But, unlike the violence and fire of an out-of-control plea for justice, the violence and fire of Pentecost were life-giving and transformative. They brought forth courageous men who went forth to spread the Good News to the ends of the earth. Many of them suffered martyrdom after having given witness to Christ. They were men and women of conviction who stood strong against hostility.
