The resurrection of Jesus from ...

Dickens — his relationship to the couple unknown — shares their residence, and his occupation receives the unadorned job description of “weather stripping.” Violet E.

Our Christian lives have become in actual fact what the Christian life essentially is: apostolic. So far from being ready for the apostolic life, we were brought up in a situation where there seemed no scope for this kind of life. So far from being formed as “apostles,” we were given a formation that made us less able to meet its ...
Is it because you feel like you're not joyful enough, kind enough, faithful enough, or gentle enough? Or perhaps because you find it hard to control yourself and stop yourself from sinning? If you said "yes," then you're like the many Christians who, at some point in their Christian lives, realized that the fruit of ...
Sometimes, one sees a similar attitude creeping into the lives of Christians regarding their need to study the Bible. “Is this particular passage important,” comes the question, “Do I really need to know all of this in order to make it to heaven?” There is a general feeling many seem to have that most of the Bible ...

This may come as a bit of a surprise, but the “respectful debate” that we experienced during the equal marriage postal survey has not come to an end following the crushing defeat of the No side, with the latest target being Sydney's LGBTIQ+ themed murals. In an act of petty revenge, two artworks in the ...
Far-right Christian Facebook group 'Christian Lives Matter', which mobilised its members to destroy a mural of the singer George Michael in Erskineville after the marriage equality survey last year, has joined the campaign against Dr Herrett with a series of furious posts to its 15,000 members.

This coming week is one of the most important in the lives of Christians world-wide. The belief in Jesus Christ as the Son of God and his sacrifice on the Cross to be crucified in forgiveness of sins is tantamount to the firm foundation of Christianity. The "Triduum" or Great Three Days - Maundy ...
Philip's encounter with the Ethiopian official in Acts 8 gives us very important lessons regarding our Christian lives, particularly our obedience to God and what the Lord wants to do through us. In this article we'll take a quick look at these things and talk about how we can apply them in our own lives. It will ...
For this reason, it is not surprising that we occasionally hear voices, unfortunately often expressed in print and broadcast media claiming to be Catholic, who criticize Pope Francis for introducing topics such as discernment, dialogue, mercy, gradualness to help us understand better our Christian lives.
To understand the formula of the Mass is to learn to imbibe the Eucharist in the lives of Christians. Pope Francis then listed the three attitudes that believers should always have and practice. He said these were "to give thanks always and everywhere, to make one's life a gift of love and to build communion ...

That has been the source of failure in many Christian lives.

In northern New Jersey, police picked up three suspected ...
Lent provides us with opportunities to deepen our Christian lives, our relationship with God, especially through the pillars of Judeo-Christian spirituality mentioned in the Gospel: Almsgiving, prayer, and fasting.

Certainly, Jesus would have expected the faithful to live good Christian lives, and preached against those living sinfully.

I would invite our good Catholic people, then, to see the season of Lent as a teaching tool of the Church that instructs us on how we can live virtuous Christian lives all throughout the year.

The early church is more than just the first group of believers in the Lord Jesus Christ; it's also a great source of learning and wisdom for our everyday life as Christians.

VATICAN CITY – To follow Jesus, one must set out like the Magi, leaving comfort behind, following the light and offering the Lord gifts without expecting anything in return, Pope Francis said Jan. 6 during Mass on the feast of the Epiphany.
“These are gifts freely given, and they cannot be lacking in the lives of Christians.” Pope Francis baptizes an infant Jan. 7 in the Vatican's Sistine Chapel. The pope baptized 34 children during the celebration on the feast of the Baptism of the Lord.(CNS photo/L'Osservatore Romano). The next day ...
Not just for the New Year, but also for the rest of the year of our Christian lives. If your house is anything like mine, there are remnants of Christmas everywhere.

But when we take a look at the pre-Christian lives of the Romans and Greeks in Galatia, we find that their lives were even more tightly controlled by another calendar. As J.P.V.D.

Here's something to chew on with your morning coffee: What if being better — sinning less, doing more good than bad — isn't God's primary goal in the lives of Christians? And, what if our struggle with sin (sin being another word for trying to do life by our own power and following our own individual bent ...
Church attendance should not be the defining feature of our Christian lives. After all, God doesn't take attendance. But that doesn't mean going to church doesn't matter. It does. A lot. Unfortunately, there's a growing movement of people who say they can be better Christians without going to church. They're ...
However, I disagree with criticism for prioritizing Christian refugees. I disagree with the argument that refugees should be treated the same, and it was wrong to give priority to this religious group. In fact and in a way, the spirit of “Black Lives Matter” actually applies to the “Lives of Christians” in Syria.
Is Lent just a religious relic from the distant past, or is it something that can still be a vital part of our Christian lives?

In Luke 4, Jesus is led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the desert for forty days. During that trial Jesus endured three temptations, temptations that are still utilized by the enemy to tempt us today. It's a mistake to think that Jesus was the only one to walk through temptation. So which of the three are you falling ...
May this be a year when the Holy Spirit has his way in the lives of Christians all across this community. For where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is peace.
