Pope Francis: "Jesus is the Bread of Life"

Pope 0802152015-08-02 (Vatican Radio) Pope Francis has urged the faithful to look beyond material needs and turn to Jesus who is “the bread of life”. Taking his cue from the Gospel reading of the day which tells of the crowd that went looking for Jesus, not because they saw the signs but because they had eaten the loaves of bread and were filled, Pope Francis pointed out that those people gave more value to the bread than to He who gave them the bread.  Read More

Liz Hoefferle: Aim for more than just avoiding sin; cultivate virtue

A ninth-grade class religious education class was learning about the moral teachings of the church when one of the inquisitive students wanted to know, “How far can I go before it’s a sin?”

While the student’s concern about avoiding sin is certainly commendable, the purpose of our lives is not simply to avoid sin. It is much more than that. We were made to grow in love of God and one another.

Father Richard Kunst: With St. James, tradition bumps into political correctness

As significant the Twelve Apostles are to the Christian faith, we know so little about them. Even the book in the Bible known as the Acts of the Apostles is a misnomer, because it’s really only about one of the original Twelve (Peter) and the late-comer Paul.

What we know about the rest of the original Twelve is nothing. There is simply no reliable contemporary writing about what happened to the other apostles after Pentecost. There is, however, plenty of tradition. Each of these men have had fascinating stories develop around their person throughout 2,000 years of Christian tradition, mostly written centuries after their deaths. None of them is more interesting than St. James the Greater, whose feast day we celebrate July 25.
