Easter is a whole season!

We hope you had a great Easter Sunday! But don’t forget, that in the Church, Easter is an entire season.  After Jesus rose from the dead, he stayed with his apostles, teaching them and spending time with them.  He ascended into heaven after 40 Days.  The Apostles then prayed for 9 days and after those 9 days, they received the Holy Spirit which enabled them to proclaim the good news of Jesus. This is the day of Pentecost.

So keep on celebrating!  The song below is a great Easter song. Keep listening to it all Easter long to remind yourself of the glory of the Resurrection! Happy Easter!

John 8: 7

     Killing as a means of keeping things together is a tragically common practice in human society. Even cultures which have styled themselves as Christian have relied on this recourse to lethal violence, with prominent theologians throughout history offering carefully crafted justifications of the practice. Recently, however, Pope Francis came out with a clear denunciation of the death penalty in an emendation to the Catechism of the Catholic Church, stating that the “Church teaches, in the light of the Gospel, that ‘the death penalty is inadmissible because it is an attack on the inviolability and dignity of the person.” Although this Continue reading

The Apologist’s Angle

“For three years now I have come in search of fruit but found none. So cut it down. Why should it exhaust the soil?”

Luke 13:7

 

In the myths and stories of Ancient Greece, one of the more peculiar tales involves a young demigod named Narcissus, whose remarkable good looks were matched only by his self-absorption. Though many fell in love with him, he spurned them all with disdain, leaving a trail of destructive heartbreak behind him. This continued until one day while stooping to drink from a pool of water he caught sight of something that so enchanted and enthralled him he refused to ever Continue reading
