• Growing in our knowledge of Jesus Christ

    It’s back-to-school time, a great time of year.

    I know many of you have been getting ready for the new school year with your kids and grandchildren. All of the archdiocese, confirmation and religious education programs are starting up again in our parishes.

  • Forming men of mission and men of mercy

    Editor’s note: This column is adapted from the Archbishop’s homily to for the opening Mass of the new academic year at St. John’s Seminary, Sept. 3, 2014. The Archbishop was reflecting on 1 Cor. 3:1–9 and Luke 4:38–44.

  • The beautiful truth about marriage and family

    In my recent columns for The Tidings and AngelusNews.com, I’ve been reflecting about marriage and the family, trying to help us pray and prepare for the important Synod of Bishops that will begin in just a few weeks. 

  • What is the family’s value in our society?

    We need to put the family first again in our society.

  • God’s magnificent plan for the family

    As the summer winds down and we move into fall, we need to turn our prayers and reflection to the meeting of the world’s bishops that Pope Francis has called for October 5-19 in Rome.

  • The new media and the new evangelization

    This week, we held our annual C3 Technology Conference at Loyola Marymount University.

     

  • Make time to pray

    As I write, we are preparing for the Feast of the Transfiguration.

  • Praying for the world

    As we look around the world during these summer months, we see that there is a lot for us to pray about. 

  • ‘You gave your children good ground for hope’

    The following is adapted from the archbishop’s homily at the annual Mass in Recognition of Immigrants July 20, after which thousands lined up, inside and outside of Our Lady of the Angels Cathedral, to venerate the traveling relic of Santo Toribio Romo. 

  • Do we have hearts that are ready for the Gospel?

    Archbishop Gomez is on vacation this week. The following is adapted from his homily last Sunday at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels. His column will return next week.

Voices

How we react to criticism and opposition

Father Ronald Rolheiser, OMI

Have you ever noted how we spontaneously react to a perceived threat? Faced with a threat, our primal instincts tend to take over and we instantly freeze over and begin to shut all the doors opening to warmth, gentleness and empathy inside us.
