• A time for tenderness and hospitality

    The immigration “issue” is not going away because immigration is more than a political issue. Every day we hear new stories of personal tragedy and families who are suffering because of our broken immigration system.

  • After the Hobby Lobby case

    The U.S. Supreme Court made a good decision this week in recognizing that Hobby Lobby’s owners can follow their religious beliefs and conscience in running their family business. 

  • Holiness is our daily task

    Holiness is the heart of our relationship with Jesus and holiness is the heart of our mission as Christians.

  • We need a new conversation about religion in American life

    Last week at the annual Spring meeting of the United States Catholic bishops, my brother bishops and I voted unanimously to continue our “ad hoc” Committee for Religious Liberty for another three years.

  • Some prayers and reflections for summer

    I’m on my way to New Orleans for the annual Spring meeting of the United States Catholic Bishops. As I travel, I find myself praying and reflecting on the many great things that have been going on here in the Archdiocese in recent weeks.

  • Pentecost and the gifts of the Spirit

    This Sunday we celebrate the great feast of Pentecost, and the end of the Easter season.

  • The Sacrament of Christian mission

    I love these weeks of the Easter season as we await the Ascension of our Lord and the sending of his Holy Spirit at Pentecost.

  • History and suffering in the Holy Land

    This week, our Holy Father Pope Francis makes his first trip to the Holy Land.

  • Rediscovering the Rosary

    May is Mary’s month and the Rosary is Mary’s prayer.

    It is a simple prayer, one that many of us learned as children. And as we grow older, the Rosary grows with us.

  • What does it mean to have a vocation?

    As we do every year on the fourth Sunday of Easter, this Sunday we join the universal Church in praying for vocations to the priesthood and the religious and consecrated life.

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.
