Fr. Rolheiser

  • The transcript of our trial

    The biblical accounts of Jesus' passion and death focus very much on his trial, describing it in length and in detail.

  • The Garden of Gethsemane

    Several years ago, Mel Gibson produced and directed a movie which enjoyed a spectacular popularity, “The Passion of the Christ.”

  • Our need to share our riches with the poor

    We need to give away some of our own possessions in order to be healthy. Wealth that is hoarded always corrupts those who possess it. Any gift that is not shared turns sour. If we are not generous with our gifts, we will be bitterly envied and will eventually turn bitter and envious ourselves.

  • Groaning beyond words: Our deeper way of praying

    When we no longer know how to pray, the Spirit, in groans too deep for words, prays through us.

  • What dark nights do for us

    After Mother Teresa died, her diaries revealed something that shocked many people.

  • Facing our Maker

    “Someday you will have to face your Maker!”

  • The human struggle with sexual energy

    The church has always struggled with sex, but so has everyone else. There aren't any cultures, religious or secular, pre-modern or modern, post-modern or post-religious, that exhibit a truly healthy sexual ethos.

  • The real challenge in creativity: To enter the song

    There are three kinds of performers. The first kind, while singing a song or doing a dance, is making love to him- or herself. The second, while performing, is making love to the audience. The third, while on stage, is making love to the song, to the dance, to the drama itself.

  • Religious coinage

    No one, be that an individual or an institution, controls access to God. Jesus makes this abundantly clear.

  • Our pagan resistance to the other world

    Sometimes while presiding at the Eucharist or preaching, I scan the faces in the front pews. What do they reveal?

Easter new life: What does it look like?

Rev. Jim Clarke

Volumes have been written about the theological significance of the Resurrection event, but Resurrection cannot be confined to theological concepts — it is a matter of the heart. The heart recognizes a deeper truth waiting to be taken into our lives.
