• Wearied in our patience

    Thirty years ago, before the airline hijackings of September 11, 2001, before the shoe-bomber and others like him, it was simpler to travel by air.

  • Our gaze upon the city

    Jesus, it seems, had mixed feelings towards the world. He loved the world, laid down his life for it, and challenged us to love the world, even as he criticized it harshly and stated clearly that it was opposed to him.

  • Hammarskjold and Merton on sexuality and desire

    The lusts of the flesh reveal the loneliness of the soul.

  • What my mother gave me

    There's an old adage that offers a wise counsel, even as it leaves us powerless to heed its advice: Pick your parents wisely!

     

  • A pilgrimage through nature, desire and soul

    Nature, desire and soul — we rarely integrate these well. Yet they are so inextricably linked that how we relate to one deeply colors the others. Indeed, spirituality itself might be defined as what we each do in terms of integrating these three in our lives.

  • Accepting truth, whatever its cloak

    When I was student in the seminary, I had two kinds of teachers. 

  • God’s quiet presence in our lives

    The poet, Rumi, submits that we live with a deep secret that sometimes we know, and then not.

  • 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.

Voices

Three kinds of spiritualities

Father Ronald Rolheiser, OMI

All of us struggle, and we struggle in three ways. First, sometimes we struggle simply to maintain ourselves, to stay healthy and stable, to stay normal, to not fall apart, to not have our lives unravel into chaos and depression.
