• Pope’s challenge: Don’t be complacent on clerical sexual abuse

    When Pope Francis met with six victims/survivors of sexual abuse July 7 in Rome, he showed empathy and compassion for victims/survivors both in attendance and in those not as he begged their forgiveness.

  • A visit from the goddess of night

    There are few more insightful studies into the spirituality of aging than the late James Hillman's book, “The Force of Character.”

  • What we do and why we do it

    To glibly speak of morals and ethics without saying exactly what we are suggesting by these terms is how many people, groups, governments and religions get themselves into trouble. Let us, at least, be clear in our usage and in our prejudices. 

  • Lessons in love from La Reina’s Class of 1984

    Barbie Kilbourne Larson is losing her fight with cancer. Standing with her are her high school “sisters” from the La Reina High School Class of 1984.

  • Secularist reactions to Hobby Lobby

  • Birmingham, Vietnam and Murrieta

    Sometimes a picture says it all.

  • Influx of immigrant children: Reminiscent of ‘orphan trains’

    The humanitarian crisis on our southern border — where more than 60,000 children have crossed into the U.S. since October — has parallels to the plight of largely Catholic children who were shipped across America between 1854 and 1929 on so-called “orphan trains.”

  • Images of God

    Sometimes we don’t appreciate what we’ve learned until well after the fact. A few years ago while studying pastoral theology at Loyola Marymount University, a classroom exercise created a shift in my thinking.

  • Christian Hollywood: Mobilizing via a tsunami of God’s Spirit

    “Keep surfing the Wave... the Tsunami is the Spirit at work!” bid Anthony Palmer from his ministry’s home in Wiltshire, England, last week via e-mail before he left for Rome to meet again with Pope Francis.

  • The most important thing

    When I was little, I would play “house” all the time. I’d have my dolls and my imagination to set the scene. I would carry my babies from room to room, rocking them, “feeding” them, and taking them for walks in the stroller.
