While Moses was feeding the sheep of his father-in-law Jethro, a Midianite priest, he once led the sheep into the wilderness and came to God's mountain Horeb. Then the Angel of the Lord appeared to him in a flame of fire from the center of the bush. Moses saw that the bush was on fire, and it was not burned by it. Then Moses said to himself, “I will go over to see this extraordinary phenomenon. Why is the bush not burning? ”. And when the Lord saw Moses coming to see, God called to him from the middle of...

Being “spiritual but not religious” is selling yourself short of all the benefits that come with practicing a religion. The fastest growing move in religion is, surprisingly, not a religion at all. One in five Americans identify as spiritual but not religious, and the number of people in this category is booming. I can’t help wondering if people who have faith, but aren’t involved in a church community, are missing out. If the latest social science findings are to be believed, being a person of faith who doesn’t belong to a church—that is, being “spiritual but not religious”—is selling yourself...

Robert Jangro In Revelation 11:3–12 is a description of two individuals who will help accomplish God’s work during the tribulation: “I will appoint my two witnesses, and they will prophesy for 1,260 days, clothed in sackcloth” (verse 3). Nowhere does the Bible identify these two witnesses by name, although people through the years have speculated. The two witnesses in Revelation will have miraculous powers to accompany their message (Revelation 11:6), and no one will be able to stop them in their work (verse 5). At the end of their ministry, when they have said all they need to say, the...

There is yet another form of wrongdoing which is all the more deplorable in that it is more common, and that is licentious talk. There is nothing more abominable, my dear brethren, nothing more horrible than such talk. Indeed, my children, what could be more out of keeping with the holiness of our religion than impure language? It outrages God, it scandalises our neighbour. To put it even more clearly, loose talk releases all the passions. St John Vianney Very often it requires only one immodest or unseemly word to start a thousand evil thoughts, a thousand shameful desires, perhaps...

Every year, on the first day of our Sunday School students, I love asking this question to my Sunday school students - Why should we learn Catechism? I do get many answers, the root of all these answers is the very reason for which the Catechism was written. We are all so excited about the Catechism in a Year Podcast that will begin next year, but before that I believe, we should all know about the know how of Catechism. It all began with an idea - The Idea for a Catechism At the 1985 Synod Intervention, Cardinal Bernard Law...

Most of the time when we read the Gospel of Matthew 6:32, which states " Your heavenly father knows that you need them", we fall into confusion. And that confusion has stayed with me since my childhood every time I read that verse. If God knew what I need, why do I have to ask from him? But let us look at it from another perspective. When Jesus was trying to make his disciples and the general public understand Matthew 6:32, what was he trying to imply - that we need not pray? Definitely not! Or else why would he...

The Catechism of the Catholic Church says: “The books of Scripture firmly, faithfully, and without error teach [the] truth. . . . Written under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, they have God as their author” (Second Vatican Council, DV 11). [103-107] The →BIBLE did not fall from heaven in its final form, nor did God dictate it to human scribes who copiedit down mechanically. Rather “God chose certain men who . . . made full use of their own faculties and powers so that, though he acted in them and by them, it was as true authors that they...
