Reflections with Fr. Mike Schmitz: A Blur (May 5)
We often move from one thing that dominates our time and attention to the next thing that dominates our time and attention. When we realize that Jesus Christ has ransomed us from our sin and from all that dominates our lives, when we realize that He is present and active, when we realize that He is still teaching and feeding us, then we live lives of reverence and meaning.
Word On Fire: Making Christ the Center of Your Life (May 5)
Jesus boldly proclaimed, “I am the way, the truth, and the life”. In order to be His disciple, one must make Jesus Christ the foundation of life and proclaim His Lordship in every area of life. Much like the rose window in Chartres Cathedral, a well ordered soul revolves around the great center, which is Christ. In this episode, Bishop Robert Barron begins a series called The Eight Principles of the Word on Fire Ethos with this key principle, namely, “Christocentrism”. Bishop explains how we go about making Christ the priority of our lives, and why we must know who Jesus is in order to do so. The listener questions asks why the Sacred Heart of Jesus is so important in Christian devotion.
Reflections with Fr. Mike Schmitz: Wholehearted, Part VII: Hole-Hearted (April 28)
The Little Way of Saint Terese is “little the entire way.” This means coming face to face with struggles and wounds we may battle our entire lives. With our confidence firmly centered on Jesus, we can love God as much as He possibly can be loved by our wounded hearts…by our hearts with holes.
Word On Fire: The Benedict Option (April 28)
Rod Dreher’s The Benedict Option: A Strategy for Christians in a Post-Christian Nation has certainly emerged as the most talked-about religious book of 2017. There is a widely-felt instinct that something has gone rather deeply wrong with the culture and that classical Christianity, at least in the West, is in a bit of a mess. So, do we need the Benedict Option now? In this episode, Bishop Robert Barron discusses the upsides and the pitfalls of employing the Benedict option during these difficult times.
