Of Years of Love, AND A LONG GOODBYE [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2014
Of Years of Love, AND A LONG GOODBYE Dianne Williamson "Those who celebrate the sacrament [of marriage] say, 'I promise to be true to you, in joy and in sadness, in sickness and in health; I will love you and honor you all the days of my life.' At that moment, the couple does not know what will happen, nor what and joys and pains await them. They are setting out, like Abraham, on a journey together." ~ Pope Francis The game plan, as he called it, rarely varied. Each morning, he’d awaken first and set things on the kitchen table—her pills, the newspaper, a fiber bar, a banana. Then he’d return to the bedroom and rouse his wife. Often, she balked at leaving the warmth of the covers, so he’d gently coax her. Always, he was gentle. Once she was up, he’d lead her to the kitchen to read the newspaper. It took two or three hours to get through the pages, because she’d underline each sentence in every story with a black pen. After a while he found comfort in reading between the lines, becau...
The Art of Dying A Christian Fears Suffering and Loss [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2014
The Art of Dying A Christian Fears Suffering and Loss Sidney Callahan As aging brings death ever nearer, my fear of dying increases. These surges of anxiety are dispiriting. Shouldn’t faith in Christ’s resurrection liberate me from bouts of cowardice? I would hate to think that my fear is a sign that my faith is actually self-deception. I have often thought that my “atheist” friends in their heart of hearts really believe in God, but maybe it is the other way around. A Christian who is so loath to die is not giving much of a witness to faith in the resurrection. A real yes to God should be bone deep, not merely a notional assent. Yet I can detect nothing but firm and heartfelt convictions when I examine my mind and heart. In gratitude, I affirm Christ as the way, the truth, and the life. Everything that I know intellectually and have learned from living confirms my faith in the Gospel message. My fear of dying seems unrelated to doubting but rather wells up as some shuddering dread ...
Tattoos on the Heart The Power of Boundless Compassion [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2014
Tattoos on the Heart The Power of Boundless Compassion Gregory Boyle, S.J. Inching ourselves closer to creating a community of kinship such that God might recognize it. Soon we imagine, with God, this circle of compassion. Then we imagine no one standing outside of that circle, moving ourselves closer to the margins so that the margins themselves will be erased. We stand there with those whose dignity has been denied. We locate ourselves with the poor and the powerless and the voiceless. At the edges, we join the easily despised and the readily left out. We stand with the demonized so that the demonizing will stop. We situate ourselves right next to the disposable so that the day will come when we stop throwing people away. Kinship is what God presses us on to, always hopeful that its time has come. I don’t recognize Lencho when he steps into my office. Though that is the first question he asked. “’Member me?” Truth is, I don’t. He is two days fresh out of Corcoran State Prison. He ...
The Intimate Journey of Relationship with God [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2014
The Intimate Journey of Relationship with God Daniel P. Horan, OFM Every relationship begins somewhere. Some begin romantically with our hearts alive in the excitement of getting to know someone who we are drawn to for the very first time. Some begin at our birth with our introduction to our family. Some begin at school or work, where we first meet our peers and colleagues. Some begin at our baptism, when the immersion into water symbolizing both our dying and rising with Christ signifies our inherent immersion into a set of relationships (the entire Body of Christ, which is the Church) that can never be undone. Yet, there is one relationship that begins before all others. Some relationships are deeply intimate, where we reveal our true selves and are open to the other person’s true self, as with a spouse, close sibling, or best friend. Sometimes those same relationships are difficult or strained, causing us to become disinterested in another. Some relationships are simply professio...

FROM THE C21 CENTER DIRECTOR [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2014
FROM THE C21 CENTER DIRECTOR Pope Francis has called for a “Church that is poor and for the poor.” It seems that Francis is inviting us to risk being vulnerable so we can realize more fully our common connection to all humanity as “children of God.” The reality of poverty has challenged the moral convictions of humanity throughout history. How are Christians called to respond to poverty? More importantly, how do we respond to children, parents, or grandparents who suffer the effects of poverty? We might ignore these realities; blame a political ideology; volunteer or enter a career to provide services; or actively support or work towards systemic solutions. To begin this C2l Resources issue dedicated to “the poor,” I draw from a reflection by the recently canonized St. Peter Faber, S.J.: “With great devotion and new depth of feeling, I hope and beg for this, that it finally be given me to be the servant and minister of Christ the consoler, the minister of Christ the helper, the mini...
