The Epileptic Boy

August 25, 2008 - by Fr. Antony Hughes
Faith is not the same as belief.  Belief comes wrapped in words, concepts and creeds.  As valuable as those might be they have little or nothing to do with faith.  Faith is not about propositions at all, nor concepts, nor words, nor anything one can or can not do. 
 

Walking on Water

August 18, 2008 - by Fr. Antony Hughes
Through prayer, meditation and contemplation we learn to enter what one writer calls the gap between thoughts where there is only silence, where there are no sounds, no voices, no images , where the imagination rests from its labor.  This is why Peter was able to walk on the water for a time.  For a moment he was able to enter that place where Christ dwells.
 

Of Deviled Ham

July 21, 2008 - by Dn. Jeffrey Smith
To love our neighbor, we have to love our selves first, and this self-love of course, is the state of being loved, being worthy of love, recognized and given proof of that recognition.  We realize that we are not unworthy of love.  We are reassured when we are listened to attentively with interest.  We gather that we are respected, that we do count, that we matter, that our being alive makes a difference in the world.
