Corpus Christi Reflection
Fr. Abraham Feliciano, SDB, reflects on racism and its effects on us spiritually, socially and politically. He reminds us of a Christian’s responsibility to care for our brothers and sisters by reflecting on the lives of Christ and the saints. Fr. Abraham reflects on how we can respond to everyday injustices with love and thoughtful action.
The Month of the Sacred Heart
June is dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. In every language, in every age, the heart is regarded as the natural symbol of love and affection. We pray that this month of the Sacred Heart reminds you of the excessive love of Jesus! You can find prayers for this month of the Sacred Heart here.
Catholic Stuff You Should Know Podcast
In January of 2010, Pope Benedict XVI asked young people to use technology for the New Evangelization. One of the results of the invitation was this podcast. The style and format were entirely hijacked from the professional, well-researched and rather humorless podcast Stuff You Should Know. The hosts are not radio talents, but regular guys who happen to be Catholic priests. Enjoy the "lighthearted explorations into various prominent and obscure Catholic topics."
