Lessons from Luke

We learn many important lessons from Luke's story, lessons for our families. First, Luke tells us that Jesus' family, in particular, was religious and made their pilgrimage to the Jerusalem temple every year. Actually the Jewish law states that every Jewish male was obligated to a temple pilgrimage, by taking Mary and Jesus along, this family was going beyond what was required. The entire family participated in this expression of religious devotion. We know from another part of the Gospel that as a grown man Jesus attended the synagogue regularly, (Luke says, "as was his custom"). There is nothing so fragmenting and divisive as having part of a family express their religious devotion and the other part not be involved, on the other hand there is nothing so uplifting and inspiring as having one's whole family share in religious devotion.

Who Are We On Christmas Day?

It's frequently called the Christmas miracle of World War I. The so called guns of August boomed in 1914 and began the war to end all wars, (a generation of men in Europe was obliterated). In November, Pope Benedict XV called for a cease fire on Christmas day. The response on both sides was "impossible", the German command said, let your hearts beat to God on the holiday but keep your fists on the enemy.

Come, Follow Me

"What should we do?" ask soldiers and tax collectors, and the average Jewish John and Jane Doe. The Romans farmed out the right to collect taxes in Palestine to petty Jewish contractors. The tax collectors in the gospels were their deputies, and these were despised because they worked for an occupying army and the methods of collecting taxes led to extortion all down the line. Soldiers were able to supplement their wages by intimidating civilians.

Doors of Mercy

This Tuesday, Dec. 8th the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, Pope Francis will open the bronze Jubilee Doors in the Vatican, closed for fifty years, to signal the beginning of a Holy Year of Mercy. And as Pope Francis has written: It is a time when the witness of believers might grow stronger and more effective. I offer the following practical ways for walking through those doors of Mercy.
