Veritatis Splendor

"Keep your eyes fixed upon Jesus, who inspires and perfects our faith" --Hebrews 12:2

Pope Benedict XVI before our Lord

And only where God is seen does life truly begin. Only when we meet the living God in Christ do we know what life is. We are not some casual and meaningless product of evolution.
Each of us is the result of a thought of God.
Each of us is willed,
each of us is loved,
each of us is necessary.
There is nothing more beautiful than to be surprised by the Gospel, by the encounter with Christ. There is nothing more beautiful than to know Him and to speak to others of our friendship with Him.
~Pope Benedict XVI, Homily April 24th, 2005

"Young and Catholic: The Face of Tomorrow's Church"

All Catholics, young and old, need to go out and read this book!

Young and Catholic: The Face of Tomorrow's Church
by Tim Drake (Sophia Institute Press, 2004)

I was fortunate to receive a copy from a friend of Tim's, and it is one of the most encouraging pieces of writing I have read in a long, long time... As a young adult myself, and living in the heart of the St. Paul area (where youth and young adult ministry has exploded in the past several years), I can tell you that this book is not too optimistic!! It is true, all of it!

It may be a cold January evening, but I can still say that the new springtime is here, and it is starting to bloom!

Those of you who are reading this from the Minneapolis/St. Paul area, you've gotta check out this book -- you will find many familiar faces and groups in here, such as NET Ministries, the Theology of the Body study groups (even photos from the TOBIA conference), brief interviews with Fr. Joseph Williams and Fr. John Klockeman, blurbs on Relevant Radio and so so much more!
