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

Have Birkenstocks, will travel, says Br. Hilary!

Photo from Theology on Tap in St. Paul, MN on July 21st, 2004!

Brother Hilary McGee of the Franciscan Brothers of Peace was our featured speaker, talking about "Following in the Footsteps of St. Francis" -- a smash hit with the crowd. TOT is held twice a year, in two "six-packs" of sessions (Wednesday evenings for six weeks), and is geared for the young adult crowd, ages 21-39, single or married, Catholic or not. We are unabashedly Catholic, and unapologeticly orthodox, with undiluted answers to the tough questions -- and we get an average of 150 young adults a night, many of whom have not set foot in a Catholic church since they lived with their parents (if ever). Praised be Jesus Christ, now and forever!

Our next TOT in St. Paul will begin on June 1st, 2005! Stay tuned for more info...

(It's that tiime of the year when I start thinking longingly of our summer events...)
