  • Calvary was not an afterthought of God

    When God was going to redeem the world, he was faced with a difficult problem: How can I love the sinner and punish his sin at the same time?

    The cross was the answer. In Calvary we see the law of God and the love of God.  We see the justice of God and the mercy of God.

  • Artist donates painting of Mother Catherine Spalding

     March 18 was a momentous occasion for the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth, as the congregation unveiled a one-of-a-kind painting of Mother Catherine Spalding.

    According to Diane Curtis, director of communications at the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth, a tintype portrait was the only image the Sisters had of Mother Catherine, the organization's co-founder.

    When renowned artist Robert G. Connell offered to create a portrait as a gift to the congregation, they knew right away whom they wanted a picture – Mother Catherine Spalding.

  • TOUCHPOINTS: Vengeance belongs to God

     There is a new TV series called “Revenge.”

    The girl in the series is seeking to destroy those who wrongfully accused her father for something he didn't do, leading to his incarceration and death.  Revenge is one of the most primitive of human instincts. If we are unjustly criticized by someone we work with, made the victim in a crime we didn't commit, slandered by lies of others, or had someone we love taken from us by sensual actions of another, our gut response is to want revenge. 

  • COLUMN: Be still and know that he is God

     Be still and know that I am God. Psalms 46:10

    Noise pollution ... there is so much noise always around us: the TV/radio/computer blaring, the dishwasher whirring, the washing machine sloshing, telephones jingling, traffic blaring, lawn mowers roaring and a multitude of other sounds are heard during our daily lives.

    Our world has become inundated with noisiness. It surrounds us in our homes, our vehicles, our workplace and in our leisure time.

  • COLUMN: God's standard is love

     Beloved, let us love one another. (1 John 4:7)

    God’s standard is love one another. We are not just to love the lovable, the healthy, those within a 10-mile radius or us or just the middle class. God wants us to accept one another – warts and all.

    Twelve times in the New Testament we are told to love one another. Why 12 times? Love does not come naturally. It is hard for us to carry out this command.
