Deepening Faith

Like one submerged sees through a periscope
the land and sky that lie above the waves,
I had a vision that has given hope
that there is life for us beyond our graves.
I have believed since I have faintly seen
the heavens shine above the murky depth
where we are now as in a submarine,
subject to the whims of time and death.
But in the depths where periscopes can’t reach
the surface to give us a higher view,
I sometimes lose my faith that there’s a beach
and question whether what I glimpsed is true.

God; love; kindness; and world religions.

Christianity has not cornered the market on love. God’s love permeates all religions.

There is No Real Anti-Science Movement

There was a March for Science across this country yesterday. It did not draw huge crowds but the participants were enthusiastic. Unfortunately, many of the participants seem to be close to declaring that there is a war on science or some other foolishness. There is not.

To show you this, consider the staunchest climate change denier. If they went to the doctor and were diagnosed with a serious disease and were offered a treatment produced by the finest medical science in the world, do you honestly think they would say “Science? I want none of that. Send for an exorcist.”?



Prayer to Our Lady of Good Counsel (April 26)

Let us pray.

O God, who have given the Mother of your beloved Son to be our mother also and were pleased to make her beuteous image famous by its miraculous apparition;

grant, we beg you, that by fidelity to her counsels we may be enabled to order our lives in accordance with your will and happily reach our heavenly fatherland.

Through the same Jesus Christ, your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, for ever and ever.

R.) Amen.
