QUESTIONS I ANSWERED — It was a very lively show, what one listener called “smashing.”

1. What is the remedy when teenagers start having their “own personalities” and begin struggle with committing to the Catholic Church?

 2. What should a parent do when they catch their teenager committing mortal sin? What do we do when they abuse the freedom we give them?

3.  I’ve been a trucker for the past 15 years. My wife has left me and taken my daughters. The youngest told me not to come to her graduation because she said I had neglected the family. What should I do?

 4. I have a 6 and 3 year old. What steps can I take to help prepare them of the things they will encounter when they get older?

Epiphany? So What?

by Steve Ray on January 6, 2016

 What is Epiphany anyway? And why should I care?

MagiTissot sm2.jpg

The Feast of the Epiphany – the Magi, the Baptism of Jesus and the Miracle of Cana all combined – is really quite fascinating. It was actually a celebration in the Church long before Christmas was celebrated and eventually overshadowed Epiphany.

John Paul II gave 52 Homilies that mention the word Epiphany, or are centered on the Epiphany. The word epiphany means a sudden insight, a revelation. In Christian terms it refers to the manifestation of Jesus’ divinity to the world. The Baptism of Our Lord was such an epiphany as the voice of God revealed the true nature of his Son. In Cana the disciples saw his glory and believed, and the Wise Men understood who he was so that even the Gentiles saw the glory of God.

 

Today is January 6, the Feast of Epiphany and WE ARE AT THE SITE OF JESUS’ BAPTISM (see video later today) – which was more important in the early Church for the Epiphany than the Magi’s arrival.

********************************************

Catechism on Epiphany: “The Epiphany is the manifestation of Jesus as Messiah of Israel, Son of God and Saviour of the world. The great feast of Epiphany celebrates 1) the adoration of Jesus by the wise men (magi) from the East, together with 2) his baptism in the Jordan and 3) the wedding feast at Cana in Galilee. In the magi, representatives of the neighbouring pagan religions, the Gospel sees the first-fruits of the nations, who welcome the good news of salvation through the Incarnation. “

“The magi’s coming to Jerusalem in order to pay homage to the king of the Jews shows that they seek in Israel, in the messianic light of the star of David, the one who will be king of the nations. Their coming means that (us) pagans can discover Jesus and worship him as Son of God and Saviour of the world only by turning towards the Jews and receiving from them the messianic promise as contained in the Old Testament. The Epiphany shows that “the full number of the nations” now takes its “place in the family of the patriarchs”, and acquires Israelitica dignitas–(is made “worthy of the heritage of Israel”).”  CCC 528

Are You Born Again?

January 5, 2016

 Since we are all renewing our Baptismal Vows at the Jordan River today, thought this post from a year ago might be appropriate :-) It seems that God is kind of predictable in a way :-) since He always starts new things in the same way — with “water and the Spirit“. Consider the following: 1) The […]
