All Generations Will Call Me Blessed

February 20, 2017

The rosary is so powerful a prayer because it re-presents, or makes present again, the events of the Gospels each time and within the context it is prayed. "For Christians, the first of books is the Gospel and the Rosary is actually the abridgment of the Gospel" (Lacordaire).

He Regards the Lowliness of His Handmaid

February 13, 2017

"Why then is it the woman who is veiled (1 Cor 11:13-15)? ... We veil what is most sacred, and understood in this manner it is not so much that the woman wears a veil out of respect for the Church, but rather the Church gives a veil out of respect for the woman" (Jake Tawney).

My Spirit Rejoices in God My Savior

February 6, 2017

I asked the Lord, once, why adulthood is solemnly bereft of such excitement, if we’re supposed to be such a joyful people. I asked if, just one more time, He might give me that experience, the I-can’t-sleep-I’m-so-excited giddiness of Christmas Eve. What followed has been a breathless discovery of His full-blown love and the desire of His heart for me through the Scriptures, faith to faith (Rom 1:17), word upon word.

Mary knows. It's the Word of God that brings the crazy, twirly, fist-pumping joy.

My Soul Magnifies the Lord

January 23, 2017

Mary "magnified" the Lord, not because of the words she said or sang in praise of Him, but because Mary fulfilled God's purpose for her to the fullest possible degree. Completely unhindered by sin, Mary evolved completely into the person God created her to be, and in so doing, her whole life magnified the Lord. Mary, herself, is the Magnificat.

And Mary Said, Verse 46

January 14, 2017

Mary's name is from the root for myrrh, meaning bitter. The tree sap that produces myrrh gathers in "tears," when the bark is deeply scored, which are cherished and collected for their extreme value. Myrrh is the balsam of suffering, purification, and death, as it was used as an antiseptic, an opiate to deaden pain, and in the embalming and preparation of bodies for burial.

See how your Mother loves you? She helps ease your suffering, and purify and prepare your soul for eternal life.

An Introduction to Mary’s Magnificat

January 7, 2017

What happens when a prayerful young peasant receives a whisper so powerful that she dares not tell it? She hugs the secret close. And it is incarnated.

Going over and over the reality in her mind, she touches it timidly and unwraps it with equally unspeakable thrill each time. Looking at its significance from every possible angle, replaying the words repeatedly, jumping up and down and twirling around in her soul until she's dizzy with the implications, she "ponders it in her heart."

And when someone else, a cousin, reveals that she too knows and understands and believes what unspeakable thing has happened, the riot of praise and poetry and stupendous irony fizz out of her, spreading out in a pool of song that runs up the sides of the hills of history like a wave.

This is Mary's Magnificat. This is Mary's Song. Hers is the song of the Church.

A Throne for God: The “How” of the OT

December 31, 2016

When my sister was little, she ran to my mother after a nightmare. Attempting to soothe her fears, my mother told her she should pray to Jesus and remember He is always with her. With worry wrinkling her forehead, my sister replied, "But Mama, I need somebody with skin on 'em!"

The tabernacle and its Ark of the Covenant were the Old Testament expression of God's desire to be present with His people. Jesus, our new Covenant, and Mary our new Ark, carry this expression forward into the Church, where God is still present on His throne.

A Woven Veil, The “How” of the OT

December 24, 2016

The stunning vintage samplers crafted by my mother's respectful fingers might take your breath away.

Hundreds of thousands of colorful hand-stitches and hours of painstaking concentration and deliberation go into these linens of love, such as this Quaker Sampler called Vierlande 1826. Doesn't it make your soul sigh just to look at the joy that left her hand? Delicate finery is fearfully, wonderfully made.

The Old Testament tabernacle veil teaches that you, Dear One, are also uniquely "stitched" together with a similar unrepeatable purpose, careful respect, and wondrous appreciation. Do not doubt your wonderful nature, for you are "fearfully and wonderfully made" (Psalm 139:14).

Holy Smoke! Why Do We Use Incense? The “How” of the OT

December 17, 2016

My pastor loves the liturgy; he uses incense like a fumigator when it's called for. By the end of the weekend's Masses  you have to part the smoke with your hands to see the altar. The old ladies cough and sneeze and dab their rolling eyes, but I love the way it gets in my clothes and hair. I take it home and inhale the scent of prayer for the rest of the day. Combining incense, liturgy, sacrifice, and prayer was God's idea!
