COLUMBUS--When rival sports teams face off, it is not uncommon to hear barbs and taunts thrown by the crowds on opposing sides as players on the field or court attempt to score.

 

But at St. Anne-Pacelli School, the athletes know that good sportsmanship will speak louder than any of the insults that could be thrown their way.

De los muchos sacerdotes que me enseñaron en el seminario, el más alegre fue un fraile dominico irlandés, el Padre Paul Murray. Era un hombre de oración intensa, fiel a la iglesia y siempre listo para compartir alguna historia. En uno de sus cursos titulados "Dios y los poetas" hablamos de la presencia del humor en la Biblia. También consideramos algunos pasajes de Santo Tomas de Aquino en los cuales el Padre Murray encontró rastros de humor en las obras del gran teólogo.

One day, King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon wanted his dream interpreted.

 

He summoned all of the city’s enchanters, sorcerers, magicians and Chaldeans. Nebuchadnezzar expected these men to know what his dream was without being told and then interpret it correctly.

 

The king became angry when the men said they could not do so, and he ordered all of Babylon’s wise men to be put to death.

 

Daniel, an Israelite who had been taken to Babylon to serve Nebuchadnezzar after the king’s siege of Jerusalem, heard what was going on.

Dec. 8, 2019, will mark the 150th anniversary of the opening of the First Vatican Council. On Dec. 8, 1869, more than 700 bishops gathered in St. Peter’s for the 20th ecumenical council and, most famously, defined the doctrine of papal infallibility.

 

Though the council engaged topics that remain highly relevant, it is often overlooked due to a sense that its teachings are out of step with contemporary views. Frequently, the faithful and scholars alike disregard Vatican I in favor of its successor, Vatican II.

Hace unos años conocí a un joven novicio que se preparaba para ser sacerdote jesuita. Lo recuerdo bien porque estaba en medio de un gran viaje que me habría resultado imposible emprender. Después de completar su primer año de estudios le entregaron un boleto de autobús hacia Macon, Georgia. Nunca había estado allí, y su misión era vivir completamente de la bondad y la caridad de los demás sin permanecer en un lugar por más de tres días. En seis semanas necesitaba llegar a San Luis, Missouri.

CHILDREN'S STORY

 

One day, the Pharisees asked Jesus when the kingdom of God would come.

 

“The coming of the kingdom of God cannot be observed,” Jesus said, “and no one will announce, ‘Look, here it is,’ or, ‘There it is.’ For behold, the kingdom of God is among you.”

 

Afterward, Jesus described for his apostles the days of the son of man.

Q. At the Second Vatican Council, Catholics were told that we should accept non-Catholics as our “separated brethren” and that we shouldn’t be overly concerned if they don’t want to join the Catholic Church. But I was taught since childhood that the only way to salvation was through the Catholic Church. Why the change? (Texarkana, Texas)
