No doubt about it. Radio in the 1930s was the television and internet of today. It was a “bully pulpit” (to quote President Theodore Roosevelt) through which the American public could be reached. Catholics of average means in the Savannah (later Savannah-Atlanta) Diocese could be influenced by well-qualified and relatively unqualified radio speakers alike. One popular radio homilist was Father Charles Edward Coughlin, pastor of the Church of the Shrine of the Little Flower in Royal Oak, Michigan.

The Liturgy of the Word and the Liturgy of the Eucharist comprise the lengthiest components of the Mass.
 
But neither can be fully effective — that is, capable of achieving full, conscious and active participation called for in “Sacrosanctum Concilium,” the Second Vatican Council’s Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy — without a proper celebration of what precedes them.

With so much of our lives concentrated on work, personal and family responsibilities, and the inevitable detours to our carefully planned calendars, the arrival of Sunday Mass can sometimes find us breathless and far from spiritually or otherwise prepared to deeply participate in the liturgy.

Recuerdo una vez escuchar a mi abuelo decir, “cuanto más uno habla, más oportunidad hay de decir tonterías”. Esto es muy cierto, pienso que es mejor escuchar más y hablar menos. Lamentablemente en la actualidad todos hablan, pero pocos escuchan. Las vías para uno expresarse se han multiplicado en estas últimas décadas, y me atrevo a decir que hay tanta información en el internet que una serie de vidas no serían suficientes para leer todo.

About 15 years ago, I was invited to give a talk in Santa Fe about the Mexican border. I thought about that today because the person who invited me, Bob Glazier, an old friend, died recently.

Hace 15 años un amigo, Roberto Glazier, me invitó a hacer una presentación en Santa Fe, Nuevo México, sobre la frontera mexicana. Repasé ayer el contenido en PowerPoint, porque mi amigo murió recientemente.

 

Me di cuenta de que todas las personas en la presentación vivían la tradición celebrada en Las Posadas cada Navidad. Pero, más que costumbre navideña, era su misión.

The arrival of the Magi may be the most famous part of Matthew’s infancy narrative.
 
What are some little-known elements in both scriptural and traditional accounts of the Magi?
 
They were three kings, right? Not so. Matthew says only “Magi,” but since they brought three gifts, many Christians thought that meant there were three of them. Magi were priests of the Persian religion, so they were men of high stature but definitely not kings, part of the account piously augmented in later centuries.
