February 2015

church door The internet has been around for long enough that Parishes should really be on board with its benefits in communication. Most parishes have a website but many do not use it to its full potential. It is a brilliant platform for communicating what the parish has to offer. The website is an essential place for pre-evangelisation – it is an interface for the non-Catholic with your parish - impressions are made before the person even walks through the door. People do their research online and a shabby and uninformative website reflects on a Church unwilling to invest time in welcoming others.
DARET Jacques Visitation Next week we celebrate the joyous day of Christmas, Jesus’ birth. It is a beautiful time to walk with and pray with Mary who is a pivotal figure in this story, so much so, without Mary there would be no Christmas (and everything else that follows the birth of Jesus – like salvation...).  Jesus may be the reason for the season but Mary is the co-reason we have a season. 
GoogleJesus  If you type “Jesus” as a topic in Google Trends an interesting result comes out. It is not a simple linear trend line but a graph that looks eerily like my daily mood swings... it has troughs and peaks. Unlike my mood swings, the troughs and peaks are not random events, there is some order to them. I invite you to look at the graph below.

Our Brave New World: Is Oprah a prophet?

OrpahOprah

Oprah became a Goddess-like figure worshipped in the tabernacle called television. People latch on to her words as if they are from ‘the mouth of God’. 

Should Christians look to Oprah as a prophet?  Can people without faith lead us towards God?

Should I celebrate Halloween?

sqhallo  Halloween has become less of a commemoration of the human dead, their lives and the hope of the resurrection and eternal life but rather a festival of the subhuman undead with no recognition of a beautiful transfiguration but rather the end being a macabre dismemberment of body with no soul. This misaligned focus on Halloween is probably what causes deepest Christian concern and raises questions about whether it is good to participate or not.
