Forty Days of New Life - Marcellino D'Ambrosio

Forward from The End of the Modern World - Father Richard John Neuhaus

Friendship - Donald De Marco

One of the most extraordinary friendships in the annals of music history is that between George Frederick Handel (1685-1759), perhaps the world's greatest composer of dramatic choral music, and Johann Matheson (1681-1764), a prolific composer in his own right.   Read more...

From Plight to Praise - Tim Gray

Israel’s immediate response to God’s mighty deeds was to sing a song of praise to God (cf. Ex. 15). This pattern from the Exodus, of plight to praise, characterizes the nature of Israel’s liturgical worship. Many of Israel’s sacred songs are either laments or songs of praise. But even the lament psalms anticipate praise, as the psalmist pours out his grief to the Lord so that he may be delivered and thus praise God.  Read more...

Gestures at Mass - FR. WILLIAM SAUNDERS

I have always wondered about some of the gestures I see at Mass - the making of the sign of the cross at the Gospel, bowing at the Creed and shaking hands for the sign of peace. Where do these come from? Are they required or options, since some people do not do them?  Read more...

Gestures of Worship: Relearning Our Ritual Language - Helen Hull Hitchcock

When our daughter Alexandra was a toddler, we attended the Methodist church with my parents one Sunday morning.

Give Me Sixty Seconds On the Clock Please - Carol Kennedy

When I saw the headline declaring that the Columbia crew may have had as much as one minute knowing what would happen before their ship exploded, my Catholic mind sighed with relief. But this was not the response of the writer of the article, or of the world.  Read more...

Gnosticism and the Struggle for the World's Soul - Father Alfonso Aguilar

At the beginning of the third millennium three worldviews compete to conquer the minds and hearts of peoples and cultures, the world's soul: materialistic relativism, Gnosticism and Christianity.
